Real Horror Story Behind Chucky, the Notorious Killer Doll Day
Chucky is based on a doll named Robert owned by a Robert Eugene Otto, a painter in Florida. Eugene was given Robert as a gift in 1906 by a servant in the family. This woman was long abused and thus performed the art of voodoo to seek revenge. She had handed over the same doll.
The original doll Robert had a American naval officer costume and holds a small animal in his hand. Eugene was so attracted by the doll, he gave him his own name. He would carry it everywhere and the family found it rather sweet. Soon strange things started happening in the house, and Eugene blamed it on Robert. The furniture was knocked, the toys were ripped and Eugene would be terrified. Unfamiliar and strange sounds were heard from the house, like someone is walking or running at home.

One day Robert's aunt suggested that doll should be locked up in the attic and the same night she died! The family then got back the doll in Eugene's room. Eventually, the house was inherited by different owners by Robert's terrifying behaviour continued. He mutilated toys in the bedroom and even tried to attack one of the family members.
