  While "The Conjuring" is a very good movie, one of the biggest things many people took away from it was the brief introduction they got to the doll Annabelle. Right away I came out of that movie saying that we needed to have a movie about that doll. I'm not sure what it was about her, but apparently I wasn't the only one who felt the same way. So now everyone who became instantly enamored with Annabelle, like myself, got what they wanted... "Annabelle" the movie.
  With that said, there are a lot of big expectations from those who wanted this movie to happen. Honestly I wasn't sure what to expect, but just knew I had to see it. If audiences didn't realize it in "The Conjuring" it might not have taken them long to realize Annabelle isn't a Chucky type doll. She isn't running around slicing up people while giving wise cracks. However, she does have something in common with Chucky, and that's how she’s possessed with evil. The beginning of the movie sets up exactly why Annabelle has become the doll that shows up when bad things are happening.
  What seems a little weird about her story is that she’s possessed not only by the woman who attacks the couple early on, but also the evil that woman is trying to conjure up. Either way, both produce some pretty scary scenes. One of those scenes starts with a little girl, and ends coming at the audience as her older self. The true creepiness comes from the demon. They do an excellent job of hiding it in the darkness, and having it pop up. The prime example of that is the basement scene.
  Besides the scares, it's also nice to see a horror movie set in a little older time. It gives the movie a different look as far as the setting, and visuals. However, the pace of the movie is very similar to what audiences have seen in "The Conjuring" and "Insidious." It's kind of slow, and the couple isn’t always that interesting to listen to. The acting is all right, but nothing like the performances in "The Conjuring."
  Again, I'm not sure what I expected to see in "Annabelle," but just knew I had to see it. While she isn't the one actually doing the scares, there’s just something about her. There’s just enough evil in her, which manages to produce just enough scares. Hopefully audiences will get to see her again in a sequel, or maybe even in "The Conjuring 2." I give this movie 3 pools of blood.

Horror Movie Survival Kit

Man Crates is a new company that ships awesome gifts for men in custom wooden crates that he has to open with a crowbar! At Man Crates, it is their mission to end the difficulties that have long been associated with buying gifts for men.  And what does Man Crates have to do with horror? Well, while they have a wide assortment of crates, they also have horror themed ones like their "Zombie Survival Crate." Someone at Man Crates asked me to create my own Horror Movie Survival Kit as part of their Halloween celebration so here we go! Us horror fans know that is usually takes a lot to survive a horror film. A lot of it comes from the person's will to live, and a little luck. Obviously those things don't come in a crate, so lets start by thinking about the kind of horror movies we could end up in. We have zombies, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, aliens, end of the world scenarios, and even sharknados! Even with a crate I'm not sure we could be totally prep
