A lot of people that I've talked to have said that the Annabelle doll featured in The Conjuring was the scariest part of the movie. A ton of audience members felt the same way, which is why Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema decided to make a standalone spin-off film that focuses on the evil haunted doll.
The doll actually exists and is currently locked away in an occult museum in Connecticut. The doll is visited twice a month by a priest who blesses it. Why anyone would want to keep a doll like this around is beyond me. It looks like a wonderfully creepy film, though!
The supernatural thriller Annabelle begins before the evil was unleashed.
John Form has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia - a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn't last long.
On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now... Annabelle.
You can watch the previously released teaser trailer here. The James Wan-produced horror movie is set to be released on October 3rd. I won't lie… the last part of this trailer sent chills down my spine.
