A Really Haunted Doll Story

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Author’s Note : Do you still remember the movie about a haunted killer doll called Child’s Play featuring the ever famous Chucky? I stumbled upon this story and that was the first thing it came to my thoughts because when I was a kid watching Chucky, this movie used to scare the daylights out of me. And after reading this true story (according to the website, at least), I will remember not to buy any dolls that could open and close its eye!

This is story of Robert The Doll. Also known as Robert the Haunted Doll, the story began in 1896 at the home of Mr and Mrs Thomas Otto in Key West. It was well known that the Otto’s mistreated their servants and so when a servant was requested to take care of their son, Robert Eugene, the servant who was rumored to be well versed in voodoo gave young Robert a doll. The doll was 3 feet tall, stuffed with straws and has very doll life like features. Young Robert decided to name the doll “Robert” and it became Young Robert’s constant companion since then. Strange things started happening when the Otto’s often heard Young Robert talking upstairs to the doll and heard their son answering himself in an entirely different voice.

In the beginning, they thought that he was probably just changing to his play voice but when they heard that the voice was entirely a different and that young Robert could not have made up the voice, they started feeling that something was amiss. Not only that, many strange things started happening around the same time as well. Neighbors would tell them that they saw Robert The Doll moving about in the house from window to window when there was no one in the house. The Otto’s themselves could also hear strange giggles from the doll and it was also then that Young Robert began having nightmares and screaming in the middle of the night. When the Otto’s rushed in to his room, they would find his room furniture all trashed and overturned and at the foot of the bed sat Robert The Doll. Young Robert would point and shout that “Robert did it!” Continue reading A Really Haunted Doll Story »

The Ghost with 6 Senses

Sunday, December 23rd, 2012

Author’s Note : This is going to be a short one. When my friend, Spider, told me about this I had question marks all over as well because she couldn’t really answer and wasn’t sure about most of the background story. Let’s just see how much you can understand from here.

Like I said, this story has basically not much background in it. My friend, Spider, who has a sister that owns a salon, told her that something weird had happened to her one of her 2 staffs recently. Staff A and B and Spider’s sister has always been quite close to each other and they would share almost anything. It was already known for quite some time that staff A has a relative that was having some problems with the supernatural world. Staff B and Spider’s sister knew about it because staff A would share stories about how her dad would try to help out her poor cousin.

You see, her cousin was constantly disturbed by this ghost and it had been going of quite some time already. This was where the question marks came around. Why was it that Staff’s A cousin disturbed? What did her cousin do? How did the ghost disturb her? Was there no solution to the problem? What did staff A’s dad do to help? Did they manage to get some sort of master advice? I couldn’t answer you because Spider forgot what happened. But luckily, in this short story, these are not the essential points. Continue reading The Ghost with 6 Senses »

My Hairstylist’s Ghost Story

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

Author’s Note : This is a story related to me by a friend who visited her hairstylist and not only got a hair cut back from her visit but also a story and it goes like this.

I just wish sometimes that my hairstylist would shut up and leave me in peace while he was busy cutting my hair. I wish that this visit was different this time and he would just let me finish reading the magazines that were lying on the tables but instead I got a ghost story to tell you, he said. It was the 7th lunar month and the last thing I needed was a ghost story but I didn’t want to disappoint him (just in case he snaps and decided to cut my hair all the very wrong way) so I let him entertain me again, just for this once.
