If this story doesn't scare you, no story will...

Lucas buys his daughter an old, dirty rag doll at a yard sale one day. But when they return home, they realize they may have brought a sinister force back with them. Are the strange occurrences that soon take place supernatural or mere coincidence? Either way, they lead to an ending you will not soon, if ever, forget.

Ragdoll is a truly creepy story. It’s incredibly short, only 14 pages, and boy do those pages fly by.


This story is somewhat predictable, but not completely. I expected the ending, but not all of it. The characters are what you would expect. Dad buys his daughter a doll which turns out to be more than he paid for.


Because it’s so short, the characters and overall story isn’t as drawn out or developed as I would have liked. I would have liked a bit more details about the mom, and where the doll had originated etc.


Overall Ragdoll is a super fast and creepy read. It wasn’t really scary to me, just creepy.

About Troy McCombs

Troy McCombs has been writing since the young age of nine, when his third grade teacher had her students write a short story for class credit. He was hooked instantly, and knew that's what he wanted to do with his life. As a very frightened child and teen, he took special solace in the horror genre, often dreaming up scary worlds filled with imaginary monsters in order to deal with a crippling anxiety disorder he's had all his life. He also writes coming-of-age dramas and screenplays. His favorite authors include Lovecraft and Stephen King. He's even got posters of them on his wall, there to inspire him whenever he needs some extra motivation.

Aside from writing, Troy enjoys working out, playing guitar, reading, watching movies--and hoping to produce some, one day--and spending lots of time with his four-legged friend, Lolly, in West Virginia.
