A week after the child-crafted plaything Forky found life in "Toy Story 4" and with Chucky retooled in "Child's Play," the evil vintage doll of the "Conjuring" spinoff series "Annabelle" is back, too, in "Annabelle Comes Home".For better or worse, these horror movies are also almost comforting, safely sealed in a trope-filled movie world that, unlike Jordan Peele's films, doesn't claw at our own.That's especially true of screenwriter-turned-director Gary Dauberman's "Annabelle Comes Home," which echoes equal parts sincerity and screaming. That's more or less how "Annabelle Comes Home" begins. The Warrens are driving home when it dawns on them that the doll they've just acquired, which got not one but two origin stories in "Annabelle" and "Annabelle Creation," is a kind of beacon for evil. That's what makes "Annabelle Comes Home" and some of its "Conjuring" ilk oddly soothing."Annabelle Comes Home" is screening in Beirut-area cinemas.
