"I like your dolls.."

First of all, I realize I've disappeared from Letterboxd for a long time.. It was completely unintentional, but as work had taken over my life - it became hard to watch films, document them here, and write warrenisweird.

Be that as it may, I actually found time to squeeze seeing Annabelle into my busy schedule.. and I learned really quick that I slightly wasted my time with making this my first 'review' in a long time..why? let's break it down:

as a whole - Annabelle was a terrible film. I understand that writing a prequel isn't always simple, because it's not easy by any means.. but what I mean is the following: It wasn't 'scary' and relied solely on jumpscares. When it wasn't jumpscares, which it mainly was, it was just loud crashing sounds to make you jump [so....jumpscares..] The acting was fairly wooden as well, feeling like the actors were reading off a teleprompter and screaming as loud as fucking possible when needing to be "scared". The only 'good' actor was the baby - and that was probably by accident.

sigh ~ I'm sorry, James Wan, I still love you.. write me another SAW movie and then we'll talk, okay? I need a drink. stat.
