*SPOILERS AHEAD*

As humans with curious minds, the topic of haunting and possessions continues to be a topic of discussion, especially in Hollywood. In October of 2014 the major motion picture, Annabelle, was released and grossed around 256 million dollars in revenue. As you can guess, the announcement of the second Annabelle movie, Annabelle: Creation, received much hype and had people’s expectations extremely high. The sequel was released in theaters on August 11, 2017 bringing in about 162 Million dollars, that is almost half the amount the original brought in. I’ve heard mixed reviews about this movie, some people say it’s better than the original but others say the sequel was much more thrilling than the original.

I had the opportunity to see this film for myself and I would agree with the critics that the movie is very thrilling and keeps you on the edge of your seat, however I did not find the film to be better than the original. The main reason I did not like this film was because I found it very hard to follow and understand. Annabelle: creation is seemingly set in the past before the original movie takes place, in this film the doll belonged to a little girl named Annabelle who passed away and her parents did everything to bring their daughter back no matter  the cost. Twelve years after their daughter had passed away they opened their home to orphan children and a nun that needed a place to continue the orphanage and keep all the girls together. As the girls get settled into their new home, Janice, an orphan struck with polio, becomes the target of the possessed doll. Overall I felt that the movie Annabelle: Creation had extraordinary acting but was not as good as the original because of the confusing plot.
