My personal Thoughts
Well I think this movie was not good as much I expected. As a third sequal to Annabelle it should be more scary and have a good story line. But this movie disappoints me very much. Even on theater this movie didn’t do any magic. Acting was good and set up of scenes was amazing like conjuring universe always show late 80’s or 90’s. Their were no good scary jump scenes and no good horror effects. Even last 2 part of Anabelle was very nice movie with good story line.
I don’t know why this movie was so bad may be this movie is directed by new director didn’t able to do those things like our old director from Conjuring Universe John R. Leonetti directed older movies of Conjuring Universe. I think in future may be we will get more amazing movie by Conjuring Universe. This movie was as bad like The Nun movie. these two movies were not so good. And in the end of movie their was no Easter egg scene because all movies of Conjuring Universe have after credit scenes. I hope so this movie of Anabelle sequal should not be last part. But I like best character in movie was Judy as played by Mckenna Grace. she shown so innocent ans sweet type and her acting was great, even she also apperead in Disney movies when she was 6 years old. These are only my opinions from my side and what do u think about this movie?
These actors are strong enough to carry their own movie… which they basically do. The Warrens are only present for small portions of the film, and don’t help much in the way of “defeating Annabelle.” In this movie they didn’t use them too much may be if they use in the whole movie. It would be great movie with great story.
Another movie where everything happens in one night. A better execution, but still an issue.
Some aspects of these ghosts are true, while the plot at large seems to be fictionalized. This is increasingly common with The Conjuring movies. While the Conjuring namesake films and the first Annabelle movie were based on real events, the latest movies have been just fiction, no real events in it just some anti cursed things were real. In real life still at Warren’s home priest visit in a week at cursed room and do exorcism. I would say you can watch this movie if you are fan of Conjuring Universe. But otherwise this movie is not a great horror movie. I will rate this movie 6/10.
