You need to watch your back if you want to play around with these spooky childrens’ toys
Horror movie makers love to play around with unusual concepts to invoke chills in their audiences, trying to turn even the adorable and unexpected into horror movie tropes. Horror films centered around eerie dolls are one prominent example.
From dolls possessed by demonic forces to the ones that serial killers like to hide behind their backs, it’s strange how something that can bring joy in one context can completely unnerve in another.
Such an outrageous concept of horror seems to work well, as is evidenced by the huge popularity that films featuring sinister children’s toys have gained over the years. Who can forget the evil laugh and murderous intent of Chucky; or the creepy look Annabelle has plastered on her face while she invites dangerous demons into the homes of unsuspecting victims?
Here are a few films where menacing dolls and toys make an appearance, bound to give you sleepless nights.
