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.

I inherited my love of halloween and horror movies from my mom. 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. Some of my other favorites are Hereditary, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Beetlejuice, The Shining, The Conjuring, and much more!
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, which I plan to bring back soon.
My passion project for the site is our digital zine, called Fright Like A Girl that's all about women in horror, made by women who love horror!
In my free time, besides writing for the site, and working on my dream of becoming an actress and film maker, I enjoy making youtube videos (MJ Sawan on youtube), playing video games, going to conventions like Texas Frightmare, and Horror Hound, and cosplaying! I've cosplayed as Nancy Thompson from A Nightmare On Elm Street, Ripley from Aliens, and more.
