Did you rule out TRILOGY OF TERROR 2 also?

I've seen this but can't remember what the title is.
This is going to drive me nuts trying to remember now.

For some reason I'm getting a Tales From the Darkside vibe.
I seem to remember it being a segment on a TV show.

Is this perhaps the episode Charlie Boy from the Hammer House of Horror series?

Can you give a better idea of the period of the film? I.E. black and white, the decade, etc?

No, it is definitely not.  Charlie Boy was a completely inanimate object.

thank you for all pf the suggestions but none of them are that movie....trilogy of terror is close but almost like a remake...in the movie im thinking of this women gets the doll as a gift and she doesnt like the sash across it so she willing takes it off, but it says on the sash in a different language not to remove it or the spirit in the doll will come alive.

What are you afraid of? It's only rock n' roll.

dude, it has to be trilogy of terror. im not positive there isnt another ripoff floating around somewhere but its dead on in your description. here is some comparisons that might lead you to believe what you are thinking of, you certainly could be mistaken because they are so close in resemblance.

the doll is wearing a dress that could easily be called a sash. it has a gold chain around its waist on top of the dress/sash and THAT gets taken off letting the spirit into the doll causing it to come alive. There is a warning that comes with the doll that says if you remove the chain the doll will come to life (more or less).

she throws the doll in an oven not a dryer.

the doll doesn't necessarily say "chop,chop" but it does scream and make crazy grunting noises (which may or may not sound like chop,chop).

the doll wasn't given as a gift but PURCHASED as a gift for her boyfriend.

the doll carries a spear then upgrades to a kitchen knife.

I don't know if you are still around - the one talking about the doll movie above.  I saw this movie with I was a small boy living in Los Angeles.  I've thought about that doll since then and wondered what movie it was.  Never saw it or heard it referenced ever.  What I remember was that She had gotten the doll somewhere and brought it home.  The doll looked like a raggedy ann sort of rag doll with a very large mouth with zig zaggy triangle shaped teeth which fit together in a line, like Charlie Browns shirt, but, in a big ear to ear smile across it entire face.  It was very small, small body with a big flat head and big face and round big eyes.  She noticed a chain around it's neck that I believe had a warning not to remove it.  She did so anyway, and put the doll down.  She went into the other room.  I think it started when She looked back into the room while passing back by and the doll was gone.  I just remember bits and pieces of the scenes.  I don't know what order, but, there was a bathroom scene where she ran in and closed the door and the doll was pushing the door open - it was very strong.  All She could do to keep it closed - she ran the tub full of water, grabbed a towel and let the door go, the door flew open, the doll ran right for Her and caught the doll in the towel and shoved it into the water and drowned it, held it down until it stopped fighting and screaming.  Then She, thinking it was over, walked down the hall away from the bathroom - POV that is vivid and maybe the scariest shot in the movie for me.. the shot is low to the floor, just Her feet walking towards the camera down the long hall with the open bathroom door at the end - just as She passes, you see the dolls head look around the door and then running wildly down the hall.  Oh god, that was all I could stand back then as a kid!  I remember shreeking and huddling up on the couch.  Somehow it gets a kitchen knife and I remember Her trying to catch this thing in a suitcase same way as with the towel.  This scene may have been before the bathroom.  She catches it and it seems Shes got it, but, then it starts to cut its way out of the suitcase.. and she's so scared and helpless, She actually tries to grab the end of the knife as it pops up through the side of the suitcase.  At some point, She runs into the kitchen and turns on the oven.  She holds the kitchen door closed for as long as She can with this thing fighting to get in.. then, She lets it in, grabs it and throws it into the hot oven and holds the door shut, just barely, as the doll goes absolutely wild screaming and growling and banging violently.  Very frightening.  She's fighting to keep the oven door shut, and grows tired and is crying.  You know during the movie somehow that Her husband is supposed to be coming home anytime.. the last scene I remember is of Her in the kitchen, on Her knees, totally possessed by the demon that was in this doll, with the knife clasped in both hands repeatedly, stabbing the floor and drawing the knife back over and over again, staring at the kitchen door in a glazed demonic stare.. waiting for Her husband.. and it ends.  Great scary movie!  I was young but savy about movies.. My Father was in the business.  It had very effective editing to say the least - for a low budget short film.  I really want to see it again.  It's got to be somewhere.  Would really like to know anything about it.. if anyone has any idea.  email me. dlmcq@gmx.com  Thanks!

Joe and "Q" both have great descriptions.  I remember seeing a movie like this.  The movie was about a doll but I don't remember the demon part.  I remember a sash and the actress being chased.  I remember an oven scene.  I want say this is a Twilight Zone episode.  I will watch this thread to see if there is an outcome.

Later,

I know all about this one..I was 8 or 9 when it premeired on ABC and I didn't get to sleep that night.  Same with Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark  Another great memory for me.

And yes, the doll definitely made a significant upgrade with that buthcer knife.  Great movie!

I'm thinking it could be one of these two, "The Devil's Hand" or "Terrified." I have them both on a 12 movie DVD set, there is an opening scene in one of them that reminds me of your description.
