Annabelle, in her glass case, where she still moves and makes growling noises.

There are some downright freakishly scary things that reside in this world. Some are well-known and some are not. Whether you believe in the supernatural or you don't, many reported cases of paranormal activity still seem to intrigue and mystify. Hauntings are most usually related to places, houses, or cemeteries, and sometimes even people, but what if an object other than these is reportedly haunted? Say a supposedly simple, benign doll, for instance. Would you believe it was true?

A Possessed Doll

Annabelle was the focus of a case that got the attention of famed paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. They became interested in Annabelle in the early 1970s. This episode in their career was included in the book The Demonologist by Gerald Brittle about the Warrens.

It has been stated that this is one of the most unusual cases of a possessed object on record.

This is Annabelle's story:

In 1970, a mother, doting on her only daughter, purchased a Raggedy Ann doll from an antique store. The cute red-headed little doll was a present for her daughter Donna. Donna was, at that time, residing with her roommate Angie in a small apartment and preparing to graduate from college. Thinking nothing more of the doll than that it was a sign of her mother's affection, she placed the doll on her bed in her room and basically forgot about it.

As time passed, both Angie and Donna noticed an air of strangeness about the doll. Apparently, the doll would move. These were relatively subtle movements at first, like a change in position, but as time passed, the movements became more noticeable. The doll was even found once standing upright, leaning against a chair with its legs crossed. After a while, the doll was said to have actually changed rooms! It would be left in the living room before Donna left for work and upon returning, it would be found on her bed, in her room. A moving doll? Very strange indeed.

More Than Just Moving

About a month later, Donna began to find what she thought were penciled messages. They appeared to be written in the handwriting of a small child, scribbled and almost illegible, on parchment paper. It could be seen that the messages clearly stated "Help Us" or "Help Lou." Donna was uncertain of exactly who the "us" was. Apparently, Donna had never kept that type of paper in the house either. So where did the paper come from? Could it have been conjured by the doll itself? Could a doll possibly be writing messages? If so, how?

Who Was Annabelle, Really?

Donna came home one night to find the doll had moved once again. Only this time Donna felt as though something was off. A menacing presence seemed to emulate from the doll, and she had the deepest urge to inspect it for some reason. What she found would haunt her forever.

The doll had blood on it. Blood or what seemed to be blood. A liquid-like red substance appeared on both the back of its hands and its chest. Now completely scared and desperate for help, Donna decided it was time to seek an expert. Something was going on, and she wanted answers.

Determined to get to the bottom of things, Donna decided to contact a medium. The medium agreed, and a séance was held. Apparently, there was in fact a spirit taking up residence in the doll, and her name was Annabelle Higgins. From what the medium could determine, Annabelle Higgins was a young girl of only seven when her lifeless body was found in the field upon which the apartment complex now stands. The details of her death never came to light. The so-called spirit basically took up residence in the doll and wanted to stay. Seeing no harm in it and feeling sorry for what the spirit had experienced in life, Donna agreed. The true nature of this entity had yet to be revealed.

"Help Lou"

Lou, a friend of Donna's, was less than thrilled with the doll. On numerous occasions, Lou warned Angie that the doll felt threatening and sinister. Something was off, and Lou knew it. Lou's dislike of the doll was well-known. He would have more than one terrifying experience with Annabelle. Here is the story of Lou's experience as related by the Warrens themselves:

"Lou awoke one night from a deep sleep and in panic. Once again he had a reccuring bad dream. Only this time somehow, something seemed different. It was as though he was awake but couldn't move. He looked around the room but couldn't discern anything out of the ordinary and then it happened. Looking down toward his feet he saw the doll, Annabelle. It began to slowly glide up his leg, moved over his chest and then stopped. Within seconds the doll was strangling him. Paralyzed and gasping for breath Lou, at the point of asphyxiation, blacked out. Lou awoke the next morning, certain it wasn't a dream, Lou was determined to rid himself of that doll and the spirit that possessed it. Lou, however, would have one more terrifying experience with Annabelle. Preparing for a road trip the next day Lou and Angie were reading over maps alone in her apartment. The apartment seemed eerily quiet. Suddenly, rustling sounds coming from Donna's room aroused fear that someone had possibly broken into the apartment. Lou, determined to figure out who or what it was, quietly made his way to the bedroom door. He waited for the noises to stop before entering and turning on the light. The room was empty except for Annabelle whom was tossed on the floor in the corner.

