Annabelle has taken on a life of her own and kind of quietly snuck into horror icon territory. The one-time spooky set piece in James Wan’s The Conjuring universe. Her stand alone debut – 2014 hit Annabelle – pretty much guaranteed we would be seeing the creepy doll again and sure enough, with Annabelle Creation, we get an origins story. Director David F. Sandberg, who everyone should remember for Light’s Out, kind of took the premise and ran with it. The trailer is good – give it a look.
Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson, Philippa Coulthard, Grace Fulton, Lou Lou Safran , Samara Lee , and Tayler Buck making her feature film debut, with Anthony LaPaglia and Miranda Otto.
Annabelle Creation has been rated R and hits theaters on August 11th!
