The Conjuring

The Conjuring ★★★★

Took me long enough to watch this movie, but damn was it worth it. I'm not religious at all, quite the opposite but I can definitely enjoy a good religious horror movie. And it's no wonder The Conjuring is as popular as it is, what a masterful use of suspense and jumpscares and classic horror tropes that shouldn't scare me but still do. I'd be remiss not to mention how fucking stupid the family is though. Dog dies immediately after moving in, dead birds all over the place, boarded up basement, daughter starts sleepwalking for the first time in years, other daughter starts seeing entities, and they're still like "it's just the wind sweetie :) go back to bed". To be fair they did call paranormal investigators but like, fuck, took you long enough huh. Also there are two lines of dialogue in this movie where one character uses the term "far-out" and another says "groovy" immediately after. Anyway great movie, can't wait to watch more movies in the Conjuring universe.
