Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
Maybe it’s because I watched this movie in the daytime with the lights on, or maybe it’s because I’ve seen so many similar films by now, but I found The Conjuring to be pretty average for a horror movie. The ensemble cast does a fine job, but the script feels like it’s simply going through the motions: dutifully checking off all the standard moments you would expect to see in a typical ghost movie. I felt like I’d seen it all before. The actual scary part of this film is that it claims to be based on real life events.
Final Grade: C-
Thanks for reading!
