Annabelle: Creation adds another strong chapter to the Conjuring franchise - and offers further proof that freaky-looking dolls remain reliably terrifying.
Annabelle: Creation is the second installment of the Annabelle series that is part of the Conjuring franchise and thankfully this prequel is so much better that you can forget that a movie before this ever exist. The acting is solid, the cinematography and score are top notch and thanks to director David F. Sandberg who also helmed another great horror film Lights Out, Annabelle: Creation is now in line with The Conjuring movies that are admirable for its stories and horrifying sequences. The mood was nicely set-up giving it creepy feelings and some genuine scary scenes that will make you jump out of your seat. The ending too was nicely mesh with some few scenes of the previous film to serve as a reminder just in case people forget. Annabelle: Creation is a really big improvement of the first and now having to ride the charm of The Conjuring films and hopefully will forward this franchise into box office dominance in the horror genre.
Synopsis: 12 years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, where they soon become the target of the dollmaker's possessed creation, Annabelle.

737.Annabelle: Creation#安娜貝爾造孽 (2017)
We thought helping the girls could be our penance. But we ended up giving it just what it wanted.
這部飾演女主角Janice的Talitha Bateman，剛好就是“鬼關燈”裡小男孩演員Gabriel Bateman的姊姊，而兩部片剛好也是同個導演David Sandberg。而Alicia Vela-Bailey則是兩部片都有演出，在“鬼關燈”飾演被光照壞掉的Diana，在“安娜貝爾2”則演推Janice進小木屋的那雙手。最後再補充一個，這集中Mullins夫婦的房子，跟HBO影集“西方極樂園”Dolores的房子是同一間。
