Annabelle (2014) Synopsis:
A mysterious doll named Annabelle turns out to be the cause of a series of horrible paranormal events in the life of a young couple.
Annabelle is a spin-off to The Conjuring, which we elected “best 2013’s horror movie”. Instead of James Wan, this prequel (because it feels more like a prequel than anything else) was trusted to John R. Leonetti (Butterfly Effect 2), a less exciting name…but a man who ended up doing a very decent job.
Annabelle’s story is faithful to The Conjuring with the possessed doll being, indeed, at the center of the scenario. But even if the movie does not bring any surprises in terms of concept or plot twists, the story remains a pretty good one, or at least just enough to keep the movie interesting at all times.
The best point of that movie is definitely its scary aspect. There are a lot of moments that will make your skin crawl. Most of them are clever jump scares, but the overall atmosphere is also very creepy. One thing I loved about Annabelle is that it dares to show the figure of the demon and, just like in Insidious, that demon is one creepy motherfucker. If you have to see the movie just for one thing, it would be that guy.
Annabelle has received some pretty rough criticism since its release, but I think they are unjustified. After a masterpiece such as The Conjuring, most people expected to see a similarly brilliant movie, which Annabelle is not. But taken as a standalone, it remains an excellent horror film and one of the creepiest releases of the year.
