The demonic mayhem of Annabelle Comes Home may have proven fatally terrifying for a 77-year-old British national who took in a screening of the film while on vacation in Thailand. What makes this story especially creepy is that no one knows at what point during the movie the man died. It wasn’t until the lights went on again that someone sitting next to the pensioner noticed he had passed.
The Daily Mail reported:
Bernard Channing, a 77-year-old tourist from Gedling, Notts, had been to see Annabelle Comes Home last night while on holiday in Pattaya, Thailand. The woman [who discovered him dead] is said to have been ‘shaken’ at discovering the dead body and shouted for staff who rushed into the room and called the emergency services at 8pm local time.
Mr. Channing was pronounced dead inside the venue and his covered body was taken away by a side door and loaded into an ambulance. Resident Monthira Phengrat who arrived at the cinema after the death said that guests were ‘very upset’.
