In a Facebook post spotted by IGN, Mezco Toys announced it will soon market a version of Annabelle, the terrifying doll introduced in the horror movie and set to return in the sequel.
Released in 2013, "The Conjuring" focused on the Warrens, a husband-and-wife paranormal detective team, and their attempt to help a family terrorized by a demon. The prequel "Annabelle," which is due in theaters on October 3, focuses on the origin story of the eponymous doll.
Naturally the toy, which Mezco Toys will launch in late 2014, isn't the sort of rosy-cheeked baby doll that might make you nostalgic for playing house. It's more likely to make you want to sleep with the lights on, or else lock the doll in a closet. For anyone considering buying the doll for their kids, the trailer for "Annabelle" might help make up your mind: youtu.be/AA2pFq9pFTA
The toy company, which also markets "Batman" and "Breaking Bad" dolls, has also shown its ability to create more frightening models, including its "Chucky" and "Living Dead" dolls.
