‘Annabelle 2’ Exists and Here’s a Trailer to Prove It

You know what nobody asked for? A sequel to Annabelle, itself a spinoff of The Conjuring, which was basically a horrible movie from top to bottom. Alas, here we are in 2016 Hollywood, where head-scratching sequels are the modus operandi for some damn reason, and here is the trailer for Annabelle 2:

And here’s the synopsis:

Several 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, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.

If there is anything positive to take from this movie even existing, it’s the fact that Lights Out director David F. Sandberg is behind the camera. He’s shown his ability to craft a pretty clever horror film already this year, but wouldn’t his talents be better served in another original idea? This has been a banner year for horror, and yet here we are again rehashing something nobody wanted in the first place.

That teaser was a minute and five seconds, and I am fairly certain I will only see a minute and five seconds of Annabelle 2 for the rest of my life. There must be a few people out there who are eagerly anticipating another entry into this franchise, so if you find one – or you are one – let me know.
