Annabelle Comes Home

The 7th film in The Conjuring franchise is certainly atmospheric, and you’re not likely to find a creepier doll than Annabelle, under lock and key in the haunted room of Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga).

Yet as befits a Conjuring film, it’s the kids that get it in the neck: the action centres on their daughter Judy (McKenna Grace) and her two babysitters Mary Ellen (Madison Iseman) and Danielle (Katie Sarife); all hell breaks loose when the latter starts snooping in a room marked strictly ‘Verboten’.

There are freaks, creaks and shrieks, but Annabelle Comes Home has a tangible problem with plot and pacing, which is fairly unforgivable in horror.
