Creepy ‘Twilight’ Doll Is The Stuff Of Cinematic Nightmares
Have you seen the creepy Twilight doll that was originally slated to appear in the second half of Breaking Dawn? Let’s put it this way: Child’s Play has absolutely nothing on Renesmee.
Before director Bill Condon and producer Wyck Godfrey decided to user computer-generated imagery to create Bella and Edward’s rapidly-aging baby, the filmmakers put together an animatronic abomination that would have scared the pants off the vast majority of the franchise’s fans. Even this writer finds it a little eerie.
The folks at Yahoo! Movies recently shared a clip from of star Nikki Reed discussing the creepy Twilight doll that almost made it into the final cut of Breaking Dawn Part 2. If you’re curious to see the so-called “Chuckesmess” in all its horrifying glory, then check out the video embedded below.
According to Slashfilm, this isn’t the first time news of the creepy Twilight doll has surfaced in recent months. Director Bill Condon discussed the unsettling creation last year. Although he firmly believes the doll was a “misfire,” fans of inhuman playthings are probably wishing they’d opted for this instead of the CGI.
Here’s what Condon told Entertainment Weekly:
“Chuckesmee was a giant misfire on all fronts. Truly, it was one of the most grotesque things I’ve ever seen. It was a horror show! There was one shot where I call, ‘Cut!’ and suddenly she turns her head and mechanically stares right into the camera. It was incredibly disturbing.”
Fans who simply need to own the clip you see below should seriously consider dropping a significant chunk of change for the Twilight Forever Blu-ray set. The collection contains every Twilight film ever made and a plethora of extras and behind-the-scenes content. It’s pretty exceptional if you love the movies with an undying passion.
Despite the absence of the aforementioned creepy Twilight doll, Breaking Dawn Part 2 was a substantial box office hit when it arrived on the big screen last November. The movie’s domestic haul is presently perched at an extremely healthy $292 million.
With a little help from foreign moviegoers, the final installment of the series ended up making an extremely impressive $829 million worldwide. The success of the Twilight films helped open the doors for other young adult novel adaptations. With the exception of The Hunger Games, none of them were as successful.
