With 2019 being the year of the creepy dolls due to the theatrical releases of Annabelle Comes Home and Child's Play, writer/director Craig Rees is looking to add his own unique style of scares to the sub-genre with his new horror movie Annabellum: The Curse of Salem. With the film out now on VOD in the US and UK, we've been provided with a new poster that gives Daily Dead readers an up-close look at a doll that holds an ancient and deadly curse.

All manner of malevolent horrors are unleashed when a Salem witch's vengeful curse is unleashed in Annabellum: The Curse of Salem. You can view the creepy poster and previously released trailer below, and to learn more about Annabellum: The Curse of Salem, visit:
