Annabelle (2014) - Spin-off of The Conjuring

Teaser

Quote:
‘Annabelle’ is directed by ‘The Conjuring’ cinematographer John Leonetti, though James Wan returned to produce, while Annabelle Wallis, Ward Horton, and Alfre Woodard lead the cast. The film will hit theaters this October 3, just in time for Halloween.
IMDb listing



Quote:
Annabelle is the first of three micro-budget spin-offs about the Warrens’ cases that are being made in addition to the upcoming sequel, The Conjuring 2. Obviously the design of the doll has a big built-in fright factor, but this first teaser just isn’t all that scary – and since James Wan isn’t involved on the creative side of things, fans of his horror work will need more of an incentive to give this spin-off a chance.

While the story of Annabelle that was told via flashback in The Conjuring is based on the version of events documented by the Warrens, this seems to be an original story about the people who owned the doll before it ended up in the hands of college students Donna and Angie and, in turn, the Warrens. Based on this short scene, it seems like the movie will show the genesis of Annabelle’s nasty nature, as the doll becomes “infected” by the spirit of one of Lydia and John’s attackers.

"Annabelle is the first of three micro-budget spin-offs"
IMDB:
Budget
$5,000,000 (estimated)

Yeah, that sure is a micro budget
Oh well, compared to the most Hollywood movies

Actually looking forward to this.
I really enjoyed The Conjuring, and this creepy fucking doll was one of the highlights of that film.

It sounds great. I loved The Conjuring, and more creepy dolls are always good!

I really dig the child's play like origin they're going for with Annabelle.

The trailer was all that creepy but cool just the same. I wonder what the other 2 spin off cases will be about.

i felt The Conjuring was well made but not scary at all, felt like Insidious Light

strangely enough, if handled well, this could turn out to be very interesting since lower budget can mean higher creativity

Maybe about some of the other objects that were in that room with the doll or about other stories with the psychics.
