Conjuring (2013) ~ Review

*contains spoilers

James wan
, creator of Saw and Insidious, widely known for awry horror genre has kept his touch in this one too. Good cinematography by John R.Leonetti and exceptional screenplay writing from the twin brothers Chad and Carey Hayes imbued with Joseph Bishara's sudden breath taking background musics in ominously quiet play rode the spectators at the edge of the seat throughout the whole movie, till the last sec. 

The story takes place in 1971, where Carolyn (Lili Taylor) and Roger Perron (Ron livingston) move their family into a dilapidated Rhode Island farm house and soon strange things start happening around it with escalating nightmarish terror. In desperation, Carolyn contacts the noted paranormal investigators, Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga), to examine the house. What the Warrens discover is a whole area steeped in a satanic haunting that is now targeting the Perron family wherever they go. To stop this evil, the Warrens will have to call upon all their skills and spiritual strength to defeat this spectral menace at its source that threatens to destroy everyone involved.

Only worrying part is, the same old story which is being used for creepy movies since 1980's. Ending is too predictable, it could have been better. Since it's based on true events, so couldn't ask for more nor can complain. Protagonist couples investigating paranormal activities is something new. Kirk M.Morri's editing kept the momentum going. Not much visual effects needed so CG not over poured but placed wherever required. Finally, have to tell about the direction, James Wan really stands tall above all. Ending left with so many questions. Still undoubtedly the best horror/thriller to be witnessed this season.

Conjuring --> Mind blowing.
A Masterpiece by wan and crew. Must watch.

Rating: 7.5/10
