Annabelle Wallis as Mia Form and Ward Horton as John Form with the doll, Annabelle in New Line Cinema's supernatural thriller "Annabelle," a Warner Bros. Pictures release.

Annabelle

Don't touch that doll. Don't do it. We've seen these creepy-doll horror films before, and it is strongly advised that you do not touch that doll. Oh, you went and touched the doll. In a prequel to last year's The Conjuring – a tale of demonic possession set in rural New England – Annabelle stars Annabelle Wallis as a pregnant wife terrorized by a wild-eyed decorative plaything. There is a Jiffy Pop moment that goes terribly wrong. (Let's just say that unpopped kernels are the least of this family's snack-time mishaps.) Alfre Woodard, hot off 12 Years a Slave, co-stars, and we all know she's the best in the business at giving concerned looks. There's plenty to be concerned with. (In wide release)

Art and Craft

As an art forger, Mark Landis is the real deal. For 30 years he duped all sorts of institutions into accepting his fakes, but, because he was giving the paintings away free of charge, he was not charged. Now he's the subject of a documentary that paints a portrait of a most curious man, while suggesting that the world of art is in itself partly a fraudulent one. (At Bloor Hot Docs Cinema)

Left Behind

In which Big Love's Cara Lynn Walker tearfully and angrily emotes, "The God that my mother talked about would never do something this!" Her mother is played by Lea Thompson, and what is meant by "something like this" is the rapture, which is a fundamentalist fairy tale involving a "final resurrection." This faith-based thriller, another adaptation of the bestselling book of the same name, stars Nicolas Cage as an airline pilot whose wife and daughter are taken in the so-called rapture. Cage has revealed that it was his pastor brother who encouraged him to take the role. No word if it was the chaplain who convinced him of the National Treasure sequel in 2007. (In wide release)

Harmontown

In 2012, writer-comedian Dan Harmon was fired from Community, the ambitious sitcom he ran. A year later he was rehired. In between, he took off with his cohorts on a live tour of his wacky-podcast variety show that takes from his name and suggests the state of accord and community he hopes to create for his happy nerd fans. "In each city, I got drunk and talked into a microphone," Harmon told Rolling Stone magazine. "I crowdsurfed pantless, drank moonshine, passed out." One man's debauchery, then, is another man's harmony. (At Bloor Hot Docs Cinema)
