Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren work to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in their farmhouse.

The Conjuring was one of the most awesomest and scariest movies I have ever seen and that is mainly because it is based on a true story. It is definitely in my top 10 list and on my must watch again list. Some might disagree with me, but I think this movie tops Insidious 2 and all other movies in many ways. James Wan has really outdone himself directing The Conjuring. The Conjuring kept me reeled in on the edge of my seat and in suspense the majority of the time. It had comedy, suspense, horror, skeptics, ghosts/demon hunters, little blood, no cursing, tension and frightening terror.

The Conjuring is about two paranormal investigators who help families rid their homes of evil spirits/demons and in some cases with the help of a Priest. James Wan explained the backstory of the Perrons residence and surrounding land area very well. I was not lost in this movie and did not have to think or ask myself, hey what’s going on? It shocked me that one witch that died so many years ago, can still ruin so many families lives so many years later and what is even  scarier is as I said above, it is based on a true story.

The actors and actresses did a terrific part with their roles. They were really phenomenal; even the little girls. The mother, Carolyn Perron (Lili Taylor) did such an amazing job that I felt her pain and suffering. I felt many different emotions for her and I would of ran out of that house before even contacting a Paranormal Investigator. But as mentioned in the movie, who will let a family of 7 live in their home for an indefinite amount of time and also the Perrons did not have the finance to move. As the movie goes more in depth, the Perrons found out that even if they had the finance and moved, it would of not rid them of the evil surrounding them because the evil spirits will follow them wherever they go.

Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) also did an incredible job. I would of liked to know why Lorraine locked herself in her bedroom for 7 or 8 days after an exorcism they did several years ago. I think they are keeping that answer for another movie, hopefully. I really like the part where the officer who did not believe in ghosts/demons, got totally spooked out - I was laughing at him and his reactions.

The Conjuring did contain things that you see in other horror movies, such as an old kids toy, a history why things are happening in the home to the new family, a hidden room behind a wall that was not meant to be found, old farm house with a lake, witch and their everlasting power over people :-) and paranormal Investigators who save the family. With that said, The Conjuring may contain all those things, but James Wan made everything seem new to the mind because he is just simply great at what he does.
