Is that you Casper?

This is an enjoyable ghost flick that definitely packs in some good scares. Whilst it didn't genuinely frighten me it did keep me on the edge often and I was constantly engaged fully.

Creepy, spooky, awesomeness

A real throwback to the old-school horrors of the 70s. Properly creepy - I had to tape cushions on the ceiling to protect my wife's head - and that's all you could want from a ghost tale.

Nostalgic Horror

It's been a while. But finally there is a horror movie that lives up to the title. I remember the time of genuine horrors. The exorcists and the Damien the Omens of the 70s. A time when cinema seats where made of brown leather for a reason. Sure, senseless murders achieved in new and creative ways by the bucket load perpetrated by dark and evil entities...

Great classic horror

I really enjoyed The Conjuring. Acting was a little bit shaky in some places, but overall the story-line was good and there were a few decent scares.

Awesome

Its about time they went back to the good old days for horror movies. All the gore, blood and guts stuff these days has put me off them. Really enjoyed it and would defiantly see it again.

Creating Atmosphere

The story evolves slowly from two different directions.One of the family that have moved to a house they just bought.The other is the view of the investigators.It all comes together to counter the paranormal.Because it is based on a true story it does not vary to much from a predictable movie. The skill of the director far exceeds the story.The camera...

Edge of your seat stuff...

Director James Wan does it again. Simple but truly effective horror with some genuine scares thrown in there. Wan also pay homage to his genre favourites The Birds, The Exorcist and Poltergeist. After so many average horrors recently is good to see someone producing the goods. Thanks flicks for the double pass which I won!

The Conjuring works with the tried and true and delivers pure, unnerving terror and dread.

Horror, as a genre, just doesn't cut it in modern cinema. Audiences have become too desensitized to cheap images and loud noises to provoke a 'scare' that everyone has begun to believe that this is the norm. It has been the destruction of a great genre for the past 20 years and we've only had a shimmer of light maybe once a year, if we're lucky, on what...

Like the wood-grained farmhouse itself — a beautiful piece of production design by Julie Berghoff — The Conjuring has an analog solidity that makes the terror to come almost unbearable.

With The Conjuring, [Wan] once more turns the familiar terrifying, making it easy to fear what’s behind that closed door, or under the bed, or just around the corner, making a creaking noise that doesn’t sound quite right.

The handsomely shot, expertly button-pushing scare-fest has the polish and the cast to draw older audiences who grew up on shockers built from performances rather than CGI.

The Conjuring manages to place individuals in one isolated situation after another, where the editing and music are perfectly timed to capitalize on the payoff scare moment.

As an exercise in classical scare tactics, delivered through an escalating series of primo setpieces, The Conjuring is often supremely effective.
