“ANNABELLE” Returns in Creepy Trailer for “CONJURING” Spin-Off

What if the lasting effects of James Wan’s THE CONJURING are a return of both well-crafted fright films and accursed dolls? Both are seemingly promised in the first teaser for ANNABELLE, the spin-off featuring the breakout star of last summer’s haunting hit. 

ANNABELLE’s teaser echoes that first, clapping glimpse of THE CONJURING, which eschewed an extended reveal of plot across an entire film and instead let much of one sequence play out and get under the viewer’s skin. Here, an ill-fated couple brings Annabelle into their home in anticipation of a baby and a pleasantly Wan-styled scenario (patient, creepy) plays out. Fitting, as CONJURING and INSIDIOUS cinematographer John Leonetti directs.

ANNABELLE is in theaters October 3rd and, along with OUIJA, may just make for a spooky October at the theater.
