Full Article Review 
(Summarized review can be found here:

“The Conjuring” is another horror-genre masterpiece from James Wan (the director for Insidious, Saw). It has a very good plot which is based on a true story. The storyline was delivered interestingly with a very well-paced story progression. It began with the introduction of the Warren with another mysterious case prior to the main event in the movie, giving us an impression of how their work would be.  After the introduction of the main protagonists, the story progressed to the introduction of the victims in the main event, the Perron family. Overall, the character development was well done in this movie. It’s totally different from other horror movies nowadays whereby those characters were introduced superficially and just meant to die. In this film, there was an effort in making us know the characters more.

Besides that, the cinematography of the movie is also noteworthy. Instead of focusing on gory/blood-filled/gross scenes as seen in typical scary movies nowadays, it focuses on filming the scene in an angle with creepy background. This can create a scary atmosphere for the audience. Apart from that, this was complimented with the awesome background music which is very intense and mood-agonizing. These two elements are able to make the audience feel what a genuine fear is.

In acting aspect, most of the actor and actresses have presented a convincing acting except a minority of them basically having emotionless facial expression. (One obvious example is the actor for Roger Perron who basically has the same facial expression throughout the whole movie)

However, I was a bit disappointed with the make-up and design for the “ghost”/demon/evil in this movie. The hand clapping and the sudden appearance were quite shocking but when the camera focused onto the face of the “ghost”, it was really a bit of a letdown and it was not as horrifying as I have expected.

Overall, it was an old-school style horror movie which is really aiming to induce fear instead of visually disturbing the audience.

What I like about the movie:
  1. Good plot with well-paced character introduction.
  2. Awesome cinematography
  3. Intense Background music
What I dislike about the movie:
  1. Emotionless acting by some actor
  2. Disappointing make-up presentation of the demon/ghost

This movie deserves a 8.5/10.0!

It’s easily one of the best scary movie in the recent years. Horror movie fans, this is a must watch movie for you!

To those who indulge in Final Destination kind of gory/bloody scenes, then most probably you won’t like this film because the amount of blood spilled in this movie is actually minimal.
