Annabelle Comes Home

When I saw this at my local theater, they had two movies playing one side was Toy Story 4  and the other side was Annabelle Comes Home. Which doll movie should I watch? The fun-loving doll or the evil doll. I have seen Toy Story 4 the other night, and I really liked it, but now the evil doll. 

This movie was excellent and scary; the tension and the jump scare got me. Even I jump and spill my drink on my date, and she didn’t like it. Oh well. It looks like the date is over. The movie was creepy. 

The story is, Annabelle was taken from a house from the first movie. The movie is both a sequel, prequel, more like a midquel, in the conjuring universe. They picked up the doll and placed it in the glass case.

Conjuring 2: Enfield Poltergeist

conjuring-2

The movie opens when Ed and Lorraine did an investigation of the Amityville house in Long Island, New York. Lorraine is a clairvoyant she could sense an evil in the house. Will there be a reboot of the horror classic of the Amityville House Horror?  The 1979 and 2005 version is quite enough.

Maddison wolf is an incredible actress, her performance was absolutely fantastic and scary, I would not dare be in the ally with her and when she goes all evil.

The children in this movie did an excellent performance and this was their first acting job in a horror film.  I wonder what agent told their parents that their child would be working in a horror film.

“Your child will be in horror film, they will be torment by evil spirits and it pays $5,000 a day,” said the agent.

“Great. I need them to get a job and I need the money to get them nice things,” a parent would say.

The directional by James Wan was brilliant, his camera angles and continuing shots takes you inside the life the Hodgson family. Some of the scenes did make me jump, but the girl who was sitting next to me told me to get off her lap. It may not scare you, there were some scenes may be too intense for younger children. Remember these events happened to them. And evil spirits can follow you, that’s what happened to Loraine from the Amityville house. She would not go back to that house anymore.

There was one particular scene when they were interview the devil, originally Hogdson family did not want to tell that story they will sue the writers. But the writers was clever enough to do it and use a blur effect which was intense and clever. Janet was completely blurred out and her voice was deepen with a voice actor. And one could see the devil face immerging out of the blurring scene.  The dialoguing came straight out of the actually recording of the conservation in 1977 on tape.

Many non-experts though it was prank, that the children would do anything to get attention, but where’s the proof of this incident. Children did not have the knowledge to do this, remember this was in 1977. Computers and the internet was not invented by this time for the public. How is it possible a child could lift a table and throw it across the room? They do not have the strength to do this and bending a ladle.

This movie made you believe that if you make a homemade sprit board, evil spirits can come in. Don’t do it, just close it. Or suffer the consequences of evil in your house. If someone spots you levitating or walking on the walls. Get out of the house.

Ed and Lorraine have a museum of haunted items in their home.

Overall this is a great horror film, do not bring children, if you do they will get nightmares. I give it 8 out of 10.

Go to church!

Conjuring 2 – The movie

conjuring 2 MPFrom the case files of Lorraine and Ed Warren, they investigate the Hodgson Family in England where poltergeist and evil haunts their house. Ed and Lorraine came right after they investigate the Amityville House in 1977. The events in Enfield case happened in 1977. This movie is based on true terror that inspired Enfield poltergeist and evil.

Are you scared? Bring a pillow and a Bible.  And go to church on Sundays.
