How Does the Annabelle Movie Relate to the Conjuring?
The Annabelle film is a prequel/sequel to The Conjuring. It stars Kristen Stewart. Human characters from The Conjuring are only seen briefly in the opening scene. There’s more of a focus on Ed and Lorraine Warren’s (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) relationship with the doll from the previous film, The Conjuring. A demon’s attachment to the doll is fictionalised in the story. While the 2017 prequel Annabelle: Creation explains how the doll came to be named after a deceased young girl called Annabelle, this is also revealed in the original film. The real Annabelle doll can be seen in Lorraine Warren’s hands below.
Did a husband give the Annabelle doll to his pregnant wife as a present
A pregnant Mia (Annabelle Wallis) receives the doll as a gift from her husband, John Form (Eric Laden). During our investigation into Annabelle’s true story, we discovered that John and Mia Form are not real people. Donna, a 28-year-old nursing student, received the real Annabelle doll as a birthday gift from her mother.
Raggedy Ann Doll was purchased by Donna’s mother in 1970 from a hobby store The Raggedy Ann Doll in the calico dress does not predate the 1970s, so the doll was likely purchased brand new. Preceding Donna’s mother purchasing the antique doll from a hobby store, most of the Annabelle movie tells a fictional account of how and why the demon may have entered and remained with the doll. Donna, her roommate Angie, and Angie’s fiance Lou are shown at the beginning of the film discussing their experiences with the doll with demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren.
Were the previous owners of the doll attacked by members of a satanic cult?
As we investigated the Annabelle true story, we discovered that the doll’s former owners, nursing students Donna and Angie, had never been attacked by members of a satanic cult who intruded into their home and subsequently passed a malevolent entity into the doll.
This part of the movie is pure fiction, which takes place in 1969, the year before Donna comes into possession of the doll (which was likely purchased new) (which was likely purchased new). It was created to provide a fictionalised explanation as to how the demonic spirit became attached to the doll. In real life, the spirit pretends to be that of an innocent young girl named Annabelle, who supposedly died when she was still a child. This correlates more with what happens in the prequel Annabelle: Creation.
Did the owners try to unsuccessfully throw away the doll?
When Mia unpacks one of the moving boxes, she discovers a doll that her husband had disposed of in the trash before they moved. The real-life story of the Annabelle doll indicates that the owners never attempted to dispose of the doll. No satanic intruder had ever broken into their home and possessed the doll, nor had the doll’s paranormal activity gotten so bad that they considered throwing it away before passing it to Ed and Lorraine Warren for investigation.
Did they find the real Annabelle doll in different positions and rooms
Donna, a nursing student who shared a tiny apartment with Angie, a fellow nurse, would return home to find the doll had shifted positions, according to the Warrens’ story. A few days later, the doll’s movements became more pronounced, but they remained restricted to the spot Donna had left it.
Over time, however, the movements became more apparent. After a while, Donna and Angie started finding the doll in places it wasn’t supposed to be. Even if Donna’s door was closed, it would return to her room. They discovered the doll in a variety of positions, including sitting cross-legged on a dining room chair with its arms folded. When they tried to make the doll kneel on its own, it would fall over. They even discovered it kneeling on a chair. It was unable to stoop to its knees.
How long had the paranormal activity surrounding the Annabelle doll been going on
Before paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren got involved and ended up owning the real Annabelle doll, strange things were happening to it for about a year, according to the book “The Demonologist.” Both The Conjuring and Annabelle begin with Ed and Lorraine meeting the doll’s owner, her roommate, and her roommate’s fiancé.
Did blood appear on the Annabelle doll?
According to the Warrens, the answer is yes. It’s claimed that the doll’s original owner, a nursing student, returned home from work to find the doll’s hand and chest covered in what appeared to be blood. The red substance’s whereabouts remained a mystery. Donna, the doll’s owner, sought help from a medium after this incident. Blood from a dying cult member drips into the eye socket of the Annabelle doll in an unrelated incident in the film (pictured earlier).
Did the owner of the doll ever contact a medium and have a séance?
Yes. A medium was contacted by Donna after she noticed that three drops of blood had appeared on the doll’s chest and that more blood had appeared on the back of the doll’s hand. This is the true story of the Annabelle doll, as told by Ed and Lorraine Warren. After 4-6 weeks, the medium was brought on board to help with the investigation.
During a séance, the medium brought Annabelle, a seven-year-old girl who had once played in the fields adjacent to Donna and Angie’s complex, to the attention of the two women. Annabelle’s lifeless body had been found in the fields, it was reported. Donna and Angie allowed the spirit they believed to be that of Annabelle to remain with them and take control of the doll out of compassion.
According to Ed Warren’s 1980s video tour of his Occult Museum, the above version of the story differs from the one he tells in the book The Demonologist and on the website of paranormal researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren. As Ed explains, the medium told Donna that Annabelle had died outside Donna and Angie’s apartment in a car accident, according to the video. Instead of seven, Ed claims, Annabelle was six years old. In addition, he claims in the video that Donna’s mother gave her the Raggedy Ann Doll for Christmas, not her birthday, as stated in The Demonologist book. Are there enough inconsistencies in the Warrens’ story to cast doubt on its veracity?
Did the demon attach to the Annabelle doll start a kitchen fire?
