12 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, where they soon become the target of the dollmaker's possessed creation, Annabelle.
A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
The manufacturer of dolls Samuel Mullins is a happy family man with his wife Esther and their daughter Bee, who dies after being hit by a car. Twelve years later, Samuel and his wife, Esther, welcomes a nun and six orphaned girls to his home. He tells that only a locked room (that belonged to Bee) and Esther's room would be off limits for the girls. The crippled girl, Janice, manages to sneak in Bee's room during the night and finds a doll locked inside a closet. After she plays in the room, she is haunted by an evil force. What has Janice unleashed in Bee's room?Written by

David F. Sandberg was initially reluctant to direct the film, due to his general dislike of horror sequels. He changed his mind when it was clear he would be making a standalone prequel, with no major obligations to connect it to the larger franchise beyond a few brief references to the other films.

When Janice is pushed by some sort of demon nun into the barn, she screams loudly but the other girls don't seem to hear it. However, when she screams inside the barn, they suddenly hear it. See more »
Just AWFUL. I went to this picture a fan of horror movies and really wanting to be scared, on the edge of my seat, scream, and do all of the things one does when watching a well put together scary movie. This was not one of those. It was littered with cliche's, to an embarrassing degree. I didn't jump once. The story was weak. The writing was laughable. Was this even a horror film?I want my money back!
