Blu-ray Review: The Conjuring

(NOTE: You Tube clip and images not exactly showing up loud and clear? When you click on the link to read more, you’ll see them just fine on Rhino’s Horror)

Check out this excellent review of The Conjuring (including the features on the Blu-ray) …which Horror Boom agrees with 100%.  I actually lost track of the number of times I screamed aloud in panic. A handful of grown men in the theater got pretty vocal too, including one guy to the left opposite row from where we sat, who actually did a spit take when he made the mistake of sipping his beverage right before the wardrobe jump scene. At one point–I distinctly recall it was during the scene that took place in total fucking daylight where the Warrens played back their recording of the interview with Andrea and heard …well, what they heard instead of her voice… I began unintentionally squeezing the other half of Horror Boom’s (my husband) hand so tight he winced and decided to just put his hand on my arm instead. See, this is why I kept running into a brick wall a couple of sentences in when I sat down to write a review of The Conjuring after seeing it in a packed theater–the scares and mood were so visceral I still can’t write a traditionally-structured review*. At this point, anyway, I’ve resigned myself to having to say the hell with it and just ended up having to relate my various reactions to the movie instead.

As for the Blu-ray features, Ryan’s got them covered. The Conjuring Blu-ray is going on our Christmas list just for the “Scaring the @#$% Out of You” featurette alone. Be sure to give this a read! Not to mention, no spoilers. If you haven’t seen it yet but have been meaning to …what are you waiting for?

*I’ve had the same thing happen with several other horror movies– the French horror film Inside comes to mind as an example. Don’t get me started…

Seeing as how I never got the chance to review James Wan’s The Conjuring when it scared up theaters back in July, I figured a Blu-ray review only made sense. Hitting shelves on October 22nd, acclaimed director James Wan’s The Conjuring follows a pair of paranormal investigators who help a family haunted by a demonic force, only to find themselves trapped in their own horrifying nightmare. The film stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson as Ed and Lorraine Warren; Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor as Roger and Carolyn Perron.

  1. It is about time to tell the truth about Conjuring that the facts are available that there has never been a murder hanging suicide at our farm. It has been researched by several people including myself. to question credibility of story. Bathsheba Sherman never an Arnold never lived here no death associated with her discovered in records or historical society. She was a Baptist buried by a Baptist minister Doubt if she was considered witch etc. I am the current owner and that Warner Bros New Line Cinema put out a movie and says it is based on truth and names our town without bothering to do their own research. Now we are suffering from the consequences of trespassers thrill seekers for something we had nothing to do with. We will never have a sense of security or peace in our retirement and with health issues. IT IS TIME FOR THE TRUTH.

    • Sorry to hear you are going through what you are with trespassers and that your privacy has been invaded.
