While Annabelle: Creation attempts to follow in the footsteps of last year's horror prequel period piece, Ouija: Origin of Evil, which itself earned the prize for most marked franchise improvement, Creation is more or less the same mediocre product that we got last time.
'Annabelle: Creation' isn't the type of horror movie content to haunt you with eerie music and jump scares. Characters in Annabelle: Creation is maimed, die, and come back to life possessed by demons. There are stakes and consequences and bad things happen, which you can't say of even the highly regarded Conjuring movies, whose protagonists always seem just barely to escape the clutches of one demonic creature or another.
In the end, “Annabelle: Creation” seems most invested in mechanics and minutiae: It’s fascinated by the squirm-inducing possibilities of a malfunctioning dumbwaiter, or a none-too-reliable chair lift that Janice has to use to get up and down the stairs. It’s keen too on making sure the events of this prequel and the original “Annabelle” snap together as neatly as possible — too neatly, perhaps.
Director David F. Sandberg is an alchemist of the first order, taking the base — even leaden — components of horror and whipping them into a shivery chiffon of dread. The Swedish filmmaker has done it again — with even cheesier material — taking the cliche-filled pantry of the devil-doll prequel “Annabelle: Creation” and turning out a dish that, while pulled together from the familiar components of the ghost story, is uncommon, nerve-rackingly satisfying.
