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.
