Synopsis

“Annabelle Comes Home” is the third installment of New Line Cinema’s hugely successful “Annabelle” films starring the infamous sinister doll from the “Conjuring” universe.  Gary Dauberman, the screenwriter of the “Annabelle” films, “IT” and “The Nun,” makes his directorial debut on the film, which is produced by Peter Safran (“Aquaman”), who has produced all the films in the “Conjuring” franchise, and “Conjuring” universe creator James Wan (“Aquaman”).

Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her “safely” behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest’s holy blessing.  But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new target—the Warrens’ ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.

The film stars McKenna Grace (TV’s “The Haunting of Hill House,” “Gifted,” “Captain Marvel”) as Judy; Madison Iseman (“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” “Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween”) as her babysitter, Mary Ellen; and Katie Sarife (TV’s “Youth and Consequences” and “Supernatural”) as troubled friend Daniela; with Patrick Wilson (“Aquaman,” “The Conjuring” and “Insidious” films) and Vera Farmiga (“The Conjuring” films, upcoming “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” TV’s “Bates Motel”) reprising their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren.

Dauberman directed the film from a screenplay he wrote, from a story by Dauberman & Wan.  Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Victoria Palmeri, Michael Clear, Michelle Morrissey and Judson Scott served as executive producers.

Dauberman’s behind-the-scenes team included director of photography Michael Burgess (upcoming “The Curse of La Llorona”), production designer Jennifer Spence (“Annabelle: Creation,” “The Nun”), editor Kirk Morri (“Aquaman”) and costume designer Leah Butler (“Annabelle: Creation”).  The music is by Joseph Bishara (“The Conjuring” films).

New Line Cinema presents, an Atomic Monster/Peter Safran Production, “Annabelle Comes Home.”  The film is set to open in theatres and IMAX on June 28, 2019 and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Annabelle Comes Home Blu-ray Review


We first met Annabelle in "The Conjuring" series of films, which portray stories from the work of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. In 2014, Annabelle got her own film, followed by a prequel in 2017 titled "Annabelle: Creation". Now, the third film in the franchise, "Annabelle Comes Home", which was released in June 2019, is available on Blu-ray for your home entertainment collection.

In "Annabelle Comes Home", we once again see everyone's paranormal investigation couple Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson; Aquaman and Vera Farmiga; Bates Motel). Annabelle is a doll that the couple takes possession of from a couple of nurses who claim that the doll came to life and committed violent acts while in their apartment. After an eventful ride home, they lock the doll away in a special case inside their artifacts room. This room is located in their home and is blessed by a priest so that nothing can escape it. 

Time goes by and the Warrens need to go out of town on business. They hire a babysitter, Mary Ellen (Madison Iseman; Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), to watch their daughter, Judy (Mckenna Grace; Gifted) and they head off on their trip. Mary, Ellen's friend, decides to visit her at the Warren house, and she sneaks into the artifact room and sets off a series of violent events after Annabelle escapes from her case.

The 1080p high definition video quality is pretty strong for the most part with crisp details and rich colors.  However, there is a bit of noise that comes through but it is only mildly distracting.  The Dolby Atmos audio fares better with clear dialogue and full, and an eerie soundtrack to increase the suspense and drama.

Special features included in this title are:
  • Behind the Scenes: This features consists of the following 3-parts:
    • Part 1: The Ferryman/Demon: A look at the prosthetics used on the characters portrayed by Alexander Ward, as well as his performance for both. 
    • Part 2: The Bloody Bride: A look at the character portrayed by Natalia Safran's.
    • Part 3: The Werewolf: A look at the making of the werewolf scene.
  • The Artifact Room and the Occult: Fans get a better look at this set piece and some of the items within.
  • The Light and the Love: This feature takes a look at the string relationship of the Warrens despite the evil that their life is filled with. 
  • Deleted Scenes: Including Roller Skate, Kitchen, Birthday Cake, Daniela, and the Bride, Search for Annabelle, Alternative Ending, and Talk About the Werewolf.
I love paranormal films and the ones featuring The Warrens in particular. While this film didn't quite pack the punch that others in the series have, I still enjoyed it. It was a good evening's entertainment and definitely worth owning to complete this franchise for your collection. 

Grade: B+
