First teaser trailer for the horror spin-off

Scare master James Wan (Saw, Insidious) is bringing back the creepy doll from The Conjuring for her own knee-trembling spin-off. Not much of a surprise when you consider Wan’s twitter handle is creepypuppet.

From the first teaser trailer we can glean Annabelle is a prequel to The Conjuring with the story following the freaky doll before she came to reside at the Warren’s museum of horrors. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson played paranormal investigators helping a family through a dark episode in last summer’s 70s set shocker but there doesn’t appear to be any help at hand for the young couple in Annabelle who bring the scary doll into their home and leave it in their baby’s room. Cue the carnage. People in horror movies never learn…

Directed by Insidious and The Conjuring cinematographer John Leonetti, Annabelle will be haunting a multiplex near you from October 10th.
