Da'Mon Guy checks out the paranormal horror, The Conjuring.
There are so many unexplainable events that occur in reality - exorcisms, haunting, and many other. These real life occurrences are more scary than the fictional stories many of us flock to the multiplex to see. Occasionally a film comes along inspired by one of these events, just like 2013s The Conjuring.
In the early 70’s, there was an inexplicable event that was so fantastic it’s hard to fathom that it was real. The Conjuring attempts to capture the true story of that most unusual real life happening. It’s an uncanny tale of the supernatural that will force you to re-evaluate your beliefs and question what you think about the supernatural. The movie stars Patrick Wilson (Insidious), Vera Fermiga (Source Code), Ron Livingston (Parkland), Lili Taylor (The Courier), Joey King (White House Down), and Hayley Mcfarland (Fragments).
The Conjuring is a story about a family named Perron who buy a house where some ghastly murders took place. The house is said to be cursed, and forces any new occupants to murder one another after being possessed. The latest family seeks the aid of a pair of well-known paranormal researchers, Ed and Lorraine Warren, to help rid them of the spirits. It’s a bone chilling tale that is one of the better horror movies of recent years, and is absolutely stocked with great suspense as well as thrills and chills. This unnerving narrative will keep you on your toes and send chills up your spine. The Conjuring really is horror at its best.
Patrick Wilson delivers an impressive performance as Ed Warren, somehow he just gets 'horror'. Wilson finds a way to get you to believe, and that goes a long way in this type of film. Although he's not given as good of a role as the one that he had in Insidious, he makes the absolute most of it. .
The Conjuring is one of the real life stories that is so incredible that it’s hard to believe that it is based on actual events. This tale of demonic possession is easily one of the better horror stories from recent years, plus it's actually a true horror story and not some “blood and guts and gore fest” that just tries to push your visual gag reflex with the use of excessive blood and grotesque imagery. It’s a great throwback to classic horror and clearly a must see for all fans of the genre.
