Zak Bagans Adds Original Chucky Prop and Poltergeist Clown Doll To Haunted Museum

Normally I don’t write too many news articles unless it’s something sent directly to me via a press release and falls in line with NN’s nostalgic fuzzies oath. However, being as how this one hit my hometown and involves two of horror’s biggest creepy iconic dolls, I just couldn’t pass up spreading the news that Las Vegas resident Zak Bagans just bought the original Poltergeist clown doll and one of the used Chucky dolls from the 1988 film to proudly set up in his Haunted Museum here in Sin City.

Am I surprised the guy who has Ed Gein’s cauldron and briefly the original Annabelle doll made these purchases? Not a bit. Do I think these dolls are haunted? Again, hell no. But I suppose it will bring a new crowd of curious folks over to the famed house of horrors with loyal fans to the franchise.

About a year and a half ago, myself and the better half visited the now famed museum along with a group of friends. Us being locals and all had to keep our horror cards valid with being able to say we walked though the 30-room mansion. At the time of our visit, Anabelle WAS there but not on display. However, that didn’t stop our tour guide from pulling back an ominous curtain as the group pressed on to another room exposing the Raggedy devil to a friend in the group. Of to which I was a little pissed that my anxiousness to get to the Bela Lugosi mirror backfired on me. Just a little tip for those that may visit in the future- WAIT FOR THE TOUR GUIDE TO LEAVE THE ROOM.

Anyways, Bagans purchased the Poltergeist prop nightmare at an auction for a whopping $80,000 and states to TMZ that for the time, the creep-tastic nightmare fuel will safely stay in his room for a test run and will end up in the museum at a date yet to be determined.

1982’s Poltergeist has long been rumored to be a film riddled with some sort of curse extending into the sequels that include a string of bad luck and many deaths surrounding the movies. While I myself think that much of those occurrences are mere coincidences, one of the most questionable details coming from the original film was Robbie’s Superbowl poster hanging above his bed predicted the date of co-star Heather O’ Rourke fell fatally ill in 1988. The cursed rumor of course, was probably fuel for Bagans to obtain the little guy.

More recently also, the Ghost Adventures star managed to snag one of the Good Guy props from the original 1988 Child’s Play film; for $11,000. Not as much as clown boy above, but still a certainly good chuck of change. The movie prop as well has a TBD debut date at the Vegas attraction.
