I will be the first to admit that I’m a big scaredy, fraidy cat. Yet, I love watching scary movies. I know I won’t be able to sleep, but that’s never stopped me. *laughs*
The Conjuring is the first scary movie I’ve watched in a while and I must say that I looked away from the screen several times throughout this movie. It’s The Exorcist meets Amityville Horror.
It’s said that this movie is based on a true story. In Hollywood, oftentimes it’s difficult to separate what’s fact from fiction, what’s reality and what’s amped up for entertainment purposes. As I watched, I wasn’t sure. What happened to the Perron family seems so fantastical and beyond creepy.
I think what I loved the most about this movie were the Warrens. Paranormal Investigation has been around for as long as the belief in the supernatural. So long as there are people being terrorized by the unexplained, there will be people who live for finding explanations. This is the first time I’ve heard about the Warrens, but they fascinate me. In the movie, it is shown that they have a room in their house where they hold all the haunted artefacts that they’ve collected through the years. I so hope this room is true because it seems so awesome.
Should you watch The Conjuring? Of course. It’s a fun scare fest. There was this guy in the cinema who whispered that the scares in the movie were predictable, yet when it came time to scream, he yelped the loudest. *shakes head and grins* I say, if the jaded movie goer is freaked out then the movie is worth your while.
