Most toys don’t have the ability to scare the hell out of you, but when it comes to the demonic doll Annabelle and the possessed buddy Chucky from Child’s Play, they won’t stop “playing” with you until you’ve taken your last breath. And if you’re brave enough to bring them home, you can add them to your collectible shelf, thanks to Mezco Toyz and their new detailed collectibles for each terrifying toy.

Gary Dauberman has become a key figure in the horror world, and particularly the Conjuring Universe having written all three Annabelle films and The Nun, plus the two-part Stephen King adaptation It. He makes his directorial debut with the third Annabelle spin-off, Annabelle Comes Home.
Taking place immediately after the first Conjuring film, the new movie finds Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) bringing the cursed Annabelle doll to their private Artifact Room. While they’re out for the night, Mary Ellen (Madison Iseman) babysits for Judy Warren (McKenna Grace). Mary Ellen’s friend Daniela (Katie Sarife) sneaks into the Artifact Room and opens Annabelle’s case. Things don’t go well.
We just spoke with Dauberman a month ago for the DC Universe premiere of Swamp Thing. Just to show how quickly things can change in Hollywood, Swamp Thing was cancelled shortly thereafter with many stories emerging about why. Dauberman spoke about that, as well as his adaptation of Salem’s Lot. Annabelle Comes Home is in theaters this Friday.

At some point, the ghost-chasing Warrens might want to consider getting rid of all that spooky stuff they have locked away in the spare bedroom. As played memorably by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, the couple – based very loosely on real-life paranormal investigators – were first introduced to movie audiences with 2013’s superior haunted house flick The Conjuring. In that ghost adventure, we got our first glimpse of the Warrens’ artifacts room, loaded floor to ceiling with seemingly innocuous objects that are far more dangerous than they look. We didn’t realize it at the time, but we were being set-up.
This room, with its many terrifying tchotchkes, was the breeding ground for an entire cinematic universe. Each of the items in this room has a story to tell – and the so-called Conjuring Universe is thrilled to tell them to willing audiences. Which brings us to Annabelle Comes Home, the latest installment in the franchise that practically turns the artifacts room into a supporting character.
