Heard of The Conjuring? I’m sure most of you did, & even watched the movie *shivers* The Conjuring is based on a real story, and one of the scariest thing is the ANNABELLE doll (the doll sitting on the chair in the poster).
Sadly, James Wan only focused a few minutes of the movie on ANNABELLE the doll. Here in my blogpost, I will tell the whole REAL story of the ANNABELLE doll. Ready for a late night true story? Scroll down & enjoy
First, let me show you the real pictures of the ANNABELLE doll.
#This is the movie version#
As you can see, the real-life ANNABELLE doll is not scary (actually very cute)! It is a no wonder, that the owners are not afraid of it when it first got possessed & moved on its own. Here’s the full story (yes, be prepared for another wordy blog-post)!
Around the year 197o, a mother bought a 2nd-hand doll as a birthday present for her daughter (DONNA). DONNA brings the doll to live in an apartment with her roommate (ANGIE). DONNA sleeps with the doll on her bed.
Few days, later…. The doll started to move.
DONNA placed it on her bed everyday. But sometimes when they came home, the doll will be in another bedroom. Sometimes, the doll will sit on the couch with arms folded like a human. Sometimes, the doll will be found on a chair in the dining room. DONNA tried to put the doll in the living room, but afterwards the doll will be on her bed.
A month later… (ps: I don’t know how can anyone live with a moving doll for a month, omg)
After a month, the doll began to write messages with paper & pencils. Every night when they came home, the doll will leave messages writing ,”HELP US.” Sometimes it writes “HELP LOU.” (Lou is Donna & Angie’s good friend). Scariest of all, there’s NO PENCILS & PAPER in the apartment. Where did ANNABELLE doll get the pencil & papers from?
DONNA & ANGIE must be the bravest girls in the world! Because even these happened, they didn’t throw the doll. They still keep it (why, why ,why?)
Then one night, DONNA found the doll on her bed again. She thought it was normal & didn’t care… until she saw BLOOD on the doll.
Finally scared, DONNA & ANGIE decided to ask help from a Medium (someone who can talk to ghosts).
The ANNABELLE doll told the Medium, that she’s a lonely little girl who wants to stay with DONNA & ANGIE because they are nice. ANNABELLE says she wants to be loved & accompanied by DONNA & ANGIE. Being kind-hearted, DONNA & ANGIE agreed to let ANNABELLE stay together with them.
Remember when ANNABELLE wrote the notes? One of the notes said, “HELP LOU.”
Lou is a good friend, and he also dislikes the doll very much. LOU always asked DONNA to throw the doll away, but DONNA pitied the little girl’s spirit in the doll, and she became to love the doll. So, she kept it, although LOU keeps complaining about the doll’s freakiness.
LOU began to have bad dreams. He dreamt that one night, he cannot move on his bed. Then, ANNABELLE slowly glides up his legs to his body, then STRANGLES him. LOU cannot breathe & passed out. The next day, he woke up feeling fearful.
Another scary thing happened to LOU.
One day when LOU was planning with ANGIE about a road trip, suddenly they heard loud noises from DONNA’s room. They’re afraid it’s the burglars, so LOU went to check the room. No one’s in the room… except for ANNABELLE. Suddenly, LOU felt painful scratches & burning pain on his chest! There were 7 scars.
Finally, DONNA believed LOU and seek help from Ed & Lorraine Warren (the main characters in the movie, they are real too!).
#The real Ed & Lorraine Warren#
It was revealed that the doll is not a little girl; it’s a demon trying to get DONNA’s soul. It was luck that DONNA agreed to seek help from the Warrens, because if this goes on for another 2-3 weeks, the demon will successfully possess DONNA and eventually everyone in the apartment will be harmed or murdered.
The Warrens took the doll away from DONNA. On the way back, the doll tried to fight the Warrens.
The car brakes failed & the Warrens almost got into accident. Surely, the Warrens sprinkled holy water on the doll & they managed to drive home safely. The Warrens also experienced weird things such as the doll moving itself. So, they locked it in a glass case (just like the movie).
#Bringing ANNABELLE home, real picture#
The doll is still locked up in the same glass case until TODAY. Will you pay a visit, if there’s a chance?
Strange things also happen when ANNABELLE is locked up. Here’s 2 real cases of people who insulted the doll….
Father Bradford is a catholic exorcist who went to visit the Warrens. When he saw ANNABELLE, he said, “You’re just a ragdoll Annabelle, you can’t hurt anyone!” Later, on the way home, Father Bradford’s car brakes suddenly fail. He almost died in a fatal accident.
Another case, is a young & defiant motorcyclist. He passed by the Warren’s Occult Museum (the place where ANNABELLE is locked up). Feeling brave, he went inside to see ANNABELLE. When he saw that’s it’s a cute doll, he don’t believe the stories. He asked the doll to come out & hurt him if it’s true. The young man also banged on the glass case rudely, challenging the doll. THREE hours later, the man died – his motorcycle crashed into a tree.
