If you've ever needed another reason not to buy a old plantation style house, just watch The Conjuring. The house itself is scary looking but the real fright is on the inside where multiple entities are living. This movie has some mega creepy scenes in it and several "that was creepy" events.

The main story starts with a family moving into an old plantation type house. Everything seems find at first and then the "bumps" in the night start.  As the evil forces become more violent the family seeks help from a pair of supernatural investigators.

 
Another interesting factor about this movie is that it is based on some real life events. Our family as a whole enjoyed the film but for me personally, I liked seeing the history of modern paranormal research and found it exciting. Many may not be aware but the investigators portrayed in the film are real life paranormal researchers, Ed and Lorraine Warren, Sadly Ed passed away in 2006 but Lorraine is still with us and still investigating. These two were real pioneers in the field of paranormal research and established many of the techniques still used today. So the movie has roots in real paranormal history, which people in the field of ghost hunting will appreciate.

The film is very entertaining and will make a great addition to the growing Halloween "must watch" movies. There is one scene in particular that stands out for me and it is the sheet scene, which I have included above. For more trailers of The Conjuring, please Click Here. I also encourage everyone to "like" The Conjuring Facebook page by Clicking Here!

The film has many terrifying elements from haunted or possessed material items to demons and exorcisms, which all make for a very good watch. So if you got room for another good solid scary movie, you should give this one a try.

The Blu-Ray DVD also contains a short but informative special feature entitled "A life in Demonology", where the real Lorraine Warren gives some insight into her many years of paranormal investigating. This special feature is for sure a must watch for anyone who is in the field of ghost hunting.

So in the end I enjoyed the film and can recommend it to anyone looking for a good scare on a dark night.

 Rating: 4 out of 5

Thanks

  1. The Warrens were an interesting pair. But all was not as it seems. Check out this episode of Monster Talk, JUST RELEASED, that has some background on the Warrens. They were really not nice people and the book/movie versions of their adventures were "punched up". http://www.skeptic.com/podcasts/monstertalk/13/10/16/

    1. I'll also admit I didn't know much about them until I watched this movie and started searching.

  2. Yep there is some questions about the Warrens but that seems to go for about 90 percent of people in the field of paranormal research. And of course movies are always "punched up" when based on some form of truth. The movie is still a pretty good watch. Thanks for the comment.
