Creepy Life-Sized Dolls Spotted on London Underground

The Horror Equity Fund

Hey horror fans, Daniel here the UK based correspondent for iHorror.com and this week the London Underground takes a creepy turn to the standard commute, with Derren Browns creepy dolls.

We all know the London Underground’s unique setting has been a base for many horror movie monsters including my favorites, 2004’s Creep and of course 1981’s An American Werewolf in London.  However this time it’s not for a movie but a “Physiological theme park ride”.

Reported by metro.co.uk, yesterday the Underground was host to a couple of creepy human-sized, large headed Victorian dolls in an attempt to promote Derren Brown’s new theme park ride, which he says will be “The first immersive psychological attraction” and is designed to “Manipulate the human mind“…Sign me up brain man!

Derren Brown known for his amazing work manipulating the human mind commented on this week’s stunt:

‘I believe we are moving toward a future where theme park attractions not only give you a physical experience but also play with your mind and the concept of what is real. The Victorian twin dolls, who have popped up around London this week, are just a taster of what my new attraction has in store for visitors to Thorpe Park next spring’
