Annabelle: Creation

Movie Review: Not an instant horror classic but many will like.

The Doll Is Back!

The Conjuring and Annabelle series presents a fictional take of real life cases of Ed and Lorraine Warren. If you are curious about the Warrens, I recommend reading about their cases. Their stories could be sensationalized but it is still interesting to read about.

Annabelle: Creation is a prequel to 2014’s Annabelle, and is about a Doll first introduced in 2013’s The Conjuring. Confused? Don’t worry; you don’t need to watch the previous movies to understand this movie. It would be nice to watch the Conjuring series or Annabelle before Annabelle: Creation but it is not entirely necessary.

Ok back to the movie.

Annabelle: Creations is supposed to be a horror movie. I only jumped one time during the movie, it was in the very beginning with the family.

The crowd I was with must have been a bunch of leftist millennials because I couldn’t understand why some of these people were screaming. I grew up watching Exorcist, Hellraiser, Jason, Halloween, and many other famous horror flicks, maybe my mind is so screwed up I think everything scary is normal.

Or maybe this is just another film with typical horror film clichés. There was nothing new to me. But I do understand why many would enjoy this film. It has your typical camera pan, sudden sounds, door slamming, silence - followed up by scary sounds, religious symbols (scary to the far left), things popping up from the dark, demon child, lights flickering and creepy looking dolls.

The story is about a group of orphan girls and a nun who lives in a creepy house run by a creepy man. A possessed doll, a creepy spirit, is haunting the hell out of the children and nun. But they decide to stay even with all the creepy stuff going on. Yes, I am that lazy writing this review.

I believe this movie is entertaining enough for the general audience and it did have its moments. But for seasoned horror film geeks, this movie will not do anything for you. Let’s just say I was more interested with the attractiveness of the Nun than anything else going on.

Leftist Social Engineering (LSE)

It actually had some positive moments concerning religion but there were times when it gave a bad impression on Catholicism. Nothing too serious though and I wouldn’t be alarmed.

ReeYaa Score = Low

Final Thoughts

I would recommend this movie if you really had nothing to do for a night. As for a horror flick, it wouldn't be considered good. Lets just say it was entertaining enough.
