Sequels usually tend to have trouble measuring up to the originals. However, in the horror world, there are plenty of occasions that the follow-up turns out to be a surprisingly satisfying entry into its canon. In the case of Annabelle Creation Movie Online , we’re handed a sequel that runs circles around the original, both as a quality movie and a gruesome terrifying piece of horror storytelling.
Similar to Ouija: Origin of Evil from last year, Annabelle Creation Movie Online is actually a prequel instead of a sequel. As the title implies, Annabelle Creation online free provides the origin story of how the possessed doll of Anabelle first came to be inhabited by an evil entity.
Annabelle Creation Movie Online takes place over a decade before the events of Annabelle, and we meet Sister Charlotte (Stephanie Sigman) as she accompanies a small group of orphan girls who have been taken in by the Mullins, Sam (Anthony La Paglia) and Esther (Miranda Otto). The couple was once a happy, lively pair of parents, until their daughter Annabelle was killed in a car accident. Twelve years after her daughter’s dead, they keep to themselves, but they still hope to bring a little light into the house by helping these orphaned girls have a home for a while.
Our protagonists are Linda (Lulu Wilson) and Janice (Talitha Bateman). They’re best friends and vow to be together no matter what. It’s clear they’ve stuck together for a while as they waiting for a family to take them in, but Janice struggles even more because of polio having made her left leg weak and forcing her to walk with a brace on her leg and a crutch on one arm. Janice is the one discovering Annabelle tucked away in the room that once belonged to the Mullins’ deceased daughter. The young girl unwittingly releases the demon that resides in the doll, and what’s surprising is just how forward and aggressive the demon is in pursuing the soul that it needs to finally be free from the doll.
Annabelle Creation movie director David F. Sandberg does a fine job of setting the stage for the horror to come, especially when it comes to introducing little set pieces or elements that come into play as the horrors begin to unfold. Things like a malfunctioning dumbwaiter, the bell Esther rings to get the attention of Sam and an old but functional chair lift on the stairs are all introduced innocently enough, but become tools of terror as the movie goes on. You’ll also probably never want to sleep on bunk beds again.
Annabelle Creation Movie Online is a little slow to start, but once strange things start happening around the house, things escalate quickly and simply don’t stop. It’s shocking how intense, suspenseful and gruesome the scares are in this movie, each more surprising than the previous one. There are jump scares for sure, but there are moments where you’ll be taken aback simply because of how bold the demon is in harming the inhabitants of the house. As soon as Annabelle is free, all bets are off, and the movie becomes relentlessly frightening to the point that you won’t be able to sit still in your seat. If there’s one problem with Annabelle Creation 720p Online , it’s would be those scares doesn’t seem to follow any set of rules. The movie is chilling enough to keep any questions you might have about the demon’s limitations at bay, but they do occasionally creep up as the scares begin to escalate.
Annabelle Creation Movie Online avoids explaining the origin until the movie’s third act. However you don’t actually need to know how/why the doll was possessed to be terrified of this demonic presence. The movie benefits from not laying out the groundwork for the doll’s possession until it comes time for our characters to understand where it came from. The most important thing is that this is a suspenseful, scary and superior follow-up to Annabelle, and that’s great news for fans of The Conjuring cinematic universe.
