ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Last night my daughter and I watched the Night Gallery episode about the killer doll from India and it freaked her out (in a good way).
I probably should get her this Living Dead Dolls pencil sharpener, which reminds me of the creepy killer doll from Night Gallery. (Aww shucks -- it's sold out.)
Make one, Mark!
You could probably score the head at Goodwill.
It would be hard to get the shavings to come out of the mouth, but having them drip out of the neck would be almost as creepy.
It would be even cooler if they could make replicas of the dolls with the metal teeth in the movie “Barbarella” to sharpen pencils!
Genius! There are a number of public figures that I would like to impale with a blunt object…
I see several shopping and weekends of at the craft table ahead of me.
Darn it, ever since I saw that pencil sharpener via a Metafilter post a little while back it’s been taunting me with is unavailability … oh how I wish they’d re-issue the blasted thing! Mark, if you DO end up making something similar for your daughter, I most highly hope you’d publish the how-to … pretty please =)
I’m sorry… can’t help myself… but I HAVE to split a hair or two. There’s no such thing as a decapitated head – only a decapitated body. Unless we’re in some kind of anti-matter universe where you can remove the head from a head and still have something left. Like I said, sorry! Boing Boing rules, but I’m an editor with buttons and this pressed it…
Are the Night Gallery shows out on DVD? I was just thinking about this episode the other day. One of the creepiest ever!
That is one creepy doll…
Oh my god, that episode scared the bejesus out of me when I was a kid! And so did the one about the painting of a graveyard that changes to show an old man climbing out of his grave to get the relative who killed him.
Oh man, that episode is one of my all time red letter TV shows, in that it’s one of the few instances where a TV show actually frightened me. And I’ve had some other people tell me the same thing about that episode too.
This is so disturbed it’s brilliant again. I think I could grind down three whole pencils and still would have this twisted grin of amusement on my face.
Better a Living Dead Dolls pencil sharpener than a Bratz doll.
I’ve been collecting Living Dead Dolls for years, and that sharpener has been hard to find! Her name is Sadie btw.
