Horror . Mystery

John Form has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia - a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia's delight with Annabelle doesn't last long. On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now... Annabelle.

More Info:
  • Inkoo Kang

    The late-60's Satanic panic and housewifely ennui make for a surprisingly complementary mix of fear and paranoia in Annabelle.

    Annabelle is mostly a grab into the Great Big Bag O’ Horror Clichés: sound-bombs of shrieking violins explode randomly, doors slam unbidden, rocking chairs creak by themselves, machines suddenly whir to life.

  • Michael Phillips

    Each time a character gets tossed in the air by some manifestation or another, the effect is cheesy. Still, I've seen worse. For the record, the violence in Annabelle is far less copious and sadistic than the stuff in the Denzel Washington movie everybody's going to.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Annabelle works enough devil figurine juju to make for a modestly hair-raising prequel to the more satisfying scares of its predecessor, "The Conjuring."

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    As a blunt object, a machine built to put nerves on edge and fingers over eyes, Annabelle is still crudely (and cruelly) effective. Fear comes cheap.

  • Scott Foundas

    When it comes to Annabelle’s five or six big stinger moments, Leonetti manages to deliver the jolts, and if audiences are sure to head home complaining about how dumb and predictable it all was, many may also find themselves nursing their significant others’ lightly bruised forearms.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    Annabelle is less cluttered with creepy bric-a-brac than “The Conjuring.” (The original director, James Wan, produced here.) But Mr. Leonetti embraces the potential of negative space.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    Though it features a plucky female protagonist, Annabelle still possesses the same medieval attitude toward women as “The Conjuring,” reducing the gender to the extremes of self-sacrificing mother and malevolent toy.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The scares don't stay with you. They're the horror-movie equivalent of junk food.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    The script highlights an annoying lack of self-preservation on behalf of the protagonists. But the movie tries to be more than just a creepy doll freakout, and delivers the requisite scares.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    There’s real craftsmanship to the film, but it’s in service of a story that can’t quite support it.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    There’s nothing surprising about this late ’60s tale, including its connection to the modern ghost stories told in “The Amityville Horror” and “The Conjuring.” But what it lacks in originality it makes up with in hair-raising execution. You will scream like a teenage girl.

  • Drew McWeeny

    Leonetti doesn't seem to have any particular knack for the staging of suspense or fear.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Kim Newman

    A couple of good jumps but this Conjuring spin-off is led down by poor writing, anodyne leads and and overwhelming sense of familiarity

    Empire Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Centrally, the title character remains an impressive piece of propwork, and Leonetti's restraint in never animating it (à la Chucky) is the only thing worth appreciating here.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Sadly, Annabelle, a cheap, sleazy, low-budget prequel meant to explain the origins of that particular doll, is as undistinguished, uninteresting, and unscary as the worst of the Chucky films.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Annabelle invites unflattering comparisons with scary movies that came before, but its disparate parts never coalesce into a genuinely fearsome thriller.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Christopher Gray

    It's all a far cry from James Wan's The Conjuring, which embraced the thrill of the paranormal even as it respected its frazzled, earthbound characters.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Annabelle is so lazily coat-tailing on Roman Polanski, they should have called it “Rosemary’s Barbie.”

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    While it’s possible that Annabelle might give a few audience members goosebumps, anyone who’s ever seen "Rosemary’s Baby" –or pretty much any film James Wan’s had a hand in since helming 2007’s "Dead Silence", the "Saw" franchise excepted – will figure out what’s going on within the first 30 minutes.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    Gary Dauberman’s haphazard screenplay merely piles on the cheap scares, with director Leonetti cranking the volume up to 11 to accentuate the frequent jolts. It all adds up to a compendium of horror movie clichés.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    It offers surface level scares without the undercurrent of humanity needed to make them register. Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    If "subtle" horror movies are going to be this devastatingly boring, maybe it's time to bring back the buckets of blood.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Despite its deficiencies, Annabelle is not without a modicum of verve. It has its unnerving moments, but they’re outweighed by the sheer stupidity and predictability of the story.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Familiarity is not always a bad thing, though. "The Conjuring" breathed new life into old clichés; it showed that those creaking doors and possessed closets and white-robed figures still had the power to scare us. But that was a movie made with sensitivity and purpose. The blunt, lifeless Annabelle, on the other hand, sucks that life right back out.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Graham Fuller

    Wallis is commendably restrained and Alfre Woodard adds class as Mia’s wise ally. But Annabelle is a vortex of visual clichés beyond rescue.

  • Kyle Anderson

    For a superior experience, go buy a disturbing-looking doll that says ''Don't go see Annabelle'' when you pull its string.
