The Conjuring (2013)

Demonic activity is haunting the Perron family in their new home. Things which one could brush off as odd or unusual turn nasty and terrifying. The specialists in the field for ‘paranormal activity’ are the Warren couple, who can see, feel, test and document such events, to come up with the most suitable solution.

The premise is simple and so is the climax. What I wasn’t looking for, or rather wasn’t prepared for, was the way this film would DISTURB me. Yes it has the regular horror dose, building up slowly, using elements of fear, the unknown, surprise and a little gore. For seasoned horror viewers, this film may seem tame, but for me it gave the complete ‘blocking your ears and peeking through half opened eyes protected by parted fingers edge of your seat hardly breathing’ experience.

Director James Wan makes use of fine camera work, excellent back ground score and very authentic 70s feel, which made the already disturbing experience REAL. There are more forces at work here than a single problem, which make it all the more challenging for the viewer to digest or predict.

Based on true events, me, a non-horror person, suggest that you watch it!

Clap. Clap. Clap. (something you will understand only after watching the film).

3/5
