The Conjuring is about a family that decides to leave the city and moves into a beautiful old farm house in the country. Pretty much as soon as they move in weird and disturbing things start to happen. Woven into the story line of the family is the story of Ed (played by Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine (Played by Vera Farmiga) Warren who are paranormal investigators. The movie shows their back story and what they do to help people, which I found incredibly interesting. Things in the family's house keep getting worse and worse so the mother Carolyn (played by Lili Taylor) seeks out the help of Ed and Lorraine Warren. They agree to help solve the mystery and help the family get rid of the dark presence in the house.
It's creepy and scary and I jumped or covered my eyes several times. Ivy and I were also talking obnoxiously through the scarier moments to break the tension. BUT it was good!!! It scared the crap outta me at times but the story was compelling and fascinating. I also found that because it's not really all that bloody or gory I liked it better than other horror movies like Saw. So my rating is 4 1/2 pop corn buckets out of 5!!
