Positively do not open,’ reads the warning sign etched in bold capital letters on the sacred closet, holding the evil doll Annabelle. You don’t need to be a horror fan to know that somehow, the exact opposite will happen. Clearly, unpredictability is not among the strong points of Annabelle Comes Home. However, for a debutant, director and writer Gary Dauberman delivers quite handsomely in dishing out many delicious jump scares at a consistent pace. At the heart of it is his excellent camera control and the strategy to generate constant scares.

The film opens with the daredevil duo Ed and Lorraine bringing the doll home. They lock it up in their basement, along with a host of other creepy memorabilia from their infamous cases. The room is packed with ghostly goodies waiting to be fiddled with for all hell to break loose. Meanwhile, their daughter Judy is having a hard time with school bullies because of what her parents do for a living. This part is sensitively handled. But the narrative quickly gets into the action mode, as the couple goes away for a weekend, leaving their daughter with a young but responsible babysitter Mary Ellen (Madison Iseman). All is well, until her bestie Daniela (Katie Sarife) goes snooping around the house, hoping to find some connect with her dead father. Another well-executed plot point to bring in the emotional connect with a character and justify her actions. What follows is a spookfest that will transport you into a house of horrors. The background score is very effective and adds to the impact when used with some novel ideas to induce fear. And once the ghostly business begins, there’s hardly a dull moment. Dauberman throws in some comic relief too, when a nerdy neighbor - the young Bob (Michael Cimino) besotted by Mary Ellen, tries to woo her, but gets caught in the crossfire.

Performance-wise, child star Mckenna Grace does a fine job with her restrained act even during the most horrific turn of events. Rest of the cast plays along well. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson have limited screen time, but with so much nonstop action, their absence is hardly felt. The Victorian setting of the Warren home and the subtle dark colours add oodles of spookiness to the proceedings. Overall, 'Annabelle Comes Home' is a textbook scarefest that delivers on its promise to haunt, without being complicated or preachy about Gods and demons.
I enjoyed this movie. Its in my opinion one of the best horror related films to have come out in a while that focuses on horror vs gory and or sexually explicit . As an adult vs to when we were kids its hard to find movies to give you that "jump scare " in which i thought this movie had however as adults we are overly critical about scary movies. I think that for children this deff would be an absolutely scary movie w no nudity or sex just plain horror w not much blood which is great. Im a horror fan, as a kid i watched all the horrors like chucky, jason and nightmare on elm street to name a few and as a kid i was creeped out and scared by some of them. It was great! But now as adult watching them im like what the heck was i scared of its all comical and way to explicit for me to have seen as a kid w no parental supervision lol. My advice is to watch the movie for what it is and not try and see it as a overly critical adult, Save those thoughts for the horrid remakes like chucky (terrible) btw
