The Dark Avengers recruit another member. Annabelle: Creation – movie review

After watching Annabelle (2014) I had little anticipation for this prequel that fits in The Conjuring universe and revolves around a possessed doll. However, the direction by David F.

Creature of the Black Lagoon (1954) was released in a quirky period of time for the history of cinema. In 1953, a few production companies attempted the 3D technology for the first time.
