A trembling woman screams when she realizes the talking doll her child has been playing with doesn’t have any batteries installed. I’m not describing the terrifying midpoint of Tom Holland’s Child’s Play (released in 1998); if reports are to be given credence, this terrifying scene played out recently in Cusco, a village in south-eastern Peru.
The pretty dolly was designed to talk and move its head, but doing so without the requisite batteries was the first sign that something was amiss. Supernatural activity has escalated recently, with the “possessed” doll supposedly roaming an unidentified villagers’ house at night; the children offer unexplained cuts and bruises as proof of the dolly’s mischief.
Video supposedly exists online, but I couldn’t find it; according to reports: “The creepy footage also shows the child’s toy slowly turning its head to one side as the person holding it opens the battery pack to find it empty.” All I turned up was self-described “Christian Whistleblower” Jeff Daugherty, offering his paranormal services in helping rid this particular family of the cursed devil doll. Step One, he insists: Throw that scary little fucker away!
About Jeff Daugherty: UNINDOCTRINATE YOURSELF! Jeffrey Daugherty, Bible College graduate, and former 20+ year Christian minister shine light into the dark corners of religious Orthodoxy, freeing the original biblical texts from 2,000 years of suppression and manipulation by scribes, governments, and religions.
According to The Sun, UK (an extremely reputable source **wink*wink**): The villagers claim that the doll says phrases such as: “I’ll bring you your happiness” and “Where am I?”
Someone needs to get Lorraine Warren on this case; perhaps the iconic demonologist (whose case studies form the backbone of The Conjuring franchise) has room in Annabelle’s case for another diminutive demon!
Speaking of Chucky and Annabelle, both have feature films coming our way in the next few months! Cult of Chucky, written and directed by Don Mancini, will arrive in time for Halloween; David F. Sandberg’s Annabelle: Creation creeps into US Theaters on August 11th. I’d love to show you trailers for both, but we don’t have one yet for Cult of Chucky (get on it Mancini!); still, you can check out the trailer and synopsis for Annabelle: Creation below.
Official Synopsis: A nun (Stephanie Sigman) and a group of orphans become the target of a doll maker’s possessed creation.
