Annabelle Creation Review: A Thrilling Experience and A Chilling Addition to The Conjuring Universe!
Annabelle: Creation tells the story of a group of orphans who move to a farmhouse where owners Samuel and Ester Mullins (Anthony LaPagila and Miranda Otto) open their home to become the girls' new orphanage. After making themselves at home one of the girls, Janice (Talitha Bateman), finds a room where a doll is locked away. The doll is no ordinary toy as it houses an evil spirit that the Mullins summoned after mistaking it for their daughter who was killed twelve years earlier. Once released the evil spirit begins to haunt Janice and the other girls in the hopes of terrorizing the residents and taking their souls.
Annabelle: Creation is an impressive horror film to say the least. Although the movie could be too formulaic for its own good, it still manages to be effective thanks to its compelling execution and its frightening atmosphere. While it may not be as haunting as the likes of The Conjuring, Annabelle: Creation is a film worthy of this cinematic universe as this spin-off film managed to be a chilling ghost story to experience on the silver screen.
