Annabelle Comes Home has some excellent spooks, but it lacks a purpose. At the end of the second act, I was having a good time with the movie. Then the movie ended. This movie’s least scary and least inventive sequence is the climax. It feels super anti-climactic and jarring.
Before this movie, there was an even split of good Conjuring movies and shit Conjuring movies. Even with all of the problems I have with this flick, it is still definitely on the good side. It is well shot and the acting is surprisingly good, but the best part of the movie (and the only part of the movie that I will remember in a few months) is Bob. Bob is the best. I recommend this movie for Bob, and Bob alone. Bob’s presence in this movie bumps it’s score up one.
