After setting up the rules that Sarah and Paul have applied to remain safe, with keeping an only entrance that is protected with a key Sarah or Paul wore around the neck, and maintaining minimum nighttime tour, the two kin started to set up the sense of familiarity and became with one another. One day, Stanley, Travis’s dog started barking aggressively and hunts the unseen presence from the woods. Travis followed his dog deeper in the woods just before Stanley’s barking abruptly ceases. Travis insisted to Will and Paul that he perceived something from the woods, and so they decided to go back home, as Paul insisted Stanley knows the forest will find his way back home. That evening, Will seemed to contradict with the story he told to Paul earlier regarding what he and also Kim were doing before finding the dumped house. This makes Paul to start distrusting Will.


The Writers View:

This movie is a post-apocalyptic film and for the remaining 20 minutes the film showed promises, good mood and visuals. But, as it goes, it crawls on repeated same shots and also it shocks the viewers after the hour passed by without anything happened. At this phase, the audiences were left thinking when the actual story will start. The plot elements were starting but then suddenly abandoned. A bit of mystery was a good idea for it heightens the audience fear, but still, it will to that point when you will need the actual narrative of the story to draw and have a figure of it all together. The ending really did force the climax.

jigsaw1
Criminal Edgar Munsen was hunted by the policemen from the rooftop, where he activated the triggering mechanism just before being non-fatally shot by the Police Det. Halloran with his fellow officers.
Then, five people were held in prison in the barn, each of them with the metal noose just around the neck. The tape recorder from John Kramer explained they should give the offering of blood and need to confess their offenses. The chains started pulling them to a wall of the buzzsaws. Four handles to survive by slashing themselves on to the blades as the offering of blood, and then a guy who was lifeless during the main of the game appeared to be dead.

The following test divulges that crowd member Carly and caused the deceased of the asthmatic lady by stealing the purse that had her inhaler inside for emergency use. To rescue the remaining people from being dangled, she should inject herself with a needle, one that contained an antidote to the poison in her scheme, first a saline solution, while the other one is a potent acid. The volatile crowd member Ryan finally stabs Carly with the other three to rescue himself, melting the face and murdering her.


The Writers View:

Jigsaw history repeats itself of going back to the old roots by being simple, with the basic traps and the mind blowing end. Unfortunately, there is a trap that is not so likable here and it is the involvement of lasers. It relies too much on the CGI, the stakes were high and the practical traps were way more creative and fun. With tricks, chains, wires, a puppet, and a traditional pig head, the movie will surely leave a smile on your face.

In 1943, the doll-maker Samuel Mullins with his wife Esther grieved for the death of Annabelle, their 7-year-old daughter, “Bee”, who died in an auto accident.
In 1955, 12 years after, the Mullins unlocked their home to give shelter to the six girls and for Sister Charlotte, who were left homeless with the shutting down of their orphanage.
Despite having been informed not to go inside Bee’s locked room, Janice, the young orphan disabled by polio, was awakened by the noise, discovering the note that says “find me”, and slips into the room, that has oddly become unlocked. She discovered the key in the closet of Bee and opens it, where she saw an eerie ceramic doll. This doll innocently releases the powerful demon that started terrorizing the girls, exhibiting the special interest with Janice.

During the second evening, the demon continued in tormenting Janice, informing the real form and stating that it wanted her soul. Even though she attempted to be away using the stairlift, she was left severely harmed when caught by that demon and thrown down from the second ground going to the first ground. The following day, Janice is confined to the wheelchair and was dragged to a hut. The demon takes Bee’s form, effectively possesses her. Linda, one from the other homeless and Janice’s best buddy, notices the shifts with her behavior and then admitted to Samuel that it seemed Janice had creep to Bee’s bedroom and discovered the doll two prior evenings. Shortly after the revelation of Linda, the obsessed Janice, who is now walking, transformed into a demon and harshly kills Samuel.


The Writers View:

This is a prequel of Annabelle and was the back story of The Conjuring. Nobody asked for a movie like this, but, thankfully and surprising, it is right.
The creation of Annabelle has no business of being this so good. True enough, it is odd that this bizarre film was released within the year like Ouija. Both films follow up the terrible primary films. Both were prequels of the terrible initial films. Both should not have been made and both were extremely efficient horror movies. The similarities do not even end there since there are so many similarities of a good movie.
