Mike's Review of The Conjuring
First off, I'm generally not a big fan of the horror genre, so what drew me to this movie? I think the positive reviews, the cast as well as the fact that it is based on true events. I didn't find it particularly scary, perhaps a bit suspenseful in parts, but lets face it, most everything has already been done in the demonic possession/haunted house films. I will give this one props for the very fine cast, direction & editing. I like the relationships too, it made you actually 'feel' for the families who are experiencing this.
