Real World Horror: Haunted Objects Robert the Doll

Robert the doll is a popular haunted object, with many articles, blogs, podcasts and YouTube videos discussing him. The doll initially belonged to Robert Otto, an artist. It was made in Germany and given to Robert as a young boy by his grandfather.

After Robert and his wife passed away, the doll remained with the property until 1994 when it was sold East Martello Museum, although it also spends time at the Old Post Office in October.

By all accounts the doll moves independently and can change its facial expressions, it has been heard to laugh at times, typical creepy doll stories.

But there is more to it than that, local legend claims that the doll has caused car accidents, loss of employment, injuries, divorces etc Apparently the doll does these things because people are disrespectful to it in the museum or Post office, taking pictures without asking is a big no-no. However, it has never been explained how the doll causes these mishaps.

What do you think, superstitious people blaming misfortune on a creepy doll? Or unexplained paranormal stuff at work?

Real World Horror: The Haunted Cane

Last week I made a decision.

I decided that as I was enjoying the increased posting schedule for this blog that I would increase it further. Lol, who needs sleep!

However, I wanted to try something a bit different. The majority of my blogs are about writing, in particular, writing horror. Although, I do talk regularly about consuming horror in its many forms and mediums, such as through the internet in the form of Creepypastas and through video games and films.

I have decided as I said above to try something a bit different on Saturdays. Being that I am deeply attached to most things ghoulish and creepy I decided to implement this into my blog more by talking each and every Saturday about horror in the real world. I will be covering topics such as Haunted objects, creepy places and ancient creepy folk stories that might just be true (or that people thought were true at some point or another).

So, prepare for Real-World Horror Saturdays!
