Annabelle the Doll
Bought in an antique shop in 1970, a woman gave this raggedy doll to her daughter, Donna, who was in nursing school. At first, the doll seemed like any other doll. However, things started to get creepy when Donna and roommate Angie kept coming home to find the doll in different positions and different locations. In a startling turn of events, the doll began leaving them notes saying “HELP US” and as if that’s not bad enough, they also found the doll with blood on it. For obvious reasons, Lou (a guy friend of Donna and Angie) tried to get the girls to get rid of the doll. This however displeased the doll who then tried to strangle Lou via a nightmare/physical encounter. The girls eventually called Ed and Lorraine Warren, the folks who investigated the Amityville house — who decided the doll was actually a conduit to hell and was being used by a demon. After two failed exorcism attempts, the doll was encased in a specially made glass case in the Warrens’ occult museum, where it supposedly still moves.
