Save your money fellows and watch toy story 4 instead

Omg it was so worth watching this movie !

The movie is juat ordinary, all scary scenes are predictable and nothing innovative from James Wan's conjuring movies.

Really enjoyed the two 'The Conjuring' films for the same reasons to each other, that they were well-made, well-crafted, suspenseful, entertaining and had genuine shocks.

Waste of time .

I highly recommend it.

but they somehow managed to make such a small set piece so entertaining and interesting.

The whole Bobs got balls character arc was very entertaining.

Well sensory over load scares, but predictable horror movie cliches.

Don't waste your valuable time and money on this piece of trash.

Please dont waste your time!!!...

There's plenty of surprisingly suspenseful scenes.

I get a jump scare here and there but its ineffective if we can see them coming and also if it relies on being loud and super slow to shock viewers.

Entertaining to a point.

Entertaining horror movie .

The movie has a nice story, fun and enjoyable meaning the movie is less than scarier compare to Creation.

if u love a dumb cliche and lots of jumpscares then this is for you.

It was pretty boring as horror movie it wasn't even scary, the visuals were not very good , we're in 21 century and special effects can't be so tragic...

Some are just decent films that provide the same predictable supernatural scares.

1hr and 10mins and i got so bored i had to stop watching because i was falling asleep.

I really enjoyed it.

The plot is formulaic and as you'd expect, it involves a baby-sitter, her friend, and of course a young innocent girl who is the pin that holds everything together.

zzz 2/10

Please don't waste your time!

James Wan's films are empty and mixture of horror devices that used in successful Western and Eastern horror films in the past.

With its bland characters, predictable story, and insipid plot, Annabelle Comes Home sits at a 3/10.

As a beginner to the franchise, I really enjoyed it.

Also, the character's motivations for their actions are really dumb and overall the film is not well paced, as there were many times where the movie went on really slow.

But most of all, I liked the fact that there were scenes when one would expect something scary to happen (I often had to say "really, so predictable?!

First 60 min.. BORING Me and my friend get scared easily and we barely screamed twice or 3 times

The 3rd installment gets what the first 2 films got it wrong, a fast paced movie with multiple POVs each just as terrifying.

This movie sucked so bad that it made fall asleep for about 10 minutes.

The plot is also overused and boring

I love the conjuring universe, like I love all things horror and this was just so boring.

After years and years of cliches and predictability in the horror category there are still movies like this filled with stupid jumpscares, suspense that goes nowhere, empty dialogues etc etc and still have big budgets in order to create crap!


Slow starting, irritating creepy little girl, no deaths, only a small amount of gotcha suspense.. DONT waste your hard earned $$ on this

I honest to god reckon I only laughed at the car scene with the Warrens, because besides the fact that they only appear for around 8 mins the 'scary' scenes were tediously long and boring.

There is no story, there is no end, there is no scary parts.

The film delivers its creepy, suspenseful, eerie, and dark plot in an old school "Conjuring" style, which is great.

The use of foreshadowing, the same tactics for trying to build scares, and the trailers have spoiled much of the suspenseful parts for me and given the rushed component this sometimes blew through the scary parts too quickly to allow the audience to stew in the intensity of the moment.

The film becomes boring fast.

No story is in this suspance..infact very less amount of horror..very bad..only comedy

Thankfully though, it's well-made and decently entertaining throughout thanks to Dauberman trying something different with the scares, and the good characters and performances.

I did really enjoy that, as it kept it from being boring.

Waste of money...

Some parts were actually quite scary, but othwise an empty storyline that leaves you wanting more, and maybe your money back .

The rest of the film was boring, slow and really quite predictable.

The film is, at times, truly frightening, and extremely entertaining.

This movie, unlike previous films lacks a proper storyline and character development, as it jumps straight into giving pointless jump-scares to make your typical moviegoers go "WOW THAT SCARED ME, an object was behind me and now its in front of me!

This movie could have easily been so much more than the bland tepid two hour jump scare montage.

The characters have predictable way of acting/thinking, where there is always a menace character unleashing the evil out of ignorance or being playful.

Very boring throughout the film.

