Cursed Objects from Horror Movies You Don't Want Near You

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.

    The Tape from The Ring

    Watch the tape, you die in seven days. It's that simple. It's an urban legend come to life, as the VHS tape is haunted by Samara, a disturbed young girl with a particularly wicked power...
