In what could be a plot straight out of a horror film, a series of porcelain dolls have been anonymously left outside homes in California.

What’s more the dolls (eight in total) are said to look like the little girls which live in the properties in the gated community in San Clemente.

Lt Jeff Hallock of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department told KTLA: “It’s peculiar, strange and weird and all that stuff.

“People are saying the dolls slightly resemble their daughters, which is creepy.”

LAist reports most of the girls 'targeted' are around 10-years-old and some attend the same school.
