I had absolutely no idea that the real Lorraine Warren died just a few months before this film was released. She passed on April 18, 2019, at the age of 92. This was definitely a nice tribute to her. Introducing Ed and Lorraine’s daughter (Judy Warren) in “Annabelle Comes Home” made this film reach a different level. This film is very refreshing by taking the possession, the terror and the horror to Warren’s home where the doll resides with just about everything else that’s evil.
It created a new atmosphere and presented us with the “haunted house” type feel. It was intense and quite the ride when things got going. The story was decent. The acting was decent. And the scares were decent. It is a decent installment to the Annabelle/The Conjuring franchise. Again, great tribute to the real Lorraine Warren. May you join and rest easy with Ed now. This film also marks the directorial debut of Gary Dauberman, who was involved with “The Nun” and the “It” remakes. adaptation and its upcoming second installment, now introducing the teen hungry installment of “The Conjuring” universe and actually delivering. Overall, “Annabelle Comes Home” is a good film that I would see again with the other Annabelle and Conjuring movies.
