Doc Rotten joins Dave Dreher to review Annabelle: Creation (2017) the fourth in a series of films establishing The Conjuring Universe. The film is directed by David F. Sandberg and features Stephanie Sigman, Miranda Otto, Anthony LaPaglia, Lulu Wilson, Talitha Bateman, Kerry O’Malley, Philippa Coulthard, Grace Fulton, and Samara Lee. Much like Ouija: Origin of Evil, Annabelle: Creation is a prequel to a far lesser film, escalating the horror, screams, and fun. These two films also share the young star, Lulu Wilson. The film follows a doll maker and his wife who take in a group of orphans 12 years after their daughter dies tragically at an early age. One young girl, Janice (Talitha Bateman), discovers the hidden secrets of the house unleashing a once-vanquished evil … and, of course, the Annabelle doll. But, the film is far more than that. Listen to hear what Doc has to say about Annabelle: Creation.
