Annabelle

(2014) ★★★

Sky Movies Premiere: PREMIERE Friday 24 July, 4.45pm and 8pm

Ward Horton presents pregnant wife Annabelle Wallis with the vintage doll she’s always wanted. Be careful what you wish for… The doll looks hideous from whatever angle it’s viewed, and it’ll look even worse after coming into contact with satanic cult killers. The Association’s charming, chiming late-60s hit Cherish accompanies a carefully composed occult shocker that looks even classier in the wake of so much found-footage dross. A prequel of sorts to events in The Conjuring, it’s set in California at the time of the Charles Manson murder trial. So, on both counts, we know bad things are bound to happen. Even so, the blood-draining scare around the 50-minute mark is a wowser worthy of Ringu or Kairo. When this one says ‘Boo!’ we jump. The only surprise is that the traumatised couple consult a priest, not a shrink.
