In Santa Monica, California, Mia (Annabelle Wallis) and John Gordon (Ward Horton) are happily married and Mia is pregnant. John is concluding the medical school and does not have much time to give attention to his beloved wife, so he buys an ancient and rare doll named Annabelle for her collection. But soon their next door neighbors are attacked by two members of a satanic cult that break in their house and attack them after killing the neighbors. Mia and John are saved by the police officers and Mia needs to rest until the delivery. But there is a fire in their house and Mia early delivers a baby girl, Leah.
The family moves to an apartment in Pasadena but first Mia throws the doll Annabelle away in the garbage. However she finds the doll in a box while unpacking things in her new home. Weird things happen to Mia and she befriends Evelyn (Alfre Woodard), who works in a bookstore, and she learns about an evil cult that wants Leah's soul. When John and Mia summons Father Perez (Tony Amendola) to help them with Annabelle, evil is stronger than the priest and he is sent injured to the hospital. Who may save Leah's soul now?
"Annabelle" is an unoriginal horror movie with an evil doll that is a sort of Chucky with skirt. The plot is creepy in few moments only and never engaging. The story is weak but the performances and the cinematography are decent. I had great expectations with this movie and the deception was also great. But if the viewer sees this movie with less expectation, he or she may enjoy some fright moments. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Annabelle"
