The third instalment in the Annabelle series has unleashed a trailer and in it, all hell literally breaks loose. In a way, Annabelle Comes Home is like the Avengers because it brings together all your favourite possessed-evil-spirits-demon-people-killing toys and things from The Conjuring universe.
As fans will know, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren have locked Annabelle up in the artefacts room in their home. She sits in a glass case, blessed by a priest… seemingly still. But an unholy night of horror awaits when an extremely stupid person decides to touch everything in the room, awakening Annabelle who then breaks out of her glass case and rouses all the evil spirits who are keen to mess with the Warrens’ ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.
The Haunting of Hill House star McKenna Grace, also of Captain Marvel and Gifted, stars as young Judy, Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), plays her babysitter Mary Ellen, Katie Sarife (Supernatural) stars as troubled friend Daniela, and legends Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprise their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren.
Annabelle Comes Home will be Gary Dauberman‘s directorial debut. He is best known as the screenwriter behind the Annabelle movies, The Nun, and the film adaptation of It. The Conjuring universe masterminds James Wan and Peter Safran produced the film so expect another wonderful cinema experience.
Annabelle Comes Home is slated for release this June.
Ah, bloody hell.
As for The Conjuring 3, Bloody Disgusting reported last year that the movie will be based on the Devil Made Me Do It Case, in which a man on trial for murder claims he was possessed by a demon.
A 1986 article by the Associated Press reports Johnson – 19 at the time – killed his landlord and was convicted of first-degree manslaughter. Johnson was sentenced to 10-to-20 years in prison but was released after five years because of his good behaviour.
Johnson claimed he had become possessed by a demon after getting involved and challenging the devil during an exorcism of a young boy.
In the article, the actual Ed Warren told AP: “Arne understands what happened to him. He now knows if something happens how to ward it off and he won’t be stupid enough to take on the devil again.″
