The Annabelle Haunting

In this chilling episode, I dive into the infamous story of Annabelle. The antique Raggedy Ann doll that terrorized a pair of nurses in the 1970s. What began as a simple birthday gift quickly turned into a nightmare as the doll displayed sinister behavior. From weird movements to bloodstains and violent attacks, the spirit of Annabelle Higgins made her presence known in terrifying ways. Join me as I explore the dark history behind this case and the ultimate intervention by paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. Discover why this tale continues to captivate and horrify to this day.
