Most intimidating movie characters
This part of the movie is pure fiction, which takes place in 1969, the year before Donna comes into possession of the doll (which was likely purchased new).It was created to provide a fictionalized explanation as to how the demonic spirit became attached to the doll.
According to the story told by Ed and Lorraine Warren, a former owner of the Annabelle doll, Donna, claimed that she would come home to find penciled messages written in childlike writing on parchment paper.The medium became involved 4-6 weeks after the paranormal activity first began.The medium held a séance and introduced Donna and her roommate Angie to the spirit of Annabelle, a seven-year-old girl who had played in the fields that existed where Donna and Angie's apartment complex now stood.Apparently, Annabelle's lifeless body had been discovered in the fields.Out of compassion, Donna and Angie permitted the spirit that they thought was that of Annabelle to stay with them and possess the doll.In real life, the spirit pretends to be that of an innocent young girl named Annabelle, who supposedly died when she was still a child.
This correlates more with what happens in the prequel No.
At the same time, the doll's owner never injured her finger on a sewing machine.
The demon also never dragged the owner across the floor back toward the fire. A man named Lou was the fiancé of Donna's roommate Angie and had been staying with them since the doll had arrived.
In fact, the entire sequence involving the fire is fictional.
The demon never caused a stove to turn on, resulting in a bag of stove top popcorn to overcook and explode into flames.
The messages read "Help Us" and "Help Lou" (Lou was Donna's roommate Angie's fiancé and had been staying with them).
