ANNABELLE: CREATION (MA15+), How a little doll became a little devil US, 109 min
It’s origin story time for the demonic little doll from The Conjuring. The time is the 1950s, the place is an orphanage for young girls, and Annabelle is having the time of her afterlife picking off the residents one by one. The pacing can get way too slow, and the gaps between big frights are way too wide. Nevertheless, this middle-of-the-road chiller still carries enough creepy oomph to have plenty of horror fans waking in the middle of the night.
