                It is James wan screen play which is smartly written and brilliantly executed horror flick in the recent decade.It’s the subtle and steady build-up of suspense and psychological tension, coupled with sudden spine-chilling scares and dramatic silences that make you go numb with fear. In specific the audience  felt annoying in the first 30 min with shhshh..and boo sounds, but sooner they started edgy seat and towards the climax it was dead-drop silence. Basement scene with Lili & Lorraine, the boutique scene, hide-seek game,first visit of Lorraine to the house, and last 30 minutes are nerve-wrecking..Thought Wan borrows from many horror classics, it is unique because of new camera angles and the dark-horror execution.
         There are no cheap thrills, no over-the-top sound effects, no annoying camera angle, overindulgence in gore or visual grossness and no aping horror’s cult classic. . Editing by Kirk Morri is tight and no dull or short moment from the start. Background score by Joseph Bishara is spine chilling and fantastic with instruments sounds at right place…the opening and end title card music deserves special mention ..and the climax it is blistering!!!!!….on the performances, every body is excellent though Lilli Taylor cuts a sympathetic figure as a helpless mother, and Vera Farmiga is nothing short of terrific as a woman whose special abilities make her both powerful and vulnerable.Patrick and Ron does good with their role.Make up, the 70’s costumes and special effects are remarkable.Not but last the photography by John Leo nett is haunting throughout the movie…the locations and music evenly supports the it is experimental in many scenes and laudable...


The movie follows the same pattern of horror and demon possessed movies..heavily borrowed from the Exorcist,Mama, The cult classic Omen etc…Based on the true story of Warren in 70’s does the space only at end title card..little more documentation on the true story would have been more terrifying. Nothing great flaws, though it ends in similar fashion but with style….

The Conjuring’  takes all the familiar elements of exorcism based horror movies and puts a deadly new spin on them,well made horror-paranormal movie…. result ..sure to have goosebumps….Easily one of the scariest movie in this decade...strictly watch it in theaters , to experience the fear with digital sound effects .…..

Verdict: 7.5/10( 1 for Vera & Lili Taylor, 1 for casting & performances, 1 for Photography, 1 for background score, 1 for the screenplay, 1 for the direction, 1 for makeup & costumes, .5 for special effects)

Movie canvas Punch:   The Conjuring…..dark& menacing, haunting, scary….genuinely horrifying
