Before The Conjuring, there was Annabelle. And before the thriller hits theaters this Friday, the cast along with Warner Bros. executives turned out for the Los Angeles premiere. See photos from the event below.

John Ward (Ward Horton) found the perfect gift for his wife, Mia (Annabelle Wallis) – a beautiful, rare vintage doll. Unfortunately, Mia's delight with the doll, named Annabelle, doesn't last long before the terror begins.

Annabelle reunites the filmmakers behind 2013's hugely successful supernatural thriller The Conjuring. John R. Leonetti, who served as cinematographer on The Conjuring, directed Annabelle, and James Wan, director of the global hit, produced Annabelle with Peter Safran.

Annabelle opens in theaters this Friday, October 3.
