    I'd like to to impose a one-child limit on all films . The idea that children can act is a fantasy; there have been literally three decent actors under twelve in the history of cinema.

    Given my phobia of dolls and certain puppets, I had to stay in the comment section and just listen, but hey. I still came. xD

    I'm halfway through the movie and i gotta say i feel sorry for the doll. She does so much to make them see she's an evil demon but they just keep being like, meh its probably nothing xD Its fun to watch though.

    What I liked about this movie was the character development, the mystery, the deaths and the tie in to the first film. What I didn't like was when Janice was chasing the other girls around. It was obvious that they wasn't gonna get hurt. Other than that it was a great film

    I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Annabelle - D and Anabelle Creation B+ !! You reviewed the first Anabelle movie as extremely dumb and here you say the second movie is an interesting one cause there's characters one can keep interest in. But how can you spare this movie of its extra overload of dumbness too. How on earth you explain little girls' abnormal levels of curiosity. For Christ's sake when its obvious that the room has a ghost in it. Who on earth will walk right in again and again and again? It does not matter how many cool scares the director puts in the next sequence, its just dumb to begin with. And what about when Lulu Wilson's character is on the top bunker and the Annabelle doll or the spirit runs around her room and she can see the doll peek at her from below her bed. Next scene. Lulu Wilson wakes up after a good night's sleep. Excuse me Hello?! how does anyone like ever in the history of ghosts get a good night's sleep with a ghost right below their bunk. Crazy. Just cause in the first Annabelle movie there's no more than two character's on screen for most of the movie - the mother and the child, that does not make it a bad movie. The lift scene (which you do mention also) is damn good. In fact its one of the best scenes in the Conjuring series. And there's little to pick on with the other scenes in there. The opening sequence totally makes sense and depicts the possessing of the doll on the crime scene (a man choosing to check on the neighbors due to some audible commotion is more way more realistic than little girls taking on ghosts in tiny rooms). I just can't believe how you rate both movies on such double standards!

    nonono man, this is not right for me. After seeing annabelle and annabelle 2 and seeing your reviews... no. I mean personally i enjoyed the first more than the second, but what makes me disappointed is not that we don't agree, but the fact that you say that the first movie was bad because it was dumb even if the second was WAAAAAAAY dumber. like, think about it for just a second.

  • Bomholtz

    No! Just no! These Conjuring films keeps getting praised for all the wrong reasons! I like a good horror movie. Hell, I like a bad horror movie once in a while, but this is just an empty piece of glittery shit. Good production value does'nt equal good writing or entertaining frights. The first Conjuring movie did at least make me wanna stay awake for the ending and the first Annabelle had a scary and well written opening. This has next to nothing of substance. It's a series of reused horror tropes that feels insulting to the viewer and packed with boring build up. And the dialog is so flat and unengaging that it was almost unbarable to watch. This franchise should really be laid to rest before it bleeds to much into other mainstream horrorfilms more than it already has. Damn, is this all you expect your horror to be like? I surely want a lot more of an A-list horror movie that is for sure.

  • Bombis Edelfelt
    Bombis Edelfelt Year ago

    I think that beyond the unnecesary jumpscares, the actual storyline is pretty weak... its like forced and not argued why things happened in the movie happen. Sound, actors and cinematography are great, but i think you need more than a good 60's soundtrack and performances in order to success with a horror movie. The script is terrible, too predictable, cliche, overdone, easy way out to make a movie only for entertaining and earn some coins... Horror genre has lost his way, and this movie is one more of the thousands existing that proves it.

  • When Never

    Creation was a joke. Complete waste of time. I seriously don't know is Chris talking about here. Maybe the standards have fallen low. Annabelle: Creation is a completely forgettable horror film. Barely a solid scare, concepts that make no sense at all, a mediocre story that also tends to make no sense, mediocre and unreal acting.
    Not worth your time.

    Ok.. *Spoiler*alert..
    Yes it did hv some good jumpscares... Bt help me figuring this out.
    If the possessed doll was locked up for 12 years and then when the girl opened the closet it comes out and starts to do its thing. Bt if it was locked then how did it approached the girl in the 1st step? It was locked in right?? . And even if it had that capability then why is that it never tried that to her parents?

    Just watched this movie yesterday (January 20, 2018). Though there were some scary moments, I found this movie to be quite disappointing. The characters never really seemed that scared when absolutely terrifying events would happen. They'd be scared for a minute, & then just shrug it off. The movie would seem more realistic if the characters were genuinely scared over such horrific visions & such. Also, the characters were all idiotic. This room is scary as I am just going to keep on going back into it over & over. Really??? The story is supposed to be based on an actual doll that is haunted, but, not only does the doll in this movie look completely different from the original doll, but I am thinking that there is probably about 1% truth to this whole story. BTW, the doll in this movie, no kid in their right mind would ever want to own such a creepy thing.

    I wish they would make these films more realistic, it's what everyone wants, right ? I mean, a demon that can morph and materialize through walls, but a little girl can out smart it by running into a loft crawl space and putting a latch on the door.
