A CREEPY DOLL that takes on a life of its own is a well-worn trope in Hollywood horror films. Is there any truth behind this modern urban myth?
Dr. Judd Burton (BurtonBeyond.net), author of Interview With the Giant and the forthcoming Van Helsing Way, joins us for our annual Halloween show to discuss the spiritual reality behind Hollywood dolls like Chucky (Child’s Play), Annabelle (The Conjuring), the evil clown in Poltergeist, and M3gan. As Judd notes, dolls are not all that different from the “images” created by the pagan neighbors of ancient Israel (and by pagans today) to give locality to their gods.
If the apostle Paul was correct, and we defer to him in matters supernatural, then these idols—dolls, if you prefer—were, and can be, homes to demons.