Very Bad, Murky, Dark, Dull....

I don't know, it was so weak and predictable that made me almost quit at some point.

Leaving us with a standard, unoriginal, and boring movie that could have been put out by any studio or director.

Waste of time.

This movie has no story whatsoever.

Where the movie fails is in the script that is very lazy, about the horror scenes, only the last one was scary, the others were very clichés and predictable.

Super boring, nothing goes on.

Combined with a cheesy love story, a ware wolf and the most drawn out "story" (or lack there of), I just feel like this was a film created for some extra cash.

Plz don't watch, Pathetic and boaring as hell, don't waste your time.

It is worth watching?

Annabelle Comes Home (2019) - It is just pretty lame and boring!

All the films in the whole conjuring universe have really mastered how to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole film.

Save your money.

It was intense and quite the ride when things got going.

The acting in the film is well done, but the bad script makes the characters in the film a bit stupid about making cliché mistakes that stupid characters often make in a horror film, so that you as a viewer don't really care about them.

I mean, it seems like a masterpiece in comparison to those; it's actually engaging, features a variety of successful scares and centres around compelling characters.

The movies has a lot of jump scares and keeps you on the edge of the seats.

Im starting to see a pattern in these horror movies, they seem to start off good, and settle on a rushed and empty ending.

A visually nice movie, but boring and generic in terms of entertainment.

Its boring.

It does sometimes get a little too overt for its own good - though, the overall series is no stranger to bold, effects-based 'creatures', either - but it's refreshing, and sadly so, for a film like this to not be made of abrasive, repetitive, 'cattle-prod' stuff.

This is the first movie i've seen in The Conjuring franchise (strange to start with this one, i know), and it was fun at it's best and boring at it's worst.

This movie and very boring and predictable with the most annoying character getting more screen time then she deserved.

Save your money.

Clever scares, No Story .

It's not a film because it has no plot.

Surprised to know that it's been rated R for "horror, violence and terror", while I thought it should be a fine example for a decently entertaining PG-13 horror.

This film has the most predictable and absolutely mind-boggling slow set ups.

In the world of horror where most films are low budget I am always happy to find a film that will actually make me jump a few times as most of the stuff out their just supplies blood, gore and predictable murders while we must endure horrible acting, one liners and corny scenes.

Some scenes dragged on forever with no purpose.

A colossal waste of time and money.

Like the whole story is just stupid, we got a boring protagonist who barely does anything due to the fact that she's just an innocent child who can't do anything about the ghosts.

Even more exciting than Creation.

Sometimes you read reviews and think some people are wrong when they say a film is bad but wow, this film was boring.

Anyway, I must say - this film had me on the edge of my seat.

It was a really entertaining horror film, with interesting concepts - and dare I say it, pretty creepy.

Frightful and suspenseful.. I love a creative directing movie with small bits that add to the artistry of a horror film.. bravo.. The acting is good and the story keeps you interested throughout the movie.. The ending was a tad ........

And here's the reason: instead of deciding to go for shlock the writer and director took their time with this film and developed a slow build that was just so cool.

very disappointing, if u expect horror from this don't bother, keep your money and see somthing else, this is not horror not even thriller, is more like comedy with some sort of mistery.. Totally waste of time.. Scooby Doo is more scarier than this

Coming from a 19 y/o: this film made me wanna puke from how expectedly cliché was.

The good horror films these days rely on an intriguing story and making you think about what you just saw (take Hereditary for example).

Slow, dull and boring and wasn't scary at all.

Pacing is painfully slow while the plot remains consistently uninteresting.

As from then, movie is very slow with very few jump scares here and there and the plot is easily predictable.

Four of us last night as huge fan of James Wan as director and all characters we seen in previous series were expecting way better and left the theater midnight with disappointment.

The atmosphere of the movie makes the watching even more enjoyable.

Save your money 💰 .

Just kinda an empty addition to the series.

It has a really strange, somewhat disjointed pacing that practically paints most of it as an extended build-up for a seemingly fifteen-minute finale.

Main problem is that it is a very predictable movie with a simple plot.

Waste of money .

