How's this for creepy-but-you-have-to-look?

The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death showcases models that are a wonderful mix of old fashion cute dollhouse type models, and gory, often murderous deaths.  There are eighteen models in all, created by Frances Glessner Lee, a millionaire heiress with an interest in forensic science.  They depict actual unsolved crimes and were used to train students of crime. (Lee used her inheritance to establish Harvard's Department of Legal Medicine).

There is also a film in production, Of Dolls and Murder, made by Susan Marks.
