Thanks to “The Conjuring” series of movies (and its spinoff “Annabelle”), the real-life Annabelle doll has become one of the most famous “haunted” artifacts in America. And now its caretakers are preparing to relocate the doll in front of a live audience.

ITM got up close with the movie’s Annabelle a few years ago in person, but the real Annabelle resides in the Warren Occult Museum in Monroe, Connecticut. And whether you’re a skeptic like me or a tried-and-true believer in the supernatural, you have to admit the idea of a haunted doll is at the very least a little creepy.

Today the directors of the museum Dan Rivera and Tony Spera will be moving Annabelle into a new case, presumably for the first time since ghost hunter Ed Warren (played by Patrick Wilson in “The Conjuring”) gave the doll a permanent home back in the 1970s.

“Annabelle” fans and paranormal enthusiasts can watch the transfer occur live this evening on Dan Rivera’s Facebook page:

Of course, as you can see in the image above, the real-life Annabelle isn’t nearly as scary-looking as the Hollywood version. In fact it just kind of looks like Raggedy Ann. I hope writing that doesn’t put some kind of curse on me.

Either way, tune in tonight to see what happens.


  1. Why is she being moved?? Did she do something?????

    Probably just to put it in a fancier setup since it’s become such a draw (and also to keep someone from stealing it, I wager…)

    Since I missed it because of work, does anyone know where there could be footage of it?
