The latest two projects are freaky doll sequel ‘Annabelle 2’ and the remake of Stephen King’s coulrophobic waking nightmare ‘It’, eschewing the really rather lame PG-13 indictment that has dogged so many so-called horror movies in recent years. ‘It’, which is being made by Andrés Muschietti, who made the Spanish supernatural horror ‘Mama’, will land in September. The ‘Conjuring’ spin-off ‘Annabelle 2’, meanwhile, helmed by ‘Lights Out’ director David F.
