The Warren Occult Museum is housed in the basement of the Warrens’ actual home in Monroe, Connecticut, and is full of haunted artifacts and images taken from their cases.Ed and Lorraine really did take the doll back with them to their museum and keep it in a glass case.The eerie American Girl porcelain look isn’t like the doll from the real case — instead, it was a big Raggedy Ann doll with red yarn hair and button eyes.Andrea said she secretly watched a seance during the haunting and saw her mother speak a language she didn’t recognize in a different voice, before her chair levitated and Carolyn was thrown across the room.The Warrens’ case with Annabelle starts in the hobby shop seen at the end of the film, where the doll was purchased by the mother of one of the nurses.According to the Warrens, a man came to the museum and banged on Annabelle’s case, mocking the doll until Ed Warren threw him out.Lorraine Warren claims the man’s girlfriend told him the pair were laughing about the doll afterward while riding away on his motorcycle — until he mysteriously lost control and crashed into a tree.Janet Hodgson said she faked a very small amount of the evidence in the case, claiming it was because so many people were investigating and sometimes spooky things wouldn’t happen on cue.The monster seen in the movie was actually just a manifestation of the demon antagonist Valak used to attack and scare the Hodgson family.Creation is another Hollywood addition to the mythosSince the movie “Annabelle” is a Hollywood creation and not the actual, true backstory of the real-life doll in the Warren museum, the same is true of Annabelle:The second movie is another prequel to “The Conjuring” that goes back even further in the doll’s life, to track where it first came from, but it’s pretty far removed from the Warrens’ cases at this point.
