Annabelle Wallis News
A prequel to 2013's fact-based horror hit The Conjuring, Annabelle tells the "origin" of that movie's possessed doll. Culling elements from Rosemary's Baby, The Conjuring, and Insidious, Annabelle isn't a Chucky-style killer doll movie but rather the umpteenth movie in recent memory about demonic possession. The aptly named Annabelle Wallis stars as (no, not Annabelle) Mia, a possible nod to Rosemary's Baby star Mia Farrow. Like Rosemary, Mia spends most of the movie pregnant and dealing with supernatural forces at play in her apartment building.
She terrified you in “The Conjuring,” but this is where it all began for Annabelle.
