This Creepy Cursed Doll Will Give You Nightmares

creepy cursed doll


I’ve always been a little creeped out by porcelain dolls. Laugh all you want, but don’t come crying to me when this little fucker shows up on your doorstep. According to the (always accurate) Reddit, this lovely figurine has been keeping kids in Singapore awake at night after it was found chillaxing next to a tree near a busy street. The doll is blindfolded, and it looks like it’s made from the tears of orphans and sadness. Why is it blindfolded, you ask? Because apparently it’s freaking cursed. And YOU will be cursed if you take it’s blindfold off. Don’t believe me? Take a look at its face when you uncover its eyes:

This thing looks PISSED. According to the story accompanying the photos on Reddit, the blindfold has the word “Bismillah,” which means “in the name of god” in Arabic. Oh yeah, and the doll is supposedly possessed. Because of course it is. The original poster also claims that the doll can move on its own and even talk:

“Original owner found that the only way to get rid of it and make sure it won’t come back is to cover its eyesight. The curse is rumored to have passed on to someone else who found it and untied the cloth unknowingly.”

Seems legit. Still, I can’t help but feel the urge to buy ALL the matches and gasoline and go to town on this little bastard, which seems to be the typical response on Reddit. Obviously this is just another bullshit copypasta Internet meme gone wild, similar to Slenderman and Jeff the Killer, but it’s still freaky as hell. That doll looks like me the morning after drinking tequila shooters all night. I don’t know about you, but I think I’m gonna lock my kid’s creepy dolls up tonight. Just to be safe.

      Thanks, Frances. I imagine your thoughts this morning were “Everyone who sees this doll without her blindfold is totally cursed. Let me go ahead an put a big ol’ picture of her eyes on the site so when they scroll down….”

      If I die in the next week or so I am totally blaming you…..and I will haunt your ass 🙂

      Well, if it kills you, then I’ll be long dead since I saw it first! Let’s hope there is wine in the after life!

    Total serious here; this is Singapore, there has GOT to be someone who can perform an exorcism on it. Why haven’t they called in a local priest? They’ve got Islamic and Christian AND Buddhist holy men who should be able to decimate that thing.

    Who keeps taking the blindfold off anyway? If I saw that fucker the last thing I’d do is go up and touch it.

      Dolls are weird…I’ve heard of some that have had exorcisms attempted that failed. (Annabel the big-ass evil Raggedy Ann, for one)

      But yeah, if a blindfold stops the activity, leave the freakin’ thing on!

      No but seriously, that doll is fucking terrifying. Holy Hades, douse that thing in Greek Fire and throw it in the River Phlegethon.

      And I’m sorry for the creepy doll song, I couldn’t help myself. =p

    • Elisa Probert

      June 14, 2014 at 12:50 pm

      Oddly, that is one of my favorite songs. LOL

      Of course I’m told my dolls are creepy but I just don’t see it. Millie here scared the shit out of the owners of the antique store where I got her.

      And yep, I’m eventually planning to put together a mini movie for “Creepy Doll” starring Millie. Even though she’s totally not evil or anything, she’s just really freakin’ old and and someone’s great-grandmother loved the shit out of this doll. (she’s like, 90 years old, hard to pinpoint since many American companies didn’t mark their dolls)

    • Jessie

      June 14, 2014 at 11:21 pm

      See, Millie’s not so creepy to me. I’ve seen much worse.

    • Elisa Probert

      June 14, 2014 at 11:36 pm

      I know, right? She’s sweet. The owners of the antique store want to sell me all their old babies…they’re creeped out by the lot. (and if I had the money, I would TOTALLY take the freakin’ huge Horsman baby they have in there!) They’re always offering to knock the price down and give me layaway. I’m always like…nah, not today.

