Another week in the Halloween Edition theme and I’m again stumped for my picks. It’s not surprising though, I knew already in the beginning of the year, when I saw the October theme, that I was going to struggle a bit. So here I am, a week later, struggling to recommend movies with creepy dolls.
This one’s a stretch but with the plot revolving around a guy making humans into wax figures works for this week’s theme. A group of teenagers fight to survive and not be made into doll-like-figures – a group that includes Paris Hilton! Hey, I never said these picks will be good, but I mean, the scene were she dies is worth it – though, spoiler alert, she dies quite early on.
Literally the only doll movie I could think of that I have seen.. but didn’t particularly like. But I am still a bit committed to the Annabelle story, and you’ll find out why I am this friendly with a movie I disliked with my next pick. Anyway, it’s a creepy haunted doll, and the movie has jump scares but I don’t remember much of it.
The final pick for this week is of course linked to Annabelle, because it’s the movie where we see this famous doll first. The Conjuring is definitely the best recommendation in this list, and I loved its sequel as well. For me the appeal is the investigation angle this franchise is aiming towards, and the main relationship. For me, Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson are AMAZING in this and I was rooting for them so much, which is rare for me in the horror genre – I rarely make such strong connections with the characters. But I connected with them, and now I can’t stop.
