Turning its creepiest dolls loose, the History Center of Olmsted County in Rochester has posted photos and videos of its terrifying miniatures on social media, taking votes for the most nightmarish one.

Voting is set to continue through Thursday.

Dan Nowakowski, the museum’s curator, told Minnesota Public Radio that for a lot of the dolls, the freakiness is all in the eyes.

Some of the weird dolls have movable eyelids that snap open when you lift the dolls up. The paint has chipped off the face of another contender, leaving it looking like a mummy.

Nowakowski said the dolls weren’t intended to be frightening when they were made, but damages from use and the passage of time have turned them creepy.