      You can tell she was dearly loved and played with a LOT by some girl who is now a great-grandmother. Her heels are badly scuffed and the composition is chipped away, probably from “walking” as little girls are prone to doing with their dolls. Her fingertips are all blunted from being made to pick things up. She’s pretty clearly had some paint work done, and probably been restrung at least once. Her eyes are the original painted tin, no rust, with the original human hair lashes left on one, but fallen off the other. Her teeth are very fine paper or felt. I’m not poking around to find out. I think she’s beautiful, and she’s exactly the doll I always wanted, a classic American baby doll of composition.

      She came to me in a nightgown and knitted wool diaper. I found this handmade outfit and fully lined wool coat at a store that specializes in estate sale items. They’re a little small, but since Millie is retired from play now, it doesn’t matter much. The high chair is vintage also, found it at the cheapest thrift store in town. It’s nowhere near as old as the doll but is a perfect fit, so she can be charmingly displayed AND protected from my animals. Oh, and her shoes are from a modern baby doll that is in the closet and has no need for shoes right now.

      Omg, thanks for sharing that! I love music that’s cool and also creepy (like The Pierces “Secret.” Have you heard listened to Here Come the Mummies?

    I so want to take this thing home, wash its clothes and fix its hair and give its face a nice repaint.
    …Does that make me creepier than the doll itself?

    • Elisa Probert

      June 14, 2014 at 1:17 pm

      I’m right there with you. Lighten the brows a little, a touch of feathering, lose the eyeliner and add some color to the lips and cheeks. She could be cute.

      Of course we know I’m probably creepier than she is, too.

    • meteor_echo

      June 14, 2014 at 4:32 pm

      A tad of eyeliner would be pretty cool IMO, along with some eye shadows – and possibly no color on the cheeks. And yeah, hair restoration would be really due.

    • Elisa Probert

      June 14, 2014 at 11:22 pm

      A tad…not as much as she has now. She definitely needs some help. LOL Poor dolly has been neglected and now she’s mad!

      I had one with knee length curly brown hair…when I was five. You can imagine the state that wig is in! I sort of broke that one though. Played with her all the time.

      I totally thought the doll was cool looking…until I saw that eerie expression on its face. *Shudder*

    Should be included in the next version of Creepy Ass Dolls!!

    Someone attacked that doll with a Sharpie…no WAY that is the original paint job. No wonder she’s pissed. Reading through the Reddit thread, I’m seeing a lot of Muslim posters saying that the wrong phase is being used to bind the spirit, and that the right one may not work since it’s a doll. They need to put her someplace safe. Preferably with an old wise caretaker.

    i’ve had a doll that seemed haunted. He wouldn’t stay on his shelf, or I’d find him facing the wall, and he’d turn on fish tank lights. In general, when he was active, it felt like there was a three year old in the house. That’s when I realized…the doll is all dressed up in a sailor suit, notoriously uncomfortable for little kids, and stuff only happens when he’s the only baby type doll on display. So, put him in some overalls and surrounded him with other dolls of the same type (My Child Dolls, mid 80’s, I had a few LOL) and all the activity stopped. After about three years he apparently got bored and moved on, and now the doll is just a doll again.

    I had an internet friend at the time, who told me the reason so many dolls have this sort of thing happening is A. Because dolls are bodies with no spirits, thus hollow and easily filled. and B. Read the Velveteen Rabbit. A well-loved doll becomes “real” through the strength of it’s owner’s love. Not REALLY real, but enough where weird shit happens.

    There are no porcelain dolls allowed in my house. Seriously. I tell people not to buy them as gifts for us because they will go to goodwill!! Those fuckers are creepy!! Barbies and American Girls are safe. LOL!!

      American Girls are freaky, dude. All those 18″ clones are too.

      Don’t ask me why because I don’t know. I always used to want an AG doll but never got one, and now, I don’t like them any more.

    My sister used to turn all her dolls to face the wall when she went to bed, because they were freaky. She had nightmares where she woke up, and they were all staring at her. Again.
