What can you say about a film that’s a blatant rip-off of both the original The Conjuring and the Annabelle spinoffs? No much—except that that trailer for Conjuring the Witch’s Doll (directed by Lawrence Fowler) looks unintentionally hilarious! In fact, this unabashed cash-grab looks so bad it’s good; quickly conceived, poorly acted, and featuring a doll that’s more laughable that scary, it’s hard to believe this film actually got produced. Still, I’ve watched the trailer half a dozen times, because it’s just so ridiculous!
Official Synopsis: Ambitious young true crime writer Adeline Gray travels to a remote English village to unravel the mystery behind a family’s murder. While investigating the prime suspect’s now derelict ‘Manor in the woods’, she notices a creepy life-size Victorian doll is following her from room-to-room. After a series of terrifying and inexplicable events, she believes the doll is carrying a hateful spirit wanting to be left alone. Desperate for a career-defining story, Adeline’s persistent search for answers soon puts her too at the mercy of the Witch’s Doll.
