Movie Review: The Conjuring (2013)

Boom! Another movie review is up, and this time I'm reviewing non other than the horror flick, The Conjuring!

Caught this the other day with le bb, and I'm not exactly a fan of horror films, so most of the time I was behind the shawl, but I could still see the silhouette of what was happening :p So did I like it? Read on to find out!

Synopsis: In 1971, Carolyn and Roger Perron move their family into a dilapidated Rhode Island farm house and soon strange things start happening around it with escalating nightmarish terror. In desperation, Carolyn contacts the noted paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren, to examine the house. What the Warrens discover is a whole area steeped in a satanic haunting that is now targeting the Parren family wherever they go. To stop this evil, the Warrens will have to call upon all their skills and spiritual strength to defeat this spectral menace at its source that threatens to destroy everyone involved.

Verdict: 7/10. Not a fan of horror films, but this is one of the best I've seen yet this year :) The movie actually has another side story apart from the main story. And both stories are based on true stories. How creepy (but also awesome in a way) is that?!? What pulled off the movie well was that the Director not only made some parts thrilling with music, he also made other parts filled with suspense WITHOUT music. There's a difference in tone and atmosphere when you use music and when you don't use it, and James Wan has harnessed every one with finesse. The best part is, the Director is from Kuching as well! Kuchingites rock yo! :D

If you haven't already done so, go catch it this Raya holidays! Even if you're a scaredy cat (like me), you will like it :)

Til the next time, stay beautiful!
