Creation scene David F. Sandberg regrets having filmed


Several high-profile filmmakers have expressed regret about filming specific scenes over the years, and David F. Sandberg counts himself among them. In a Reddit discussion on “Annabelle: Creation” (via ScreenRant), the director confessed to the scene involving the character of Janice (Talitha Bateman) and a demonic spirit that took control of Bee’s ghost – specifically the “Your soul!” line (through Youtube) – comes too close to a parody of the demons in director Sam Raimi’s “Evil Dead” saga.

“Yeah, I never quite nailed that one, and I think ‘I’ll swallow your soul’ every time I see it,” Sandberg said in the Reddit chat. “If I could do it again, I’d make the makeup scarier and not make her say anything. Or at least whisper the line instead of [a] full-fledged demon voice. We tried so many variations of this voice during the post. “Maybe if we make the voice really overwhelming it might take the cheese away?” Nope.”

Of course, “Annabelle: Creation” isn’t the first horror film (directly or indirectly) to draw inspiration from one of Raimi’s “Evil Dead” films. Raimi himself, in fact, brought some of his “Evil Dead 2” sensibilities to the hit “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” explaining why Marvel’s Kevin Feige wanted to do it.

“When Kevin first announced the movie, he said it would be ‘Marvel’s first foray into the horror genre,’ and it is,” Raimi told Looper in an exclusive interview. . “There are demons, and Doctor Strange has to fight terrifying creatures, and Wanda also has to deal with scary stuff. That’s the aspect of the horror movie that we were trying to bring to it.” Granted, there’s no mention in the film, however, of demons saying they’re going to swallow anyone’s soul.
