Scary, Vintage Ventriloquists & Dummies
Ever since I saw the 1978 cult movie Magic starring Anthony Hopkins and Ann Margaret, I’ve kinda been creeped-out by ventriloquists and their old wooden dummies. Okay, I take that back. I have ALWAYS been creeped-out by ventriloquists.
Yep. On the official Creep Factor Scale, I would have to put a ventriloquist and his or her demented little dummy right up there near the top of the list right beneath Clown Paintings and Roseanne Barr.
Now rightly so, ventriloquism has been an honest way to make a living throughout the ages. But that still doesn’t make me sleep better at night. So I am hopin’ by sharing this post with ya’ll, it will somehow help me cut down on my therapy bill.
So put yer eye on some of the creepiest, scariest, twisted, vintage ventriloquists and their deranged dummies. Enjoy! Oh… and leave a light on tonight!
See what I mean! CREEPY! And just how does a dummy get such nasty sores on it’s wooden face?!?
Oh, yes. Scar the child right from birth.
Severed talking heads. That’s comforting.
That dummy sure is scoping out one of those little boys! “Hello, Timmy!”
The Vernon Family in their Death Shroud… No, that’s not creepy at all!!
WoW. I think they’re twins!
That is one disturbing relationship.
How to spread the Gospel without moving your lips.
I hate it when a dummy gets more than me.
Go figure. He was busted in Detroit.
Nom nom nom nom nom

Yikes! Is that his dead mother?????
So… who’s getting who drunk here?
I hope singing is all she’s doing.
NASCAR’s Kevin Harvick gettin’ into the act… I think that’s Jimmie Johnson on his lap.
Geraldine and Ricky: The Love Affair Years
Geraldine and Ricky: The Later Years… They were not as so kind to Geraldine.
Son of Sam heard voices from a dog that told him to kill. I fear this could be worse.
Of all the cross-eyed cannibalistic dummies in the world, that one just may be the creepiest!
Yes. Do you know I hate you?
The hair alone gives me nightmares.
Never let your son go camping with these two.
If he tells you he has candy in his van… RUN!
The creepiest of’em all!
