Rated R for horror violence and terror

Review:

Annabelle: Creation is a better film than it deserves to be.  Horror clichรฉs run amok in a script that seem more interested in moving from set up to set up than telling a coherent story.  Director David F. Sandberg doesn’t seem to know the meaning of efficiency as his movie is a bloated overlong hodgepodge of things we’ve seen before.  Again, it’s a decent horror film, there are far worse films in the genre that’s for sure, but it’s slightly frustrating because it feels like there is a better film in there somewhere.  The decision to cast Anthony LaPaglia & Miranda Otto seemed like it’d give the film a bit of credibility but the script moves them to the sidelines and barely uses them at all.  What we’re left with is an ensemble film with kid actors who do the best they can but it’s never terribly interesting or engaging.  Annabelle: Creation is the very definition of a wait for cable type of film.
