On the first night the movie Annabelle came out, I couldn’t get to the theater fast enough. When I first found out they were making a spin-off of The Conjuring, I don’t think I have ever been so happy about a movie ever. The Conjuring would definitely be considered a favorite of mine.
To be completely honest, I was a little bit disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the movie, I just expected it to be better after seeing The Conjuring. To me it was less scary but did have a lot of jump scares, which keeps you intrigued throughout the movie. The person I went with, however, did think it was scary and apparently so did some of the others in the movie theater, if their screams were any indication.
The storyline itself was interesting and original. Yes, I know the premise of killer dolls isn’t all of that original (Chucky), but without spoiling anything, I will say it’s more than just a psycho doll. I actually liked the ending, even though I wish it could have ended differently.
The movie is rumored to be based on the concept of a true story,

Though, contrary to my opinion, many people I have talked to thought it was very good and a really scary movie, and according to them, it is scarier than The Conjuring.
My opinion is just one of many. I say it’s a good movie and it’s worth watching, however it did not live up to my pretty high expectations. I rate it 3.5 stars.
