August has never been the greatest movie month of the year, but at least this time around there really is something for everybody - provided that you're a fan of horror, biographical drama, and animation. Get ready for Annabelle: Creation, The Glass Castle and The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature. It's gonna be a Rotten Week!

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

Annabelle: Creation
Rotten Watch Prediction
78%

The Conjuring Universe continues to expand. And sust so we are all caught up here, Annabelle: Creation is a prequel to Annabelle (29%), which is a prequel to the The Conjuring (86%), and overall is overall fourth film in the franchise. The new movie once again revolves around the seriously creepy titular doll, Annabelle, who is possessed by a demon, and becomes a nightmare for a group of orphans. And while the first movie in this series-within-a-franchise was a critical dud, this one is already collecting some positive marks.

Critics are overwhelming positive early with the Tomatometer sitting at 100% through 15 reviews. It clearly won't stay here, but this should finish certified fresh when all's said and done. It's worth noting that the director, David F. Sandberg, had some critically-appreciated horror in the works last year as well, making his feature debut with Lights Out (76%). I expect Annabelle: Creation to fall in a similar zone.
