The Cautionary Tale of Callalilly


"A temper, if not tamed,

can leave a little rag doll maimed."


This is a short film, from doll artist Christy Kane, that definitely falls into the delightfully dark category. But, beware if little dolls freak you out!

You can check out Christy Kane's Etsy shop here.

  1. I did get to see this before because the name looked so familiar. The chiodo brothers brought us the great Killer Klowns from Outer Space. They also work on other films for special effects. Dolls are so creepy to me lol. Imagine that doll heading towards you I know I'd be scared.

  5. I thought it filmed beautifully. I use to think dolls were creepy but then I was feeling like...I can just kick one over & run away. Or swing somewhere & again...run away. But! If the dol is as big as me or bigger--I'm trouble. :P

  6. Haha! Yes, I suppose the little ones couldn't really overpower you! Creepy dolls are really more like creepy kids... they might get you while you're sleeping, or cause a nasty "accident" to happen!!

  7. Yes, I think they got the creepy/beautiful balance perfectly right in this film!

  8. Im amazed. I came across this in a very peculiar way... I was sorting through my clothes and found an old shirt I have. I found it at a second hand store and was so enthraled I begged my grandmother to buy it for me. the shirt is red and black striped with 3 creepy little rag dolls and accross it is written 'A temper, if not taimed, will leave a little rag doll maimed' and so out of curiosity I googled what it may be from and was pleasantly surpised to find this!
    if you would like feel free to check out pics of it i posted here on Deviantart.com
