[Movie Review] The Conjuring

by - Wednesday, July 24, 2013

In this post, i will be writing a movie review. To be honest, this post will be my first movie review and i will do my best to write it based on my point of view. 

For today movie review, it will be the upcoming horror movie, The Conjuring.
Thanks to Churp Churp for the premiere ticket. 
The movie, The Conjuring, is a horror movie that directed by James Wan. If you all dunno, James Wan is also the director for the famous horror movies "Saw" and "Insidious. Feeling exciting for the new horror movie?

"The Conjuring" that is allegedly based on true events stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as a pair of paranormal investigators who are hired by a couple who has recently moved into a farm house with their children that seems haunted. The pair is based on the Perron family, who claim to have experienced a terrifying haunting during the 1970s. (From TGV website)

This movie took almost 2 hours to tell us a story about a family who moved into the farm house which is haunted by a demonic ghost. The ghost make their moves by possessing the mother of the family and guides them to kill their own kids. I never thought that the mother will be possess by the ghost because normally for horror movies, the kids will be a common target for the ghost. It was kinda new to me that this story brought in 2 expert paranormal investigators to deal with the ghost in the house. The whole story talked mainly about the motherly love for their kids. 

The whole story flow was good because i can understand the story well. The visual and audio effects were awesome. It was beyond my expectations because the visual and audio effects gave me a thrill feeling throughout the time. In this movie, i saw the ghost clearly although it was not scary after it appeared the screen for third times onward. lol.

(The real doll and the movie doll)
For me, the most scariest thing in the whole movie was the doll, Annabelle. The doll did gave me a creepy feel especially when the doll turn it head over. Totally made most of the people screams. Well, the ending is a happy ending with all the people coming out save from the incident.

Based on the movie, the whole story was based on a true story. It turns out that the Warren family and Perron family really exist in the past so does the whole story. Believe it or not, even the farm house still exist!

(Top house is the movie house, and the below house is the real farm house)
I do read about the house but it will be a long story if i talk about it here. You all can search for more information by using Google. lol. Overall, the movie rating from me will be 4.5/5. The 0.5 mark lost will be because some of the ghost scene might be a little bit fake for me. lol. But still it's a good movie.

Well, i hope i gave you all a good movie review. If you all like horror movies, The Conjuring is a MUST for you all to watch next month! The movie will be on cinema at 1st August. ^^
