I don't usually write my thoughts or reviews, but a fellow KH13 member Sigrun kindly gave me a suggestion!
Okay lets go shall we, I'll try hard to keep the spoilers out
SO What is Annabelle Creation? If you're a fan of James Wan's horror films and have been keeping track of the 'Conjuring', the 'Insidious' and Annabelle film, then you'll know exactly what 'Annabelle Creation' is. The film is set as a prequel to the 2014 film Annabelle.
Annabelle is a the story about a doll named 'Annabelle' that has become a conduit for a malevolent presence and the 2017 film basically tells the origins of the doll and why it became haunted. Annabelle was first introduced in one of Wan's earlier film 'The Conjuring
The Horror techniques
Jump Scares: James Wan makes use of typical Jump Scare techniques, whenever there is a period of extended silence or lack of Music, brace yourself for a loud supernatural BANG. I've watched quite a few sueprnatural Horror films already so I'm somewhat desensitised to Jump scares.
The Tension: THIS is what is probably the most scary technique for directors of film and I think Annabelle Creation definitely did well to build up the tension in certain scenes. The music truly sends shivers down your spine with talented placement of bowed string sounds and the unsettling jingling of bells (which is symbolic in the film mind you)
Lighting and Music: Pretty well done, although sometimes I reckon the transition between day and night could be improved. I don't have much to comment on the music since....horror music is horror music (more Sound effects)
Remember Valak from "the Conjuring 2"?
This demonic Romanian Nun appears twice in the film...
Noticed how I put emphasis on 'Romanian', because there is another Romanian nun in the film (Sister Charlotte).
interesting to note that she's going to get her own film called 'The Nun' in 2018
READ AT YOUR OWN RISK
Overall I give the film about a 8/10 because the tension created by moving dolls and demonic nuns make me poop my pants.
Much better than 'Lights Out' which came out 2016, also by Wan
OKAY ~ have fun pplz
