Upon watching The Conjuring this week. I wanted to inform everyone of the true events behind the movie and my review of it. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how well they portrayed the characters and how almost accurate the whole movie was compared to the real version. My standards for horror/paranormal movies are pretty high up due to the fact that I am a huge horror fan and paranormal researcher so of course, I am very picky. When I sat down in the theater, I expected some up to date special effects and a movie “loosely” based on true events. Everyone has to admit… Horror movies are nothing like they used to be. I grew up watching The Exorcist, Nightmare on Elm Street, Pet Cemetery, etc and honestly, I have not liked a horror movie in years…until I watched The Conjuring. Yes, there were no crazy special effects and they kept to the true storyline without all the un-needed dramatizations and I think that’s what appealed to me. True stories are always the scariest because people know they are real and documented.
