The plot of the Movie:
The film starts with Lorraine and Ed Warren (the paranormal investigators) who captured the cursed Annabelle doll and going to their home. On their way, Ed saw an accident on the road and decided to go through another way. The car ran out of fuel and stopped in front of a graveyard and the spirits started rising from the grave as the demon inside the doll attracts evil spirits.
However, they managed to escape and reached their home with a priest to lock that powerful demon inside the doll. The doll was locked in shelf with a cross sign and other holly word enchanted on it. They kept the shelf in a room with other objects related to the haunted cases they solved. Their daughter (Judy Warren) also had the powers to see the spirits and talk to them. She had to face a lot of mockeries and no one is interested to talk with her and do friendship due to her powers.
Mary Ellen is the babysitter of Judy and was the only friend of Judy with whom she plays and talks about her day. The first half of the movie showed the story of the Warren family and the character introduction, while the other half was full of scary shots and entertainment. Ed and Lorraine went out for some days and left her daughter with Mary. Mary was in love with Bob and he came to Judy’s house to celebrate her birthday.
Daniela Rios also came there to celebrate her birthday, but her main motive was to speak with her father’s spirit who was killed in an accident and captured by Ed Warren. While trying have a conversation with her dad’s spirit, Annabelle strikes head into the glass, she thought that her father wants to talk and opens the shelf. From that point the horror game of Annabelle starts, the demon pulled all the spirits and attacks on every person in the house.
While the movie is good and worth to watch, it’s not on the level of ‘The Conjuring’ and Annabelle first and second, it’s better than ‘The Nun’ though. The story lies in between the Conjuring and Annabelle Creation which makes no confusion for the fresh watchers. The first half of the movie is slow while the second half goes well and haunted. The film is not much better than ‘The Nun’ and plotted a good base for ‘The Conjuring 3”.
The entire movie was filmed in a single house which gives an advantage and a disappointment. The advantage is that the audience will be focused as the locations are not changing frequently which makes it more frightening, the disadvantage is that you’ll not be able to see much scenes and will not get a chance to jump off your seat or slap the guy sitting next to you. The horror drama is performing well in India and abroad, but not as good as compared to the previous parts of Annabelle series. Moreover, if you are looking for Amazon Recruitment then it could be best chance to try it.
In a nutshell, it’s a good movie with a good rating of 6.5/10 on IMDB, 68% on Rotton Tomatoes and a fair 71% given by the audience. The fans os Conjuring should see it as the movie is a good plot to ‘The Conjuring 3’ and maybe give a reference to other movies of the Conjuring Universe. Also, it has no relation with the previous movies of Annabelle and Conjuring series which makes it easier for fans to watch and enjoy with no fear of misunderstanding. Just book your seat and lock yourself with this haunted doll in a movie theatre for 3 hours.
