4.5

Suitably terrifying, ‘Annabelle: Creation’ will keep you in suspense throughout the entire movie. As the name suggests, the film shows the true origin of the doll Annabelle. Nothing like a group of orphaned children to add to our terror of the sweet dolls awakening. A prequel to previous Conjuring movies, you don’t need to have seen them to understand Creation, however, those that have seen the first rather inferior ‘Annabelle’ will get more out of the ending. Followers will also appreciate the possible links to the highly anticipated 2018 Conjuring spin-off, ‘The Nun’. People with heart conditions may want to skip this one, and I’d be shocked if anyone slept soundly after its viewing.

Reminds me of:

  • The Conjuring universe
  • The Boy
  • The Ring
  • Orphan
  • Child’s Play
