Movie Night: Annabelle

images

The other night I finally got around to watching Annabelle. I read about the real Annabelle doll years ago so I was excited when the movie came out. I won’t say much about the plot of the movie, except that it is completely different and fictional compared to the true stories of the doll. Still very entertaining.

I read some articles about paranormal happenings on the set of the movie. I always think it’s really interesting when I read stuff like that. The same thing happened with The Conjuring, which is the sequel to Annabelle (even though it came out prior to Annabelle).

Here’s some links to just a couple of those articles if you’re interested:

What I found most interesting is that the doll is blessed twice a month by a priest. I think I read that before, but I’d forgotten. After I watched the movie the other night, I re-read the story for a refresher.

…And There Will Be A Movie

To no one’s surprise, Rev. Maginot has signed a deal with Evergreen Media Holdings to bring “The exorcisms of Latoya Ammons” to the big screen.

Again, details from The IndyStar:

Rev. Maginot declined to disclose the terms of his contract with Evergreen Executive Chairman Tony DeRosa-Grund, calling it a “standard deal.” DeRosa-Grund produced “The Conjuring,” grossing $318 million worldwide.

 

After The Star published an article about Ammons’ claims that she and her three children had been possessed by demons, the story received international attention. More than a dozen movie producers and countless TV shows have clamored for interviews.

 

Maginot, who performed a series of exorcisms on Ammons, said he signed a contract with DeRosa-Grund because he felt the producer wouldn’t sensationalize what happened. “The story is good as it is,” Maginot said. “You don’t need to go crazy with it.”

 

Maginot said he also signed a contract with Zak Bagans, host and executive producer of “Ghost Adventures” on the Travel Channel, to make a documentary. Bagans purchased the Carolina Street home where Ammons and her mother Rosa Campbell say many of the strange things happened. In addition to an on-camera interview, Maginot agreed to go back into the home and participate in another investigation for Bagans’ piece.