Lou scoured the room for forced entry but nothing was out of place. But as he got close to the doll he got the distinct impression that somebody was behind him. Spinning around he was quick to realize that nobody else was there. Then in flash he found himself grabbing for his chest, doubled over, cut and bleeding. His shirt was stained with blood and upon opening his shirt there on his chest was what looked to be seven distinct claw marks, three vertical and four horizontal. All were hot like burns. These scratches healed almost immediately; half-gone the next day and fully gone by day two. ("Annabelle, The Curse Of The Devil Doll." Warrens.net, 2010)

Had the entity finally revealed it's true purpose and nature? Usually, claw marks in a paranormal situation relate to a demonic entity. Demonic entities usually lead to cases of possession. The doll may be just a temporary anchor to the physical world. Possession of a human body may be its true intent. A human possession would make it almost impossible for the demon to be extricated from our world, making the interaction between the spiritual and physical worlds much easier to manipulate.

The Investigators

Due to the nature of Lou's experiences, the doll was no longer believed to be a docile spirit, but inhuman and demonic in nature. Donna decided to contact a priest. Bringing in the big guns seemed like the best way to go. Father Hegan was the priest they contacted. With his help, their case was referred to paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.

"Ed and Lorraine Warren immediately took interest in the case and contacted Donna concerning the doll. The Warrens, after speaking with Donna, Angie, and Lou, came to the immediate conclusion that the doll itself was not in fact possessed but manipulated by an inhuman presence. Spirits do not possess inanimate objects like houses or toys, they possess people. An inhuman spirit can attach itself to a place or object and this is what occurred in the Annabelle case. This spirit manipulated the doll and created the illusion of it being alive in order to get recognition. Truly, the spirit was not looking to stay attached to the doll, it was looking to possess a human host.

The spirit, or in this case inhuman demonic spirit, was essentially in the infestation stage of the phenomenon. It first began moving the doll around the apartment by means of teleportation to arouse the occupants curiosity in hopes that they would give it recognition.Then, predictably, the a medium was brought into the apartment to communicate with it. The inhuman spirit now able to communicate through the medium and preyed on the girls' emotional vulnerabilities by pretending to be a rather harmless, lost young girl. During the seance it was allowed permission to haunt the apartment. Insofar as a demon is a negative spirit, it then set about causing patently negative phenomena to occur; it aroused fear through the doll's weird movements, brought about the materialization of disturbing handwritten notes, created symbolic drops of blood on the doll, and ultimately attacked Lou, leaving behind the symbolic mark of the beast. The next stage of the infestation phenomenon would have been complete human possession. Had these experiences lasted another two or three more weeks, the spirit would have completely possessed, if not harmed or killed, one or all of the occupants in the house." ("Annabelle, The Curse Of The Devil Doll." Warrens.net, 2010)

An actual exorcism was conducted on the doll before they left, hoping it would rid Annabelle of the infectious demon. Upon the conclusion of the investigation, Ed and Loraine decided the best course of action to prevent the spirit from doing further harm was to relieve Donna of its presence and take the doll home with them. They weren't completely sure if the doll had been exorcised of the entity.

Visiting Annabelle

I hope you enjoyed this article. Should you ever want to visit the famous Annabelle, she can be found at the Warren Occult Museum in Moodus, Connecticut. The museum is run by Lorraine Warren, the famous paranormal investigator, and now frequent guest on the television show Paranormal State. Warren relates that Annabell still moves about occasionally and is still known to make growling noises at unsuspecting visitors.

