The film's synopsis is as follows:

"Sseveral 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."

The original Annabelle capitalized on the success of The Conjuring and explored the origins of that film's terrifying doll. Making the film feel even more scary was knowing the the Annabelle doll actually exists and lives in a museum of artifacts collected by the real Ed and Lorraine Warren.

Some audiences dismissed the original film as merely a cash grab to take advantage of the success of The Conjuring, but if you separated that connection from the film itself, Annabelle had quite a few effective scares.

Lights Out director David F. Sandberg will be helming the sequel based on a script from Gary Dauberman, who also wrote the first Annabelle. Peter Safran and James Wan will be producing this installment as well, with a cast of Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson, and Anthony LaPaglia.
