There’s nothing creepier than a creepy doll that’s totally possessed, right? What about a creepy doll that’s actually totally possessed and two ghost hunters have the proof?

That’s the terrifying backstory behind Annabelle, the new horror movie starring that terrifyingly terrorizing doll from select scenes of The Conjuring. As the story goes, real-life ghostbusters Ed and Lorraine Warren apparently encountered a Raggedy Ann doll named Annabelle during a routine exorcism in the apartment of two college-aged girls. This doll had reportedly been moving on its own, spurting blood and even targeting the girls’ male friend. The Warrens say they investigated Annabelle and deemed her motivated by a demon (whose origins we learn about in Annabelle). According to the story, the Warrens initially took Annabelle away and gave her free reign in their home, but once she started acting up again, they called in a priest. And once that priest was in a near-fatal car accident after telling the doll off, they locked her up for good in a special box inside their museum of similarly spooky finds.

Annabelle is still in the Warrens’ place to this day. Actor Patrick Wilson, who played Ed in The Conjuring, even posted pictures on his Instagram account of his visits to her resting — or is it waiting? — place.

The scariest thing though, is that Annabelle isn’t even the most chilling cinematic creation to come out of actual horror stories. Since it’s nearly Halloween, the season for the spooky and the scary, let’s play the Warrens and investigate 10 horror movies that reportedly come from truly bloodcurdling life experiences.
