Annabelle: Creation is the latest in the ever-growing Conjuring universe, and it aims to tell you everything you ever wanted to know about how that damn doll went from merely creepy to pure evil.

The Conjuring universe will soon be adding a demonic nun and a Crooked Man to its firmament—but first, we’ll be getting more backstory on cinema’s scariest doll since Chucky.

James Wan’s The Conjuring was huge hit, bringing forth The Conjuring 2 and spin-off Annabelle—as well as spin-off sequel Annabelle: Creation (due in August) and Conjuring 2 spin-off The Nun (due in 2018). And now, yet another movie inspired by the series is on the way.

Horror movie Annabelle is entirely about the possessed (real-life) doll that was featured in The Conjuring.
