Excerpt: La clave de que esta película dé tanto miedo y tenga tanto éxito es que está basada en unos hechos reales, lo que hace que a la gente le llegue más. Pero por ello, Wan se ha controlado demasiado, y la película no le ha quedado tan divertida como “Insidious” y sí más previsible.
Excerpt: The story of the Perron family’s frightening ordeal with increasingly bloodcurdling paranormal activity in their newly purchased farmhouse is a sensational spectacle of old-school frights. If Wan fails to ever make anything as wildly entertaining and engaging as this, then this should proudly go down as his horror masterpiece.
Excerpt: The Conjuring, a classically crafted, ruthlessly spooky, and retro-fashioned fright film that looks and feels like a child of the 1970s, remembers it’s scarier not to always see what’s going bump in the night.
Excerpt: The Conjuring is a viscerally thrilling piece of cinema, designed purely and solely to evoke spooky scares with an old-fashioned style that, after years of Torture Porn inundation, feels fresh again.
Excerpt: “The Conjuring” backs up its creaking floor and slamming door tropes with episodes of all-out terror to send its audience to bed with a worrisome feeling in the pit of their stomachs. Nightmares may follow.
