What I Can Tell You:

I started out watching this with the kids, mainly Goddess who loves her Scooby Doo and has limited bad dreams due to it. However, After 10 minutes my husband and I agreed that this was just going to be too scary for her. She has successful been able to watch the R.L. Stine Goosebumps movies but this was about a doll! A scary, life size, looks like the recipient of the doll, scary! The doll literally looks like the little girl who receive it from her loving Daddy.

Spoiled, Lilly is thrilled to have her life sized Lilly Doll. But when her mother takes Lilly from her as punishment, the doll starts doing things to get Lilly into trouble. Lilly knows the doll doesn't like her and "moves" and can't get anyone to believe her.

Goddess never saw the doll come to life and believe me this is a good thing. As someone who was always afraid of my dolls at night, this was s-c-a-r-y for me.

Come on, look at this doll.

While I know this was for creative purposes, I was disturbed by the fact that a garbage truck ran over a (life size) doll laying in the street and dragged it, never stopping to call 911 on the potential child they just killed.

Very well done. Good performances and creep.

Check out the video here and be sure to tune into The Haunting Hour on Hub.
