The Conjuring spin-off Annabelle set for October 3rd


If you have seen the incredibly creepy film The Conjuring, then you have certainly heard the name Annabelle before. At the very least, you have seen the incredibly creepy doll that always seems to appear at the wrong moment.

Well, it would seem as if we will be seeing a lot more of her pretty soon.

Annabelle, a spin-off of the popular film The Conjuring, will be hitting theaters on October 3rd.

At this particular juncture, there is really not a lot known about the creepy new film, especially in the story line department. To some degree, I guess this is a good thing, especially when it comes to a horror movie.

Now, while The Conjuring director James Wan will not be directing the spin-off, he will be involved in the production in some capacity as he is serving as a producer on the film.

It seems pretty interesting that it filled that particular spot as this is just about the time that Paranormal Activity 5 was supposed to be released in theaters before Paramount decided to move the project back to 2016.

The film will certainly have its fair share of competition at the Box Office as it will be going head to head with David Fincher’s latest project Gone Girl starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike.

The good news is, just one year after the release of Annabelle, we will finally get the second installment in The Conjuring series that we have been waiting for. The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist is scheduled for a October 23, 2015 release.

Annabelle is being directed by John R. Leonetti. While Leonetti has plenty of experience as a cinematographer, Annabelle is only his third feature length venture. He is probably most well-known for his film Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.

The script for the film is being penned by Gary Dauberman. Dauberman is no stranger to the horror genre, having written projects like Swamp Devil and Bloodmonkey.

The film stars 12 Year a Slave’s Alfre Woodard, Annabelle Wallis, Eric Laden, Tony Amendola, Brian Howe, Gabriel Bateman, and many more.

Annabelle is scheduled to be released on October 3, 2014.
