Annabelle (2014) Film Review. New Line Pictures,RatpackEntertainment,The Safron Company,Atomic Monster. Distributed by WarnerBros Pictures. Rated R US, Certificate 15 UK, running time 100 minutes.Directed by John R. Leonetti
Turns out this murdering couple were part of a Devil Worshiping cult and were killing people as sacrifices. That is the story, the Doll becomes a conduit of Evil,being taken over by the Demon,the two muderers were trying to wake. I'm being honest I actually thought this wasn't too bad,and is certainly better than its predecessor The Conjuring.
With the standout star being Annabelle Wallis a British actress mainly famous for TV roles especially the TV drama Pinky Blinders who plays the expectant Mother Mia if only could the same be said about her husband Ward Horton, who comes across as a complete wet lettuce,a complete waste of time as a Husband and family Protector. Shame also Alfre Woodard only had a small part in this,but her character is the most Interesting in this film as a psychic,who senses the Doll is possesed by an evil being. All I can say is it is alright,not groundbreaking,with a few decent jump moments,but still a poor excuse, for probably a silly amount of money being spent on this,and why because we can,and we have a freaky little Doll to show off and another sequel in the making as we speak.
A disappointing film,but still better than the Conjuring,with in places some genuine scares.
