Billed as a spin-off of The Con­jur­ing, the film op­er­ates more like a shoddy brand ex­ten­sion; it cost five times less than its pre­de­ces­sor, and the slashed bud­get shows — both in the econ­omy cast­ing and in the over-lit, some­times hideous dig­i­tal im­agery.

— A.A. Dowd, AV Club Annabelle drifts away from th­ese po­ten­tially in­ter­est­ing el­e­ments into a more pre­dictable col­lage of frights, demons and flick­er­ing lights, a grab bag of set pieces, red her­rings and fa­mil­iar oc­cult tropes that never add up to much.

— Philippa Hawker, Syd­ney Morn­ing Her­ald
