A new trailer for Annabelle: Creation has dropped – and it looks pretty chilling. A prequel to Annabelle, about a possessed doll, the franchise is a spin-off from the popular The Conjuring series of films.
The film tells the origin story of creepy doll Annabelle and stars Miranda Otto and Anthony LaPaglia. After losing their daughter in a car accident, they apparently make contact with her spirit. But when she asks to “move into” the doll, they realise it’s not their daughter and lock the doll away. But they end up playing straight into the evil spirit’s hands. Needless to say, things get a whole lot more sinister.
Lights Out director David F. Sandberg takes the reins, while Gary Dauberman, who wrote Annabelle, is on screenplay duties.
Here’s the official synopsis from Warner Bros:
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.
Annabelle: Creation is released on August 11 in the US and UK.