A lot of people say they hate the movies of Annabelle. But keep in mind yes the movies do over act but it's showing the dangers of every aspect of all of us paranormal invistagators with and with out kids and is showing the side of dangers of what could really happen and how seriously fast an infestation can become. and how many of us sensitives can seriously say I did it I made it in this feild sadly not many The movie is waking people up my home inhabits objects and dybbuk box's along with two 7 yr olds and a cat yes it is an big responsablity owning them but I do want to make clear my kids were raised around them at birth I mean really issues such as the Annabelle case not like one can run to DCF and say these problems acure kids would get taken away and parents be locked up in nut wards although I do agree it is an fine line topics like this it's an agree to disagree just like talking politics

Clear Man on August 22, 2019:

I had the ann and andy dolls as a kid. Within 2 weeks of them being in the house, I started having night terrors. I would also wake up to them grabbing at my feet when they were across the room on the floor earlier. I also remember on 2 occasions waking up with ann on my chest choking me while I couldn't move my legs because the andy doll was holding them down. I'm just wondering if someone didn't curse a bunch of these dolls then sold them to unknowing people. The ann doll disappeared one day. Because I was having issues with them, I think my mother must have throw it away. I've had demonic attacks later as an adult over the years. I've seen them, and have recorded them speaking to one another about me. My suggestion is they exorcise that doll, And F'en burn it! Keeping it around like some curiosity is just asking for big trouble.

My mothers friend used to have a room full of these dolls, and whenever i seen the door of the room opened, I'd leave immediately being given the creeps.

cryz on July 28, 2019:

well I actually saw the same doll 2years ago in the house then disappeared again never ever to be seen ever again.

cryz on July 26, 2019:

my big sister used to have a raggedy ann doll and the doll disappeared one day and was never found ever again.

Jo Baker on July 22, 2019:

I have loved raggedyann dolls since I was a child and I have gifted all my collection to my only granddaugter of 8 years old... thanks to your stupid movie she tossed all the dolls in the trash cause she became terrified of them, unfortunately my son did not even know that she had put them all in the trash...mind you, I was 11 when I started my collection of authentic Raggedayann dolls...I am 53 now, so you understand the "priceless" collection and worth of this collection!!! I hate your stupid movie!!!!!

Nathan on July 07, 2019:

Emily Jones on July 05, 2019:

I think it looks good but I really want to go see the movie

Marta on June 28, 2019:

I think Lorraine Warren has been an amazing souls that has aided so many through the years both alive and dead. I will say that I read a comment below that made me want to clear something up: like me, a person can be believe in Jesus, Mary and so on (I am a spiritual person more than I would say religious) and still believe in the supernatural. The supernatural is very real and like most things a lot of energy is based on the persons intentions. I have always been drawn to the supernatural but would NEVER be dumb enough to use a Ouija board for example (most people don’t know all the rules and even when followed correctly you can still attract negative/ evil entities). But I know see that my attraction and reading/ watching of the supernatural and the occult was more research. It’s always good to be prepared I believe. In the end I will say there are things in this world that we will never know or understand, that maybe only God knows so that one day when we are gone from this dimension we will say “oh I get it now!”

MrTKennedy1981 on February 15, 2019:

What I cannot understand for the life of me is why nobody didn't take that ugly sack of thread and stuffing and tear her to shreads, light her on fire, and piss on the ashes and bury her and seal the grave. IT IS A STUPID DOLL! I'VE BURNED OUIJA BOARDS YEARS AGO AND NOTHING BAD HAS HAPPENED AT ALL BECAUSE OF IT.

Peggy on November 21, 2018:

my brother hates dolls I actually have a few of my own. but I do have one that's haunted. I love it and she helps me sometimes but my brother gets mad out of no were when he said its me when I never did anything. I love that doll with all my heart and never will give it away. btw the dolls name is Elizabeth. she moves a lot on her own but for some reason I never get scared. its like its normal for me and my family. My family never get scared but my brother is still terrified of it. he always tells me to throw it away or burn it and when he does I let out a deep comment that scars him. that's my story hope u enjoyed and I still have the doll now at my house.

