Summer Sundowners at Folly

Cinema – Annabelle
Ah, dolls and childhood and innocence and all that good stuff. Is there a more productive seam in the horror genre? This is the fourth film in the successful Conjuring series and acts as a prequel to 2014’s Annabelle, and it manages to add in a whole new layer of tropes that are somehow not only welcome but entirely essential to this outing’s appeal – indeed, it could be argued that this is the best of the lot.
In cinemas now
