Has anyone seen or plan to go see this movie yet?

I went & can say in my opinion that you aren't missing anything.
But I for some reason didn't realize that it is apparently the sequel/prequel to The conjuring which I didn't go to see.
Had I known that was going to be the story line that they were going with I certainly wouldn't have went.
Though I didn't like the movie, "As Above So Below" either so I'm not sure if I just expect too much out of the movies or what.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Yes they do have the original Annabelle doll but that's about all that is true & the story about the nurses speaking with the Warrens which is shown for about 2 minutes in this movie & I believe it was also shown in the Conjuring, but they made the doll in the movie a really Hollywood Version of a Collectible Doll instead of the Raggedy Ann Doll & they made up a story about how the doll ended up haunted, what the doll did, etc.
I went thinking they were going to actually talk about the real doll & story & it wasn't at all so I was disappointed.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Yea, I really have no intention of seeing Annabelle I have enough real events in my own lifetime to ponder about beyond the imaginations of others who are just trying to create a scare factor. On a different note, wouldn't it be great if we could create a documentary club/group that could research and film real stories without all of the hype?
Again, some of the things that have happened in my life are just as incredible and unknown as anything that anyone could write as fiction, which of course is why I belong to this site!
I remember when we were considered Esoteric, nowadays everything is tossed into the Paranormal Label, kind of insulting (smile), since instead of being revered as our paths used to be considered, now we are considered "abnormal" & all of a sudden everyone wants to be involved & then they complain when something goes wrong.
I keep saying that maybe I would view things differently if I were blinded by those rose colored glasses, but I don't know (I can't imagine looking at the world with that persona past a certain age.)
I guess Hollywood will keep doing its thing as long as people continue to want to be entertained, but I really miss Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino & Wes Craven.
If I want Horror it definitely isn't going to be based on "Paranormal Reality".
Have a Phenomenal Week
One of the things that bothered me about the movie is that the only part that was actually based on the Warrens & the actual doll were the very beginning (about 1 minute or so) & the closing 2 minutes or so.
People who didn't even know that it was based on a real doll (until the last couple of minutes) were actually complaining & wanting refunds because they didn't get scared enough.
It was a mess.
Have a wonderful week
In my experience a person can connect using a doll by asking the doll questions (much like using a pendulum) & watching the dolls eyes blink or change color (Yes/No Questions) or if the dolls speaks & also by using the eyes (whether they move or not doesn't matter) as a looking glass portal to discern.
Flatliners is the scariest of all of those movies you mentioned Maria because theoretically it is possible to do what they are attempting to do in the film. In fact it's so possible it would not surprise me if many people have attempted this way of crossing over and then being pulled back!