Ava Valdovinos on October 28, 2018:

Were is the doll now?

maddy on October 14, 2018:

this is very creep and spooky

Sky on October 11, 2018:

To those who have read this but don't believe, visit the museum and speak with Loraine. The doll does not move from the case because it is blessed twice a month. However, it is very much still possessed by the demon that took over it 40 or so years ago. The doll is a vessel as in many cases a non human soul wishes to get closer to a real human soul thus they lure and manipulate living souls into letting them get closer through vessels. This spirit was not a human trapped in a doll but a demon, wishing to posses a human body.

Im so fritend

This is amazing to learn about and really interesting I really want to know about this stuff

Penny Wiser from Washington on May 24, 2018:

You might find this interview with the Conjuring ghost hunters interesting. They covered the Annabelle doll and several other phenomena.

I MEAN THIS S**T IS ALL SCARY BUT IT IS REALLY INTERESTING TO LEARN AND TO BE INFORMED ABOUT

Roxanne on March 03, 2018:

I believe in the super natural an this is one of them

Roseline on December 17, 2017:

My mom made one. Does that make the doll evil?

Jrn on October 29, 2017:

Stay away from the Ouiji board and the paranormal. There is a lure and definitely a power but it is a door that you don't want to open. I did and had way too many experiences before accepting Jesus Christ as my savior.

Idc about my name BOIII on October 28, 2017:

This people... THIS is why I HATE dolls dude

Adria Frnq on October 04, 2017:

Indeed Annabel I very real so is Robert the Doll as well we all must respect them to be respected.. Now dolls that are sold on Ebay most are not really haunted they just want to make that money by selling fakes.. Not saying that some are truly Genuine but always be careful when buying on ebay.

Always Check feedbacks and name changes.. if they have name changes and bad feedbacks be careful they might not be legit on selling haunted Dolls etc.

Carlos on August 18, 2017:

FirehouseinChicago on June 09, 2017:

I've seen a raggedy Ann in my basement bedroom,and I don't even have one.

Gracon on April 23, 2017:

Ive heard they moved AnnaBelle, Let's just hope she isn't coming back for round two.

Dianna on June 06, 2016:

Actually.....ghosts , especially children, are drawn to the "lifelike" appearance of the dolls, hands, feet, head, a hollow person ready to accept a soul. Once a ghost possesses a doll, it cannot get back out. Like, imagine a soul trap? Ok, so you have this entity, it went into a doll to possibly communicate or, my best guess, just be able to touch something, and get trapped, once they discover they are trapped....well...what would you do if YOU were trapped in a small room that you could barely move in? Ok, step farther, you're telling people you are there and they aren't letting you go? What do you do? You get violent. Look it up, its where people started using nesting dolls. At night a family would do their prayers in "the family room" near the hearth, they would place a doll there to trap any evil spirit ( everything unknown back then was EVIL, look at witches.) however, the doll had to be replaced if its "feel" went off. They ended up with so many dolls they couldn't store them, can't burn em, the spirit would get out, can't just throw them away what if someone accidently found it and let it go, man would it be ticked at the ones who threw it away! So, the nesting doll was created. Each larger layer going over the top of the last, effectively creating a true soul trap. One spirit is drawn to the other and so on. There, now you understand. Respectfully, she who has died twice. Me.

Kylie Kennimer on July 30, 2015:

I don't believe in this story cause if she's haunted couldn't she get out of the case?

Darkest Dreams from East Coast, USA on April 20, 2015:

It is good to read about the real Annabelle, not just the one from the movie. I think the real Annabelle looks way scarier.

Team Wiseman on January 19, 2015:

We saw a show about this doll, crazy stuff. You did well at presenting this article. Excellent writer! We write about this type of stuff a lot, Check us out sometime. Thumbs up, Interesting, and following. Sharing as well.

