The Conjuring which based on the true story of the of the Perron family, and Ed and Lorrain Warren’s investigations, the film is somewhat of a tribute to Ed and Lorraine and their many paranormal investigations.
The film follows the Perron family who just moved into a beautiful secluded farm house. As they settle into their home many strange occurrences start to happen. Odd noises, an invisible being pulling the girls legs at night. After one night, where the mother is locked in the basement and their oldest daughter is attacked, they reach out to Ed and Lorraine Warren, who are what you would call ghost specialists. They go up to the home, only to find what Carolyn, the mother said was true. After the Warrens start their investigation things start to get worse.
This movie was really great. It lived up to the hype that is surrounding it. The film doesn’t feature hardly any gore or blood. Its rating is based on the terrifying scenes. I enjoyed ever y minute of this film. I liked how we got a peak into Ed and Lorraine’s life while following the Perrons. In the beginning of the film, we start with one of the Warrens most interesting case, which was Annabel. The haunted doll.
A couple scenes that really stood out was, the maid scene, when Carolyn gets trapped in the basement, and the exorcism. It has so many twists and turns that makes its brilliant.
The movie raises the bar on ghost movies, since most ghost movies like to focus more on the exorcism part, this movie focuses on the stuff that happens before and does a great exorcism scene. The movie doesn’t feature any cliches. I loved how the music was synced and matched each scene. You can tell that James Wan directed it by the music and decoration, the creepy doll, old creepy location.
A really fantastic film that took you on a rollercoaster ride from the beginning all the way to the end, it beats all the remakes and other horror movies that have come out this year. I give this film 5/5 stars.
