Horror fans have long enjoyed the Conjuring franchise - a truly bone-chilling haunted house movie series that keeps on giving, in terms of scares. But what makes these movies all the more terrifying? When they break that barrier into real life.
Recently, the Annabelle doll, which got its own spin-off in 2014, has gone "missing" from Occult Museum and everyone's freaking out... But now, the theory has reached a conclusion.
For some of us, there's an undeniable draw to the darker side of life.

Why do we like being scared so much?
via: GettyPerhaps it's that rush of adrenaline that makes us feel a bit more alive? Or maybe we're just suckers for punishment - who knows?
But one horror franchise has always kept on going is The Conjuring.
For many, they're the pinnacle of '10s horror.
There's a wide range of films in the franchise.Alongside the Conjuring films, the franchise also includes 2014's Annabelle, 2017's Annabelle: Creation and the much-anticipated Annabelle Comes Home, which came out in June this year.
And that's not all.For those who favor a religious horror, the franchise also offers 2018's The Nun, 2019's The Curse of La Llorona, and two upcoming Nun sequels.
We can't even decide which is the scariest one.Perhaps one reason for its success, is that it plays into a favorite horror film trope - that of the haunted figures.
But there's something that makes these movies even more frightening.

So, when elements of the movies seep into our lives... We're left terrified.
For those of you that might not be aware, Annabelle is a "haunted" doll.
The hashtag "Annabelle" started trending on Twitter a few days ago.
