Review: Annabelle, 2014, dir. John R. Leonetti

“Here’s a lesson in basic box office science: horror movies make money. When horror movies make money, they tend to beget horror movie sequels and prequels, hence the mercifully defunct Sawseries’ long-overstayed welcome. So the rare horror movie that’s both well-made and self-contained should be cherished. There’s something to be said for horror that stands alone and doesn’t demand a follow up, which is why last year’s The Conjuring is such a gem. It’s as clear an example of a one-off as any; how can the travails of the Perron family be split into a multi-part narrative?” (Via Movie Mezzanine.)
