A few months ago we got word that New Line and Warner Bros. had penciled in an October 3 2014 release date for an 'unknown' horror project, which we speculated to be ANNABELLE, a spin-off of THE CONJURING that we reported on last year. Now both entities have confirmed that ANNABELLE will indeed haunt theaters on October 3 of this year, just in time for that happy haunting season of Halloween!
Annabelle Wallis, Alfre Woodard, Eric Ladin, Brian Howe, and Ward Horton are starring in ANNABELLE, with John Leonetti, the cinematographer on THE CONJURING, directing from a script by Gary Dauberman.
If you checked out THE CONJURING you'll remember the creepy haunted doll named Annabelle that sat as part of a collection of demonic objects assembled by paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who were portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in the hit film.
Hopefully we'll be seeing some artwork and a trailer for ANNABELLE soon. I'm curious about this one. Haunted/possessed doll flicks always give me the willies.