But this movie was just a honest waste of time and money in my opinion.

I love The Conjuring series, but this was just to boring and the worst one of all.

Why waste our time with this excuse of a "horror film".

Waste of time .

Worst movie I've ever seen in my life ..

They spent a really long time focusing on the three characters that this haunting was going to happen to and in the end just made it really boring.

Aside from that the movie is incredibly dull.

Don't waste your precious time watching this film.

And had an enjoyable plot!

It was very slow in the first 45-50 minutes and it did not have many scary scenes as much as other annabelle movies.

Engaging and well-rounded characters, as well as a playfully nostalgic haunted-house premise, mean that Annabelle Comes Home ranks among the best of the series.

Most of the chills exhume from ghostly apparitions gently moving in the background or Dauberman's slow panning of the camera.

Don't waste your money.

Please don't waste your time and money on this movie I feel like I'm watching the same hackneyed plot over and over again I absolutely believe that this movie is pure chaos and a great waste of time

It is boring, plan, and unenthusiastic!

Katie Sarife is trapped in that room full of possessed artifacts and objects yet nothing happens to her, just things falling or a piano playing or she sees a ghost etc.I was really disappointed.

Literally, it's all some sort of variation of the following:Character walks down the hall -> A strange noise occurs-> Character slowly follows that noise -> Score starts to become louder -> Character checks something and camera closes in on the actor's face -> Score becomes heavier and louder with the introduction of bass -> Another noise occurs behind the character -> Camera pans with the character and nothing happens -> Character continues to check on something -> Another noise, another pan, nothing again -> Score is reaching its climax -> Character continues doing the same thing -> Final noise, pan, and then one out of the two predictable jump scares happen: BOO!

Probably the most boring movie of any type i have ever watched,the first half was so boring i almost fell asleep+all the jumpscares and stuff were predictable.

The scenery is also pretty boring compared to that castle in the Nun or the houses of the Conjuring and Annabelle: Creation that seemed to be in the middle of nowhere.

Except for the first 15-20 minutes, which are used to solely provide backstory to the three main characters, every single scene is an uninspired, unimaginative, anticipated, and tedious build-up to a jump scare that heavily relies on an exaggeratedly loud sound, and someone screaming.

It seems like a boring teenage movie.

In the other hand is a entertaining (not) scary movie.

I thought it was a little boring.

Although I'm not the biggest fan of the story of Annabelle Comes Home, I pretty much enjoyed it.

Everything was predictable except the ending because I could not believe it was going to be finished in such a mediocre way!

I don't think that it is the best in this series, but it is definitely enjoyable.

It's boring, slow, did not meet it's potential of the previews in any way.

gets boring after a while.

After seeing Annabelle which admittedly was kind of boring and Creation which I thought was mediocre I didn't expect much from this one.

Don't waste your money and time for this.

However, this 2019 movie "Annabelle Comes Home" was boring.

I couldn't believe that they baled out and sold out to this cheap, boring and predictable rut.

The movie had some decent jump scares, however, there was no story, no plot.

Which has that cliché were a character would go into the basement after passing several warning signs to keep out.

The babysitting scenario with her friend, and new found boyfriend being caught up in this horrific situation was entertaining.

This movie relies on jump scares and ended up not being scary,it is also pretty predictable.

Boring dialogues and consistent jump scares of a movie .


Final Say -A mostly forgettable Conjuring spin-off that feels like the death-knell to Annabelle standalone adventures, Annabelle Comes Home has a few neat moments and some nice Easter Eggs for fans of the universe but there but fleeting instances in an otherwise tiresome and lame attempt to make more money from a worn down entity.

It wasn't a bad film but it's bark was worse than it's bight and as is so often the case, it all seemed a bit cliche.

All in all, it is an enjoyable movie that has good scares, funny moments, though lacking story.

However due to the large amount of tension and teasing the audience with jummpscares the film did have fairly slow pacing during the first half.

Despite a couple inventive set pieces, these sequences quickly become tedious.

Boring and comedy movie.

No story, no direction, no flow, no speed Total waste of time.

But if you watched the trailer, the world's most predictable plot emerges again.

