Why is seeing an old, dirty doll so creepy?
You see them in haunted houses and movies that deal with abandoned locations--old dolls that are dirty and are without clothing. Why is it so creepy? What's your opinion?
You know I have no idea why, but you are correct there is something about it that is very creepy!
I think it's because seeing the old, dirty doll in a location such as a haunted house causes you to wonder what happened to the child who used to play with the doll. You begin to imagine all sorts of terrible things happened to the child.
In particular it is baby dolls who convey the creepy feeling. An old, dirty barbie doll - so what? It's the idea of a baby being neglected and forgotten - just left somewhere. The baby should be dead from neglect. Yet the baby's face is still happy and alive - like a weird ghost.
I don't think there's a certain answer, but I'm guessing that it's a psychological factor..... a reminder of innocence, or just their gaze. Who knows? Surrealism is my best bet.
