The scariest island in the world – 46 photos

0

This island looks like a deserted set of an 80’s horror movie. La Isla de las Munecas is located in Xochimilco, Mexico. This is an island filled with hundreds of hanging, decomposing, decapitated dolls.

A man named Julián Santana Barrera, who lived in Xochimilco, came to fame because he would collect the old broken bodies of dolls from the canals and rubbish tips, and then hang them from branches and tie them to tree trunks to keep away evil spirits and appease the spirit of a dead girl he had found.

He would state that he believed that the dolls were somehow still “alive” but “forgotten” by their owners and at night, these dolls are said to walk around the island killing animals, and other places were “discovered” in the early 1990s, when the area was being cleared of excessive water lilies.

Below are some photos (Sources: nen.com.cn, others) of this island with the dolls, of course. Take a closer look.
