I tried it: The horror film edition. Taking a cursed doll home for the night is no joke, but we’d do anything for a good scare.

The Conjuring universe has explored an endless treasure chest of horror relics inspired by real-life events. Ed and Lorraine Warren, famous paranormal investigators, worked on some of the most infamous hauntings.
In Annabelle Comes Home, Annabelle is released from her case, awakening an evil demon inside of her. The Annabelle doll is inspired by a Raggedy Ann doll from the 60s who was apparently possessed by the spirit of a young girl named Annabelle Higgins.
To get into the spirit of the film, we took Annabelle home and spent one terrifying night with the doll. (We may or may not have haunted our home in the process.) Here’s what went down:

Should be fine. She’s just a doll, right? Stay tuned... pic.twitter.com/mATf0WE5Xx
If she’s going to be creeping us out all night, she can creep out our neighbours all night, too. 😰 pic.twitter.com/gpyJVhDqAd— Cineplex (@CineplexMovies) June 27, 2019
Does anyone have a phone number for a good priest? ☎️— Cineplex (@CineplexMovies) June 27, 2019
Correction: The voices want our soul, not your sofa. Yikes.— Cineplex (@CineplexMovies) June 27, 2019
Annabelle Comes Home is for fans of real-life horrors.
If you’re okay with the fact that the events in these films are inspired by actual events, Annabelle is the horror film for you. The Warrens and their spooky stories will likely leave you sleepless, so you’ll want to take your friend to experience this terror in the dark, and on the big screen, together.
