There wasn't anything creepy about the former toy factories that had no rotting toys laying around, or the ones where they just show a shot of a decrepit building and mention that at one time it made toys.


If you are going to invoke "pleasant dreams" at least provide some nightmare fuel.

As a small scale Halloween haunter, I now have the strongest urge to go looting.  This "Toy Loft" is located where exactly...?

Someone in the comments said Fall River (which made me think it was close enough to take my own photo excursion 'cuz it looks cool) but google seems to think Killingly, CT. Which is still do-able but farther than I'm really willing to drive my falling apart car these days.

I mean, what are they gonna say about him, when he's gone, huh? What are they gonna say? Are they gonna say "he was a kind man"? "He was a wise man"? "He had plans"; "He had wisdom"? Bullshiat, man! What are they gonna do when he's gone? What are they gonna turn to me? I mean come on, look at me! Am I gonna set them straight...

I'm a little man, I'm a little man, he's, he's a great man. I should have been a pair of ragged claws scuttling across floors of silent seas

Haven't seen it, but looks twisted enough. And kudos on knowing about Quay Bros! It's a rarity to bump into anyone who's seen their films.

Currently reacting like John Belushi here.

I farking know this place, I know where it's at, I can give directions, I know who owned it last and how much of a douche they were. I farking live nearby it, like less than half a mile away nearby.

Never expected this place to linked anywhere close to Fark without at least a a couple of murder suicides, or cult meeting, or some bull shiat creepypasta like that.

Kmart trifecta in play? I mean, abandoned toy stores/Kmarts closing left and right, I say it works.

lighting was all wrong to relay a sense of "creepy"
