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.
