Did you know that Annabelle is just not a fiction horror movie. It is a Hollywood horror movie based on a true story. Annabelle in real is one of the many haunted dolls in the world which is kept away at the haunted Occult Museum in London from the year 1970 by the paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren. The doll has been exorcised several times by a priest who visits the museum regularly, but there is still an attachment of soul to the doll.
Similarly, there are some other Hollywood horror films which are based on real life incidents and paranormal occurrences.

The movie shows the paranormal activities that were seen by a family after they moved into a Rhode Island farmhouse in the 1970s.
