The Conjuring is moody and suspenseful film from the get go. It's not the perfect film worth the price of full admission, but at second tier cinemas, the six dollars spent is worthwhile to get a modest scare.

Creator/Director James Wan has finally earned his wings by creating an effective horror-thriller with The Conjuring. Not only does this movie give viewers a taste of some old school methods of invoking fear ala Robert Wise's The Haunting and William Friedkin's The Exorcist, but it also shows audiences what techniques were used in paranormal investigation back in the day. The 70's was a ripe era for the best horror films to emerge. Flash forward to the 2010s, this filmmaker has finally found a style that works for demanding fans.
