Hey, everyone! Lots of bedlum happening in my own chaotic sector of the multiverse here. No matter, one of my friends (who I’m addressing by their tumblr name) was eager to submit a review involving the rather new-ish horror film from Britain called, “The Mirror”. While my opinions differ on this film, my guest is the one doing the review and not me. Rather than blabbing away on an intro segment like I always do, I figure I’ll let him jump right into it.
Since I’m working entire weekends throughout October, I’m still figuring out a schedule so I can deliver reviews on time. Don’t worry, things won’t be so screwy next week. Although, I’ll probably just post what I’m writing really early in the morning anyway. In the meantime, please enjoy a review of the 2014 horror film, “Annabelle.”
Without further ado, the floor belongs to Bound Incubus (one of my friends, you may recognize him from a previous guest review.)
Note: The opinions in this review might not reflect my opinions on the film.
Film: Annabelle (2014) – Warner Bros. Pictures.
So I recently saw Annabelle, actually on the day it was released because I was very excited to see this movie. I’d seen The Conjuring in theaters and it was pretty scary and very few horror movies make me jump and yell, which it accomplished it very well. I had high expectations for Annabelle and I was not disappointed.
As advertised, this is a prequel somewhat to The Conjuring, which featured a small story before the main movie about the doll Annabelle that two nurses and their roommate had and were being terrorized by before Ed and Lorraine Warren took the doll into their posession. This movie takes place one year before the nurses obtain the doll and how Annabelle came to be. I’ll talk about the real story, and how it relates to the movie as well as discrepencies to give the full effect of the movie.
