The creepiest doll from modern horror has returned. Annabelle: Creation, the sequel to the Conjuring spinoff, gets a hair-raising teaser and poster ahead of Saturday’s official trailer debut.

David F. Sandberg, whose Lights Out film was produced by The Conjuring director James Wan, directs the Annabelle sequel. The footage sees the creation of the titular doll before it eventually becomes a conduit for demonic forces. The story focuses on a dollmaker and his wife, who take in a nun and several girls several years after the death of their own child. Soon they become targets of the possessed Annabelle doll.

Since horror fans have seen the doll appear in other Conjuring films, we can safely say its killing streak will have a long shelf-life after this. “You hide. She seeks,” the tagline reads.

Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson, Philippa Anne Coulthard, Grace Fulton, Lou Lou Safran, Samara Lee, Tayler Buck, Anthony LaPaglia, and Miranda Otto round out the cast. Wan returns as a producer on Annabelle: Creation alongside Peter Safran.

In addition to the promo for Saturday’s trailer, Warner Bros. released the new poster direct from WonderCon. Check out Annabelle creeping out of her coffin-like box below.
