Annabelle: Creation releases this week, and to celebrate Warner Bros. sent over a small wooden box from the Mullins Toy Company filled with some pretty cool promotional items!
First up we have the box itself. It’s similar to the box that the Annabelle doll is placed in to be shipped away when its finished by Bee’s father, Samuel Mullins. You can see the real thing featured in the first trailer for the movie, but if you want a ton of good information on it, David F. Sandberg posted a commentary on his YouTube channel.
Inside we have three items. A bell keychain, a bundle of sage and a Saint Benedict Medal. Saint Benedict was known as “The Demon Chaser” and there’s a little prayer printed on the medal’s card back. It reads, “May the holy Cross be my light, Let not the dragon be my guide. Begone, Satan! Suggest not vain things to me. Evil is the cup thou offers; Drink thou thine own poison. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen. Saint Benedict, Protect Us.”
The bell is a reference to a character in the film, but I won’t spoil its use. The sage is a handy tool to use while chanting Saint Benedict’s prayer.
We really liked Annabelle: Creation [review] which releases this Friday. We said it “surpasses the first Annabelle movie in nearly every way.”
If you check it out, make sure you stick around for the post-credits scene!
