The Story Line:
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.