I gotta say that several times I wanted to leave the theater.

dont waste time n or money for this one.

It was really slow and too many editing mistakes that were way to obvious.

The movie has a predictable and generic plot, no change in setting, no climax and all jump scares with build ups we have seen in the previous movies.

Is this a horror movie or a coming of age film?

Wow that´s a boring movie .

The story line was enjoyable & simple.

The plot does take a little bit of time to develop and maybe spends too much time trying to develop some of the characters before anything really exciting does happen.

It was soo boring .

Everybody gets attacked by different spirits, like Bob dealing with the hellhound, Mary Ellen getting dragged away by Charon the boatman or whatever we want to call the ferryman with coins on his eyes and Judy has to deal with Annabelle herself, who just up and got in bed with her.

Enjoyed it .

While the movie is slow sometimes, the feature of Ed and Laurene Warren, even though they were just bit parts in this one, made it worth it.

The two main actors from the conjuring are barely in this film, it starts out strong with them, then quickly goes down hill in being slow, predictable and weak through out with out them.

All of the jumpscares are also very predictable, which just kills your fear.

You will forget about Annabelle 3 as soon as you leave the theater.

The dialogue is no improvement too, very awkward-sounding and banal, doing little with developing rather clichéd characters.

Don't waste your time or money in this movie.

From start to finish, it was suspenseful!

Nearly fell asleep .

It was an entertaining film with your typical Conjuring like scares.

I jumped a few times but the characters weren't strong (they didn't play off the Warren's daughter enough; the brunette had a good backstory but you hardly learned about her till later in the movie), the story setting was boring (cupcakes?

Ed and Lorren Warrens appears only 10 min in the movie and the rest is just a waste of time.

The first hour is little bit boring and slow.. For horror fans you just find out that most of the scenes are familiar and nothing new!!

The film tries, it tries or it si trying I can't quite decide, it tries to be original in places which si great but then again is the usual predictable in others, even so when I predicted what was about to happed I was asked if I had seen the film before.

The film needed more time to really build on its characters rather than slow cheap scares.

I have stated committed to the entire Conjuring franchise and watched all the Annabelle movies along with the conjuring movies and The Nun The last movie created, The Nun, was the worst movie so far in the franchise The movie tried to line its plot with humor and portrayed the demons as weak and stupid in past movies much of the fear stemmed from the fact that the demons will always be more powerful I have just watched the newest addition to the franchise "Annabelle Comes Home", and it was a huge disappointment The movie felt like it's lasted 30 minutes.

There's nothing new or groundbreakingly innovative to be found here, but it is a simple yet effective film that's perfectly enjoyable for what it is.

confusing, loud, and all over the place, hardly noticed Annabelle was in it.

Only reason this is a two star is because there are one or two decent jump scares but overall extremely predictable and just a let down.

Don't waste your time.

You're probably thinking, "no storyline, no Ed and Lorraine Warren, what's happening?

No story , no beginning, no end , no scary scenes , nothing at all , don't waste your time believe me skip it .

From start to finish, it was suspenseful!

Andhad an enjoyable plot!

But if you're a horror fan looking for some true terror and a satisfying story, don't waste your time with this one.

Just a lot of tricks, floating objects, noise, first 1- 1/2 hr.. zzzzzz .. a 1hr long haunted house scene...

There was no motivation for evil to achieve anything, there were no victims, there were just two shocks and most of the time we sniffle through a house with very slow camera-walks.

It was an enjoyable movie that does a good job at being a horror movie without having to have a hundred different attempts at jump scares to make it creepy.

All in all it was very bland.


This entry in the conjuring universe has some clever scares and great acting, but overall there is no story being narrated.

Don't waste your time .

Nothing happens until half way of the movie.

I saw it on opening night with one of my friends and we both really enjoyed it.

They take a slower burn with this film and give the girls a bit of pathos so you root for them.

Annabelle Comes Home uses all the tricks in The Conjuring playbook to be one of the scariest and most entertaining movies in the franchise.

With James Wan and company at the helm they are all enjoyable for the Supernatural possession horror films genre fan .

