What it is about this particular doll that makes it so haunting and evil?
This is what the Annabelle Creation movie is all about. It dug into the history of the doll so we all could find out how the evil started. How could a doll that usually brings joy to its owner become so dreadfully evil .
Annabelle was one of those haunting horror movie character that twisted everyone’s love for dolls. When people saw the doll at the first Conjuring movie, it stand out that New Line Cinema, Peter Safran and James Wan had to produce a stand alone movie saying every piece in the Ed and Loraine Warren artifacts has their own story to tell.
I was one of the few who saw the movie’s advance screening together with other dolls fans, who even brought with them their most priced toy. It was fun watching it with the fans as you could see and hear how affected the people were. Everyone would scream and hide their faces at the same time. Then you could hear screams. Then laughter (out of embarrassment after). There were some who screamed solo as the anticipation and scare factor was too much for them to take they had to scream ahead of everyone else. I also love how this movie had cameos of some other horror movie characters!
