ANNABELLE: CREATION (David F. Sandberg, 2017)

SPOILER ALERT!!

Worked very much like the first Conjuring movie with a bunch of young girls getting terrorized in a haunted house.

The first half was actually a good origin story with a few well-thought-out jump scenes (if you’re expecting the usual cheap scares, you’ll probably fall asleep during this part).

The second half was a bit of a disappointment, with the movie recognizing that it needed to up the fear quotient and bombarded the audience with standard horror movie cliches.

Created the right mood and atmosphere with some fine performances by the kids. The movie also successfully connected itself to the whole Conjuring-Annabelle-Valak universe.

Ooh, and the real Annabelle doll! Cool easter egg.
