Goofs

The film suggests at the end that Linda, the blonde protagonist, later became Annabelle Higgins, the cultist killer who murdered her parents in the original Annabelle and called on a demon to possess the Annabelle doll after killing herself. This is an odd and clumsy route for the story to take for several reasons. In the original Annabelle film, it was implied that Annabelle was the Higgins' daughter her entire life. She was even shown as a very small girl at one point in a family picture, much younger than Linda was by the time the Higgins supposedly adopted her in this film. Moreover if Linda/Annabelle had lived from preteen years to young womanhood possessed by a demon, there would have been ample signs of demonic possession years before she disappeared for a year to join first the hippies, then a Satanic cult. She most likely would have killed way before then too. The idea that a demon possessed a Christian child for likely more than a decade, showed no evidence of its existence, and did all this just so it could kill two people at the end of its possession is extremely far-fetched.

Weak, Cliché, I WANT MY MONEY BACK
18 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just AWFUL. I went to this picture a fan of horror movies and really wanting to be scared, on the edge of my seat, scream, and do all of the things one does when watching a well put together scary movie. This was not one of those. It was littered with cliche's, to an embarrassing degree. I didn't jump once. The story was weak. The writing was laughable. Was this even a horror film?I want my money back!
