plot

John Form has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia - a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn't last long. On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all ...more

Verdict

“Annabelle has no spooky surprises, with predictable sequences it makes up for a one time watch. Scary at places, but fails to live up to the level of The Conjuring.”

Annabelle is the latest entrant in The Conjuring movie universe. While not exactly a prequel, it happens some years prior to the events of the conjuring, and features one of demons from it, i.e Annabelle. It runs on a tried and tested formula, but fans of the series will be able to predict the set pieces, which is not a good thing for a horror movie.

 

John and Mia are a young couple expecting their first child together. As a gift, John bought Mia an antique doll, one which she’d been wanting for ages. Things go wrong almost immediately, though. Their neighbours are murdered in brutal fashion by their own daughter and her boyfriend, who then attempt to murder Mia and her unborn child. The police intervene just in time, though and manage to kill both of them. However, before dying, the daughter, named Annabelle, locks herself in a room with the doll and performs some sort of ritual. Putting this ordeal behind them, John and Mia move on with their lives, concentrating on their soon to be born child. They aren't at peace for too long, however, as strange things start happening in their house, culminating in it being burned down. They decide to move to a new city, leaving that accursed doll behind, but demons don’t give up so easily, do they?

 

Annabelle delivers quite a few scares, even if you know they’re coming. The sound design is still effective at scaring the bejeezus out of the audience, as are the visuals. It’s a bit predictable, especially for people who have seen the conjuring and Insidious, but still quite a lot of fun to watch. A decent flick to pass the time with.
