Creepy Dolls: The Nightmare Collection

The horror genre has several staples that are bound to give you the heebie-jeebies: jump scares, creepy kids, basements, isolated settings and creepy dolls.

Nope, we're focusing on a particular brand. You know it, it's the happy-getaway-turns-into-a-nightmare subgenre made popular with the low budget cult classics that came to fruition in the seventies.
