    The Conjuring (2013)

    It was an alright movie. I'll admit, I didn't let myself get TOO into the movie but I had fun with it. I found myself laughing more than being spooked. Genuinely spooky moments in the movie. Just have an issue with some of the soundtrack. Creepy music gives a lot of scares away. Also, the soaring melodies at the end was very jarring and inappropriate. I did enjoy most of how it was shot. May sound weird but enjoyed the establishing shots although he came close to abusing the slow pan to reveal. One problem and this is with horror movies in general, is that the audience isn't retarded. Don't leave the camera on something that is supposed to be important later and make it obvious. Also, the conclusion happens very suddenly. That's also a bit hasty. Reminds me of Wolf Creek, where it just basically ends. Also, plus for the guy from Office Space being the husband. I knew he looked familiar!