Unfortunately the movie has nothing to deliver, the story was completely trash, jump scares scenes are overused and you will know them before happening, boring dialogues and acting.. even Vera and Patrick showed up for a few minutes in the whole movie!!

Other than the last 15 minutes you could just fall asleep.

To be honest I wanted to stop watching the movie because it became so boring to watch.

Too many unnecessary monsters and ghosts with little to no story or purpose.

If it wasn't for the truly amazing performances, this could very easily be the worst movie of the year (Serenity still holds that spot).

Although not as frightening as other films in the franchise, the cast's performance and atmosphere makes Annabelle Comes Home a very enjoyable film in the Conjuring Universe.

But if you're a horror fan looking for some true terror and a satisfying story, don't waste your time with this one.

Very entertaining to watch.

Worst movie from the Conjuring franchise .

Boring .

i would rather watch paint dry than this film .

Every scary movie cliche in the book.

Yeah, she kind of does that latter part, but her character goes in a way that is unexpected and fleshes her out.

Overall, total boring and don't bother watching it, not worth it.

Daniella's character soon becomes unbearable.

It soon starts to introduce the characters who are likable and engaging group.

Generally, the movie was very slow...

Honest it was basicly a snorefest for me, didint really keep my attention, there are a few good scenes but over all the movie had no story and was boaring.

No plot.

and I left the theater extremely disappointed.

Anabelle Comes Home is a semi entertaining movie that fails to capture the scares of the its predecessors.

More meaningless and pointless than lifeguards at Olympic swimming .

Though, she's really just a bland, contrived protagonist, making me wish Lorraine and Walter were the protagonists instead.

Another entertaining entry in The Conjuring series with the young actors looking like they're having a lot of creepy fun.

Entertaining .

snooze fest is what this movie is .

Dont waste your money .

" - instead, you will watch a mildly disturbing bedtime story set in the 70s where you'll struggle to stay awake and will watch the credits roll wondering why it was rated "R" instead of PG or PG-13.

Some are boring and dull.

It was intense and quite the ride when things got going.

Annabelle Comes Home was so slow.

Well, I think that another movie based on the doll alone might have been a bit stale and repetitive, whereas the extra characters added a new dimension to the movie.

There's no story in it, it's just made for the sake of it.

Snooze fest .

Good movie but be prepared for it to be a slow build up.

It felt like the movie A night at the museum, kind of quirky and at times boring.

The camera movement is good at all & unpredictable, there are no actors and actresses to worry about either.

Boring .

What surprised me most is the solid performance by Judy and the humor aspect of this film which was highly enjoyable.

In Annabelle you have this woman basically going through this hauting alone which actually made it a dull experience.

It makes me dull about being scared at all.

But as she's back & I wish she stayed out, she's more malevolently boring than ever.

The pace of the movie was quite slow during the times it led to the jump scares; which were also very mediocre.

The unlikable cringy characters some of whom are just for the purpose of being funny IN A HORROR MOVIE, trash dialoges, way too slow development in a short movie, no consequences of characters actions at all, the same crappy unscary thor's ice giants looking creature for a villian all contributed to this being one of the worst and least horror movie of all horror movies I've ever watched.

But again it's entertaining so what da hell go see it!!!

Waste of time & money .

Only jump scares with noisy sound effects and cheap cliches used millions times in J horrors, no plot, no story.

Thoroughly enjoyable .

Just like Annabelle: Creation, ACH is a fun flick that's perfectly enjoyable for what it is.

The splintering of the characters made for a disjointed final narrative sequence, although not a huge detriment, and the moment of reflection was neatly wrapped up with a hug and some cake.

Boy, was I wrong - it was a fast-paced, entertaining romp from beginning to the end.

"), and nothing happened!

Imma huge fan of the conjuring series but this is the absolute worst movie in the series of entry of movies so far.

Saying that, there is a lot of build up to the actual 'haunted house horror stuff' which brings a lot of fake outs in the first half and this can get a bit tedious.

Thankfully, though, it's a decently enjoyable, competently constructed experience throughout.


Boring .

Very enjoyable for the Supernatural possession horror films genre fan .

