The Annabelle series, which is a spin-off of The Conjuring, can be a little complicated in it’s timeline. The first movie is a prequel to Conjuring, but the “sequel,” Annabelle: Creation is a prequel to THAT one. Throw in The Nun, which is Conjuring 2 spin-off (though she makes an appearance in Creation), and things get even more wonky.
That leaves Annabelle Comes Home, the third in the series which will bring it back to where it all started; with the Warrens. This brings the timeline back together, while also managing to tie-in The Conjuring universe together a bit better, all while serving as a stark reminder that Holy blessing mean absolutely nothing unless you have strong locks on your doors…
So this serves not only as an Annabelle sequel, but something of a Conjuring sequel as well (notice the sinister looking music box from the first Conjuring on the shelves). While I’m a big weenie when it comes to horror movies, The Conjuring films have intrigued me for the lore they bring together. As such, I’m excited to see how this film looks to bring a majority of that lore together into a single film where EVERYTHING goes crazy in the Warren’s home.
Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her “safely” behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest’s holy blessing. But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new target—the Warrens’ ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.
Annabelle Comes Home hits theaters on June 28, 2019.
