The origins of the possessed doll from The Conjuring emerge in this spine-chilling prequel from the director of horror hit Lights Out. Years after their little girl is killed in a tragic accident, doll-maker Samuel (Anthony LaPaglia) and his bed-ridden wife (Miranda Otto) open their home to girls from a closing Catholic orphanage. But while the older girls settle in, disabled Janice (Talitha Bateman) and her best friend Linda (Lulu Wilson) get into trouble when they enter the dead girl's bedroom... more trouble than they ever imagined. The truth crawls out of the woodwork in a spookily effective series of bone-snapping twists and diabolical turns.
