THE CONJURING (2013) : REVIEW
July 26, 2013
"Something awful happened here, Ed."
I was dropdead curious when I heard the hype from the people who had seen the early screenings and the midnight shows; The Conjuring was said to be the scariest movie of 2013, that even the hunkiest man alive would whine over it. More to that, they actually provided a priest when the screening occurred, saying that this movie could cause a high disturbance for certain viewers and that they might seek the priest for a further help. I was like, "All right, this one is a challenge." And the fact that this movie was directed by James Wan who brought you the one movie that can be classified as 'frightening' in 2010 : Insidious. Also, don't forget the fact that The Conjuring was based on a true event of The Perron and Warren family (it was first called "The Warren Files" before they decided to use "The Conjuring" instead). As the warning said in the opening of the movie, that this particular event was considered to be The Warren's most frightening case which they kept it sealed .. until now. So, was it that scary?
