There’s more horror to be found in the Warren’s vault.
Of the Conjuring Universe’s many spin-offs, Annabelle–a horrific porcelain doll that honestly would be nightmare inducing even if it weren’t a demonic conduit–is the most developed. Sure, she may owe her big-screen existence to The Conjuring proper, but she’s the first in the shared universe to have three films of her very own. Or, at least, she will be with the release of Annabelle Comes Home, the ominously titled follow-up to 2014’s Annabelle and 2017’s Annabelle: Creation.
But this time, Annabelle isn’t alone. This movie features a full-scale catastrophe at the Warrens’ home, thanks to their horror-filled paranormal object vault, and Annabelle herself is only the ringleader. During a set visit in Burbank, California, we got a look at just who, and what, else will be joining her for the fun–and what that means for the hapless humans trapped in there with her.
The actual premise of Annabelle Comes Home shakes out like this. The Warren’s young daughter, Judy (McKenna Grace), is left alone with her babysitter, the mild mannered Mary Ellen (Madison Iseman), while the Warrens are out of town. Mary Ellen is a bit less-than-enthusiastic about the Warrens’ line of work, but Daniela (Katie Sarife), Mary Ellen’s friend who sneaks over while mom and dad are gone, more than makes up for it.
Three kids left alone in a house full of cursed artifacts–what could possibly go wrong?
Surprise: literally so much, as we learned watching the scenes progress on set.
