Coming from the makers of The Conjuring
Annabelle opens with a trio of nursing students talking into a handy cam, as they share the story (as told to them by a psychic) of the weird redhead doll sitting next to them on a chair, wearing the satisfied expression of a lunatic on LSD.
The film then goes into flashback to a year ago, when TV still had antennae you needed to adjust, to a couple who are expecting a child.
Miya (Annabelle Wallis) and John Gordon (Ward Horton) are your average, upper middle class white couple who seem to have a perfect life yet, an air of foreboding hangs over them.
Miya is heavily pregnant while John is trying to work his way through medical school, which causes him enough anxiety to say everything that one isn’t supposed to say to a pregnant woman.
But his aren’t the only behavioural problems the couple has to deal with. Miya likes to collect porcelain dolls that either play music or laugh like Cruella De Ville inhaled helium.
Miya places these dolls in the nursery that has been prepared for the new baby.
One day, John brings home a doll, a supposed collector’s item, for Miya to complete her collection. No points for guessing who this doll turns out to be.
Predictably, strange things start happening. Miya begins to see shadows and hear voices. As it turns out, the doll, called Annabelle, is possessed by the spirit of a woman who was involved in an occult and committed suicide.
The couple try to get rid of Annabelle but when they move to another house to escape what they think is a curse, they find Annabelle at the bottom of a cardboard box — she won’t go away until she gets their baby’s soul. For more do watch ANNABELLE at your nearest Multiplex.
