‘Annabelle’ Review: Pete Hammond On Not-So-Scary ‘The Conjuring’ Prequel

Here’s the Two-Minute Drill, Deadline readers: Pete Hammond and Dominic Patten are, for the first time in Deadline’s history, going to review movies and TV shows for us and you. Every day, we’ll have another video review of the shows and movies that matter. In two minutes or less, Pete and Dominic will give you all you need to know about these shows. Today, we feature Pete’s take on Annabelle:

Horror film ‘Annabelle’ is a prequel to 2013’s ‘The Conjuring,’ directed by John R. Leonetti. Deadline Awards Columnist Pete Hammond says the not-scary doll show has left him pining for Chucky in Child’s Play. Annabelle may still draw horror fans in this Halloween month, Pete says, but they won’t be quaking over the scares in this film.

‘Annabelle’ stars Annabelle Wallis, Ward Horton, Tony Amendola and Alfre Woodard. It is produced by Peter Safran and James Wan and executive producer is Hans Ritter. It opens this weekend and is distributed by New Line Cinema.
