The Conjuring – Ten Ways To Kill Time Until Your Showing!

(Insert some kind of “just hanging around to wait for the movie” joke of your own here; it’s probably funnier than any my sleep-deprived brain can think up).

Just a note here, it may not be the best idea to watch these after you get home from seeing the movie and you’re feeling tense and your nerves are jangled. I was feeling mellow when I made the mistake of watching…

1. ‘Vice’ and ‘The Conjuring‘ Present The 3:07 Project. Here’s the description: The devil’s hour, which takes place at 3:07 AM, is the most haunted time of the day. VICE and The Conjuring selected four directors to create short horror films inspired by that idea. Each one is distinctly twisted and scary.  

Strap in for the final two– especially the final short “The Last Dive,” directed by Jason Eisener. I deeply regret watching that after dark. Jesus! My heart lurched in my chest, I felt it distinctly.

2.  Read up some cool trivia, provided by yours truly, Horror Boom. The piece also has links to others, including the Warren’s Official Site and Museum of the Occult).

3. Check out Dread Central’s piece (and ‘black carpet interviews’ with cast and crew) on the star-studded premiere. We’re jealous (again).

4.  Not enough interviews with cast and crew, you say? Check THIS out from JoBlo.com- it’s exclusive, with Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson

5. Another with Lili Taylor and Ron Livingston (ScreenSlam)

6. THIS is a great one from Screenslam – Lorraine Warren and James Wan! (Part One)

Here’s Part Two. I keep hearing nothing but good things about Lorraine Warren:

7. Here is an extremely informative piece on the true story behind The Conjuring.

8. We have some video of On-set and BTS footage. You want honesty, I didn’t watch them because I strongly suspect they could by spoiler-ish. You can check them out now or wait till after the movie–as we will–to watch. Oh, and it’s HD. WARNING, POSSIBLE SPOILERS!

aaaaand part 2.(also HD). Looks like there may be some B-roll footage, so consider this a SPOILER ALERT!

9. You can try to figure out what the fu what the hell the story is behind this B-roll shot (that ends up in the movie):

10. Poke around The Warren’s official site. It includes the Warrens Occult Museum (link here is for the FB page), with a TON of footage, reading, and discoveries (not all of them pleasant ones) to dive into!

Plus, there’s a ton of pieces here on Horror Boom you may have missed. Just type “conjuring” into the Search Box at the upper right hand corner and it’ll give you everything.

Couple reminders:

  • Don’t forget to bring your screaming voice, maybe some lozenges to soothe your throat with after the credits roll.
  • Either empty your bladder before the movie or wear Depends
  • If you have any spare Xanax lying around, you may want to bring one in the theater with you. Probably already in your tummy!

Film Review – The Conjuring (2013)

Great review – we probably WILL be coming home and watching something like The Fashion Police to get our minds off it Friday night!

 

Jordan and Eddie (The Movie Guys)

Conjuring top

By Jordan

Directed by James Wan

Starring Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Ron Livingston

When Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga) agree to help a distraught family claiming their house to be infested with malevolent spirits, they are unaware that the case they are about to undertake will be the most challenging and distressing of their eventful, tumultuous careers as paranormal researchers. Similarly, when I as an audience member originally intending to see low-brow comedy This is the End changed my mind at the last minute and bought a ticket for The Conjuring, I had no idea just how much my heart was going to be very unimpressed; as it was made to work overtime for nearly the entire 112 minutes…

Having helmed the decade-defining Saw (2003), creepy and atmospheric Dead Silence (2007) and the often terrifying thrill-ride Insidious (2010), director James Wan has established himself as Australia’s premier Master…

The Conjuring – Movie Review

Thanks, Patrick, for sharing such a great review. I’m pretty sure my husband (Mr. Horror Boom–though I’m the horror superfan in the family) ALSO wishes you lived up here in our area, since I’m going to have to pay for his ticket and STILL drag him to go see this with me (especially if there’s a Thursday night preview) like I did with, oh, Insidious, Sinister, Mama, and many others! Lili Taylor blew her voice out screaming? That’s not a huge surprise (poor woman). Uh-oh… my voice was pretty scratchy for 24 hours after seeing Mama in the theater. Oh, and I hear the cast are all wonderful, but that Vera Farmiga more or less steals the show acting-wise.

The Big Séance Podcast

First of all, if you are a fan of this genre of film, YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE! You WILL see this movie! (Although… some of you may want to see an afternoon matinee so that when you leave the theater you can go to a park, watch the bunny rabbits play, and soak in the last hours of sunlight before you’re home checking rooms and corners.)

Okay, now that I have that out of my system, we can get to the review and the details. Last night I attended an advanced screening of the much anticipated film, The Conjuring, starring Patrick Wilson (Insidious, Evening), Vera Farmiga (A&E’s Bates Motel), Ron Livingston (The Odd Life of Timothy Green), and Lili Taylor (The Haunting, HBO’s Six Feet Under, and TV’s Hemlock Grove). The film is directed by James Wan (

Sure, that house looks perfectly safe to live in. I know it’s a horror movie, but you might want to, oh, I don’t know, TURN A LIGHT ON, dudes?

Film Review: ‘The Conjuring’

We were trying to keep our expectations mediocre on this one (notice the word “trying” as opposed to “achieving”) but oh MAN, it’s gonna be hard after reading this review! Plus, the last ghost film we saw rated “R” not so much due to gore but scariness significantly impacted our ability to sleep. Cannot wait! The Conjuring opens in theaters July 19 (and Horror Boom has the countdown widget for all of us to check compulsively).
