Annabelle: Creation

Annabelle: Creation ★★

Annabelle: Creation was pretty fucking stupid. I cannot for the life of me understand the praise that this movie is getting. While there weren't any major flaws with the filmmaking, the whole thing felt so generic, like every other horror movie Blumhouse has released in the past ten years.

I keep hearing that this film has "genuinely good scares," but those were nowhere to be found. Annabelle: Creation was an hour and 45 minutes of jumpscares. A character slowly walks into a room, the high pitched string orchestra slowly gets louder and louder, the scene abruptly goes silent, then BANG! spooky scary loud noise. Rinse and repeat.

As I said before, I didn't have any major problems with the filmmaking. The acting was decent and the cinematography was pretty good, but that doesn't excuse how cookie-cutter this movie was.

Rating: 4/10
