It seems the horror community collectively dismissed Annabelle, as it was little more than a forgetful film with an eerie sequence or two sprinkled in the mix. But David F. Sandberg has taken control of the follow up, Annabelle 2, and not only will that produce a much more terrifying viewing experience, it’s going to truly kickstart this young franchise. We know, because Sandberg is bad ass filmmaker, and the first full length trailer for Annabelle 2 is extremely impressive.
In all honesty, this really does look awesome. It also looks like Sandberg will successfully turn this franchise around very quickly. That’s great news for Sandberg, and it just so happens to be great news for us horror fanatics as well.
You’re going to want to tune into this trailer, no doubt.
David F. Sandberg, who’s still riding the successful wave that Lights Out produced, will – as noted – be the man in the director’s chair.
Stephanie Sigman, Alicia Vela-Bailey, Miranda Otto and Anthony LaPaglia star in the film.
Expect Annabelle 2 to hit theaters on May 19, 2017.
Synopsis: 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.
