The third in the Conjuring sub-series details the delivery of the haunted doll to the husband & wife care keepers (again played by Patrick Wilson & Vera Fermiga) to their home fortress of possessed items. Going away on some other adventure, their daughter (McKenna Grace from Gifted) is left w/a babysitter (Madison Iseman from the Jumanji reboots) & her best friend (Katie Serife). Of course even though the spooked refuge resides behind a clearly locked door & Annabelle is inside an enclosed glass case with a warning sign, Serife, who has a dead father in her rearview mirror, decides to broach the room & unleash hell as merely being in Annabelle’s presence can animate evil spirits to disturb the living which this film’s run time devotes a good chunk of to. Like the other ‘I wish it was better’ La Llorona outing, there was a clear set-up for a wonderful, sustained psychic & nerve throbbing scarefest to be had but writer/director Gary Dauberman (who has written all 3 Annabelle films & The Nun) loves diving into The Exorcist’s well (right from the beginning text crawl & the treated still shots during the end credits lifted right from The Exorcist’s trailers) but never makes the film unique or memorable leaving the audience with an overly familiar feeling.

To know that somehow the exact contrary is happening, you need not be a horror fan. The strengths of Annabelle Comes Home are not unpredictability. For a newbie, however, Gary Dauberman delivers very good results in a consistent rhythm of dismantling many delicious jumping fears. His excellent camera control and technique for continuous frightening are at the heart.
The movie opens with Ed and Lorraine, the daredevil duo, bringing the doll home. Together with many other memories from your infamous cases, they lock it up in their basement. The room is packed with fantastic goodies that wait for all hell to be ripped apart.
In terms of performance, child star Mckenna Grace does her nice job even during the terrible turn of events with her restrained act. The remainder of the cast is good. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson are screen-limited but their absence is scarcely felt with too much-uninterrupted action. Also, the Victorian setting of Warren's house and his subtle dark colours. 'Annabelle Returns Home' is a scare-fest textbook that would not complicate or preach against the gods and the demons without keeping the vow of hissing.
