The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Conjuring (2013)

Starring: Lili Taylor, Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Ron Livingston
Director: James Wan


Premise:
In 1971, famous paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren help a family in Rhode Island who just moved into a house with several unwanted, supernatural guests already living there.

My Take:
I dont often jump in movies. If a flick gets me once, it has done a good job. The first half of this one got me to jump in my seat six times. It has a great emotional build up as the viewer gets wrapped up in this family and the situation gets intense very quickly. I didn't realize so much of the movie would focus on the Warren's, which was a pleasant surprise because it creates a connection with each character and their families. The movie takes a familiar premise and adds a lot of surprises and suspense. This ended up being one of the best horror movies I have seen this year.

Rating: So Good (and then some)
