Lee’s review published on Letterboxd:
The Conjuring is an exceptionally effective horror film. One that utilizes both exceptional sound and camerawork to generate its genuine tension, thanks to director James Wan, “Insidious”, “Insidious:Chapter 2”, “The Conjuring 2”, “Furious 7”, “Aquaman”. Yet there’s a heart surrounding it’s characters, particularly from its lead stars Patrick Wilson & Vera Farmiga, as paranormal investigators Ed & Lorraine Warren. The Conjuring runs in the realms of a campier version of The Exorcist. Nonetheless The Conjuring is an efficient horror movie, that stands as a classic in its own generation.
