That isn't what voodoo dolls or poppets do, this isn't a movie.
Dolls (whether made by a voodoo practitioner or otherwise) are designed to be representation of a person, they are often used to heal or promote changes within the person as changes are done to the doll. For instance healing herbs are added into the doll where someone needs healing and through energy and the connection of the doll to the person it is believed that the person the doll is meant to represent may feel the healing effects of the herbs as well. They are used more to begin change, than they are to control.
