Abstract

When I was about eight years old, I watched a film⋯ about a little doll that comes alive and terrorizes the owner. Many of the actions of the doll seemed real to me. This was particularly scary because my parents had just returned from Mexico and had brought me a doll that I thought looked just like the crazy doll in the film. For months after watching the film, I could hardly sleep and I would definitely remove the doll from my bedroom when I wanted to sleep⋯. Eventually my parents took it away so I could feel safer and more relaxed in my room. (College Student)1.
