I have to be blunt and admit that I was not a fan of ANNABELLE in any way shape or form (even if came as a spirt of a sadistic serial killer). My hope was that the film would have been in essence the haunting of a possessed doll and portrayed like it was in THE CONJURING. I left the theatre depressed, so much that I actually was Annabelle for Halloween that year. Yea. that was interesting.
The description of the sequel is as follows:
Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
David Sandberg is a terrific storyteller and that branches out to the unexpected and unknown, so I have high hopes for this film.
ANNABELLE 2 will be released in theaters on May 19, 2017. While at the premiere of Lights Out this past July, Sandberg had mentioned that he was wrapping up on filming. I am pretty stoked to see what the big guy comes up with.

And, if you are so much inclined, here is my costume from last year. Dolls rock.
