A Little Bit of the Plot of Dollhouse of the Damned
Dollhouse of the Damned is the opening episode of The Haunted Museum. It was released on October 31, 2022. The episode was directed by Justin Harding. The interesting fact is that he is also the writer of the same episode. That alone can give you an idea of how good the episode will be. But nonetheless, the episode was very well presented, and it was required to be very well produced because it would set the tone for the show.
The episode features the family of Monty. Monty is a very generic common man who lives a miserable life. He has lost his wife, and he continuously mourns over her. But he does not forget his duties as a father of a juvenile daughter. Her name is Ava. He gifts his daughter a very pretty-looking dollhouse as a birthday present. In the meantime, Zak appears in the show and claims that the dollhouse possesses a demonic portal inside it.
Monty also has a son named Oscar. He is the younger brother of Ava. Ava has been in the role of a mother figure to Oscar. As their mother, Kristin, died after she gave birth to him, Ava has to take the responsibility of being a mother figure to Oscar. And it was very clear that she was not very interested in her own birthday, as she was more focused on Oscar’s formula than her own birthday gift.
The story starts to get interesting when we are shown that Monty starts to make figurines that look very similar to his family members. The story was sane at this point. But after that, it starts to get very uncanny. Ava starts to notice some strange things about the figurines.
She notices that the figurines are continuously moving around the house, and they are even changing their expressions, which is not normal for figurines. Among them, one figurine stands out to be the creepiest of all. And that figurine resembles their dead mother, Kristin.
The True Story Behind The “Dollhouse of the Damned”
The director Justin Harding and the paranormal investigator Zak Bagans did everything to create a creepy atmosphere, which is very vital for any project in the horror genre. But the ghostly atmosphere that has been created for the show is limited to fiction only. That’s right, and the episode does not have any relation with reality; it is completely based on fiction.
Zak has collected many paranormal things throughout his life, and he has built a very fictional story around them. And this is the reality behind the Dollhouse of the Damned.
