Yes, indeed the criminally possessed Chucky Doll[Ad] from the Child’s Play Movies[Ad] is based on a true supernatural story! The horror franchise follows the sordid saga of the serial killer Charles Lee Ray. A terrifying individual who was forced to transfer his consciousness, via Voodoo ritual, to a so-called Good Guy Doll for the purposes of alluding authorities. Possessed objects are nothing new in the world of the paranormal. Although they usually have the trapped spirit of a demon or some other higher-dimensional entity. Only in rare cases do we see human souls or ghosts possess inanimate objects. Most of these unusual cases involve the vengeful curses and spells of dark magical practitioners.
Spiritual Transfer Via Voodoo Ritual
The ultimate secret inspiration for Child’s Play came from a metaphysical incident in 1954. Within a small town in Louisiana, an escaped murderous convict named Leroy Manning came to his grandmother for help. She was a Voodoo witch doctor living in a remote bayou shack. The authorities were outside with guns drawn as ferocious dogs growled for their criminal prey! His grandmother attempted a consciousness transference ritual into a large antique doll she acquired as a child. There was no other escape left for him so they had nothing to lose! Her hope was to transfer him to the doll so his body would appear dead to the authorities. She had Leroy drink a mystical herbal concoction that would prevent necrosis when his body inevitably spent time in a morgue. Then once the supposed corpse was released back to her she would take his spirit from the doll, and embed it back into her grandson.
A Cursed Doll Is Born!
Mid-ritual the authorities burst in with guns blazing. They killed Leroy and his Grandmother who was standing too close to him. Leroy had foolishly panicked, and pointed a gun at the police! His death amid the half-finished Voodoo ceremony triggered the immediate transfer of his consciousness to the doll permanently! A police officer took the unusual-looking doll home for his kids after it was released from evidence. That’s when the supernatural serial killing nightmare began. The entire family met their maker with horrifying swiftness!
A Serial Killing Toy
Various unexplained sporadic murders have taken place from then up to present day across North America. One even in Europe when the doll ended up in a shipping crate on a freighter. Each time someone remembers seeing the murder victims in possession of the doll described as deeply disturbing in appearance. Various practitioners of magic have also reported being visited by the Leroy Doll as he sought to transfer his spirit to a human body. Most were unwilling, or unable to comply. Unfortunately for him, his original body was cremated by the State when nobody claimed his corpse. Those who attempted the transference failed and ended up killing the host body! The host body had to either be his own corpse or a live subject. If successful the host’s spirit would be relegated to the subconscious. They would be trapped in their own mind, and body with Leroy in the driver’s seat! In the end, it was apparent the original transference was botched. It seems Leroy was damned to be a creepy doll for all eternity!🔪 Read The Rest Of This Terrifying Tale On Our Halloween Blog…
