Film Review: The Conjuring


I don’t know about my friends “across the pond” as we say, but Americans love a good ole fashioned down home Haunting. The Conjuring surely delivers. Based on a true story, this horrifying tale follows paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) who were called upon 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 terrifying case of their lives. The tension slowly builds right after the family moves in. They begin to sense an evil presence when the children get creepy visits in the early morning hours by something or someone pulling the children out of bed. There are mysterious bruises covering the Mothers body, photographs falling off the wall all at the same time and doors slamming on their own. The family is in utter crisis when they seek the help of the Warrens to end this nightmare they find themselves in only to find that they have been confronted by a non relenting malicious spirit that has literally attached itself to the members of the family. The conjuring harkens back to the days of the classic horror film that thrills and chills instead of slice and dice. Part Amityville Horror part Exorcist. Go see The Conjuring.
