Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Annabelle is a prequel to the horror movie The Conjuring, about a possessed doll. There's lots of bloody horror, splattering blood, and scary images, plus some jump-shock moments, shooting, fighting, and dead bodies. A pregnant woman and, later, a small child are in jeopardy. It's all pretty terrifying. But on the upside, other than the scary/gory stuff, there's not too much other iffy content of note -- no sex, strong language, alcohol, cigarettes, or drugs. Though the central couple is married and affectionate, they're very rarely physical onscreen (not much beyond a hug or a kiss). And since the movie is set in the 1960s, not many brand names are shown. Horror fans will probably want to see this, but it's not likely to be as big as The Conjuring was.

Sexual Content

Characters include a loving married couple who are expecting a baby. Though they're affectionate, they're rarely physical toward each other.


Only a few dead bodies, but lots of blood, including frequent pools and splatters. A pregnant woman and a child are in jeopardy. During a break-in, a pregnant woman is stabbed, and a man fights, bashes, and pummels the intruders against the walls. The cops shoot the intruders. Bloody crime scene photos. A woman cuts her finger on a sewing machine. A kitchen catches on fire. A man is thrown across the pavement by a ghostly force. The movie has an overall sense of terror with some scary, blood-curdling moments, some of which involve a baby.

Social Behavior

Basically the movie is about misfortune; bad things randomly happen to good people. But the good people do get certain chances to help out in big ways.


A late 1960s "Jiffy Pop" popcorn popper is shown.
