Annabelle Comes Home was recently released and you should go watch the movie immediately if you haven’t yet!
The gist of all three films revolves around the same doll, Annabelle. Of course, more dramatization went into the making of ‘Annabelle Comes Home’ but it essentially revolved around the same character.
Whether or not you believe in paranormal activity, the following story is definitely going to scare you.
A Demon & A Doll
Donna a student nurse was gifted a Raggedy Ann doll by her mother in 1970. Soon after, the doll started exhibiting strange behavior. This was not only observed by Donna but also her roommate Angie.
It was later revealed that it was due to the spirit of a 7-year-old girl, Annabelle Higgins who had died in the same apartment complex. It was assumed that her spirit wanted to possess the doll – which was allowed by both, Donna and her roommate on the pretext of the girl being just 7 years of age. What harm could she possibility bring…
When Annabelle attacked their friend Lou, they contacted the Warren’s (American paranormal investigators) for support. Now hold your horses for this bit… it was revealed that the spirit was of a demon who wanted to possess Donna and not the doll.
Soon after, a priest was summoned but that did not work out and Ed Warren had to drive the doll to his house. Some sources say that the doll messed up with the brakes (and more) and to survive Ed had to throw Holy Water on it. The supernatural activity continued for a while which caused Annabelle to be shifted to the Warrens’ Occult Museum where it’s kept in a wooden box.
Annabelle Comes Home – literally
It was reported that a visitor ignored the warnings and banged on the doll’s box – he died in a motorcycle crash. At another instance, a priest from Hartford threw the doll across the room, claiming that there was no bigger entity than God. He reportedly died in a crash with a tractor trailer.
Ed and Lorren’s daughter claimed that she was never allowed to look the doll in the eyes. Even today, the area where Annabelle is placed, goes through regular rituals by actual priests for protection.
Even though, Annabelle Comes Home has been out for a month with average ratings, a horror movie junkie will probably give it second chance.
