Annabelle film trilogy
The Annabelle film trilogy is a series of American supernatural horror films based on the possessed doll of the same name, which is featured in The Conjuring Universe. The films are directed by John R. Leonetti, David F. Sandberg, and Gary Dauberman, who also wrote the scripts for all three films.
Annabelle (2014): A prequel to The Conjuring, the film follows a doll-maker and his wife who take in a young couple after their home is invaded by satanic cultists. The doll, Annabelle, is possessed by the spirit of a young girl, and begins to terrorize the couple.
Annabelle: Creation (2017): A prequel to Annabelle, the film tells the story of the doll’s origins and how it came to be possessed. The film is set in 1943 and follows a dollmaker and his wife who take in several girls from a shuttered orphanage. The doll, Annabelle, is given to one of the girls, who is soon possessed by the spirit of a young girl who was murdered in the house.
Annabelle Comes Home (2019): The third film in the series, Annabelle Comes Home follows the Warrens as they lock Annabelle away in their artifacts room. However, Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, and they begin to terrorize the Warrens’ daughter Judy and her friends.
The Annabelle films have been met with mixed reviews from critics, but have been commercially successful, grossing over $728 million worldwide against a combined budget of $88 million. The films have also been praised for their scares and atmosphere.
