The last movie from this universe was The Nun and that movie didn't really hit the right notes with audiences.
So how does Annabelle Comes Home compare to all the other movies in the Conjuring universe?
The movie is set in the house of Ed and Loraine Warren, paranormal investigators who solve supernatural cases. They have to go away for a while so they leave their daughter in the care of their babysitter who invites a friend over and they stumble upon a room which houses some of the most haunted and cursed artifacts in the world. They release the Annabelle doll which in turn releases all the artifacts leaving them stuck in a house plagued with demons.
Honestly it's not an instant cult classic. This movie isn't going to make it into the ranks of one of the greatest horror movies ever made. So if your a fan of horror movies, this one isn't going to make you feel fear. They heavily rely on jump scares and other pretty predictable tricks to garner fear out of you.
It's predictable, a little too predictable. You know when you watch a horror movie' and you can tell a loud noise followed by a jump scare is coming.That's what you pretty much get.
SPOILER ALERT! Majority of the movie is centered around the house of Ed and Loraine Warren. They are briefly in the movie so don't expect to see them as much. When a movie is centered around one location like the way this movie is, there really isn't a lot you can do so it forces the director and writers to be creative. Unfortunately that wasn't the case in the movie.
