Yes, I am afraid of dolls, as is my daughter. The "doll eyes" are frightening. I didn't realize until my Golden Retriever died one year ago, what that meant until I saw my "Leo" after his death. The vacant, fixed, dilated pupils telling me he was gone, no longer present in his body.
I've never seen a "doll" inspired horror movie as my imagination scares me enough and I fear I'd never sleep again.
In that same vein, clowns, which many children love, are scary in that same creepy, nightmarish way to both me and my daughter.
