Given vocal life by Jack Black, the villain from R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps books unleashes fellow monsters on an unsuspecting town. He also throws down with his maker: Slappy injures Stine (also Black) by crushing his fingers in a typewriter. Not cool, dummy.
The clown (Poltergeist, 1982)

The Clown Doll is a minor antagonist in the horror film Poltergeist, although it is more accurately described as an aspect of either the Beast or the other vengeful spirits – it’s main purpose was to act as a distraction so that the other spirits could abduct Carol Anne but it is remembered as being one of the more frightening entities in the film (in part due to many people fearing clowns).
At one point in the film Robbie sees the clown doll staring at him and, finding it creepy, covers the doll with his jacket. This foreshadows the events later in the film.
Later in the film when Robbie is about to go to bed he notices the clown is gone. He starts looking for it, looking under one side of the bed, only to see nothing. He checks the other side of the bed and sees nothing too, but when he gets up the clown doll is behind him, grabbing his face before dragging him under the bed.
The clown continues to choke him until Robbie fights back, ripping the clown doll’s stuffing out before bringing it on top of the bed and continuing to attack it before finally stopping.

Billy, the mechanical ventriloquist puppet designed by John Kramer, was a recurring item throughout the Saw franchise. It was used to inform the victims of Jigsaw’s deadly games about the rules and instructions they had to follow in order to survive and in the event of their survival, it would deliver a message of congratulations.
Typically Billy would appear via video, though occasionally a doll would appear physically in dramatic fashion, such as riding in on a tricycle or crashing through a window in a cage.
Annabelle (The Conjuring, 2013)
Image from “reporter”
Parents need to know that Annabelle is a prequel to the horror movie The Conjuring, about a possessed doll. There’s lots of bloody horror, splattering blood, and scary images, plus some jump-shock moments, shooting, fighting, and dead bodies. A pregnant woman and, later, a small child are in jeopardy. It’s all pretty terrifying. But on the upside, other than the scary/gory stuff, there’s not too much other iffy content of note. The “true” history of the doll adds an air of kookiness, but even if she didn’t house an evil spirit,
Annabelle would still terrify with her garish makeup, dead eyes and old-fashioned wardrobe that even Barbie wouldn’t touch.
Chucky (Child’s Play, 1988)
