Annabelle (2014), courtesy Warner Bros.

Annabelle

Annabelle is the 2014 spinoff that focuses on the origin story of the infamous possessed doll from the opening scene of The Conjuring.  The story is contrived and the actors are flat, but it’s a fun watch, even if the best scare was lifted right out of another movie.

Annabelle is not nearly as bad as people remember it being, but it’s nowhere near as good as Annabelle: Creation (the REAL origin story of the doll).  Get your creepy doll fill right here at Crackle.

Case 39

Case 39 is about a social worker who is assigned to investigate a suspected case of child abuse.  She confirms her suspicions and removes the child from the home, but soon discovers that the parents may not have been the problem.

This 2009 creeper stars Oscar winner Renée Zellweger and four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper, although it’s far from either actor’s best work.  Still an effective little horror tale, though.  See for yourself right here at Vudu.

Pi

Before he was dividing horror fans with mother! or bumming them out with Requiem for a Dream, filmmaking phenom Darren Aronofsky was confusing them with PiPi is about a mathematician who builds a computer that holds to key to unlocking the questions of existence.  Of course, other people want the computer with all of the answers, too.

Made in 1998, Pi is Aronofsky’s first movie, but his storytelling potential is clear, even if the plot is a bit esoteric and existential.  If you like Aronofsky, you’ll like Pi.  Check it out here at Tubi TV.

Dial M for Murder (1954), courtesy Warner Bros.

Dial M For Murder

Dial M for Murder is a 1954 noir thriller about a tennis pro who conspires to murder his cheating wife so that he can inherit her fortune.  His seemingly simple plan is complicated by a double-cross here and a backstabbing there.

Dial M for Murder is one of Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpieces (although he has dozens), so although it’s not strictly horror, it is suspenseful enough to get a pass.  It also stars Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, and Robert Cummings.  Catch it right here at Popcornflix.
