Annabelle Trailer Is Heeeere!

17 July 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Remember Annabelle from director James Wan’s spooky film, The Conjuring?

She’s back and creepy girl is starring in her own movie.

New Line Cinema’s 2013 film drew from the case files of married demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. Based on a true story, The Conjuring was the horrifying tale of how these world renowned paranormal investigators were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Confronted by a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens found themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.

The Conjuring starred Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson as the Warrens, and Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor as Roger and Carolyn Perron, residents of the house.

Check out the first trailer for Annabelle below.

Last summer, James Wan’s terrifying supernatural horror thriller opened to rave reviews from critics and had a $41.9 million opening weekend at the domestic box office, »
