People can be sincere and still be sincerely wrong.

My own opinion is that the Warrens fall somewhere between sincere kooks and sly hucksters. And they actually do a lot of harm to genuine investigations into the supernatural and paranormal with all their foo-fooery.

Sly? I do a little face reading. We had a thread yrs back reading photos of ppl we knew nothing about; just for fun. There's a photo of Lorraine and Ed years past in one these links in the thread. I stared at it for a moment.. before your post; sly was the first word coming to mind.
Does anyone know which photo?

That thread must have been before my time. But would you buy a used car from these people?

Yep, top photo.

Any car they sold would need an exorcism. I don't think I could take a chance. You know, remaining energy and all.

Now that my sneers & sarcasm on the Warrens and Annabelle said...

Disposal of the possessed object In “Annabelle: Creation”, two priests come to the home to bless the doll Annabelle and to sprinkle it with holy water before it is sealed away in a Scripture-lined closet. Good as far as it goes, Father Robert thought, but he was adamant that an exorcist would never leave the possessed object there intact, to be found by someone in the future. “You would take the curse off the object,” he explained. “You could burn it or take it apart; but it would be decommissioned somehow.”

I don't expect horror movies to adhere to Catholic doctrine. It's a horror movie. It's fiction.

What does irk me is when movies and TV claim to be doing something according to Catholic doctrine, but they don't bother to do their homework. Same thing with any faith. If your story is going to use "what Catholics believe" or "what Baptists believe" or "what Buddhists believe," then at least make an attempt to get it right. Otherwise, just leave the faith out of it and make fiction.

Ive still not found any story related to that vampire coffin they had, Im sure there must be one, but all Ive ever read about, is people making comments about it seeing it. Id really like to hear how they came into possession of this, I guess it could have just been a demon, masquerading as a 'vampire'...IDK?


Im not sure if I ever told this story on CD, it was years ago, (related to vampires), I wont go into detail here, but long story short, I was doing some research on the 'black eyed children' phenomena, and I briefly talked with a guy and his wife, that had supposedly met a vampire once (and had some evidence to back it up too)! Its a really odd and strange story, that kind of had an eerie twist, I havent thought about it in awhile, but this thread reminded me of it.