Glory Miller from USA on January 11, 2015:

Doesn't a relative of the Warren's, John Zaffis, take items that are haunted and store them in his own museum? He did have a show on SYFY, called "Paranormal Collector" (I don't think they air it anymore). I believe in one episode of the show, he gave an explanation of how he is able to house these kinds of items so that their energy isn't able to pass through their glass display cases and wreck havoc in their new surroundings. Maybe the Warren's did the same thing or maybe that is where Zaffis learned the technique that he uses?

Elizabeth Harp from Arkansas, USA on December 29, 2014:

As much as I love reading tales like these, I can't help but be creeped out by the fact that Annabelle was a Raggedy Anne doll; I used to carry my Raggedy Anne everywhere as a kid until she really lived up to her name.

Georgina Crawford from Dartmoor on December 24, 2014:

I really don't like dolls. Never have. Really enjoyed your creepy article. Reminds me too much of the Chucky films!

shannon on October 18, 2014:

Very interesting i use to own a raggedy ann doll and andy doll too. I dont have them anymore. I just recently took out my old raggedy ann and andy pillow case and bed sheets that I found in my basement, was going to give them to my daughter ariel but decided not to after watching Annabella. Kind of freaked me out I must say!

Debbie on September 25, 2014:

Total bullshit

T-fame on September 22, 2014:

That stuff is very scary

StopStart on September 11, 2014:

Anything on paper and on video or somethibg someone said,is always going to be questionable. It is becoming harder to believe in what is real and what is made up. Its too bad that its like this but sites like YouTube and others,harbor ghost hunters and paranoid people. I was a believer once until i kept seeing all the bs associated with photo editing and video editing. You just cant believe any of it anymore. Its just nonsense.

dev on April 24, 2014:

these stories make me scared nd shiver.

monie on April 08, 2014:

cool i love reading about hunting dolls like robert the doll

kelly on March 28, 2014:

nice done4!

Sunny on March 05, 2014:

Well, there are many details in this story and that really helpful to me.

I have seen this movie a few months ago, and I love the Warrens a lot.

But I got a bad dream about this doll yesterday, so I search for it, and I found your article. I dreamed that the doll shown up in a scary way, upside down from the ceiling in my dream. At first, I was curious about what was that, so I went for a check, it seemed like it was scaring another girl in the moment, but suddenly it turned to me, and that scared me. It asked me to give one of my dolls to it, my lovely huge rose-bear, and I refuse immediately. It talked to me in mind, not from any voice. And because the dream was so real, that I can't help but thinking about it. In the end of the dream, I was grabbed by a hand, and I screamed. I noticed that it was only a dream, but I couldn't wake up, I even couldn't move my hands or legs. That scared me a lot. So I think, is it possible that the guard of the doll is weaker and weaker, so it wanna change its vessel.

Thank you.

jainaba on February 24, 2014:

huh, my little sis has a doll exactly like this ... uh-oh ( runs to the house)

TripHawkins on January 23, 2014:

How do these paranormal "experts" know that a "spirit" can't possess an object?

Harleigh on December 28, 2013:

Well, I wasn't planning on sleeping anyway.

Annabelle on December 20, 2013:

Im kinda scared of myself becaudse my name is Annabelle :D

Elizabeth (author) from Some Sunny Beach, USA on November 01, 2013:

Hi Jackie! It was actually mentioned in The Conjuring but I agree, it deserves a movie all to itself!!!

@jackie_be_lucky on November 01, 2013:

wow they should make a movie about the doll!!!!(:

Paige from New Orleans, LA on September 12, 2013:

Wow. I've always had doll/clown issues. The scene in Poltergeist where the clown chokes the brother freaks me out to this day. Annabelle is just one more reason to keep those little freaks out of the house! lol

Great page, voted up and interesting!

Morgan Kisiel on August 12, 2013:

i have a doll, that moves, just like annabelle does. everything that i read about her is just like what rosa, my doll, does. i locked her in a trunk that i have in my room, because i was scared to leave her out at night, and the next morning, i found her sitting on top of the trunk staring at me, with the lock in her hand. I knew that noone had done it cause i live alone.

