[MOVIE REVIEW] ANNABELLE
Posted by Shini Lola on Tuesday, October 13, 2015
Oh yeah~ Have you guys already watch the popular horror movie - Annabelle yet? If you haven't and you wasn't plan to watch at all (maybe because you really not a fans of horror movie). Then, maybe you can refer this blog post to understand more info about the movie. =)
I'm quite excited about this movie because I'm consider a fans of The Conjuring and I blogged a review on it before (LINK HERE) I also like to watch horror doll movies such as the clown in Poltergeist I, Dead Silence, Chucky etc. Frankly, I don't think Annabelle doll was creepy at all. I only thought about its size.
First time saw Annabelle widely open her eyes!
The is the scene that Annabelle was started to moving and flying.
This was my only one favourite scene in the entire movie because other scary scene was predictable. Unfortunately, Mia's expression was too stiff when Annabelle Huggins run towards her. In fact, this wasn’t the only jump-scare scene because at one point, there was an elevator scene that “elevated” the film to its climax. We won’t spoil it for you but the elevator scene almost felt like an Easter egg in the film. There were a few close-ups on the doll as well that may create a lasting memory for the audience as the doll stares right into your eyes.
I think I would rate the movie as 7/10 because I think it's not the worst nor the best horror movies. However, compare to The Conjuring, it still need to improve a lot. For my opinion, I think the lead character - Mia's expression was too stiff. If she can provide more terrified expression I guess the movie might be better. Moreover, her decision was quite un-logically silly in the movie. Who the hell will still keep the creepy doll after someone being killed in house was holding her when she's dead. In addition, she still decided to keep the doll when she found out Annabelle was in the box and her husband mentioned he had throw away the doll. I knew she's a doll collector but doesn't means she's stupid right. Some producer of horror movies tend to give the lead character with stupid decision making but this one was so foolish. =D
Last but not least, let's check out the trailer :
