Halloween is right around the corner, which means it's horror movie season! And what's more frightening and gripping than watching another creepy doll wreak havoc upon innocent people?
The R-rated Annabelle, a The Conjuring prequel and spinoff, hits theaters on Friday, Oct. 3. In the new movie, the lives of John, played by Ward Horton, his wife Mia, played by Annabelle Wallis, and their baby are terrorized by the vintage, pig-tailed doll, seen in the first film. The creepy toy, is, of course, possessed and sparks terrifying, supernatural events...namely the arrival of members of a satanic cult to their home. There's also a particularly shocking scene that features Mia when she's pregnant.
Horton is also known for his role as Dean Trayger on The Young and the Restless and also played a broker in the 2013 film The Wolf of Wall Street. Wallis, a British actress, played Jane Seymour on The Tudors and Bridget on the short-lived series Pan Am and had a small role in X-Men: First Class.
Annabelle was directed by John R. Leonetti and also stars Alfre Woodard, known for roles in movies such as Star Trek: First Contact and 12 Years a Slave and shows such as Desperate Housewives and True Blood, Kerry O'Malley, who plays bartender Kate on Showtime's Shameless and Tony Amendola, who plays Geppetto on Once Upon a Time.
