Annabelle dolls are scary because they’re little versions of us: David F. Sandberg


David F. Sandberg who’s Annabelle: Creation is releasing on Friday in India says that he falls asleep like a baby but he gets nightmares too. The director who is known for making horror movies said, “(I sleep) like a baby – but sometimes I do have nightmares. There’s a scene in this movie (Annabelle: Creation) that came from a dream I had. I woke up and immediately wrote it down so I wouldn’t forget it. And then I sent it to Gary Dauberman, our screenwriter, and asked like if we could put it in the movie.”

Annabelle: Creation is a follow up of the film Annabelle which was a 2014 release based on a haunted doll. It will be the fourth film in the series of the film The Conjuring. Starring Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson and Philippa Coulthard , the film will be released across pan India in four languages English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

On talking about Annabelle doll Sandberg said, “looking at the Annabelle doll, I think they’re (dolls) scary because they’re little versions of us. They look like us and you kind of expect them to walk around and start doing things.”

When asked about the challenging aspects of making Annabelle: Creation, he said, “One challenge came with the fact that we had this rule about never seeing Annabelle walking around. So, we threw a sheet over her and then you see the sheet move. That’s allowed in this universe. We also had a lot of fun dreaming up different ways of depicting Annabelle as the vessel of evil.”
