Annabelle, the possessed doll that made ‘The Conjuring’ movie a global success,and which spawned her own movie in 2014, returns August 11th to terrify audiences once more.
Now, you might not be a fan of creepy dolls, and choose never to ever see a possessed doll film, but if you can muster the courage, Annabelle:Creation promises to take us back..back to the very beginning of Annabelle’s history.
It’s no secret that creepy dolls go way back in the horror genre. Like me, if you grew up in the 80’s, you’ll remember The ‘Puppet Master’ franchise and of course, good ol’ Chucky. So what’s different about Annabelle you ask? In a word, unpredictability. This is what gives Annabelle her edge. One minute she seems harmless,the next, you’re running for your life.
Synopsis: In Annabelle:Creation, “Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.”
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Annabelle:Creation stars Alicia Vela-Bailey, Miranda Otto,and Stephanie Sigman and is distributed by Warner Brothers.
So will Annabelle:Creation be as good as it’s predecessor? Does Annabelle still have what it takes to make our skin crawl? We certainly hope so. From the looks of the trailer it’s off to a good start. Once you watch the trailer, let us know what you think.
