A World War 2-era ventriloquist doll has been filmed moving its eyes and mouth in the middle of the night.
Known as 'Mr Fritz', the creepy doll was recently acquired by 48-year-old collector Michael Diamond from Liverpool who received it as a gift from a local militaria collector back in July.
Little is know about its history other than that it was made by a US prisoner of war in the 1940s.
In the footage, which was filmed in the early hours of the morning, the doll's cabinet creeks open on its own and its eyes and mouth can be seen slowly opening and closing without intervention.
Diamond maintains that the video has not been faked and says he has "no explanation."
"When I first watched the video back I had a weird feeling in my stomach," he said.
"At least once or twice a week I noticed the door kept coming off its latch. I decided to set up the camera for fun just to see if anything would happen."
"When something actually did I got a weird feeling in my gut, it's hard to describe."
He now keeps the doll hidden away under lock and key with a blanket over the top of it.
"I wouldn't say I'm scared of Mr Fritz but I am wary of it," he said.
