If you’re in the mood to be scared out of your mind go see Annabelle: Creation, which opens this Friday. Directed by David F. Sandberg, this movie tells the origin story of the Annabelle doll and how an evil spirit terrorizes a group of orphans who move into an old home.
On this week’s Extra Butter, you get a first-hand account from the cast on making the movie. Lulu Wilson and Talitha Bateman, who play the two main girls interacting with spirits, carry the film and help take horror to a new level. “My character is a very emotional character,” Wilson said. “She cries a lot and I wasn’t really used to that, so actually before we started filming I had to look up a bunch of videos about how to cry on cue. YouTube is very helpful.”
Last week, Xilla Valentine screened Annabelle: Creation as part of the Xilla Movie Party. Beauty expert The Notorious KIA, Love & Hip Hop: New York star Tara Wallace, and Money and Violence actress Sophia Body were some of the folks in the building. After the screening, High Quality Tours bused everyone to Slate NightClub for a night of spiritual readings and Hennessy V.S. cocktails. You can check out pics from the event below and be sure to watch Annabelle: Creation when it makes its way to theaters August 11.
