12 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, where they soon become the target of the dollmaker's possessed creation, Annabelle.
From aboard the IMDboat at San Diego Comic-Con the cast of Annabelle: Creation introduce an exclusive clip from the film and talk about the terrors of shooting a horror film.
The woman who played the adult Annabelle Higgins is usually a stunt woman and has been a stunt for Vera Farmiga in the other Conjuring films. She also played the adult Annabelle Higgins in the first Annabelle film.
Who cares? Run!
The film suggests at the end that Linda, the blonde protagonist, later became Annabelle Higgins, the cultist killer who murdered her parents in the original Annabelle and called on a demon to possess the Annabelle doll after killing herself. This is an odd and clumsy route for the story to take for several reasons. In the original Annabelle film, it was implied that Annabelle was the Higgins' daughter her entire life. She was even shown as a very small girl at one point in a family picture, much younger than Linda was by the time the Higgins supposedly adopted her in this film. Moreover if Linda/Annabelle had lived from preteen years to young womanhood possessed by a demon, there would have been ample signs of demonic possession years before she disappeared for a year to join first the hippies, then a Satanic cult. She most likely would have killed way before then too. The idea that a demon possessed a Christian child for likely more than a decade, showed no evidence of its existence, and did all this just so it could kill two people at the end of its possession is extremely far-fetched.
Right after the end credits, there is a clip inside a dimly lit hall in Romania. You will notice that the candles will go out one by one and then the outline of the "Demon Nun" will appear.
