The Conjuring didn’t frighten me the first time I saw it. The second time I jumped out of my skin. Perhaps the least effective part of the film came with the bookends focusing on Annabelle. You know. The creepy doll that is possessed. ALLEGEDLY. She uses crayons and cannot be thrown in the garbage. Sure, the doll is disgusting to look at and should burn in a fire, but it is still a doll.

Produced by James Wan but directed by John R. Leonetti, this is an origin story about a murderous doll. The tone in the trailer seems like a good start but…a doll.
