Hello and welcome to my blog on the 1st day of the 2016 AtoZChallenge. Today I have two rather nasty spooks for you in my Fictional Phantoms theme. You definitely wouldn't want to meet either of these on a dark night, or any other time for that matter.
Annabelle (Higgins) (The Conjuring/Annabelle)
The Conjuring. The demon tricks people to invite it in by pretending to be the spirit of a girl. After being taken by Ed and Lorraine Warren, paranormal investigators she lives in a blessed glass case to keep her from harming anyone.
In the spin-off film Annabelle we find out she was once a normal doll, but became possessed when she was clutched in the arms of the murderous Annabelle Higgins as she died.
This is one doll you do not want to play will.
The film version of Annabelle is based on a real doll - you can read all about her here.

A voice will ask if you want:
- blue paper or
- red paper.
- If you answer red you will be sliced into pieces until your clothes are stained red.
- If you answer blue you will be strangled, your face turning blue as you die of lack of air.
There are other versions too involving a cape or vest which are just as nasty and can be read at wikipedia.
So haunted dolls, better or worse than clowns? What would you think if a disembodied voice suddenly started asking you about toilet paper in the public loos?
