Fans of Annabelle prepare yourselves, because you might be about to witness a real life Annabelle 2.0 for yourselves!
The Lineup has teamed up with paranormal specialists over at Destination America to bring you a live-stream of Ann, a slightly creepy and supposedly haunted doll. The live-stream can be watched by anyone at any time over the next two weeks in the hopes that at least one lucky viewer will catch the doll committing some paranormal act.
Take a read of Ann's backstory, thanks to The Lineup:
According to paranormal investigators, Ann was a 13-year-old girl treated for tuberculosis at Waverly Hills Sanatorium in the early 1900s, during a time when the idea of a “rest-cure” was in actuality a certain death sentence. One of Ann’s caretakers was a former aide named Lois, who worked at the institution from 1919 to 1935. She was responsible for the children’s welfare, and unsurprisingly, became very attached to her young patients.
Likewise, the patients relied on Lois … so much so that when they succumbed to their illnesses, their spirits followed the woman home, hoping she could continue caring for them. A friend recommended that Lois obtain vessels to house these unfortunate souls.
Thus, Lois’s doll collection was born.
Although Lois has since passed away, she left detailed journals about her dolls, including Ann. Lois claims Ann was terrified of the dark, and that her spirit, who lives on this doll, cries out for help in the middle of the night with a shaky voice. Lois also reported to her daughter that the Ann doll once cried—a single tear ran down her cheek. Her right arm once moved up and down, as if she was waving.
Investigators have reported a severe drop in temperature while in Ann’s presence, and she emits a strange odor—a damp basement smell.
In addition to being watched 24/7 for the next two weeks straight, Ann will also undergo a barrage of tests to see just how paranormal she really is. So far, there have been a couple bizarre instances, including people allegedly hearing a child's cry, power cords disconnecting themselves, and issues with uploading video to the live feed. Definitely worth keeping an eye on for the next couple of weeks!
Oh, and the best part? At the end of Ann's live streaming stint, one lucky Ann fan has the chance to take her home! Yep, if you think you can stomach living in the same building as this little beauty then head over here for all the contest details.
