Will Annabelle: Creation scare you for life? Here’s what we think…


‘Annabelle: Creation’ as the title suggests is a prequel to ‘Annabelle (2014)’ from The Conjuring universe. The movie is directed by David F. Sanberg, who directed the haunting Lights Out (2016)  and features its similar drive and shock value.

To get you up to speed in placing the timeline of events (movie-wise), here you go:

  • Annabelle: Creation (2017) – Directed by David F. Sanberg
  • Annabelle (2014) – Directed by John R. Leonetti
  • The Conjuring (2013) – Directed by James Wan
  • The Conjuring 2 (2016) – Directed by James Wan

The level of horror covered in the movie fails to match that of The Conjuring series by James Wan, however it does have its moments that will have you reaching out for a handful of popcorn.

The movie covers the origins of the eerie Annabelle doll that we’ve come to fright over the years. The plot is set at a farmhouse where a former doll maker welcomes a nun and six orphaned girls into his home. Terror soon strikes as the story unfolds to reveal that the house is also host to a seemingly innocent doll with a demonical backstory – equipped to torment the house’s new inhabitants.

‘Annabelle: Creation’ portrays the Annabelle doll in new light, rather darkness, and sets the base for the terrifying incidents that follow throughout the film and across The Conjuring franchise onward. The movie couples numerous sequences of silence with sudden piercing acoustics to subsequently create its spine-chilling horror.
