    Annabelle: Creation

    A sequence of bloodless mildly scary moments happening to a bunch of annoying kids, revolving around a derpy-looking doll that doesn't actually do anything.

    So, let's start this by saying this film is both the most Tarantino-esque and the least Tarantino-esque film in his filmography. Confused yet? So am I, don't worry. Bloody gory fun that Jan still doesn't get? Not really! Off-screen deaths and some mild blood make this the most reserved film in Tarantino's filmography, so much so that it could be argued it's a film that feels like he didn't make it. And to that I…
