The track record for the franchise is strong - "Annabelle" ($37.1 million); "The Conjuring" ($41.9 million); and "The Conjuring 2" ($40.4 million). However, the girls are soon terrorized by the demon doll containing the soul of the dollmaker's lost daughter. It's the sequel that no one asked for and still got, with many critics giving it negative reviews (it now has an 11% on Rotten Tomatoes). "And it's exciting to see how broadly audiences enjoyed it", he said, adding, "I think our marketing team did a fabulous job".