Entertaining 👍 .

As everyone said slow , legit takes the movie an hour just to get to the "good" parts.

This was the worst movie I've ever seen honestly they didn't even need to add this movie in the story such a disappointment

It was so bland.

Not the greatest Conjuring Universe installment, but still an intense, creepy haunted house horror flick.

Don't waste your time or money.

Better keep it for you to see.. All in all, enjoyable and scarey.. love it

The horror genre has been exponentially growing, and it's one of the two most popular genres right now (comic-book movies are the other), but this cheap, bland, cliche, predictable, and forgettable class of horror films is genuinely starting to annoy and frustrate me.

The Conjuring movies usually have some great story mlines that add mystery to the movie and kind of makes it worth watching.

Pathetic and boaring as hell, don't waste your time.

The story is suspenseful and maintains thrill and horror.

Worst movie of series so far.

Predictable, stupid, jokes were really bad and what about the werewolf?

I'm personally got bored when the casts were running out of no where because surrounded by all the demons.

It was a classic, cliche, non scary movie.

Terrible and boring .

I was fidgeting the whole time.

They all seem to rely on these cliche horror tricks in order to pull off scares.

The character "Daniella" was unbearable to watch.

Now I have to say, I did find this film to be enjoyable, much like the prequel film in this series.

I remember when warner announced this movie I was very exited to see what they are cooking after the disappointment of The Nun & The curse of la llorona, maybe something good, with quality & good jump scares & I really had high hopes for this one to be good but I was so wrong that I left the theater mad very mad.

The growing feeling of dread & the slow-burn horror, is a breath of fresh air in this franchise but, will get a tad bit tedious at times.

The first hour is a complete waste of time, with bare character development.

Not perfect, but definitely entertaining.

The artefact room itself is a fascinating addition to the movie, as in previous Conjuring movies we merely get a glimpse of the room.

The rest of the movie is a plotless chain of repetitive cliché scenes of suspense building up to a moving object or ghost Scares.

To many scares and just way to predictable, all tough I enjoyed the first Annabelle I must admit I prefer the conjuring movies to the Annabelle series.


Despite a couple inventive set pieces, these sequences quickly become tedious.

There were times where it was really hard to keep my eyes open and stay awake.


Waste of time.

It uses the obvious tactics such as rocking chair, lights going off, torch going not working, the unexpected (expected) scenes involving a mirror and not so horrifying image of annabelle in it, and the most used uneffective scenes where the character see's the ghost directly and suddenly being blocked by a closing door just to open it and not seeing the ghost ever again.

Absolutly not, the movie is great, and a enjoyable flick with a nice tribute to the real life lorraine in the end.

Don't waste your precious time.

Boring plot the movie and predictable jump scares.

Basically as we have seen with so many the trailer shows the clips of the best bits but when joined together in an actual film the whole thing is just boring, with nothing really happening for an hour into the film, its feet dragging as the dolls would if it tried to walk.

Scary but very slow.

Slow,dark,and and predictable...

Dont waste your money.

Very few scary scenes, quite boring.

Boring and uneventful...

Once things do start going bump, it does get very fast paced and thoroughly foreboding at times all while staying grounded with the plot.

While some of the initial jump scares were used effectively, the later ones were overused and predictable.

Creepy but slow .

This movie is unoriginal, the plot is almost non existent, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are not a part of the main story, the scares are all the same, everything's in the same house, the comedy is predictable.

It's very predictable and kinda boring to stay in the cinema for almost 2hrs to watch this for bull****.

It's an amalgamation of previous conjuring movies, sound and visual effects good tho it could be made more scarier so the people would enjoy it more but worth watching it once.

The Worst movie of 2019 .

Worst movie of the year !.

Needless, not scary, and predictable .

Once you get over the initial slow hump it thrills and chills until the end.

Very enjoyable .

Very predictable "horror" movie.

Annabelle Comes Home is a thrilling 3rd chapter to the Annabelle films and the 7th installment to The Conjuring Universe.

They just seem so fascinating.

Waste of time .

Good cast and very enjoyable edge of your seat stuff lots of suspense and no gore which I liked.
