    "'We’d just been shooting for a couple of weeks and she has bruises all over her body. First of all, kids don’t do stunts. She hasn’t done any stunts. She didn’t get hit by anything.'"

    "'It wasn’t incredibly painful. It might have felt like a bruise… It was these three, very distinct, what looks like claw marks, that long nails or long fingertips, like thin fingertips could make. But it didn’t hurt..I woke up with that, and I knew I had a choice to give into the fear, and it’s like mental gymnastics. You just really gird up mentally, and you just don’t accept that. There’s evidence there, but I was adamant about not feeling fear. It’s emotional armor. You just learn; you figure it out. You figure how to build it around yourself, even though there’s clear evidence of some strangeness that’s occurred. My husband did not do that to me. I did not scratch some mosquito bite… It’s inexplicable.'"

    McKenna Grace: "'Madison and I had a scene where we had to walk down a corridor, and we heard three knocks on a door but the camera was rolling so we kept going. We did it a third time and we heard it again. At that point, I asked Madison if she heard it and we both thought it was weird. In the first ‘Conjuring,’ three knocks is a sign of the holy trinity: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We opened the door and Annabelle was sitting there in a rocking chair. We thought the guys were just messing with us. The next take, we heard the knock again and we opened the door again — and Annabelle was gone.'"

    Grace McKenna: "'I was wearing [rainbow-colored rosary with a crucifix] and all of a sudden it just broke. I had been wearing it all day and nothing happened. It just broke — it was the strangest experience.'"

    "'I brought my camera and I took photos of everyone, and when I would take photos of Annabelle, every time, it would come out black. I took a photo of with her two different cameras, and both times, it came out black. Every other photo was fine. I thought it maybe was the camera reflecting the case, but I took the photos of her outside the case. I also took a photo of me, Vera and Patrick, and Patrick wears this big cross in the movie, and when I took the picture, the cross was whited out in the photo with black stuff around it.'"
