Story: Plot of movie involves a happy couple Mia (Annabelle Wallis) and John (Ward Horton) who are all set and eager to enjoy parenthood for their first baby. John gets one cute gift for his expecting wife which is a classic doll, but it happens to be a demonic doll, which stir their life upside down.
Movie Scan: A very happy and perfect couple is depicted by Mia and John. Further as movie proceeds it is seen that all goodness becomes seeding to horror and darkness. Movie pace is lag free and horror effect starts as soon as demonic doll enters in room of Mia and John’s baby who is soon to come.
There are various primary indications of evil activities when Mia tend to wake up in midnight after hearing high-pitched sounds from neighbor’s house. John out of curiosity goes out and investigate neighbor’s house. He realized that neighbors are up to demonic activity and interested in summon a demon with Belial in real physical world. To bring demon into leaving life they needed innocent soul, which was Mia and John unborn baby.
John soon started to disbelieve this activity of neighbors where as Mia was distracted and slowly becoming paranoid mother.
In movie there are various contemporary designs and overall sets are perfect for movie. Music will make you understand and feel fear. But mostly scene will make you prepare before that fear kick you get by horror scene.
As an overview effect of Annabelle is slightly less that The Conjuring. Music and psychological effect will make you get those horrifying effect. Whole movie will get you into horror but it will take you on long sail without any route of own. Movie is totally worth watching. This is not the most horrifying movie, but surely it will leave a sense of drench while leaving movie hall.
