Critics Consensus: Annabelle: Creation adds another strong chapter to the Conjuring franchise - and offers further proof that freaky-looking dolls remain reliably terrifying.

It's proof that slower doesn't always mean better in horror.

Gory scenes, lots of scares in skillfully made sequel.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Annabelle: Creation is a horror movie that's part of the Conjuring franchise. It takes place before the events of Annabelle and The Conjuring. Expect lots of scary stuff, including a creepy doll, demons, ghosts, scary sounds, and objects and people suddenly moving. Characters die, and there are gory wounds and/or bodily injuries: A woman's body is torn in half, and she's hung on a wall. A little girl is hit by a car. Language is very minor, with a use of "damn," as well as faith-based uses of "Jesus," "Jesus Christ," and "hell." Sex and substance use aren't issues. Overall, this sequel seems slightly milder than its predecessors, though it's still plenty scary, and horror hounds who flocked to the other three movies in the series will most certainly want to see it.
