Considering how good Conjuring 1 & 2 are, the spin-offs all seem to suffer from a curse of mediocrity.
The first Annabelle movie was just dismal in every way. The sequel/prequel I thought was rather good. It had an interesting premise, a great location and was a pretty solid origin story. It also tied in with the first movie very well.
