How Faith Played a Pivotal Role in This Horror Movie Franchise

How Faith Played a Pivotal Role in This Horror Movie Franchise

By Jessilyn Lancaster, Managing Editor

A demonic doll in a haunted house may not smack of faith-based content, but the stars of ANNABELLE COMES HOME say spirituality is the driving force behind the movie. 

“The faith element not only cannot be ignored, it defined [the Warren family],” actor Patrick Wilson tells Movieguide®.

Wilson plays Ed Warren in the sequel to ANNABELLE and ANNABELLE: CREATION. 

“[The Warrens’] Catholic faith was something super important to them. So, that’s been important for us to, regardless of our own experiences of religion growing up. You don’t see that in a lot of films. We always approach the [movie material], whether it’s an exorcism or a prayer with the same respect that I that I would growing up reading the Bible. 

“I think you can’t run from that; just like you can’t run from the evil that we embrace in these movies. You also can’t run from the positive spiritual side. I think when faith-based groups respond to the movies, and we’re not apologizing for it. It’s nice to see,” Wilson says.
