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.
The Conjuring has come a long way since its debut back in 2013. Not only have there been sequels, but there have also been spin-offs. In fact, there is an entire universe based on The Conjuring.
And that is all thanks in part to James Wan. Wan, who directed the first two Conjuring films, seemed like he would be closing out the trilogy. However, that’s not the case anymore. Wan will be stepping away from The Conjuring 3, and letting Michael Chaves take over directorial duties. But Wan won’t be too far away as he will still be a producer on the film. More on the story below.
Annabelle, that creepy doll that first appeared in The Conjuring, refuses to be put on the shelf. After that first film and two successful spinoffs, New Line Cinema and WB announced that they will be releasing Annabelle 3, with IT and The Nun writer Gary Dauberman lined up to direct the film.
Now we are learning more about what the expect from the terrifying sequel. During a special ScareDiego panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, Dauberman and Annabelle producer James Wan spoke about the upcoming film, with Wan saying that it will be like Night at the Museum but with Annabelle. Find our more about the story, below.
I’m not a fan of the Conjuring films. Not because they are bad films, but they scare the bejeezus out of me. The success of both films have given way for spinoffs, and thus launching what is known as The Conjuring Universe. Following the success of two surprisingly good Annabelle films, comes The Nun.
The portrait which appeared in The Conjuring 2 is getting its very own spinoff, which isn’t in the same vein as the Annabelle films, but it does give us pause as to why we keep inflecting scars on ourselves watching these terrifyingly good horrors/thrillers. Check out the first trailer below.
