It is quite a thrilling adventure. Before the events of this movie, poor Annabelle was a little doll like any other, but Fate had its toll and she became one of the most talked about haunted item in history.

Inspired by a real life story, the story-line of Annabelle, though fictional, has its takings from the real story of the rag doll. This October, 2015 movie directed by John R. Leonetti, was released on home media via VCD, DVD and Blu-ray by Sony DADC, India’s leading home entertainment content provider, a couple of weeks ago.

Mia is very excited but her excitement and happiness doesn’t last long as their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, one night and the couple is violently attacked. Though the couple survive this encounter, they are unaware that the cultists, have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now Annabelle.
