Twelve years after the tragic death of their little girl, a doll-maker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, where they become the target of the doll-maker'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.
A subplot had sister Charlotte (Stephanie Sigman) confessing to Esther Mullins (Miranda Otto) that she had once given birth to a son. She had given him up for adoption, but later found out that the boy had drowned at the age of seven, when he got trapped beneath the ice of a frozen lake. Later, Charlotte hears strange noises in bed, and when she holds a light under it, she sees a shadow on the wall of the boy, desperately clawing at the ice above him. The scenes were filmed but ultimately deemed unnecessary for the film.
Forgive me, Father, for I am about to sin.
There is no police investigation of the scene of Samuel Mullins' death after Sister Charlotte finds his dead body, for some strange reason.
There's a mid-credits scene the Annabelle doll is sitting in a chair and slightly moves her head.
