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

Has echoes of the original film, and works more with mood and less with cheap scares than either Annabelle or The Conjuring 2, resulting in a truly effective genre flick.

The film surpasses what was previously seen in the universe of The Conjuring thanks to its first part, but the rest doesn't give for more. [Full review in Spanish]
