  • 4 stars "The first ANNABELLE film was terrible; this prequel is much better. Overlong and overdone, but still effectively creepy with a tragic undercurrent to give it some weight. Talitha Bateman and Lulu Wilson are especially good."
  • 4 stars "Classic style horror actually done right"
  • 4 stars "Holy doll-face Batman! Although it is hard for me to critique horror films, as I am virtually desensitized now, this is a scary/jumpy film. It is slow to start but it's good to get a lead up. The pace grows steadily more frightening and anyone who doesn't like dolls like this one, will need therapy. The conjuring series has sequels and spin-offs so one has to almost take notes to keep track, but that doesn't take away from anything."
