List Rules Vote up the scariest cursed object

Terror, death, and disaster caused by cursed objects is a familiar trope in horror movies. Viewers have watched through their fingers as dolls, puzzle boxes, books, boxes, cars, stones, and even (in one hilarious case) a lamp brought about all kinds of crazy evil on the unsuspecting object-owners. From early horror films such as The Monkey's Paw to 2016's The Darkness, there are plenty of cursed objects from horror movies that definitely need to be locked away and forgotten about. But which one would you least want to be locked in a room with? That's a tough call. Vote up the most terrifying cursed object and remember: never steal anything from a deserted town or burial ground. NEVER.

"You opened the box. We came," growls the lead cenobite (otherwise known as Pinhead), in Clive Barker's classic film Hellraiser. Protagonist Kristi opened the Lament Configuration, a puzzle box that, once solved, puts the cenobites on your scent and leads to unimaginable, blissful pain. Maybe go with a Rubik's cube next time, Kristi.

To start, this doll looks super creepy. But if that's not reason enough to keep it away from you, it's also possessed by an evil spirit. It isn't clear why any child would want to play with this thing, but the one in The Conjuring does, and it leads to some jump scare-tastic results. Should've left it where you found it, kid.
