Annabelle: Creation, a prequel to Annabelle (2014), is a classic horror movie made to terrify the viewers to a new extent. The movie focuses on a dollmaker and his wife, Esther, whose daughter Annabelle dies by a car accident. Later they offer to host a nun and six orphans in their home. The real horror starts once an orphan enters the prohibited room.

In addition to the horrifying Annabelle doll, the setting was in an isolated area with acres of land. In the movie, there weren’t any neighbors shown in the quiet town; where most people had a lot of land and lived a large distance from each other. The house was very old and weary which gave the feel of a haunted house.

David F. Sandberg, best known for his work on Lights Out, was chosen to direct Annabelle: Creation. While screening for the cast, the director had no nationality or age preferences. The cast was handpicked to fit in each role perfectly. Most of the cast had never starred in a horror movie before. Stephanie Sigman, who played Sister Charlotte in the movie, called down a priest to get the set blessed since she was creeped out by the doll. This was a sign of good luck since they did this before shooting Annabelle: Creation.

Sandberg prefers reality to computer-generated imagery (CGI). He used real people to play roles such as corpses and spirits. For example, for one scene Sandberg needed an amputee to play the character who had half a body. They found an amputee and covered her with special effect makeup and hair. This allowed the horror to be more real.

I thought the movie was very suspenseful and a must see! It had a lot of unexpected scenes and terrifying moments which consistently gave viewers the perfect jump scare. Throughout the whole movie, nothing seemed predictable. If you are a big fan of horror movies and the Conjuring Series, this movie is an amazing addition and should be watched. Overall, this is one of my top favorite horror movies.
