meh, it kinda goes with the whole coulorophobia (or fear of clowns) thing and goes to the uncanny valley.
The uncanny valley is a hypothesis in the field of human aesthetics which holds that when human features look and move almost, but not exactly, like natural human beings, it causes a response of revulsion among human observers. Examples can be found in the fields of robotics, 3D Computer Animation and in medical fields such as burn reconstruction, infectious diseases, neurological conditions, and plastic surgery. The "valley" refers to the dip in a graph of the comfort level of humans as subjects move toward a healthy, natural human likeness described in a function of a subject's aesthetic acceptability.
I think this is why most people don 't like dolls. I don't like them. I was terrified of the baby dolls that my family members got me as a kid, they kinda... stare at you... I find it unsettling.
Chuckey comes to mind... and the clown doll from Poultrygeist... Satan was making dolls in Insidious before attacking the dad and his kid, in The Conjuring there was a daemon doll..., Dolly Dearest, Dead of the Night, a lot of kids were afraid of Howdy Doodie, and tons of short stories on Creepy Pasta involving dolls.
But regardless of the "are dolls creepy debate", if you look at the little girl's hand, she's holding the doll's head in place instead of like... holding it's hand or something, which gives the feeling that if she were to move the hand the doll would probably float back up, thus doing this purposefully.... like, drowning it...
And plus it's in black and white like and old horror flick.
yup... It kinda reminds me of this creepy ass music video, Y Control by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, it plays with the idea of dystopia amongst children.
By far one of the most disturbing music videos I've ever seen besides Smack My Bitch Up, but still good.
I could send you a link if you're interested. Good band, good band.
