The Conjuring Universe is an American media franchise and shared universe centered on a series of supernatural horror films.
Where it all started - The Nun (1952)
It all starts in 1952 ( as shown in The Nun movie released in 2018), when a church father and sister, Irene go to investigate the death of a Nun in Romania.
That’s where they find out that there is an evil spirit in the church which the other nuns are trying to stop from entering into the world. In the movie, it was shown that the Church was built by a guy who was more interested in demonic worship and tried to unleash a demon named Valak into the real world.
But he was stopped by the church knights at that time. Now they get to know that this was the demon that the Nuns are trying to stop. At the end of the movie, they successfully manage to condemn the demon back to hell, but not before the demon left a scar on Frenchie( an accompanist of the church father and the Nun).
The movie ended, why is this scar important then?
Because this was shown in the First Conjuring Movie, as a middle-aged man called Maurice giving Lorraine Warren a nightmare which made her stay in her room for 8 days without food and water. This was her first contact with Valak. Let’s top the Valak story for now and go back in time for 9 years.
The Origin of Annabelle - 1943
In 1943 ( as shown in the movie Annabelle Creation), the baby girl of Mullin’s Family named Annabelle dies in a terrible car accident that leaves their family shaken.
They try out many demonic activities with her doll in the hope to bring back their daughter, this was revealed at the end of the movie.
12 years later, a group of orphans with a church sister comes to stay in Mullin's house, where an orphan releases the demon from the doll that possesses the girl and haunts the family and the orphans for the rest of the movie.
The orphan kills the Mullin’s Family and escapes from the house. At the end of the movie, it was shown that the orphan now goes by the name of Annabelle and was getting adopted by a family.
The Rise of Annabelle - 1967
Now fast forward some 12 years later, in the year 1967, in the starting of the movie Annabelle, a grown-up girl was shown murdering her entire adopted family supposedly for showing her faith in a demonic cult. This girl was Annabelle. The girl kills herself with a doll in her hand, to which the demon has shifted to now.
This doll belongs to John and Mia who are the main protagonists for this movie, they live next door to the family Annabelle murdered. The doll torments the family and tells the mother, Mia to sacrifice herself to keep their baby alive.
In the end, their friend Evelyn sacrifices herself to save the family. But Noo, they are not going to end it here. In the after-credits, the doll was shown in a toy store where an old woman is buying it for her daughter, who works as a Nurse. Seriously, people are still buying this freaky doll with blood on it.
The First Conjuring Movie - 1971
4 Years from there, in 1971, at the start of the Conjuring Movie, the Nurse-Family was shown giving away that toy to the Warren’s Family, because they thought it was possessed. This was also chronologically the first appearance of the Warrens in the series. A woman named Carolyn Perren was shown attending the lectures of The Warrens. The woman's family just now moved to a farmhouse and now they are being tormented by a ghost.
The Warren Family finds out that the house was built on the land of Bethsheba who killed herself and their children for demonic activities. But too late, it already possessed the mother of the family and now it’s trying to kill her children. As always, in the end, the Warrens somehow come and rescue them at the perfect time.
An Extra Movie in the Timeline - 1972
Then comes an extra movie in the timeline, named Annabelle Comes Home, which is supposedly happening in the year 1972, one year after the Conjuring Incident.
The Warren Family leave their daughter with a girl and her friend who somehow manages to wake up all the evil spirits in the house, at the end somehow everyone makes it out alive. I don’t know if this movie will be related to any upcoming movies or they just did this for fun.
The Return of The Valak
Let’s get back to our hero demon, the Valak, the demon figure which was first seen in 1951, gives a re-entry in the second Conjuring movie. The Hodgson family was being haunted by an old man spirit in their house, who supposedly killed himself in his chair.
They believed that her daughter Janet was possessed by the old man’s spirit. But, after several investigations, Warren’s Family decides that it’s just a hoax, but just when they were boarding the train they realize that the old man spirit was just a Pawn and Valak is behind all of those incidents. They return to the home at the right time and Lorren manages to condemn the demon back to hell and also save her husband at the right time. I liked that scene.
That’s the summary of everything that happened in the conjuring series till now. Now let’s all sit back and wait for the next movie so that another demon can haunt another family. Until then, thanks for reading through the article.
