Annabelle: Creation, That Doll is the Devil

Creating Actual Horror With Annabelle: Creation

I don’t often have anything complimentary to say about big-studio horror movies. Most end up being watered down, PG-13 knock-offs of popular themes in the genre with a certain degree of fan service and pseudo-self awareness meant to be clever,… Continue Reading →
