Return of the Hat

For years this flat-cap has enjoyed its position atop the mannequin, in perfect view of the old television in the charity shop. Every night it watches and re-watches its favourite old VHS films with its long time companion, the silk scarf. When the flat-cap or scarf are bought by someone, they must kill them to eventually be returned to the shop again, as a donation. What better way to kill people then to emulate their favourite characters in the films they watch. Once they have returned to the mannequin, the suspicious shop assistant endangers their cinematic experience by threatening to move the mannequin to face the elderly ladies wear section. They cannot let this happen.
