The Conjuring spin-off Annabelle has ruled the US box office this weekend, and the creepy horror feature is due for release here in the UK on Friday. Reviews have been average, but there is no denying the doll, a creation of James Wan, is extremely creepy to look at.
So, if Annabelle got into a fight with the original horror doll Chucky, who would win? Would you like to see that face off? I would, or better still, see them team up to raise hell.
Child’s Play creator Don Mancini is interested in seeing this happen too, and over the weekend he expressed interest when talking with USA Today:
“I am hoping that at some future point we have Annabelle and Chucky team up,” says Mancini. “I can see that (even) in 20 years from now.”
While Mancini currently works on writing a sequel to last years superb shocker, Curse of Chucky, the seventh film is the popular series, he is very excited about the possibility of Chucky and Annabelle sharing a film together. However, as always, legalities get in the way of having fun:
“We would be into it, the only problem is that we are in different studios. That would probably be years worth of red tape to work it out,” he said. “But if it all could be worked out, then yes, we’re very into it.”
Naturally, the big question is who would win? Mancini has a theory:
“From the trailer, Annabelle is playing her fighting cards close to her chest,” says Mancini. “From what I see, her fighting style is very subtle. I want to know if she has some secret moves.”
The idea of these two hellish dolls teaming up for a horror feature excites me a lot. I really hope they can make this a reality!
