Reader Submission: The Evil Dolls

“Weird things started happening to me about a year ago. I moved into a new unit in Brisbane, QLD, and got my porcelain dolls back from my mother’s place. I have had the dolls since I was 5 years old. Everyone used to tell me they were evil, but I didn’t believe them.

Anyway, I put the seven dolls away in a box and left them in the spare room. I then began having nightmares, starting with one or two a week. After a little while, they started to occur every single night. I’ve never experienced nightmares like this in my life. These were full on extreme night terrors. I didn’t understand what was going on and was exhausted all the time from lack of sleep.

I then started to hear some kind of scratching noise coming from inside the closet or from just outside my room late at night – never during the day. At the time, I thought it might be a mouse. These things happened for a couple of months.

One time I was sitting in the lounge room, watching TV, when all of a sudden I saw two small red eyes on the side of my cat’s body when he standing on my lap. They were just staring at me. I looked behind me to see where it was coming from and saw nothing but a blank wall. I looked back and the eyes were still looking at me. Then they slowly faded away. I always felt a strange, uncomfortable presence in the house, but wasn’t sure if it was because I had just moved in on my own and was scaring myself or if it was something else. I think I used to make excuses for everything so I didn’t think I was going crazy.

On another occasion, I was lying in bed and had the outside hall light on when I saw a murky dark shadow come across the ceiling and into my room. It then disappeared. The last thing that happened before I spoke to someone about the weird events was when I saw a demonic-looking face in the reflection of the base of my lamp. It was staring at me. The thing had dark circles as eyes, and it wasn’t clear like a human face, but was definitely a face. I turned off the light and ignored it and went to sleep.

I eventually spoke to a lady at work, a Jehovah’s Witness, about everything that happened, and she told me that I had something in my house that was causing the problems. I didn’t fully believe it was the dolls at the time, but I ended up throwing them out in the industrial bin that weekend because something needed to happen to make it stop. The dolls were worth hundreds of dollars, but I was not risking it. That night, I had an extreme nightmare about them. The dolls were at my Nan’s house, where they had been originally, and they had killed my cat. In the dream, I found his body in the kitchen sink. My cat is still alive now, LOL, but I always check on him to make sure he is safe.

It’s been over 9 months now, and since getting rid of the dolls I have had no nightmares, no weird noises, or feelings of another presence. I feel stronger and healthier, and I always pray from time to time, asking the lord to protect me and Hugo (my cat). Everything stopped after I threw out those dolls. I now know not to ignore things and to become more in touch with my spiritual side. And I will never buy my daughter a porcelain doll!”
