An open house known as “The Doll Asylum” in Portland, Oregon. Mark Williams and his wife Heidi Loutzenhiser love halloween so much they fill their home with over 1,000 creepy dolls before opening it up for the public to enjoy over the halloween season. Founded in 1867 by German Dr. Hermann Reinhardt, the Doll Asylum’s purpose was to receive dolls who were abandoned, neglected, or most importantly, showing signs of psychotic or murderous behaviour.

“Doll Maker by hobby, Dr. Reinhardt thought he could bridge the gap between the inanimate and animate and stomp out the dark thoughts that lay beneath.”

Ominously, the site later warns potential visitors: “If you find dolls or the macabre offensive, this open house may not be for you.”