No. There is no evidence that the possessed doll was ever responsible for starting a kitchen fire, according to the Annabelle movie true story. All of the events leading to the fire are made up entirely. Because the demon failed to turn on the stove, a bag of stovetop popcorn overcooked and caught fire.
When it comes to using a sewing machine, the doll’s owner has never had a problem with her finger. In addition, the demon never dragged the owner back toward the fire across the floor.
Has the real Annabelle doll inflicted physical harm on anyone?
I think so, but not to the extent depicted in the movie. As soon as Donna’s roommate Angie’s fiancé Lou arrived, he moved into their apartment with them and had been there ever since. Donna was warned by Lou that the doll was evil. You woke up in the middle of the night to find that he was unable to move. Watching as the Annabelle doll slowly slid up his leg and over his chest, he realised she was there. He was about to go into unconsciousness when the doll started strangling him. He was certain when he awoke the following morning that what had happened was real.
Lou and Angie had been studying maps to get ready for a trip Lou was taking the following day when they heard rustling noises coming from Donna’s room. They quickly went to investigate. You waited for the noises to die down before entering the door. Upon turning on the light, he discovered Annabelle slumped over in a corner of the room. As he approached the doll, he became aware that someone was watching him. Despite his best efforts, no one was in sight. In a split second, he was sprawled on the ground, his bleeding chest in his arms. He discovered seven claw-like scratches on his chest (four horizontal and three vertical) that were hot like burns when he examined them further. Within two days, the scratches had completely disappeared.
Have there been any deaths associated with the real Annabelle doll?
At least one death has been attributed to the doll, according to Ed Warren, a paranormal investigator. At the Occult Museum in Monroe, Connecticut, Ed Warren pointed out the Raggedy Ann doll in its case during a video tour “Many of the items in this room have had tragic consequences for the people who have handled them. People have been mutilated and murdered. Things in this building have led to people ending up in mental institutions, and they’re all right here. A young man was killed by the Raggedy Ann Doll after he challenged it to do its worst and it did. voodoo dolls and Raggedy Ann dolls are among the items on display.”
The young man and his girlfriend had ridden their motorcycles to The Occult Museum for a tour of the facility. Amid Ed Warren’s tour, a young man began to mock the doll and ran up and began tapping on the glass of the case that which the doll is housed. A man named Lou, who was a friend of the doll’s former owner, Donna, had claimed that the doll had scratched him in the past. He challenged the doll to do the same to him. The young man was expelled from the museum by Ed. Later that day, about three hours after his death, the young man was killed in the accident. For more than a year, his girlfriend was in the hospital. Visit the Warrens Occult Museum
Was the spirit of a dead seven-year-old girl named Annabelle linked to the doll?
With Angie, the doll’s owner, a medium held a séance with the doll present, according to the Warrens. “They had been told by the medium that there was a seven-year-old spirit in the doll by the name of Annabelle, who had been killed in an automobile accident outside of their apartment house,” says Ed Warren. Although there was one such child, God forbids a child’s spirit from entering into a doll. Inside the doll was a devil or a demon acting in the role of a child’s spirit, but it wasn’t real ” (Seekers of the Supernatural).
A seven-year-old girl named Annabelle Higgins appears to be haunting the doll’s owner in the film, but the doll’s owner never sees what appears to be Annabelle’s ghost. Prequels reveal that Annabelle Higgins is the fictional orphan, Janice, who was possessed by the demon attached to the doll in 2017. A young Janice was kidnapped and given up for adoption by the Higgins family, who renamed her Annabelle in honour of their deceased neighbour’s daughter, who had been named Annabelle after the doll maker’s daughter.
How did paranormal researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren end up in possession of the Annabelle doll?
When Donna’s roommate’s fiance Lou was physically harmed by the demon attached to the doll, it was then that Donna, the doll’s owner, realised that the spirit might not be all that innocent. Ed and Lorraine Warren were immediately contacted after Donna contacted Father Hegan, an Episcopalian priest who contacted his superior, Father Cooke. After convincing Father Cooke to perform an exorcism on the apartment, the Warrens took it upon themselves to purge the house of its demons. He also wished everyone in attendance well. The Warrens left with the Raggedy Ann Doll at Donna’s request. Since then, they’ve had it in their possession.
Are there any other cases of haunted dolls?
Yes. Child’s Play character Chucky was based on Key West, Florida’s Robert the Doll, which is said to be haunted by the same demons as Robert the Doll (pictured below). In 1906, a Bahamian servant who worked for the Otto family gave the doll to Key West painter and author Robert Eugene Otto. According to reports, the servant was an expert in the dark arts of voodoo and black magic and had a grudge against the family.
Young Eugene was smitten with his ragdoll, which he dubbed Robert after his father Robert. When Eugene was playing with the doll, his parents could often hear him talking to it. Initially, they thought Eugene was impersonating the doll by changing his voice, but as time went on, they began to suspect the doll was speaking. Passers-by have reported seeing the doll move from one window to another over several years. Robert the Doll was seen running from room to room by members of the family, and others claim they heard it giggle horrifyingly. At night, when Eugene’s parents heard strange noises coming from his room, they’d rush in to find him screaming, “Robert did it!”
During a trip to Key West in 2011, I was able to see Robert the Doll up close and personal (pictured at right). Fort East Martello Museum has a glass case in which he is kept. The wall next to Robert is adorned with hundreds of fan-written letters, and before taking a picture, you must ask Robert’s permission.
