6 Horrifying Scary Doll Movies On Netflix | Dolls Who Can Make You Scream!

Finding a scary doll movie on Netflix could be an easy task for you only if there weren’t so many options to choose from. As always, I will be the sweet friend that I am and help you find the best scary doll movies on Netflix that will keep you up all night long. 

1# Child’s Play (2019) 

Chucky the doll is back in action with Netflix’s 2019 reboot of the classic horror movie Child’s Play. The movie’s plot revolves around Karen Barclay, a widow, and her twelve-year-old son Andy. The family of two has recently moved into a new apartment, but Andy isn’t happy with the move, so Karen gifts him a doll. Only later, it is found that Chucky is a high-tech doll possessed by the spirit of Chein (an overworked employee who worked at the doll’s manufacturing company). 

The store of the reboot is fairly similar to the original movie but what makes this one a worthy horror flick is the concept of a technologically advanced Chucky. Imagine, Chucky the doll finding you in an instant with GPS! (Gosh!!!!!)

IMDb Rating: 5.7/10

Directed By: Lars Klevberg 

Music By: Bear McCreary

Star Cast: Gabriel Bateman, Beatrice Kitsos, Brian Tyree Henry, Mark Hamill

2# Annabelle (2014)

Did you know that 2014’s hit horror flick Annabelle is based on a true story of a doll named Annabelle recited by Lorraine and Ed Warren? Plots around John and Mia, who are a lovely couple that resides in Santa Monica, California. When John gifts his pregnant wife a vintage porcelain doll, everything they built together ends up getting destroyed. When they think they have finally gotten rid of the doll, they find it living in their basement. 

Do you honestly need a reason to stream Annabelle? Annabelle is hands down the scariest modern-day horror film. All thanks to the creepy doll who turns out to be the biggest evil at night and starts killing people randomly.

IMDb Rating: 5.4/10

Directed By: John R. Leonetti 

Music By: Joseph Bishara 

Star Cast: Annabelle Wallis, Ward Horton, Patrick Wilson, Alfre Woodard 

3# Anabelle Creation (2017) 

Annabelle Creation serves as a prequel to the 2014 movie Annabelle and is the fourth addition in the overall conjuring franchise. The plot of the 2017 hit horror film revolves around Samuel Mullins and his wife Esther, who are grieving the loss of their seven-year-old daughter Annabelle after she accidentally steps in front of a car. The couple embeds their daughter’s spirit into a doll to cope with their tragic loss. 

The prequel to Annabelle is much scarier than the original movie because this time the doll is possessed by the spirit of the young girl (at least that’s what everyone thinks). Wait until you see the final movie and drown yourself in a tale of revenge and evil spirits.

IMDb Rating: 6.5/10

Directed By: David F. Sandberg 

Music By: Benjamin Wallfisch 

Star Cast: Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Samara Lee, Lulu Wilson

Before his wife’s death, Lisa was last seen with a ventriloquist doll named Billy at their place. The doll was an anonymous gift to the couple and became the only link connected to Lisa’s death. 

The ventriloquist doll that you meet in this film is possessed by the spirit of a dead female ventriloquist who has come back to take revenge by terrorizing everyone around her.

After Vanya loses her mother, she finds it difficult to live with her uncle and aunt. While completing a ritual to meet her mother, little Vanya mistakenly calls the evil spirits who possess Sabrina the doll. 

Sabrina is what you can call America’s Annabelle. If you happen to watch the movie, remember that it will turn out to be scarier than Annabelle. The haunted dolls, evil spirits, and gory murders, all are on the next level in this film.
