One of the best ghost stories and haunted house thrillers in years, The Conjuring follows the famed Warrens as they investigate the haunting of the Perron family after they move into a farmhouse in Rhode Island.

The Warren’s, by the time of this case were not as well known as they would later become. A year prior to investigating the Perron’s residence they became involved with Possessed doll Annabelle. Their encounter with her is scene in the opening of this film. After this case they would later become one of the teams to investigate the Amityville haunting. While many of their cases have been greatly criticized and debunked, the Perron haunting hasn’t experienced as much backlash. That was until the films release. The current residents are suing Warner Brothers for damages after their home has been targeted several times.

Considered one of the best Supernatural Thrillers in years, The Conjuring doesn’t oversaturate itself with jump scares, relying heavily on its atmospheric tone and the suspense in the silence. James Wan, writers Chad and Carey W. Hayes and the actors all stir the pot and create an excellent ghost story that is soon to be considered a classic in the genre.

Not only is this films success based on the opinions of the relative few, The Conjuring has also experienced financial success. While Annabelle the prequel/spinoff wasn’t as successful The Conjuring 2 was a success and other prequels, sequels and spinoffs are said to be great as well. While The Conjuring carries a lot of weight with it there is no shame and in trying to take its energy and put it into another film. We all know how success works in Hollywood and when you find something that brings in the mula you usually try to milk it for what it is worth and The Conjuring is worth a lot.
