Why watch this film?
The most interesting and "out of the box" movie of the cursed doll franchise. After all, here, filmmaker David F. Sandberg takes advantage of an origin story to create a solid foundation of Annabelle's ancestors and, mainly, creates connections with the first movie of the franchise. With a good amount of scares and many jump scares, the feature ends up going beyond the scary appearances of the doll and the potential frightening of its figure. It has story, it has good characters, it has a scary atmosphere by itself. Obviously, the plot ends up being hostage to some obvious and mandatory solutions involving the 'Conjuring' saga, which ends up reducing a bit of the power of 'Annabelle: Creation' as a movie by itself. But that's okay. Still, it's a fun movie for the end of the day and leaves a horror atmosphere even after the final credits. Highlight for the great Lulu Wilson.
Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
