Review of the Movie Annabelle


The movie Annabelle is a horror movie written by Gary Dauberman and directed by John R. Leonetti. The movie was released into theaters on October 3, 2014. This horror movie is not based on a true story, but it is based off of a real doll that was labeled as a “beckoning for other spirits” by Ed and Lorraine Warren. The doll is now locked up in a glass case in the Occult Museum in Monroe, Connecticut. The movie is only an example of what the Annabelle doll could have done if it wasn’t contained by the Warrens at the time they did.

In my opinion, the movie is a wonderful horror movie that gives chills down your spine and will make you think about how weird it is for the doll to be real. The movie had a weird and undefined beginning but as the movie went on, it gave me more suspense and excitement.

At the end of the movie, I knew that they were going to make another one and I couldn’t wait until it came out. This film is a perfect movie for anyone who is wanting to get a little scared with all the jump scares and unexpected twists and turns.

At the end of the movie, they show a picture of the real Annabelle doll and explain that what was seen in the movie is not a true story but the doll is real and it will be contained and under watch for years to come.

Ed and Lorraine have said that the doll was never possessed it had a spirit attached to it that wanted a human body to host. Therefore putting the doll in a glass case sprinkled in holy water with a cross over the doll’s head is the best way to keep the spirit contained.

In the end, I would recommend this horror film to anyone who wants to see something that would seem unbelievable but know that it is 100% true. With all of the scenes being on point and the film being absolutely perfect I will say that Annabelle is my favorite horror movie so far.
