    they were filming today at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary on Santa Monica Blvd. Driving home tonight, the productions signs were all over the place to guide cast and crew. Talk about show itself in the wide open without even a codename. They all clearly said “ANNABELLE”

    Pretty happy The Conjuring’s DP is directing this. I loved the look of that film.
