Movie Review: The Conjuring ♥ – ✭✭✭✭✭
“When the music stops, you’ll see him in the mirror standing behind you.”
After seeing the trailer for this movie, I hoped that it would live up because of just how good the trailer actually was. I’ve got to say, I haven’t enjoyed a horror movie like this in a really long time.
NOTE: If you haven’t watched this movie, I’d advise you to watch it before reading this because I have gone into detail and I would never want to spoil it for you!
At the beginning of the movie, it began as any horror movie that surrounded a haunted house would begin. The happy family moving in, and then later on being faced with supernatural occurrences that will leave them to believe that they aren’t alone.
This of course did happen, but that wasn’t what made the movie as great as it was. Not only did each time something incredibly frightening happen, it jumped me every time, but there wasn’t just one supernatural entity that was roaming inside those four walls (that, in my opinion was a great idea on the writer’s part).
The story line was amazingly executed and I do believe that this is one of those horror movies that I wouldn’t mind watching a second time, and I’m pretty sure I’d enjoy it all the same.
This movie had the perfect mix of the Grudge, the Exorcist, and a little American Horror Story. All definite factors to this movie’s greatness. My favorite little detail of this entire movie was the doll, whose name was Annabelle. (She, was a little more terrifying than the movie, no joke). And, NOBODY DIED. That’s right, everyone survived this horrific experience, and that was also something you don’t see everyday where a horror movie is concerned.
As for the cast, that is another plus. Each role was given to the right person, in my opinion and I truly believe that this movie is (and should be if it isn’t already) a five-star movie.
If you have yet to see this movie (yet I warned you in the beginning!), check out the trailer below:
Thanks for reading! ♥
