It's been awhile since I've seen a good ghost story, I mean a good ghost story. Growing up in a couple of haunted houses myself I am a sucker for scary ghost stories. When I first heard of the Conjuring I was very excited! I am a huge fan of the Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren and couldn't wait to see this film. After being teased by trailers for weeks now I finally saw the film yesterday night.
James Wan yet again does not disappoint with his films. He not only knows how to put together a great ghost story but he also knows how to create suspense. Something that I feel a lot of movies lack.
One of the best parts of his films I have noticed is hearing the audiences reactions in the theater. Yes I love it when I hear people screaming and seeing them jump, James Wan has been successful at this multiple times. He isn't afraid of playing with camera angles and there are some amazing and beautiful shots in this film. Another great thing about the film is that it doesn't just give us insight on a family being tormented by a dark entity but it also gives us some insight on the warrens and who they were. I would love to see more films like this, especially of more cases from the Warrens. After watching this film I must say I felt very relieved, I felt great, I felt like I finally seen a good horror film, and its been a while. James Wan thank you for making my year!! :)
The Conjuring is a roller coaster ride of suspense, horror, and chills, a must see and let me say I cannot wait to see what James Wan will come up with next.
