Product Description

Conjuring, The (BIL/Blu-ray)

Amazon.ca

Director James Wan made a splash in the horror genre with Saw, a rather ingenious midnight movie that spawned a legion of splattery imitators. Rather than continue in that overtly grody mode, however, Wan chose to move on, with a series of films (most notably Dead Silence and Insidious) that showed a healthy appreciation of the classics in the field, as well as a gratifying progression of skills behind the camera. The Conjuring stands as the moment when Wan puts it all together, fashioning a terrifically freaky haunted-house movie that respects its audience, even when it's busy finding new ways to launch them out of their seats. Based on ostensibly true events, the film works as something of a thesis on scary movies, featuring all of the essential elements--a creaky door here, a scary doll there, dark corners, well, everywhere--as well as a command of old-school pacing. Unlike the majority of in-your-face modern horror, it knows when to hold back, and when to go for absolute broke. Chad and Carey Hayes's script follows Lorraine and Ed Warren (Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson), a pair of married paranormal investigators dealing with the increasing mental toll of their profession. When they take on the case of a haunted Connecticut farmhouse, their misgivings come to a terrifying head. And then some. Wan gets some fantastic performances from his cast, particularly from the alternately steely and fragile Farmiga, and Lili Taylor, whose inspired work here more than compensates for her appearance in the misguided remake of The Haunting. Together, they make it unnervingly easy to believe in the things in the shadows. The most impressive element of The Conjuring, though, ultimately proves to be its utter relentlessness, steadily cranking the screws without resorting to easy jump scares to tone down the tension. While always playing fair, it qualifies as one of those rare scary movies that put the viewer through the absolute wringer, without leaving them feeling ill-used at the end. Prepare to jump. --Andrew Wright

This is the first horror movie I have ever bought the story the acting the cinematography is great. The psychological scares are a million times better then any visual or special effect scare. Great movie!

What a disappointment! When I read that it was by the director of Saw I had high hopes for real innovation. Was I wrong. This was formula, pure and simple, and not good formula at that. Frankly, it looks like a low budget movie by a first-time film maker. The really disappointing thing is that it isn't, it's by a director who has done so much better. I won't even keep the DVD.

It's a rare film that manages to do more with less. There is less indiscriminate violence and gratuitous gore in this film than in much of what is out there, but James Wan (whose "Saw" and "Insidioius" I quite enjoyed) still brought the scares. The story is a typical haunted house/possessed person yarn; it lacks any real driving plot or mysterious element. No matter. Wan builds the suspense and intensity as the picture goes on, using even the most mundane objects in the film (a wind chime; a music box) to evoke dread. The final moments of the film, where all will either be resolved or irrevocably destroyed, are as gripping as any I've seen.

The two lead actors, Ron Livingston from Office Space and Lili Taylor from I Shot Andy Warhol and High Fidelity (among many others), were wonderfully understated and eminently genuine. I have a problem with protagonists in horror films who are either saccharine in their ostensible perfection; eye-rollingly foolish in their naivete; or simply hateful. Livingston and Taylor are less sympathetic than they are believable, and in that, one ends up hoping (and, quite appropriately, praying) that everything with them and their lovely family will turn out all right. More wooden are Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, who play the "ghostbusters" of the picture. I understand that such investigators probably have to be somewhat clinical about their work with the paranormal, but their demeanour comes across as more detached than professional.

With films like "Paranormal Activity", "Insidious", "Sinister", and the like, there is a bit of a glut of these types of films. "The Conjuring" stands apart because the actors are good, the director has gone for gusts (of wind) over guts, and it's just plain frightening. It's well worth watching at least once, and would undoubtedly warrant repeat viewings for many fans.

This movie is about the Perron family, which includes a mother, father and five daughters, who move into their new home in Harrisville, Rhode Island and started having strange encounters with ghosts.

Upon research, they discovered that 8 generations of a family had inhabited their farmhouse and more than 2 dozen family members had died there - some of the deaths were a result of suicide.
Unable to ignore the ghosts who start having direct contact with the family members, Mrs. Perron traces down paranormal researchers, Ed and Lorraine Warren, to try make sense of their bizarre living conditions.

The Conjuring is a pretty typical ghost/exorcist story. One thing that stands out about the Conjuring is that its based on real life events. While watching the movie, there were many parts that were really scary. I heard many gasps and screams from the movie theatre audience. It's worth it to watch The Conjuring atleast once!

The plot to this new chiller is hardly original, and the characters are predictable.

However, there are some genuinely good scares, and the set pieces are nice.

The downsides are the "all witches are evil" and "the witches at the Salem trials were really witches"... it was unforgivable hokiness.

The music is good and the creepy doll and music box are a nice touch.

Good to see once, but no replay value.

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on March 7 2015
Format: DVD
Based on a true story, the film opens with an incident in which Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) Warren explain the difference between ghosts and demonic possession, both being similar to owning cats. Ed has a room full of artifacts that would make "Riley's Believe it or Not" museum green with envy. Hey don't touch the monkey!

Meanwhile the Perron family has moved into a house in Harrisville, RI, in 1971 BF (before flashlights). They discover their basement door has been boarded over, because God knows spirits can't pass through wood. The Perron family has a pack of screaming daughters, just right for a horror flick.

Needless to say the plot and subplot come together with wonderfully horrific results. Like most films the creepiness builds to a climax. This particular film has some minor religious overtones to it as one would expect with an exorcism type production. Good film to watch in the dark. Take the kids. Zombie soundtrack.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. WARNING: Does use the word "groovy" and "The Brady Bunch" is on TV in the background.

"How can you tell if a movie really scares the hell out of you"it's
when you're watching it and your feet is on the ground and you see
the bed scene as in this one,you pull your feet up and tuck it under your
body,then you give yourself that little yelp that people normally do when it's
a freighting end,that you know is coming,this is what the Conjuring will do,
but it's lacking in so many other areas as in wording like the knocking three
times,Wow I guess nobody's home,the movie don't have that artistic horror
feel like in the sixties or seventy's,it's almost a tame very tame version of the
[Scream] franchise but this one has Ghost that's around every corner,the first movie
I saw by director [James Wan] was Dead Silence,that movie was more Silence than
golden,if you know what I mean,the next was Saw which I didn't even know he did,
until I saw this movie the Conjuring.can't wait to see what he does with Insidious.
"chapter two"you know I can pick the movie apart but why the hell should I bother,
Talk is So Cheap,if we pay Two bucks for any movie instead of $24.99 I wouldn't even
write a review...you can Count on That One.
There is a Ton of special Features on this Disc.it's best to watch that First it will make
the movie seem better to you.Really,
2.4:1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
5.1 Dolby Digital.
Runtime 112 Minutes.
I Love The Movie For What It Is.And Maybe More.
