I think you went for maximum creepiness here. You achieved it.
Second gong in a row.

Nicely process Bill.
That is one quite menacing doll.
Both my daughters were more into cuddly toys than dolls (thankfully).

Very Stephen King. A horror story waiting to be told.

I doubt whether that doll will be top of any child's list this Christmas....

Looks like a still from the golden age of horror movies back in the early days of
Hollywood, Bill.

The look on the dolls face is really creepy. Thinking her next move before she leaps down to find the next child. A horror story in the making.

Oh dear. That glacial, fixated angry stare. The disturbing sense that some outraged pronouncement will be made, perhaps about imports of cheese and pork? Random. The horrifying sense that something is a dis grace. (Probably a faulty autocue - just out of shot.) I am alarmed. (I hope I can remember the code if I false trigger.)
Well, this is an impressive shot. Terrifying. When I first saw it I nearly shot myself.
I'm still having problems with irritable vowel syndrome.
I have no choice but to issue a warning gong across the bows.
There. That'll teach you.

Blimey, that's a good way of keeping kids out of the shop...
Who'd want to play with a doll like that.
Very spooky and brilliantly captured and processed Bill.

This is so creepy, I agree.

There are days when I cant find a photo that I feel really merits an award, then there are days like today when I find 9. None left I'm afraid, but I'll try to come back.
Creepy in the extreme - I wonder why dolls have that effect ?
