The killer dolls in the movie are going to scare the sh*t out of you. You can watch some of these best doll horror movies on Netflix or Amazon Prime or Hulu.
10. Dolly Dearest (1991)
This doll is possessed by a Mayan spirit Sanzia. The plot is pretty similar to Child’s Play except for the fact that it is based in Mexico. Directed by Maria Lease, the film follows the possession of the doll and the interaction of the doll with the child. The escalating violent behavior and the disturbing actions of the doll itself, accompanied by the scary screen presence that the doll had in the movie all go to make this one of the memorable killer dolls in history.
9. Trilogy of Terror (1975)
This doll is possessed by the spirit of a demon known as He Who Kills. The doll made an appearance in a not so popular American horror anthology made for television. However, for cult horror lovers, this doll holds an integral position. A small but fiercely evil and persistent spirit, it is bound within the doll to prevent escape. However, Amelia, the woman in possession of the doll misplaces the binding and is found being chased around the house by this malevolent spirit. The ferocity despite the size is what is unnerving about the doll as it seeks Amelia out repeatedly in attempts to murder her. The tale ends in a twist with the spirit ending up possessing Amelia’s body. The Zuni Doll has remained one of the popular icons of cult horror for a long time.
