Many people loved the Conjuring when it was released, including myself. It was a dark, creepy and engaging.
Set in 1971, The Conjuring focuses on the (real life) married paranormal researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren, who lecture at colleges across the US on all the interesting cases they come across. Just as they’re thinking of retirement cue the Perron family; parents Roger and Carolyn are scared for their lives and the lives of their 5 daughters claiming there is something evil in their now Rhode Island home. It doesn’t take long for the Warrens to discover that the Perron’s are being tormented by something supernatural.
It was no surprise when a sequel was announced to be in the works, but today, schmoesknow has reported that a prequel, centred on the terrifying doll “Annabelle“ will also start filming later next year with Conjuring’s Director of Photography John R. Leonetti taking the directors chair.
We caught the end of Annabelle’s story in the Conjuring and the question becomes can a stand-alone film keep that intrigue and fear factor?
Are you excited about the Annabelle spin off? Conjuring 2? Or are you worried the cow will be milked too much? Comment below.
