Occupying an admittedly small niche in the annals of horror is the killer doll, a concept that takes something so innocent and renders it into a force of sheer, full-blown terror. There have been several examples of this monster in books, TV and movies, but there are inevitably three who stand out from the pack and are usually named as the ne plus ultra of the lot. Those would be:
Chucky, a "Good Guy" doll possessed by the spirit of a homicidal maniac, first seen in CHILD'S PLAY (1988).
The unnamed and unforgettable Zuni fetish doll that relentlessly hunted Karen Black in the made-for-television TRILOGY OF TERROR (1974).
Talky Tina, an innocent-looking plaything that seeks to murder Telly Savalas in the classic TWILIGHT ZONE episode "Living Doll" (1963).
So I ask you, dear readers, which of these three is the one that makes you fudge your undies? For me it would be Talky Tina, hands down. The other two certainly have their merits, especially the Zuni warrior, but Talky Tina just creeps me the fuck out on a completely primal level. Discuss.
