‘Annabelle Comes Home’ Trailer Brings The Ferryman Into ‘The Conjuring’ Universe

The trailer for Annabelle Comes Home brings a new character, The Ferryman, into the ever expanding The Conjuring universe. After a person dies, their soul isn’t going to get across the river to the land of death without him, the coins over the deceased eyes paying his fare. The Ferryman has also provided a few of the jump scares that have made the films in James Wan’s horror dynasty memorable. This dynasty also includes The Warrens, who not only give us a Sam Loomis/Van Helsing archetype, but the artifacts from the cases they worked on also channel a Friday the 13th The Series motif, all with a dark well of plot and characters than fans are hoping for. Other possible characters, in addition to The Ferryman, could also be an evil Samurai, a demonic monkey, a werewolf, and The Bride.

Annabelle Comes Home picks up with the Warrens bringing her back to the famed Artifacts Room where she can’t harm anyone else. However, she acts as kind of an evil supercharger for the room and awakens everything else unspeakable in there.

According to Director Gary Dauberman:

It really picks up with the Warrens bringing Annabelle to the place where it can really no longer wreak havoc, which is their artifact room. But, of course, it turns out she can also wreak havoc there.”

James Wan added:

“It’s basically Night at the Museum With Annabelle.”

Of course, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will return in their now iconic roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren. McKenna Grace (The Haunting Of Hill House TV series) also stars as The Warrens’ daughter, Judy. Additional cast includes Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle 2017), Emily Brobst (Godzilla 2014), and Samara Lee (Foxcatcher 2014). Release date for Annabelle Comes Home is June 26.

About Kevin Scott

Parents who were not film savvy and completely unprepared for choosing child appropriate viewing material were the catalyst that fueled my lifelong love affair with horror, exploitation, blaxploitation, low budget action, and pretty much anything that had to be turned off when my grandparents visited. I turned out okay for the most part, so how bad could all these films actually be?
