One of the interesting things about this job is that occasionally I get random packages in the mail. After I let my dog Artemis sniff them — she’s not a bomb-sniffing dog, but I figure it’s worth a try — I open them up to find a variety of interesting things. Yesterday a small package arrived and I opened it up to find a small, wooden box from the Mullins Toy Company and a note about the movie Annabelle: Creation.
Inside of the box were three items. The first item was a sachet of sage, which the note says: Smudge your space to cleanse your surroundings and protect yourself from malevolent spirits.
Second was a small black bell keychain and the note reads: Ring whenever you enter your home, the chime will ward off any devils within.
And third was a medallion which the note explains: This ‘demon chaser’ St. Benedict medal comes with a prayer – say it quickly when evil spirits are near.
Annabelle: Creation takes audiences through the infamous dolls very beginning — from her first home in a little girl’s room to her first possession of a little girl’s soul. It seems that New Line Cinema, Warner Bros and Mullins Toys are concerned for my soul. I appreciate that greatly, for as they say: Evil can strike anytime, anywhere…Don’t be caught unprepared.
Annabelle: Creation opens August 11th.
