The story is weak. The sequel Annabelle: Creation (2017) is better, but is still not one of the best horror films.

It's like the writers wanted to make a demonic doll movie but forgot to include the doll and only featured the demon.

I was disappointed with Annabelle. I had high hopes for the film, but it was a major let down. It’s a prequel and spin-off to The Conjuring films, and is based on the Ed and Lorraine Warren story of the possessed doll named Annabelle. The doll causes a disturbance to a young family and wants one of their souls. The family tries to find a way to stop that from happening. The film was way too predictable. The ending could have been guessed halfway through the film. The jumpscares were not scary, but rather comical. Overall, the film was not scary at all. It was disappointing because this was the film that came after The Conjuring. The Conjuring was a great piece of work, and Annabelle was the follow up. It could never top the first film and it didn’t. Although, I do recommend this film to anyone that doesn’t like horror films but just wants to watch one anyways. It’s not a terrible horror film, but it’s not one of the best.

For the most part, Annabelle was a pretty spot on horror film. It captured the classic fear of spooky dolls along with horrors throughout the ages. However, unless you're frightened easily don't expect too much from this film. Although many of the scenes were well executed, they were way over played and done too many times before. The narrative of ancient items haunting people of the present is a story line that has grown old. But, if you're just looking for a film that will make you hide beneath a blanket but still get some sleep at night, this is the movie for you. 3.5/5 stars

I liked this one, and yes it came off as a somewhat weak precursor to the events of THE
CONJURING, but on it's own merits it provides just the added amount of terror that assist one in enjoying a good horror movie, without going vastly overboard.

Fun movie. Tries to hard to be scary when it's actually not.

Wow, I disagree with the negative comments below--just shows you shouldn't trust APL customer's opinions, because everyone's got different taste. I thought this was vastly superior to THE CONJURING--and was a good, scary 'possessed doll' movie. Also appreciated that the makers didn't settle for the (apparently obligatory) usual 'shock' ending that these days is anything but shocking due to overuse. Good acting, directing, some jolting scenes and tension is maintained throughout. Recommended!

I dont think this was all that bad. There were a few effective scares but over all it was been there done that and did not rellay offer anything new. Just stuff we have scene in a gazillion other horror movies. But still like i said above it was not completey bad. Good to wacth if you have nothing bettet to do.
