Watch out for Annabelle!

Good news for horror movie fans as the spooky doll has come to life again! Another spinoff of The Conjuring universe is about to hit the theatres this year on June 28. The latest installment of the Annabelle franchise, titled Annabelle Comes Home, is directed by Gary Dauberman and produced by The Conjuring famed, James Wan. The supernatural horror movie features McKenna Grace, Madison Isemen and Katir Sarif, among others. Starring alongside them are Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, reprising their roles as the real-life ghost-hunters, Ed and Lorraine Warren. A recent poster of the film has stirred up numerous fan theories. Posted by James Wan on his Instagram, the poster depicts Annabelle on a shelf, locked up amongst the accursed antiques of Ed and Lorraine Warren. On top of the showcase, rests a warning sign and beneath Annabelle, sits a scary clown, sneaking a peek from inside a jack-in-the-box. Rumor has it that the sinister doll not only finds its way out of the sealed shelf, but also activates the now-dormant evil of the room. In jest, Wan terms the situation as “basically A Night at the Museum with Annabelle!” This time, presumably, Warren's ten-year-old daughter, Judy falls victim to their mischiefs. The first two prequels of the upcoming film, titled Annabelle and Annabelle: Creation, were released in 2014 and 2017 respectively. Previously, Annabelle was seldom seen in the films; but this time, Wan promises to give it more screen time. The film is set to be released in four languages, including English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. Fan anticipations suggest that the upcoming film will surpass its predecessors in terms of thrill and fright. Beware of the jump scares!
