Another dull doll horror movie.

The Conjuring, of which Annabelle: Creation is a spin-off, was an unexceptional supernatural horror that shamelessly mined the many clich├ęs of the genre in a desperate search for frights. Likewise, this 'origins' flick is a collection of well-worn scary movie tropes that is unlikely to impress seasoned horror fans. I've lost count of how many creepy doll movies I've seen over the years, and this one does very little new with the idea.

Annabelle is the name given to the fugly doll which acts as a conduit for a nasty demon that causes trouble for a group of nuns and girls who come to live in a farmhouse orphanage. It's a generic, lazy story full of gaping plot holes, lapses in logic and glaring inconsistencies, told with little flair or originality by director David F. Sandberg, who helmed the marginally better Lights Out.

Better, but still pretty average

During the first half an hour of "Annabelle: Creation", I knew I was seeing a far superior movie to the original "Annabelle", which I watched immediately before it.

Toward the end, though, I realised that that was rather faint praise.

Let's look at all the ways this sequel, or spin-off, or whatever you want to call it, is superior to the first movie:

1. It is much better cast, with dependable character actors like Anthony LaPaglia and Miranda Otto in background roles. The best characters, however, are played by the young girls, who do so much of a better job than the nobodies who fronted the previous film, despite being less than half the age of that pair. These young actors are able to carry the movie and generate sympathy.

2. In the first movie, we weren't sure if the doll was haunted, or evil, or both. We were never really invited to be scared of it, and weren't sure what we were supposed to be scared of. In this sequel, the doll is situated in a room the protagonists are forbidden to enter, but which the door to enter is sometimes mysteriously open. Just the establishment of the doll in this creepy, forbidden room makes it a million times scarier than it ever was in the first film.

3. The setting of the original movie in the '60s seemed a bizarre choice which added nothing to the movie. It was more of a distraction than anything as you tried to work out why they went to the trouble of setting the movie in a bygone era without really taking advantage of that choice. "Annabelle: Creation" is again set in a bygone era, but this time that detail adds to the movie. The '50s seem like a lonely era in film. They're not the crudely vaunted halcyon days of peace and love. They're mannered and remote, stranding people on their own upon islands of loneliness caused by tragedy, race, and illness. The movie seems to take advantage of that, though it probably could have done more with it.

It's hard not to praise "Annabelle: Creation" when comparing it to the useless film that preceded it, if not in timeline, then in order of release. But on its own, it's actually fairly average, unfortunately. The movie really starts to lose our attention toward the end, squandering the brownie points it'd earned leading up to that with its promising characters, actors and setting. It's unfortunately not particularly scary either.

Storyline fails to accommodate the suspense

The director mixed several kinds of scary scenes in his mind to scare the audience, which entertained the appetite of horror fans, however distracted himself from telling the story that goes along with the horror. As an audience, I can clearly feel the gap. I still covered my ears pretty tight lol
