Although we've seen it all before, The Conjuring somehow manages to serve it up better. The pacing and camera work are brilliant. The Conjuring is the first horror movie in years that truly delivers the goods--and it does so without gratuitous gore and profanity. Lily Taylor's and Ann Farmiga's performances far outshine those of Patrick Wilson and especially Ron Livingston. In my opinion it is easily the best movie dealing with demonic possession since The Exorcist.
