Summary: James Wan remembers to make a movie and not just a collection of jump scares. Good acting, great atmosphere, and a genuinely creepy vibe makes The Conjuring the best horror movie since the Sixth Sense.
Excerpt: One of the most well crafted true to life based stories for a horror picture. Carolyn (Lili Taylor) and Roger (Ron Livingston) Perron together with Nancy, Cindy, and Christine move into an old house. Paranormal investigators Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) Warren's assistance were needed by the Perron's after a series of spooky incidents inside the house.
Excerpt: I've seen a fair share of horror films and by this time, I know what works for me. That doesn't stop me from watching a lot of horror movies I pretty much know are going to be bad (thank you Netflix) but I'm always hoping to stumble upon something that takes me by surprise. I knew going in that The Conjuring has been getting great critical reception and a good reaction from general audiences as well.
Excerpt: "The Conjuring" is intense and often scary. It is also expertly made and executed. While the violence never gets too gory, the movie is so scary that it really does not matter. What makes the movie work, more than the scares, however, is the fact that all of the characters are well developed and sympathetic, and there is some real emotional impact here. Part of this emotional impact is due to some just terrific acting by everyone across the board.
Summary: Hands gripping my seat, heart pounding in my chest, yelling audibly, and literally shaken with fear. This was my experience watching 'The Conjuring'. FINALLY, a horror movie that is the true definition of scary. Perfectly paced, with a sustained feeling of fear throughout. The tension is never released. It's relentless in it's attempt to frighten the audience. And, best of all, no predictable jump scares! I had one hell of a great time watching this movie.
Summary: James Wan levererar en fullfjädrad och sammanhållen skräckfilm om Ed och Lorraine Warren, forskare inom det paranormala. Patrick Wilson briljerar i en roll/film som, till skillnad från hans roll i pinsamma genrekusinen Insidious, är både djup och psykologisk. Vera Farmiga, som alltmer framstår som en av våra viktigaste kvinnliga skådespelare, gör en lika minnesvärd roll. Berättelsen, scenografin, ljud/ljus och klipp håller mycket hög klass.
