Re-watched this one recently and now I remember why it didn't really leave an impression like it's sequels. as the first of the trilogy it had the burden of building the characters and world up, which it failed to do. none of the characters felt fleshed out, leaving the viewer to not really care what happens to any of them. for most of the film you feel as if you're watching a slice of life film instead of a horror one. it finally starts to pickup halfway through the film although the ending doesn't really feel earned and the conflict happens and dies out too quickly as if it remembered it had to happen. the second film did a way better job at being a spin-off film for this important entity of The Conjuring universe.

enjoyable horror flick

Enjoyable horror flick that was pretty creepy and suspenseful with some good jump scares and jaw-dropping moments. also completely breaks the cliche of the annoying skeptical husband/boyfriend, that made me happy (2 viewings, 6/20/2020)

Horror tedium

ANNABELLE is another derivative horror film, very similar in look and tone to THE CONJURING, of which it is a spin off. The predictable story sees your usual happily married couple come into possession of a creepy doll and who subsequently find themselves menaced by ghostly events at their home.

Needless to say this is a very traditional haunted house movie with nothing in the way of originality or freshness to recommend it. Mainly the film follows the wife as she's spooked by various apparitions and creepy stuff going on. The cast is made up of the usual priests, doctors, and disbelievers, and the scares are inevitably of the CGI-enhanced variety. When did modern horror become so passe? Well-telegraphed scares and endless supposedly creepy dread does not a good film make. Annabelle Wallis, who was quite dreadful in PEAKY BLINDERS, is equally unsympathetic here and ANNABELLE as a whole is a chore to watch.
