Before The Conjuring, there was Annabelle. Capable of unspeakable evil, the actual Annabelle doll exists locked up in an occult museum in Connecticut -- visited only by a priest who blesses her twice a month. In this supernatural thriller from producer James Wan, Annabelle's story begins before the evil was unleashed. John Form (Ward Horton -- The Wolf of Wall Street) has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia (Annabelle Wallis -- X Men: First Class) -- a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia's delight with Annabelle doesn't last long. On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now...Annabelle.]]>

Aside from the movie review, I'd like to talk about the physical product. When I received this in the mail, the case of the movie was broken. It wasn't that big of a deal, as I was quick to change the case with another case.
The lead actress is actually named Annabelle Wallis. Coincidence?
Overall, I wasn't fond of this movie as I found it was predictable and cheap with its scares. You have the Annabelle doll from The Conjuring (a better movie, in my opinion) and the backstory to that doll. Should be a recipe for a good story, right? Dolls freak people out, so do possessions & cults, and this movie has all three.
The acting is actually superb, with Wallis standing out as a loving wife and future mother in the late 1960s. Another standout, Tony Amendola, whom fans of the Stargate TV Series will recognize, plays Father Perez. He attempts to help the situation, but of course can do little to alleviate the severe evil lurking inside the Annabelle doll.
In summary, young pregnant couple moves into a new house. Husband finds an old doll that used to belong to his wife, buys it, and wife displays it in the baby's room. Crazy murderous cult people break into home and are shot by police, but crazy cult lady is holding the doll at the time of her death. Crazy cult lady's evil spirit passes to the doll, and weird things begin to happen. Cheap scares, predictable thrills, yadda yadda. It's run-of-the-mill horror.
Annabelle is like a mild but still deadly version of Chucky from Child's Play influencing people and causing strange as well as deadly occurance's to take place. Like popcorn sitting on a turned off stove top burner to pop and more. I do not want to give too many details and ruin it for everyone but this is a surprisingly good movie better than I expected
