'Annabelle' 2014: 'The Conjuring' Actor Patrick Wilson Reveals PHOTO Feat. The Real Annabelle Doll [VIDEO]
Actor Patrick Wilson, who starred in The Conjuring, revealed a picture with the real doll that the movie Annabelle is based on.
On October 3, the actor tweeted the image to time it with the release of the horror film, which released on the same day. In The Conjuring the actor played Ed Warren, one half of the real life demonologist couple that dealt with the case of Annabelle.
In the image, the doll looks rather cute and not remotely as ominous as the one featured in the film. It's mostly a clean Raggedy Ann doll, shelved away in a wooden glass cabinet.
Recently the filmmakers of Annabelle shared spooky instances from the set while filming. Director John L. Leonetti and producer Peter Safran spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about these occurences.
Leonetti shared one instance which he even managed to capture on his camera as proof of some sort of haunting, stating that it was "Really creepy."
"The first [incident] was when we were prepping," Leonetti said. "We went into the apartment where we were shooting, and in the transient window above the living room window. It was a full moon, and there were three fingers drawn through the dust along the window, and our demon has three fingers and three talons. [The markings] were being backlit by the moon. I have a picture! It was sick."
But it was Safran who had the scarier story, calling it "much worse," and his incident definitely makes the finger prints Leonetti witnessed benign.
"We shot in this amazing, old apartment building near Koreatown and we had some funky stuff go down," Safran said. "In particular, the first day that the demon was shooting in full makeup, we brought the demon up in the elevator. He walks out and walks around to the green room to where we're holding the talent, and just as he walks under - a giant glass light fixture is being followed by the actor playing the handyman of the building - and all of a sudden the entire glass light fixture falls down on his head, the janitor's head. And in the script the demon kills the janitor in that hallway. It was totally freaky."
The movie stars Annabelle Wallis as Mia Gordon, Ward Horton as Join Gordon, Alfre Woodard as Evelyn, Eric Laden as Detective Clarkin, Brian Howe as Pete Higgins and Tony Amendola as Father Perez.
The movie is set for release on October 2.
