The Conjuring’s freaky little doll is back in Annabelle Comes Home, and this time, she’s bringing friends! The third entry in the Annabelle series returns us to the room of evil artifacts in the home of Conjuring demon hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren. When the Warrens are called away on a case, some teenage foolery leads to. Annabelle getting loose from its case, and the demonic doll quickly turns the Warrens’ entire collection into an unholy army of spirits.
It falls on Judy Warren’s unique psychic gifts to outwit Annabelle, before the doll can find a way to once again transfer its evil into a living vessel. Annabelle Comes Home is the directorial debut of longtime. Conjuring universe writer. Gary Dauberman, who has penned the entire trilogy of films about the fearsome doll. Dauberman clearly has deep understanding of the world and characters of. The Conjuring, as well as what makes the franchise such a standout in the horror genre.
Unfortunately, his film lacks any real teeth, and ultimately pales in comparison to the franchise’s previous installment, Annabelle: Creation. The story. Dauberman creates is actually full of potential at the start, with well-drawn teen characters, and some compelling motivation for why. Annabelle gets loose in the first place. Most of the film is an effectively creepy buildup of tension and horror, the only problem is that there’s no real payoff in the third act, despite the implications of an R-rating.
By the time the demonic threat is over, it feels like all we’ve gotten is a bad night of babysitting, rather than the terrifying demon invasion the film promised. In the end, Annabelle Comes. Home falls squarely in the middle of the trilogy. It’s better than first installment, but nowhere near as good as the sequel.
