Annabelle: Creation Trailer Shows off the Scariest Doll Since Chucky

Warner Bros has had a hot hand with horror since 2013’s The Conjuring (produced by New Line Cinema and directed by the great James Wan) was a commercial and critical success. They followed that film with 2014’s Annabelle, another hit (and a prequel to The Conjuring), then The Conjuring 2, and now they’ve released the second trailer for the fourth film in their unholy Conjuring universe, Annabelle: Creation

The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 director James Wan returns to produce this origin story about the demonic doll that has been terrifying audiences for years now. What makes Annabelle: Creation even more of a likely scare-fest is its directed by David F. Sandberg, the man behind the devishly simple and utterly terrifying Lights Out. Annebelle: Creation focuses on a dollmaker and his wife who lose their own child, and perhaps in an effort to staunch their grief, take a nun and a group of orphaned girls into their home. Then Annabelle makes their lives a living hell.  But soon the evil force of the Annabelle doll does what it does best: unleashes terror on anyone in its path.

The film stars Talitha Bateman, Stephanie Sigman, Philippa Anne Coulthard, Lulu Wilson, Lou Lou Safran, Grace Fulton, Tayler Buck, Samara Lee and Anthony Lapaglia.

Annabelle: Creation premieres on August 11.
