The Conjuring

The Conjuring ★★★★

A good old-fashioned horror movie that doesn’t rely on cheap gimmicks or illogical plotting but instead takes its time to invest us in the characters and pin us to our seats with its butt-clinching tension and an ominous atmosphere helped by a formal rigor whose fine attention to detail and understanding of genre and structure make its chills and scares more terrifying and effective than we could imagine.
