This new horror movie will bring out the pediophobic in you
Are you pediophobic? Pediophobia is the fear of dolls. It is derived from the Greek word “paidon” meaning “little child” and “phóbos” which means “fear”. This fear is common due to pop culture incorporating dolls in horror movies, comics, stories and Halloween events.

Famous horror movie dolls that are said to be one of the causes of Pediophobia include Chucky from the hit horror series Child’s Play, Billy from Dead Silence, and Jigsaw who already has a self-titled movie in 2017 after the success of the eight Saw movies. People who have watched these movies at an early age most probably developed trauma towards dolls.
Dolls appear scary because of their human-like features but lacking movement and emotions. They have a blank stare that most people find eerie. Some dolls are even designed with closing eyes which sometimes cause more trauma than normal dolls.
