The fine film scholars over at Badass Digest often write about horror films. I’ve just recently discovered the site and have been picking through the archives, reading all sorts of news, reviews, and analysis of horror movies new and old (Collins’ Crypt is an ongoing feature of the website exclusively dedicated to discussing horror). While reading up on material related to The Conjuring I came across this quick tale about the real life doll portrayed in the opening moments of the film, as well as the spinoff feature Annabelle, releasing in a couple weeks. It’s a spooky old time!
Their friend Lou hated the doll. He thought there was something deeply wrong with it, something evil, but the girls were modern women and didn’t believe that sort of thing. There must be an explanation, they reasoned. But soon Annabelle’s actions got even weirder – Donna began to find pieces of parchment paper in the house with messages written on it. “Help us,” they would say, or “Help Lou.” Just to make the whole thing that much creepier nobody in the house had parchment paper. Where the hell was it coming from?
