The Conjuring (Movie Review)

First off, Happy Hallow-Freaking-Ween, awesome nerds! Tell me what you guys are up to for tonight or just in general for this weekend!
Release Date: July 19, 2013
Genre: Horror
In 1970, paranormal investigators and demonologists Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) and Ed (Patrick Wilson) Warren are summoned to the home of Carolyn (Lili Taylor) and Roger (Ron Livingston) Perron. The Perrons and their five daughters have recently moved into a secluded farmhouse, where a supernatural presence has made itself known. Though the manifestations are relatively benign at first, events soon escalate in horrifying fashion, especially after the Warrens discover the house's macabre history.

Damn... This movie was so intense that my heart dropped in my stomach every single time that I watch this movie. Thankfully, it was with family members who like to joke about malevolent spirits and just dreadful stuff so we could never take this seriously. 

But even after you turn the lights on for The Conjuring, it will have you haunted by the images that played on the screen. Since this was my second time watching the movie, I knew when to scare the shit out of everyone because in regards to the fun of Halloween. 

Scary movies with the family is impossible to turn down and if you ever meet us, well, you will be changed forever. Just kidding. My family isn't that bad.

Anyways, this movie was actually quite terrifying and it's not because of what happens in the movie, although heart-dropping, but the story of Ed and Lorraine. Their family encounters some of the most horrific things and sadly, as does their daughter. As a kid, anything like this would be traumatizing to watch the ending of The Conjuring would make me not want to hug or kiss my mother after what I had seen.

Another thing is that the actual history of this house makes me jump in my skin every single time. If you do your history on the background story of this movie, it definitely will having you watching your back as you feel someone watching you or just question everything.

I am going to rate this book a solid 5 out of 5 stars. I would rate it higher but that's impossible. I think that this movie is a must-watch especially if you are a horror movie buff. I can't live through scary moments but I can handle a few scary movies, here and there.

A giveaway is happening until November 1, 2015 at 12:00AM MST for the awesome book, Sharon M. Johnston's Divided. Here is the Rafflecopter information:

Enter and I will pick a random winner on November 1, 2015.

Blog you later, awesome nerds.
