That Damn ANNABELLE Is Back in New Trailer – GeekMundo

So we finally have a better idea of what to expect from New Line Cinema‘s Annabelle thanks to the release of the first official trailer.  The teaser explained how the doll became possessed by a crazy broad, but we didn’t actually see anything more detailed.  This hell doll was practically guaranteed its own movie because it was the breakout star of James Wan’s 2013 film The Conjuring.

In the trailer, we see a nice little family make a series of fuck ups straight out of the book of Bad Horror Movie Decisions.  I cannot imagine why anyone would want to keep the doll that had blood from a murderous lunatic dripped upon it, on top of how dreadful the doll is to look at.  She should have gotten herself a Barbie and called it a day.  I do hope they keep it a tad bit more fresh than the trailer would indicate.  It is awfully reminiscent of last year’s Insidious 2.



John Form has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia—a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn’t last long.

On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now…Annabelle.

Annabelle Wallis (“X-Men: First Class”) and Ward Horton (“The Wolf of Wall Street”) star as the Forms. Oscar nominee Alfre Woodard (“Cross Creek,” “Twelve Years a Slave”) stars as Evelyn, a neighbor who owns a bookstore and is familiar with the occult. Rounding out the cast are Kerry O’Malley (TV’s “Those Who Kill”) and Brian Howe (“Devil’s Knot”) as neighbors Sharon and Pete Higgins; Tony Amendola (TV’s “Once Upon A Time”) as Father Perez; and Eric Ladin (TV’s “Boardwalk Empire,”) as Detective Clarkin.

“Annabelle” reunites the filmmakers behind 2013’s hugely successful supernatural thriller “The Conjuring.” James Wan, director of the global hit, is producing “Annabelle” with Peter Safran. John R. Leonetti, who served as cinematographer on “The Conjuring,” is directing.

I’d burn Annabelle’s wooden ass to ashes and freeze them in a bucket of holy water if I were that lady.
