Scares us just thinking about it.

When you hear it,

you're gonna think we're insane.

Try us.

Please, from the start.

It started out small, hand or leg was

in a different positions. hand or leg was

in a different positions.

Then one day it was in a

completely different room.

It's moving around by itself.

Ever think that maybe somebody

had a key to your apartment?

Or just playing a trick on you?

That's exactly what we thought.

But never once that we find

any sign or evidence of intrusion.

And these all had led you to believe that

the doll was possessed?

Yes. Camilla got in touch with a medium.

We learned from her that a 7-year-old girl

named Annabelle Hagen had

died in this apartment.

She was lonely and took

a liking to my doll.

All she wanted was to be friends.

When we heard this, we

felt really sorry for her.

I mean we're nurses, we help people.

So... we gave her permission

to move into the doll.

Wait! You did what?

She wanted to live with

us by inhabiting the doll.

We said yes. But

then things got worse.

"Miss me?"

When we came home, she was

sitting in the hallway.

But we had left her

in the spare room.

"Miss me?"

Debbie! Debbie, wait!

We were beyond terrified.

We don't know what's going

on or what to do.

- Can you help us?

- Yes, we can.

But firstly, there is no

such thing as Annabelle.

And there never was.

Ghosts don't possess

such a power.

But I think what we have here is something

extremely manipulative.

It's something inhuman.

It was a big mistake

acknowledging this doll.

And through that the inhuman spirit

trick you.

You gave it permission

to infest your life.

What is an inhuman spirit?

In human form.

It's something demonic.

So the doll was never possessed?

No, no, it was used as a conduit. It moves

around to give the impression of possession.

Demonic spirits don't possess things.

They possess people.

It wanted to get inside of you.

Alright that's good, Drew.

You can shut it down now.

Hit the lights.

So we get the church to

send a priest over to

perform a blessing on the

house and the occupants.

Whatever was oppressing the apartment,

was no longer with them.

Any questions?


Where's the doll now?

Someplace safe.


So, what are you guys? I mean,

what do people call you?


We've been called demonologists,

it's one name for us.

Ghost hunters, paranormal




But we preferred to be known

simply as Ed and Lorraine Warren.

Here we are.

- Wow! You hear that?

- I don't hear anything.

- Exactly.

- Oh, okay!

Okay. Guys!

Oh god, we're in

the middle of nowhere.

I'm so excited!

Where's my yes?

I'll race ya!

- Are you guys excited?

- Yes.

Come on Sadie!

- I get my own room!

- Oh, really?

- I call dips on the room!

- What?

Do I get to pick my own room or do I

have no choice in that either?

Well, first cute boy she'll meet,

she'll forget about Jersey.

Oh great! Can't wait.

Come on, Sadie!

Sadie, let's go!

Hey! Come!

What's the matter with you?

Hey, come on, girl!

Alright, suit yourself!

Coming through!

Woah, watch out, Dad.

Where do you want it?

That goes into the living room.

Hey Andrea! Where's my wind chimes?

Uh, I think Nancy got it in the other room.

Thank you. Nancy, have you

seen my wind chimes? This?

Yes. Give it to me!

You're mean!

Hey, Mom. Can I hang

this wind chimes?

Of course! There is a line

outside you can hang it on.

Honey, have April come in, okay?

It's gonna be dark soon.


Come on, April. Mama

wants you inside.

Look what I found, Cindy!

One... Two ..

- Three.

- Run!

- No peeking!

- Four.

Are you guys done with the pizza? I

don't want it to go to waste.


It's expensive feeding you girls.

Seven... Eight ..

Nine... Ten.

Ready or not, here I come!

Okay, clap!

Guys, you don't know

the house well enough.

Someone's gonna get hurt.

I'm okay, I'm okay!

Second clap!

That's cheating.



Whoa, whoa!

Are you okay?

Oh, yeah. Well, uh...

All right! Well, what we break now?

Will you get out of there, please?

I didn't mean to.

- It's Christine's fault.

- My fault?

Oh, geez!

- Christine did it!

- No I didn't!

- Oh no, you pushed me!

- Oh, no.

Hey, Nancy, can you go get

me the matches, please?

What's going on?

Nancy broke something.

...Shut up!

- Oh, it was you!

- What's up?

- No.


Think we have a cellar

or something.

I want to see! I want to see!

Here, matches? Thank you!

- Nancy!

- I want to see too.

Okay, I wanna see it.


Oh, man!


What do you see down there?

Uh... It's hard to tell, you know.

There's an old piano and a

whole bunch of garbage.

Son of a...



Come on up.

I don't want any of you girls going down there.

The place is loaded of spiders.

Euww! Oh! Ugh!

Stop it, Nancy!

It's not funny!

Got extra square footage down there,

I'll checked it out in the morning.

- Why people board it up?

- I don't know.

OK, guys, show's over, let's go, up to bed!

- Please. Thank you!

- Time for bed.

- Man, I am fried.

- Something's up with Sadie.

Yeah, I don't know what her problem is.

Couldn't get her to come inside.

We can't leave her out there. She's

alright, I got her on a chain.

Sadie, Sadie! Be quiet!

Thanks for making this work.

I know it's a lot to pay off.

It's going to be great, isn't it?

It's great already.
