Starring: Annabelle Wallis, Ward Horton, Alfre Woodard, and Tony Amendola
Plot: Before The Conjuring, there was Annabelle… a vintage doll possessed by a demon determined to steal the soul of baby Leah through manipulation and plenty of violence. Sacrifice, vengeance, and horror are all major themes represented in this film.
Why see it: Annabelle, being the prequel to The Conjuring, had a lot to live up to in order to keep fans of The Conjuring interested; Annabelle did just that. Directed by John R. Leonetti, Annabelle kept you on the edge of your seat and with constant suspense and great effects. However, the acting and the ending of the movie hardly satisfied, and did not do the movie much justice. The poor acting made it harder for some scenes to be believable as well as causing them to be predictable, but more so than that, the ending of the film left the audience hanging and disappointed for various reasons. Despite these few flaws in the movie, Annabelle is worth watching. It had an overall good storyline and was full of everything a scary movie should be; plenty of suspense and horror.
