‘Annabelle Comes Home’ Trailer Introduces New Evil Spirit ‘The Ferryman’ [WATCH]

*New Line Cinema has released the latest trailer for “Annabelle Comes Home,” which introduces a new ominous new spirit: a hooded figure with coins over his eyes known as the Ferryman.

As noted by Us Weekly, the Ferryman seems to be “inspired by the mythical Charon, who in Greek mythology ferried the souls of the deceased across the river Styx to the land of the dead,” the outlet writes. As the character Judy says in the trailer, people would “put coins over the eyes of the dead so he could take their souls.”

“Annabelle Comes Home” is the latest entry in the “Conjuring” universe-expanding the “Annabelle” franchise. The flick is being helmed by writer Gary Dauberman, who penned “The Nun,” which hit theaters back in September and earned $120 million at the domestic box office against an estimated $22 million production budget.

The original “Annabelle” was theatrically released in the U.S. on October 3, 2014 and was a box office success, grossing over $257 million against its $6.5 million production budget. A prequel, titled “Annabelle: Creation,” was released on August 11, 2017 and grossed over $306 million worldwide.

“We’re bringing the franchise back home after being so far away in Romania,” Dauberman told /Film last year ahead of production on the new Annabelle. “It’s set in the Warrens’ house. It’s what happens when Annabelle comes into the artifact room. Much like Swamp Thing, what happens when Annabelle comes into the artifact room and how she affects her environment.”

“Annabelle Comes Home” will mark Dauberman’s directorial debut, and stars Vera Farming, Patrick Wilson, McKenna Grace, Emily Brobst, and Madison Iseman.

In Dauberman’s horror sequel, the Warrens place Annabelle in their room of haunted artifacts, but she is unleashed by a friend of Judy’s babysitter who recently lost her father.

“Daniela will do whatever she can to find out whether or not there is an afterlife,” says Dauberman. “Annabelle’s presence causes all these other things to come to life. Annabelle is the orchestrator of the madness.”

The film hits theaters June 26. Watch the trailer above.
