YouTube is a magical place where you can stumble upon the weirdest stuff. For me, I often go down the music rabbit hole, researching old bands I like, finding music videos and then countless numbers of live performances clips from their careers. I’m also a guy that regularly writes about horror, so naturally, I’m always checking out trailers for the latest horror movies, short films or creepy clips.
Dolls are one of the main things that freak me out. It’s the uncanny valley of it all; the fact that they’re intended to look like real people, and for the most part do, makes the fact that they’re not real at all all the more unsettling. Case in point, I found my way over to the Eskify You Tube page where they create all sorts of “top 10” style videos. Below is their “10 Haunted Dolls Caught On Tape” clip.
And while you’re free to believe whatever you want when it comes to these, there will be at least one of these that gives you goosebumps. For me, it’s the girl at the 3:30 mark and I’m also pretty creeped out by the doll that keeps changing expression at around 3:50. And the last clip threatens illness on anyone who sits through it. So of course, I turned it off! Are you braver than I am? Watch the full 8 minute clip below:
And if you really want a challenge, try watching this right before you go to bed and see how well you sleep!
