Sorry to burst your bubble, but Annabelle is back to haunt your dreams forever.
The creepy doll that tainted your life in 2014 has made a comeback in the supernatural horror film Annabelle: Creation, directed by David F. Sandberg.
The movie, which premiered Aug. 11 in theaters nationwide, is a prequel to the 2014 flick and the fourth installment in The Conjuring film series.
This is what the movie is about, according to IMDB. [SPOILER ALERT] "Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a doll maker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the doll maker's possessed creation, Annabelle."
VIX sat down with starring actress Stephanie Sigman, who portrays nun and caretaker Sister Charlotte, and she revealed one of the creepiest things that actually happened on set. Check it out below:
VIX: How did you nab the role on Annabelle: Creation?
STEPHANIE: I auditioned for it. I got the script and they were looking for an older lady to play the nun and I thought it was interesting for me to audition for it and I don't know that they saw, but they liked it. I felt that this story was so much more than what my expectations for a horror movie. It's so rounded and I love that the cast was six girls, there's so much girl power in the movie. I was doing my research for religion, I was reading the Bible, talking to people who believed in miracles, believe in God, and putting that in my character.
VIX: Do you have any similarities with Sister Charlotte?
STEPHANIE: Yes. I actually have a lot. She's a pretty happy person but she also has quite a dark past. It's actually a pretty interesting story. I feel like I discovered so many things by playing this character. I discovered that I'm not so bad with kids. It's interesting how when you are responsible for kids, you have to find a balance in being firm and being caring and loving and I think that's one of the most interesting things about my character.
VIX: What creepy anecdote happened to you while filming the movie?
STEPHANIE: Just being on set was creepy. Having to touch and work with the Annabelle doll was creepy. You don't do that every day. There's a different vibe on set, it's a darker world you're getting into and I would say it's a different energy. Nothing really weird happened, but we had the doll and the set blessed by the priest, so that helped a lot.
VIX: What was your process to prepare for this role?
STEPHANIE: I was asking people who lived a life based on religion and beliefs if they believe in this. If this happened to them, how would they fight the spirit or what would they do? I got some pretty cool answers from people who were certain and have faith in what they believe. I admire that a lot.
VIX: Did you ever collect dolls as a kid and did they ever freak you out?
STEPHANIE: Dolls were not my favorite things growing up. It's so weird owning a toy that looks like a child because of the size. They're too big to be a doll, but they're not human. I liked Barbies more. There was always something so weird about dolls for me. Their faces and expressions always change in different lighting too.
