All you budding filmmakers out there, especially those with a hair-raising bent, can now show off your cinematic skills by creating your own short horror film (two minutes only, so we do mean “short”!) and submitting it to the My Annabelle Creation contest, which officially launched this past Friday.
That’s right, James Wan himself and the other creators of The Conjuring Universe are looking for fans to share their creation of evil inspired by the series of films that began four years ago this month with the release of the blockbuster hit The Conjuring. Since then this incredibly popular theatrical franchise has seen the release of 2014’s Annabelle, 2016’s The Conjuring 2, and the upcoming Annabelle: Creation which begins haunting theaters on August 11.
The winning auteur will receive a trip to Los Angeles to meet with the director of Annabelle: Creation, David F. Sandberg, or an executive from New Line Cinema. The entry deadline is July 27, so time to start yelling, “Action!” Be sure to read all the rules and guidelines here.
In the meantime, if you’re in need of some horrifying inspiration, here’s the latest trailer for Annabelle: Creation.
