Ever since the Annabelle doll first appeared in James Wan‘s The Conjuring, she has been on a wave of terror that has spread across multiple spinoffs in the Conjuring universe. And now, she is ready to come back to where it all started in Annabelle Comes Home. For after spending her creepy life scaring the living daylights out of two families, she finds herself back encased in a glass box at the lovely home of Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga). You know, the paranormal investigation couple who we saw in the first Conjuring. Well, all three are back for an all-new haunting that will see Ed and Lorraine protect their daughter (Mckenna Grace) from the nightmarish doll that will forever haunt our memories.
Check out the new trailer here below.
From the moment that we saw the room of possessed items in the Warren household, Warner Bros. saw the opportunity to go far beyond the sequels and tell stories about each of these items through a series spinoffs. And, for the most part, it has worked, with Annabelle being the most successful of the bunch. Other spinoffs include The Nun, The Curse of La Llorona, and the upcoming The Crooked Man.
But Annabelle Comes Home will be the first spinoff that features Wilson and Farmiga. Up until now, the two have only appeared in The Conjuring films. But now, it has come full circle for them as their film was the first to introduce the Annabelle doll and the final installment of the Annabelle trilogy would feature them.
And it looks like we will also revisit the room, as one of the babysitters for the Warrensâ€™ daughter gets a little bit too curious about what is in the room as she touches everything in it and opens the glass casing that imprisons the evil spirit with Annabelle thereby unleashing hell. But I’m curious to see if there will be a spinoff about a possessed piano.
Gary Dauberman wrote and directed Annabelle Comes Home. James Wan produced. Here’s the official plot synopsis:
Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her â€œsafelyâ€ behind sacred glass and enlisting a priestâ€™s holy blessing. But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new targetâ€”the Warrensâ€™ ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.
