Box Office: $265.9 million (#15)

An exceedingly lame spin-off from The Conjuring which doesn't even begin to make the most of its possessed doll premise, Annabelle is about as good a movie as one should expect from the director of Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.

From the dull characters through to the pronounced lack of scares or even basic suspense, this is a stunningly boring film that follows the most bland studio horror formula, while the inevitable nods to the likes of Rosemary's Baby feel shallow and half-baked.

Aside from a compelling performance by Oscar-nominee Alfre Woodard, there's just nothing here for anyone but the most easily satisfied genre fan.
