The Conuring is the type of movie that does not need to be reviewed. If you’re Latino or a teen, chances are you will run to the movie, as you are the built in audience that the studio knows wil be running to it.
Horror movies have a built in fan base and very rarely does a review matter. You’re either going to see it or you’re not.
The Conjuring is one of the biggest scams at the movies – ever – in my opinion.
It is Rated-R. However, it seems to be a marketing ploy from the studio rather than something it deserves. There is nothing scary about it. Nothing gory. No blood. No one even says ‘F’ in the movie. It truly is a PG-13 movie, at best, and Poltergeist, which was Rated PG (before the advent of the PG-13 rating) was scarier. Much.
In The Conjuring a family encounters spirits living among them in their new New England farmhouse. While the movie The Conjuring ‘takes place’ in New England, the movie was filmed in North Carolina.
I wasn’t scared once at the screening of the movie I attended but, the two friends I brought were both scared and had to sleep with the lights on. And one is 40, the other is 27. And both are gay males.
The director of The Conjuring, James Wan, is best known for directing the first movie in the Saw franchise and Insidious and the upcoming Fast & Furious 7 (summer 2014).
