Don’t go in this one room, they said. Sigh. You didn’t have many requirements, babysitter.
Check out the new trailer to arrive for upcoming Conjuring universe entry Annabelle Comes Home, which brings back Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga to the series as Ed and Lorraine Warren. The warrens’ daughter, Judy (Mckenna Grace), and her friends are the target of the titular possessed doll this time around, marking another highly personal attack on the demonologists.
Looks like an as-expected entry in the hit horror franchise that James Wan kicked off in 2013, with that oh-so creepy doll, that house, dumb character moves, and creepy jump scares. We’ll see how screenwriter Gary Dauberman fares in his directorial debut, after having earned writing credits with Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation and The Nun, as well as It and the upcoming It: Chapter Two. Wan has the ‘Story By’ credit here.
Annabelle Comes Home opens in the US on June 26 and arrives in Australia on June 27.
Official synopsis for Annabelle Comes Home:
“Annabelle Comes Home” is the third instalment of New Line Cinema’s hugely successful “Annabelle” films starring the infamous sinister doll from the “Conjuring” universe. Gary Dauberman, the screenwriter of the “Annabelle” films, “IT” and “The Nun,” makes his directorial debut on the film, which is produced by Peter Safran (“Aquaman”), who has produced all the films in the “Conjuring” franchise, and “Conjuring” universe creator James Wan (“Aquaman”).
Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her “safely” behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest’s holy blessing. But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new target—the Warrens’ ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.
ANNABELLE COMES HOME stars McKenna Grace as Judy; Madison Iseman as her babysitter, Mary Ellen; and Katie Sarife as troubled friend Daniela; with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprising their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren.
