Annabelle: Creation is the prequel to the 2014 movie Annabelle and a spin-off of The Conjuring series. In this installment, a toymaker and his wife tragically lose their 7 year old daughter. Several years later, still grieving, they invite a nun and a group of orphans to their home hoping to provide help to those in need and to lift their own spirits. Unbeknownst to the nun and the children, a haunted doll lives in the house and is out for blood.
Children are the main focus of this movie but it is absolutely NOT for children to see! However if you are not a child and you’re a fan of The Conjuring movies, I would highly recommend you check this flick out! As a huge fan of The Conjuring movies, I thought this movie was very well written and contained the perfect amount of creep factor! Honestly it was one of the best horror movies I’ve seen in a long time. Some horror movies are just full of blood and sickening gore with no actual plot or reasoning to any of it. Annabelle: Creation was definitely full of plenty of that but it had some substance and a story that connects pieces of The Conjuring, The Conjuring 2 and Annabelle. Scary moments that made the whole audience scream, jump and hilariously talking to the girls on screen warning them not to do that! That might be my favorite part about seeing scary movies in a theater. It lightens the mood a tad and creates a whole cinematic experience if someone is behind you saying “Don’t open that door!” or “Runnnn!” or “Nope!” If you’re looking for a fantastically scary, edge of your seat horror story with plenty of shocking scenes, this is it! Perfect date night or girls night out movie! In theaters, August 11th!
