This decade's definitive horror classic.

You won't see a better crafted creepathon come out of the studios anytime soon.

Perhaps what gives The Conjuring its pulse is the decision to tell the story from the point of view of the investigators -- giving the film a much-needed human layer.

seems like James Wan has found his official ghost movie shooting style, because ... I feel like this film is almost indistinguishable from Insidious.

The back half of the movie is also more formulaic and less interesting in every other way. The characters no longer offer surprises, and the scares are more predictable.
January 26, 2019
On balance, though, The Conjuring is an effective horror tale, with a couple of gut-punch moments, and that's more than can be said of many other genre offerings.

This film surpasses the best of the movie franchise in its ability to unnerve audiences in a uniquely skillful and spine-chilling approach to the haunted house narrative.
October 10, 2018
There's nothing terribly new about Australian director James Wan's sixth film-it's just a testament to good scares.
October 10, 2018
The Conjuring lives up to the marketing and hype, it is easily one of the best horror films so far this year.
August 28, 2018
One of the first films in years where I was legit scared.
August 23, 2018
Traditional tropes are as fresh as ever in what is an unnerving, albeit kitsch horror of remarkable finesse.
August 14, 2018
Wonderful dark elements and a pretty tight script, it's definitely worth the watch, horror fan or not.
May 19, 2018
A great antidote to your standard dehumanizing horror movie.
April 17, 2018
The film is blood-chilling and easily as terrifying, if not more so, than classic '70s horrors like The Exorcist.
April 12, 2018
Whilst all films of this nature have some element of predictability, The Conjuring manages to keep things fresh and the viewer on the edge of their seat.
October 21, 2017
The Conjuring is an especially well-crafted horror movie made almost entirely from practical effects, which is increasingly refreshing to see.
August 17, 2017
The Conjuring is a throwback to classic 1970s horror, the heyday of possession, if you will.
July 11, 2016
The Conjuring is a memorably spooky event; a campfire tale told with a breathless adamancy that stirs the hackles and attacks the imagination.
May 10, 2016
This is no classic, but director James Wan is a deft conductor who orchestrates the scariest ride of the season from threads of familiarly black melodies.
April 9, 2016
At best, "The Conjuring" is a drop or two of rain in the middle of a decades-long horror drought. It won't tide anyone over for more than a couple hours.
