Annabelle Comes Home

A SCENE from Annabelle Comes Home

DEMONOLOGISTS Ed and Lorraine Warren keep the possessed doll Annabelle in what is supposed to be a safe room, yet she awakens evil spirits in the room and eyes a new target — the Warrens’ 10-year-old daughter and her friends. Directed by Garry Dauberman, the film stars Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, and Mckenna Grace. IndieWire’s Eric Kohn writes, “The movie joins It and Stranger Things as the latest resurrection of the ’80s-kids-in-peril routine, and it’s not exactly aiming to reinvent the genre. Still, it’s something of a relief that the movie pushes beyond the usual self-seriousness of these movies to allow for a more colorful array of characters and some modicum of humor surrounding their plight.”
