Movie Review: The Conjuring (2013) (#RIPXII)

The Conjuring

Apparently there are many of these Conjuring movies out there but I only knew of this one, so when #RIPXII came around I quickly added it to my list of movies to see. I am sharing the review here so I can post it on the RIP XII review site.


The Conjuring is the perfect horror movie. It includes all of the good stuff: a scary old house, lots of spirits, jump scares, and pretty good acting by Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel) and Patrick Wilson. This move has very little gore. It’s mostly very suspenseful with a lot of “surprises” to make you jump out of your skin. The story isn’t bad either:

Sometimes these types of movies are throw aways where you watch them once and move on, but I could see myself owning a copy and I can for sure see myself watching the other movies in the franchise.

    1. Do you like scary movies in general? This one is pretty tame compared to most. I guess the Annabelle movie that is out right now is part of the same movie franchise. That is what the doll’s name is although the doll is not featured prominently in this movie.

    1. I can handle gore but it’s not realistic most of the time. If there is gore, I need it to look real. LOL. But the jump scare! Oh man I lose it. I got trapped in a haunted house maze once at Universal because my son left me behind and alllll the players decided to follow me around because I was alone. CLOWNS. With chainsaws. They literally grabbed me and pulled my hair from above. I was like that girl in the chicken coop in Texas Chainsaw. Screaming and trying to get away but not successfully.

      1. OMG. That is exactly why I don’t go through haunted houses. It’s like they know you are particularly susceptible to that sort of thing. (I thought haunted houses couldn’t actually grab you though.)

        1. Well, when I went someone told me you have to buy a lanyard to wear if you want them to be hands-off but this was a preview thing so I don’t think the same rules applied. I know from when my son worked Fright Fest that the actors regularly get punched and even have large objects thrown at them like cinder blocks. LOL.
