I loved 'The Conjuring' so when I heard it was receiving a spin off, I was ecstatic. I was even more excited when i heard it would be based on the very scary story of "Annabelle" that was told in the beginning of the Conjuring. The story for Annabelle was scary but the movie was more scary. While I was not freaked out by it really, it did offer some genius shock and fright moments. I still think The Conjuring was better but this was definitely a good movie too. One thing though is that this scary spin-off 'conjures' up toy related fear for many.
