Supernatural horror saw a change in treatment (practical effects and creepy surprises) with James Wan's The Conjuring (2013) and since then the universe of films created by the young master of horror has been looked upto by fans for their dose of thrills and shivers. After the underwhelming spin-off The Nun, featuring scream queen Taissa Farmiga, comes Anabelle Comes Home and the early reviews of the scary world of dolls, demonic spirits and cursed artefacts has been pegged as a worthy spin-off to The Conjuring franchise at last, which now stands at a stong USD 1.5 billion.
Anabelle Comes Home is a sequel to Anabelle (2014) and Anabelle: Creation (2017), as it also brings in paranormal investigators of The Conjuring, Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) while the plot majorly focuses on their daughter Judy (Mckenna Grace).
Reacting to Anabelle Comes Home, one fan wrote on Twitter, "Bravo #AnabelleComesHome for solidifying the Conjouring universe as the horror franchise we deserve with its next-level world building and "bet you didn't see that coming" scares. They're smart, and naturally avoid being formulaic, all while subverting your expectations (sic)," while another one simply wrote, "Oh #anabellecomeshome was pretty damn good (sic)."
