Let’s Talk Horror Movies…Annabelle: Creation

So, I took myself to see a movie this week... Annabelle: Creation. Yes, I took myself. Yes, I truly enjoy seeing scary movies alone. Though there were two other people in the theater, *sigh* they didn't scream or bother me, so I let them live.

So, we all know Annabelle, that is based on a real doll tucked safely away behind glass guarded by priests and the Warrens. We saw Annabelle...one[...]

The Curious Case of Annabelle, the Possessed Doll?

Good morning, spooky people. Today I'd like to introduce you to two prominent figures in the paranormal community. You've probably already heard of them if you've sat through Poltergeist, The Amityville Horror, The Haunted, or The Haunting in Connecticut. You know all those times that you settle in for a good scare, and the opening sequence informs you that the movie you're about to watch is based on a true story? A few of these accounts happily point back to a couple of folks who made it their life's work to document these cases. While the film adaptations[...]
