Annabelle came home when Annabelle Comes Home hit theaters nationwide last week–and it’s definitely one of the most thrilling chapters is The Conjuring Universe to date. Of course, The Conjuring can be a difficult franchise to wrap one’s head around, as it contains more prequels than progressive installments.
First came The Conjuring in 2013, followed by the series first spinoff, the prequel Annabelle in 2014. The Conjuring 2 came out in 2016 with events transpiring after the first Conjuring movie. Annabelle: Creation arrived in 2017; that film went even farther into reverse, making it a prequel to a prequel. Confused yet?
The Nun sent us even further back in time in 2018 while the red-headed stepchild of the franchise, The Curse of La Llorona propelled us back into the 1970s in 2019. Anyone else suffering a case of whiplash?
Then here comes Annabelle Comes Home, a film that takes place between The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 (I think). With The Conjuring 3 currently in the works, putting the events of all these films into chronological order would take a film critic with a math degree.
Which is why we’re taking out hats off to the folks at GameSpot Universe. In the video embedded at the top of the article, they did just that, putting the entire Conjuring Universe into chronological order. Give it a spin if you’re hoping to end any enduring confusion.
