The Conjuring – Movie Review

IMG_7586.dng

James Wan has emerged as a force to be reckoned with in the horror genre. Does The Conjuring add to his legacy? Hit the jump to watch my full review…

Official Synopsis: Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren work to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in their farmhouse.

Review Summary: It’s so refreshing to watch a filmmaker have complete understanding of a genre. James Wan has given us a great horror movie in a world where the genre is overrun with idiotic, bikini-clad imbeciles. The Conjuring’s use of tension, atmosphere, and suggestion prove that the scariest thing to an audience has nothing to do with what you see, but what you don’t. Bravo.
