An Overlook Hotel-sized creepshow that is genuinely frightening.

Leaving slashers behind for the murky uncertainties of the supernatural, James Wan has found a way to expand his talents while driving yet another modern genre shift.

Sacramento News & Review

Director James Wan delivers effective scares, showing more interest in sinewy camera moves and building a slow creep than in mindless gore, but the performances are a mixed bag, and the script repeatedly seeks refuge in the familiar.

Despite having a fairly standard haunted house horror plot, James Wan has created a fun, scary and beautiful looking movie.

It is scary, and it conveys something even rarer in horror films -- the ring of truth.

Empire Magazine

A strong cast and an atmosphere of real dread mean that despite a catalogue of immediately recognisable ghost devices, The Conjuring amounts to more than the sum of its scary parts.

[Wan] combines the ambiance of horror's leisure-suit heyday with the more recent brand of well-timed what's-that-in-the-mirror scares.

It's atmospheric, terrifying, and brilliant in its intricately placed bouts of horror and suspense.

Reno Gazette-Journal

Director James Wan, best known for creating the Saw franchise, delivers his finest work to date. Instead of relying on the graphic, slasher-style techniques that made Saw a hit, Wan turns to old-fashioned suspense, and the payoff is big.

In The Conjuring, the scary casts out the spirit of the silly, permanently, and with a vengeance.

The Conjuring is a well-crafted throwback to old school horror films, and the scares are unrelenting, but fans of the genre may find themselves guessing what is coming next.

Even in the dark, it's clear where this is going -- but Wan does know his way around a haunted house.

David Medsker

With any luck, The Conjuring will lead potential future horror filmmakers raised on a diet of torture porn and slasher films to rethink their approach. One can hope, at least.

The Conjuring uses every stock scare in the horror movie playbook for a dumb, yet charmingly traditional haunted house picture that manages to feel more retro than rehashed.

Wan takes some unpromising ingredients and cooks it with style, tension and heart-stopping surprise moments.

A carefully, masterfully crafted and ever-so-crescendoing exercise in atmospheric dread.

The Conjuring is the Ultimate Fighting Champion of haunting movies. It is all of the movies. Every single one.
