Six of the Creepiest Dolls in Film

  • HeyUGuys
The menacing silhouette of a Jason Vorhees or Michael Myers in the distance slowly, intently, stalking their prey with the backdrop of chilling music is scarier than their brutal methods of murder. Inevitably the build-up is better than the final crescendo itself.

Planting the seed of impending doom and not necessarily seeing it is a brand of horror we looked at in our Top 10 Physiological Horror Films and is one being used more often. But forget about horror icons like Freddy Kruger and his knife wielding buddies – some of films most foreboding figures nowadays come in a much smaller package.

Here we take a look at six of the creepiest dolls that may look cute but are anything but.

Saw – Billy

With a total of eight films in the Saw franchise, slowly but surely we came to realise that it wasn’t Tobin Bell’s Jigsaw who is the creepy posterboy of the films.

WWE Wrestler Death Rates Investigated

WWE.com

A lot of people have been talking about Benjamin Morris’ 538 piece, “Are Pro Wrestlers Dying at an Unusual Rate?”

Like Morris, I am neither an actuarial scientist nor a demographer. So, our interpretations of the data should be taken with a grain of salt. My results were somewhat different from Morris’ due to a difference data set and changes in how we calculated actuarial predictions.

Differences in methodology from Morris

I also used Social Security Actuarial Life Tables, but my “expected mortality rates” for the age groups were not the same as Morris’. For each wrestler, I calculated what their age would have been as of today. Then, based on gender, I looked up the number of lives (out of 100,000) that were expected to still be alive and converted that to a percentage. His analysis looked at wrestlers who were on 20+ WWF PPVs through 2002. I went with a

10 Things You Don’t Know About WWE In 1994

WWE.com

As we have seen from the backstage happenings in 1993, sometimes the biggest stories in WWF/E happen off screen rather than on screen. We learned about how Shawn Michaels quit the WWF, how Vince McMahon’s first stint as a heel was in the Uswa, who the second Doink was, and that Hulk Hogan called the WWF Championship a toy.

Moving on to the next installment of this series, we take a look at 1994. On screen, this was the year that Bret Hart reclaimed his spot at the top of the company, and Owen Hart was brought to the forefront as one of the biggest heels in the company. Macho Man, Bobby Heenan, and Mean Gene Okerlund left the WWF and joined Hulk Hogan in WCW. And at the end of the year, Diesel scored one of the more shocking and unexpected WWF Championship victories in history.

All of this we know.

WWE Royal Rumble: The One-Timers Club

Gavin Jasper Jan 10, 2020

Some wrestlers only get one shot at the big time. Here are the Royal Rumble competitors who made the best of it...and those who didn't.

There’s something truly special about the Royal Rumble. It’s creative and filled with so many possibilities. Well, not always possibilities. There are certain years where the winner is so set in stone that even a child can find it obvious a month in advance. Yet they still rule because once every year, WWE puts on a wrestling party. A bunch of the roster will take part in one match and we get to see a snapshot of the company.

Older Royal Rumbles are like a class photo or a time capsule that best represent the year or even era and one thing that really magnifies what the Royal Rumble is all about is the one-timer. The kind of wrestler
