Movie Review: The Conjuring 2013


Title: The Conjuring
Language: English
Genre: Horror
Running Time: 112 Minute

"The Conjuring" tells the true story of Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga), world renowned paranormal investigators, who were called to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most horrifying case of their lives.

What do I think about it:-

You really don't get horror movies like this anymore or rather you can't find horror movies that give such a chilling sensation anymore. 

Even without the statement that it is based on true encounters, The Conjuring surprises me with it's well thought out scares and painfully agonizing flow that seems to just suck you into it's plot. 

It is the same haunted house occurrence followed by a curse but yet it is able to deliver the spine chilling blows that makes you grab your seat from time to time. 

However, there are many questionable actions by the characters in the story but since these are base on the testimony of real people thus we shall take their word for it. To me, the movie has managed to drag me into the emotional burden that circles around the family and leave me no choice but to just hope the movie ends quick.

Carefully paced suspense with near perfect scare timing creates great atmosphere for you to dwell in the horror and extra credits to the vintage vibe, cinematography and the rebirth of old school make up and action choreography that makes the film so much more enjoyable. 

Appreciate the no background music touch on most scenes that creates perfect premises to scare. 

The best horror movie I've thus far in the last few years, outmatching "Sinister" in a few aspects.

Rating: 4/5

"Intense and well paced leaving you just enough time to catch a short breathe before spiraling you into a torturous journey with the characters. - benjaminfoo"

*Note: I don't scare easy when it comes to horror films but somehow "The Conjuring" left quite and impact on me that I find myself unsettling while driving back from the cinema and even while writing this review. 

PS. While writing this, my lights went off and on for about 3 times (first time it happened and I stoned a while.
