Part of Schlocktober 2017
I never saw the original Annabelle movie but I had heard it's terrible and this sequel is better. Of course The Conjuring movies are solid enough so I figured I'd give this one a chance.
Annabelle: Creation is well shot but ultimately it suffers from too many jump scares and not being even remotely scary. I just don't find the doll all that creepy and yet they have these creepy ass scarecrows that are much scarier and they only get a second of screentime.
I'm hoping The Nun spin-off delivers the goods next year though. She was genuinely creepy in The Conjuring 2.
