Following the success of the first Conjuring movie in 2013, Warner Bros wasted no time in delivering a spinoff. 2014’s Annabelle explored the origins of the doll that demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren dealt with at the beginning of The Conjuring. Three years later, Annabelle: Creation turned back the clock even further on the entity’s past, but the latest movie, Annabelle Comes Home, takes us back to the Conjuring-era time period.
We’re a little over a week away away from Annabelle Comes Home being released in theaters, but social media reactions for the third Annabelle movie are now coming in. Starting off, CinemaBlend’s own Eric Eisenberg commended Annabelle Comes Home for both its story and scares, marking another solid entry for the Conjuring franchise.
Erik Davis from Fandango was also complimentary towards Annabelle Comes Home, calling it the horror equivalent of 1987’s Adventures in Babysitting.
Dread Central’s Jonathan Barkan didn’t go into as much detail with his take on Annabelle Comes Home, but suffice it to say he enjoyed the threequel too.
Silas Lesnick from Moviebill was also a fan of Annabelle Comes Home across the board, which is good to hear for the horror fans out there looking for some cinematic frights this summer.
Feel free to look around for other Annabelle Comes Home reactions online, but going off these comments, it looks like not only is the movie enjoyable on its own, it’s the best of the Annabelle trilogy and one of the most solid entries in the entire Conjuring franchise.
Set shortly after The Conjuring’s opening scene, Annabelle Comes Home sees the doll awakening the evil spirits in Ed and Lorraine Warren’s artifacts room and targeting the Warrens’ daughter, Judy, and her babysitters, Mary Ellen and Daniela. Along with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprising Ed and Lorraine, respectively, the cast includes Mckenna Grace, Madison Iseman, Katie Sarife, Stephen Blackheart, Steve Coulter, Samara Lee and Paul Dean.
Annabelle Comes Home scares its way into theaters on June 26. If you’re curious about what other movies come out later this year, head to our 2019 release schedule.
