'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' Almost Starred This Animatronic Baby, Which Is What Nightmares Fear

First things first: I'm sorry for all the nightmares you're going to have after seeing this. Truly, I apologize, but I have to be honest — after I saw this... this thing called Chuckesmee, I was instantly scarred, and I just couldn't be alone with this pain. I had to share it. Apparently on the Twilight Forever Blu-Ray set, there's a featurette where the cast and crew explains that instead of a real child actor, an animatronic baby was almost used for Renesmee in Twlight: Breaking Dawn. Doesn't sound so bad, until you look up there and...

OHGODWHATISTHATTHING NO NO NO.

To make matters even worse, here's what director Bill Condon said to EW about that thing:

Chuckesmee was a giant misfire on all fronts. Truly, it was one of the most grotesque things I’ve ever seen. It was a horror show! There was one shot where I call, ‘Cut!’ and suddenly she turns her head and mechanically stares right into the camera. It was incredibly disturbing.

Oh God, IT HAS A MIND OF IT'S OWN. WHAT HATH SCIENCE WROUGHT?

Honestly, I'm not sure what they were thinking with this doll. Maybe in theory it was a good idea — preferable to dealing with a real baby on set, that's for sure. But are we really to believe that no one, not even Nikki Reed, took one look at that thing, screamed, and held up a crucifix in front of its creepy face? C'mon, now. It was even named after Chucky! This is how horror movies begin.
