The lights dimmed as an eery hush fell upon thousands of WonderCon attendees in the arena Saturday afternoon. There were squeals of delight from horror fans as well as shrieks of terror. Then there was nervous laughter as people covered their eyes to shield themselves from a familiar and creepy porcelain doll.
Annabelle Creation is the prequel to everyone’s worst nightmare of a rosy cheeked, possessed doll. David Sandburg, director of Lights Out, brings us the chilling origin story of Annabelle who we find in an orphanage locked away from the girls.
Which makes sense because kids are not curious at all, especially after being strictly forbidden to open a door…well, as luck would have it an orphan opens the door. Then another door which unleashes a tirade of chilling moments. And you think you know what is going to happen but really, you don’t.
Casting really hit the mark with the young actress in the trailer, who also happens to be named after Samara from the ring. Not only did she enjoy acting in a horror film but she requested to be in the creepy scenes. They hit the horror jackpot with that kid.
