I've always had a soft spot for Matheson's films - they're pretty scary, as is this. Nice job.

I always find stories that give what is usually an inanimate object a personality or past quite entertaining. I remember when I was younger I would watch the Puppet Master and Child's Play. (my parents opened me up to the "horror" genre when I was quite young) I always wanted a Chucky doll, but I never got one. However, I had a Cabbage Patch doll that I wrapped up in plastic in order to "suffocate" it so it wouldn't kill me. Ah, those were the days! Makes me feel 5 again. I wish I could be scared of things like that again.

You do have a knack for horror, doncha Will? I don't think I've ever seen the Trilogy of Terror movies, but I have read some of Matheson's short stories. He's a damn good writer. Ever seen Child's Play? This reminded me of good ol' Chucky. Anyway, how I remember it, I saw Child's Play when I was a kid and that night ended up turning ALL my barbies and stuffed animals and dolls around so they wouldn't face me. lol. Translation: this was really good. I loved it.

Really cool story. The little african doll creature rings a bell, think I've seen at least one of those movies. Also bears a passing resembalance to a Dean Koontz book, Tick Tock (I think). Sort of scary. Although in this sort of story, I find the unknown is scarier. Giving the doll a personality and past negated a little of the creep factor. But it was good. Pity neither of the guys put up much of a fight. Keep up the great writing.

A great story. The dialog is great. Too bad that story is so short thought.

Ahhhh! Dolls! Through time, they have spooked me so well. Congrats on doing it again with this story.
