Annabelle Comes Home will be remembered as the high concept horror blockbuster which will spawn more entries to The Conjuring universe.
With catchy tunes, heartfelt fan-service treatment and juxtaposed narrative, the uplifting prequel not only completes (even, exceeds) the original Mamma Mia, but it also works delicately as a standalone story
