Annabelle: Creation is the second spin-off film based on the possessed doll originally shown in The Conjuring. The first film released back in 2014 to poor reception from both fans and critics alike due to the cookie cutter nature of the scares, stock characters, and poor use of the actual Annabelle doll. However, the film did quite well and grossed over 254 million dollars world wide. Now, director David F. Sandberg aims to take the famed doll back to its inception with Annabelle: Creation.
This next chapter is set before the original, as it follows a rural family who loses their daughter in an accident and decides to let her spirit possess a doll. Sometime after, a group of orphans move into the home with this family and take refuge. The “spirit” then latches onto one of the girls and begins haunting them, in an attempt to take complete control. Annabelle: Creation is set to release on Friday, August 11
