Highly Suspect Reviews: Annabelle Comes Home

Annabelle Comes Home Movie Review


Whoever thought that doll from the beginning of the first Conjuring movie with end up with three spin-offs? And while the sub-series didn’t exactly start off on the right foot with 2014’s lack-luster Annabelle, things markedly improved with 2017’s Annabelle: Creation, and lo, here with are with Annabelle Comes Home. And surprise surprise, it’s the best of the lot. The film begins with the Warrens (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) acquiring the doll and, with difficulty, getting it home to put it in its protective glass cage. Fans of the series are all too familiar with their room full of cursed objects, with Annabelle as the pièce de résistance. When the Warrens have to head out (presumably to deal with the events of the original Conjuring) they leave a babysitter (Madison Iseman) in charge of their young daughter Judy (McKenna Grace). When the babysitter’s troublemaking friend Daniela (Katie Sarife) drops by, things get wonky fast as she ends up in their museum of horrors and unleashes the doll…who, in turn, unleashes everything else in the room. Kim, Zach, and Chris were put reluctantly in their seats to review this one but it turns out they were in for a largely pleasant surprise. Listen to what they had to say here.
