Just when I thought this series was running on fumes (and it mostly is), ‘Annabelle Comes Home’ comes out. It’s surprisingly not terrible, but it isn’t great either.
The plot centers around the Warren’s leaving their daughter alone over night with a babysitter who invites her friend over. This friend happens to have had a tragic death of her father hanging over her head and she wants to go into the room of evil artifacts. She unwittingly unleashes Annabelle on the house and the three girls are forced to take on their own demons as well as the evil room of horrors.
The scares aren’t up to par with ‘The Conjuring’, but there is a fun easter egg of the original Annabelle doll (Raggedy Ann in real life) so be on the lookout if you plan on seeing this one. It leaves the creepiness at the door, but if you are looking to fill a rainy afternoon, ‘Annabelle Comes Home’ isn’t a total waste of time.
