Trailer: Annabelle: Creation (2017)

In the midst of the news about the makers of The Conjuring franchise, and their spin offs, the trailer for the second Annabelle movie has dropped. While I do think it looks like a decent film, I already have a problem with it. The first Annabelle movie does not show the true story of Annabelle, as told by the Warrens, that is shown in the first Conjuring film. They created a story about how Annabelle became, before the girls that the Warrens got her from had her. In Annabelle the two main characters neighbors’ are killed by their daughter, Annabelle Higgins, and her boyfriend, who are members of a demonic cult. After they kill Annabelle’s parents, they head next door to the main characters’ house and Annabelle dies while holding the doll that the audience already knows as Annabelle, and a drop of her blood gets into her eye, presumably showing how Annabelle becomes possessed, and where she gets her name from.

In Annabelle: Creation, they present us with yet another origin story for Annabelle. Watch the trailer for Annabelle: Creation, which comes out in theaters August 11th, below, and let us know how you feel about all of this.

Current film student, amateur film critic and background extra. Future film maker, professional film critic and actress. I inherited my love of halloween and horror movies from my mom. We go to Texas Frightmare Weekend every year, and I’ve just started o branch out and go to other conventions, as well as cosplay at them. In 2017 I cosplayed as Nancy Thompson from A Nightmare on Elm Street, and in 2018 you can catch me at the convention as Ellen Ripley, complete with a facehugger AND chestburster. My favorite horror movie is Scream, which is highly ironic considering I was deathly afraid of Ghostface, who I had very vivid nightmares about that I still remember perfectly, as a child. Now, the films that scare me the most tend to be about the paranormal. Even though I’ve pretty much been a life long fan of horror I still have a lot of catching up to do when it comes to the classics, ergo my Millennial Morgan Plays Catch Up reviews.
