The Conjuring Spin Off to Bring Back Annabelle. Scare You. Release in October.

The Conjuring scared the crap out of me - with director James Wan serving up an old fashioned shock fest in the same year he went zany with Insidious 2. Here's what an early audience thought of The Conjuring.

A direct sequel is in the works, with Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson returning for more tales of the supernaturally inclined Warren's - based on the real-life paranormal investigators. But there's another flick planned that's coming sooner and might be even scarier.

Anyone who has seen The Conjuring or even just glimpsed a poster has to be aware of Annabelle - that's the really creepy doll who kicks of the movie with some possession antics. She's based on a real-life case the Warren's were involved with and the actual doll still sits in a glass case in their home, just like in the movie. Now, she's getting her own chance to shine.

Annabelle is the title of the movie, a spin off which is likely to focus on the earlier exploits of the doll. Or she gets out. Or she goes on a romantic cruise with Chucky. We actually don't know much about the plot right now. We do know its being directed by John R. Leonetti - a bit of a DTV helmer with the likes of Mortal Kombat: Annihilation and The Butterfly Effect 2 on his resume.

Expect this one to be a little on the cheap side but there's mileage in scary dolls and if its creepy the budget won't matter.

Annabelle has been set for an October 3rd release in the States. Expect it worldwide around the same time.
