The Doll by J.C. Martin






The Island of the Dolls is a strange and eerie tourist destination in Mexico, where hundreds of decomposing dolls hang from trees like grisly Christmas ornaments. On a trip to the island, Joyce Parker’s daughter falls in love with a beautiful but sinister doll. Soon after, she starts developing strange mannerisms that concerns Joyce. Her research into the doll’s past reveals a dark history, and the curse of a lonely child spirit.



A nice little short and creepy read. Dolls and talk of voodo on a boat sightseeing tour serve a good chilling little read.

“Dolls of all sizes, in various states of decay, hung from trees like grisly christmas ornaments. Most have lost limbs, eyes, or entire torsos to the passage of time. With their still plump cherub cheeks, they would have been pretty once upon at time, looking at home in a little girls bedroom – a little girl like Taylor. Now, their grimy, cracked complexions and missing eyes made them look more like mutant chunky dolls.”
