If The Creepy Doll From 'The Conjuring' Can Get A Movie, Why Can't These 4 Terrifying Characters Get The Same Deal?

By Jodi Clager | Seriously Random Lists | November 11, 2013 | Comments ()


The Conjuring was such a box office success that New Line/Warner Bros have greenlit a sequel and are attempting to set up a franchise of Ed and Lorraine Warren’s case files. One of the other cash grabs is a prequel featuring Annabelle, the creepy doll that frames the story in The Conjuring. Sure the doll is scary and I would sh*t my pants if I had a doll that did what Annabelle did in the beginning of that movie. But can she carry an entire movie? If she can, why can’t these other frightening fellows get some sweet Hollywood money?

    I'm assuming that Melanie Griffith will be one of the bird's new victims. She was literally born to play that role.

    What, no love for Talky Tina? She killed the shit out of Telly Savalas!

    Alright, there appears to be an event happening.

    Science will come up with some reason to put in the books, but in the end it'll be just a theory

    What about these horrifying creatures:

  • Ben

    I feel bad making fun of a child, but that first pic all I can think of is this.

  • e jerry powell

    That looks like an outtake from "Blue Planet." David Attenborough was too creeped out to put that in the final cut.

  • Robert

    I'm not on the cynicism train. I left The Conjuring saying they should have just made the Annabelle film. It's a much more interesting introduction to the Warrens, including skepticism surrounding their investigations. Tacking Annabelle on as a prologue and a MacGuffin later on in the film was a waste of perfectly good horror film source material.

    THE OUIJA BOARD!! I like how insidious its thoughts on fire are. It's adorable.

    Dead Silence is probably the closest to a Billy (saw doll) movie. I assumed that was the original intention.
