Annabelle Creation is a very creepy movie!
It begins at the very beginning of the dolls ‘creation’ and is set in the early 1900’s. A doll maker and his wife live in an old house in the countryside, which already gives spooky elements that portray a good classic horror movie. The couple live by themselves as their daughter died in a tragic accident 12 years before. As they have space in the house, they allow a nun and some orphan girls to stay with them. As time progresses, one of the orphans discover something that opens a whole new door, Annabelle.
The movie being set back in the 1930’s, 1940’s is a perfect recipe for a spooky horror flick. There were a lot of props early on in the movie, that you could see making an appearance later in the storyline. I think it added to the excitement of what could happen later on. Also why is old vintage stuff so spooky? It just seems to fit in with the horror genre so well!
Parts of the movie featured and referenced some characters that have been introduced in other Conjuring movies, also some that may have the potential to feature their own story in up coming movies. It is really epic how The Conjuring writers are bringing in new characters to keep the story going. And they are not just boring characters, they are creepy as f#*k!
The movie doesn’t have much ‘down time’. What I mean by this is there isn’t much boring moments. The frights keep on coming, and they come in very genius like ways!
Behind all the frights I think the makers again have made this another movie that will fit well in The Conjuring Universe. As James Wan is involved again, I think he has a lot to do with the style of the horror and what is has achieved.
Oh yes. The end is very clever!
Straight up there is nothing in this movie I found disappointing. Actually nothing. It just gets better and better.
Checkout the trailer below. Trust me when I say there is a lot more scary scenes they don’t show you in this preview!
So in conclusion get to the cinema before this finishes and see it! Everything on the bigger screen is better. The girl next to me had a blanket to cover her face in the freaky parts. So get comfortable.
Enjoy and keep up with the creepiness!
