New Line has released the first trailer for “Annabelle,” its spinoff of last year’s hit horror title “The Conjuring.”

The film opens Oct. 3. The trailer offers a strange set-up — a husband presents his pregnant wife with a strange doll to apparently complete her collection.

Peter Safran and “The Conjuring” director James Wan are producing “Annabelle.” “The Conjuring” included a haunted doll named Annabelle as part of a collection of demonic objects assembled by paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who were portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga.

Annabelle Wallis (“Peaky Blinders”) and Ward Horton play the couple. John Leonetti, the cinematographer on “The Conjuring,” is directing from a script by Gary Dauberman.
