Twelve years after the tragic death of their little girl, a doll-maker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, where they become the target of the doll-maker's possessed creation, Annabelle.
A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.
Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her "safely" behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest's holy blessing. But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new target--the Warrens' ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.Written by

The babysitter left her eggs at the store for the cake, and her best friend took them on her behalf. Later when at the house, we see they raise chickens, and don't need store-bought eggs for a single cake. See more »
There is a lot of evil in this room. But you know what I actually like about it? All the evil in here reminds me of all the good that's out there.

The Conjuring movies (1 &2) are two of my favorite horror movies. The first Annabelle movie was not great. The second one was actually very good. I did not have much by way of expectations, and this movie failed miserably to even meet those. Pacing, horrendous. No Warrens. Too many unnecessary monsters and ghosts with little to no story or purpose. Characters (especially one) doing the whole I'm-going-to-touch-this-or-go-in-here-because-I-can. Honestly, the horror is skimpy and stereotypical. Some scenes dragged on forever with no purpose. My wife, especially, was looking forward to this and is usually forgiving of bad horror movie elements, but even she called it "trash". Annabelle should have stayed away.