Elizabeth Parker from Las Vegas, NV on August 10, 2013:

Finally saw the movie and it lived up to its great reviews. I actually was scared...and I haven't been scared by a horror movie in a very long time!

becca on August 10, 2013:

the doll is in a glass case, the doll could still harm people. plesae think about it.

KenWu from Malaysia on August 01, 2013:

Just learned about this Annabelle doll from the movie 'Conjuring' which also based on true story. I never like such dolls or any doll to be around me, they make me fell eerie.

Elizabeth (author) from Some Sunny Beach, USA on July 22, 2013:

Thank you everyone for reading and insightful comments. I'm glad you enjoyed this info! I also would like to see The Conjuring, jenslibra how was it??? Also, if you like Annabelle check out my hub on Robert the haunted doll! I was actually able to see him in person when I was down in Key West. The pictures were taken when I was there :)

Toy Tasting from Mumbai on July 21, 2013:

Thanks for sharing the information :)

tvs290 from India,bangalore on July 21, 2013:

A true story, which I believe. These kind of thinks really happen but we should fear them because our fear is their strength.

Jessica Peri from United States on July 20, 2013:

I remember hearing about this doll, but it was great to read the whole story behind it. You won't catch me buying especially old or antique items at yard sales anytime soon! Voted up.

Thank for your wonderful story

Very spooky! I enjoyed this thoroughly! Voted up.

jenslibra- I want to see that movie. How was it?

Jennifer Vasquez from Long Beach, CA on July 20, 2013:

Enjoyed the article! I just saw The Conjuring, based on Ed & Lorraine Warren, and the film briefly depicts the Annabelle. Your background info is very interesting.

Mel Carriere from San Diego California on July 19, 2013:

You've given me interesting things to think about right before bedtime. I am surprised this has never been made into a Hollywood movie. As far as evil dolls are concerned we of course had Chuckie, but this seems much more eerie than that because it has a ring of truth to it. Great hub!

Aimster on July 11, 2013:

Agreed Rachelle Horton--how does that flimsy glass case hold it when doors, walls, locks, etc couldnt??

Jainaba Drammeh on October 06, 2012:

I have this doll to but i just found out this doll is haunted

whenn i tried to find it and get rid of it i couldn't find it

:(

Rachelle Horton on September 07, 2012:

The story is just a teeny bit confusing. The doll now sits encased to keep it from harming people yet it was able to freely go from room to room even though the doors were locked?

NYJ on August 29, 2012:

You people have got to be kidding me...I'm stupefied

annonomus on August 21, 2012:

Bradynn Jones on July 31, 2012:

This is totally real and it scared me when I saw it on mysteries at the museum

Elizabeth (author) from Some Sunny Beach, USA on July 25, 2012:

I have yet to experience living in a haunted house but I can imgaine how scary it could get! A possessed Kiss figure would be cool....it would just lick you to death! lol Thanks for reading and commenting daskittlez69 :)

This is the 1st time I read about "Annabelle". Makes you think twice about buying gifts for your children. I grew up in a haunted house and hated almost every minute of it. I remember my brother giving me one of his Kiss figures, and he told me it had the power to protect me. I would prefer that to having it be the one that was possessed. Thanks for the hub.

I haven't really read into the Annabelle doll story until now. I remember my sister and I had two large dolls that looked kinda like Annabelle that hung on the wall in our bedroom. Creepy when I think about it!

LOL I agree! Dolls are super creepy. I never had one, not even Barbies! Thanks!

Nice work on this hub! My solution for this doll: Ammo, and lots of it. Or my friends solution: Large tub of cement and dump into large body of water. Voted up! P.S. I hate dolls.

holy crap i live 2 towns away from that thing

What they should have done was remove the spirit from the doll and banish it then cleanse it. I disagree with the notion that inanimate beings (not 'objects') can not be possessed. All things have a soul and are sentient not just humans or animals. Leaving that poor creature possessed is no less cruel than leaving a human or an animal possessed.
