Critic Reviews for Uncanny Annie

I have a high tolerance for bad dialogue, but "Uncanny Annie" really grates even on that level. The characters here are either yelling about what the game wants them to do or revealing the secrets unearthed by it, and none of it sounds remotely genuine.

Perhaps it is all a metaphor for the zero-sum game which millennials find themselves forced to play in a system rigged against them.

Solid digital effects work well to create a phantom or two, and while the poltergeist ultimately resembles nothing more than a creepy old perv the combination of performance, editing, and direction make him a chilling presence.

Uncanny Annie is the perfect haunt for your holiday. It's fun, it's creative, and it's definitely a film that I will be adding to my list of Halloween horror recommendations...

Overall, UNCANNY ANNIE is a good start to what I'm betting will be an epic second season for the Into The Dark anthology series.

Annie's brand of demonic manipulation is no child's play and approved for all ages. Alright, Season 2. Pass go and collect your bonus - but let's see if quality withstands eleven more months.

Uncanny Annie is easily the worst of the Into the Dark episodes yet.

Into the Dark's 'Uncanny Annie' is in the same vein as Ready or Not in that the narrative surrounds a devilish game. In this case, the episode's titular game is the most frightening and deadly of the year.

The first episode of Into the Dark season 2 sets the bar low enough for the rest of the season to clear it, which gives me hope that things will pick up next month.

Uncanny Annie doesn't have much to say but provides an entertaining, slightly creepy experience; it may not have reinvented the wheel, but Uncanny Annie is a spooky-fun time and stands above most others in the series.

The episode does do a lot with its single setting, and it piles on the "Oh shit, what now?" tension to acceptably excruciating levels. The baby-voiced title villain, who giggles as she hands down her cruel punishments, is also pretty great.
