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.

A Not So "Sinister" Review

The titles of horror films these days tend to sum up the product with one word when it shouldn’t. In Sinister, due out on DVD and Blu-ray Feb 19th, the only emotion evoked is that the terror is lurking in the midst of normalcy. For the product to additionally say that this movie is produced by the creative minds of Paranormal Activity and Insidious only kills its potential. Sad to say, according to reports by Bloody Disgusting, a sequel may be in the works.
