Mezco Toyz announces that they have acquired the license to THE CONJURING, 2013′s surprise hit horror film. The movie centered on a paranormal investigation team, the Warrens who come to the assistance of a family experiencing increasingly disturbing events in their farmhouse.
Some of the creepiest moments of that film were with Annabelle, a possessed doll. Here is some more information on the Mezco Toyz plans:
Horror fans first entered the world of the paranormal investigation team the Warrens in 2013 with THE CONJURING. Terrified theatergoers couldn’t get enough of the twisted tale, helping it become one of the highest grossing horror films of all times according to Forbes magazine.
First introduced in THE CONJURING, the upcoming ANNABELLE tells a tail filled with malevolent entities and killer cultists.
Mezco Toyz is no stranger to the world of the bizarre, the shapeless form in the shadows, and the whisper in the dark…so clearly there is no better choice for a producer of THE CONJURING and ANNABELLE merchandise.
Mezco’s award winning design team has already begun creating an Annabelle version of their world record holding Living Dead Dolls, and has many more scares tucked away for the future.
Annabelle, the doll so evil even the Warrens were afraid of her, will be returning to the big screen in ANNABELLE, a film dedicated to her terrifying origin.
“She terrified you in “The Conjuring,” but this is where it all began for Annabelle.
Capable of unspeakable evil, the actual doll exists locked up in an occult museum in Connecticut—visited only by a priest who blesses her twice a month.
New Line Cinema’s supernatural thriller “Annabelle” begins before the evil was unleashed.
John Form has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia—a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn’t last long.
On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now…Annabelle.”
Look for these collectibles to head to stores in late 2014.
ANNABELLE will be in theaters October 3rd, and THE CONJURING 2 is set to hit theaters October 23rd, 2015.
