Aussie boy's thoughts

The well-crafted spookiness, effective jump-scares and moments of edge-of-the-seat tension will have the fans come home with Annabelle. It doesn’t provide anything too new, so you can expect the predictable but valid moments of ghostly and supernatural terror alike the previous films. However, director Gary Dauberman knows how to execute a solid set of scares.

A camera technique used throughout the Annabelle series and other recent horror movies is the slow movement that follows behind characters, before giving you a fair fright. Horror movie fans will be familiar with this method, making it predictable, but still scary. The jump-scares will give you a scare.

Annabelle Comes Home also uses the procedure of moving us through the setting and characters of the story, before then spending the next prolonged section with the supernatural horror themes. Madison Iseman and Katie Sarife are definitely memorable, and it’s great to see Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in the setting as well.
