The first reviews are popping up, and it seems like this will be an instant classic. Director James Wan really impressed me with "Insidious" and supposedly he knocks this one out of the park.

The film is rated R not because of violence or language, but because it's too damn intense and scary.

Justin Chang – Variety:

“It takes almost no time for “The Conjuring” to immerse the viewer in its spell, as it teases seemingly minor jolts into frissons of terror, and turns a simple game of hide-and-seek into a tour de force of sustained excitement… The film achieves its most startling effects through motion, not stasis. Wan’s command of horror technique isn’t just virtuosic; it’s borderline rhapsodic, playing the audience like Hitchcock’s proverbial piano.”

I'm not going to read anymore about the film so I'm as green as possible when I see it. This film gets my "CAN'T WAIT" stamp. Comes out July 19th.

I can't be the only one who doesn't "get" scary movies am I?  Often times they're just ridiculous/not scary and overall bad films IMO.

I mean if you don't like scary movies then you don't like them.  But of course there are tons of terrible horror films.  Just like there are tons of crappy comedies, action films, dramas etc.

James Wan didn't do Sinster, I think you mean Insidious.

 

This does look good though.

That's right, for some reason I keep wanting to think he did Sinister.  Well obviously I thought Sinister was done well, and it gave me the same creepy feeling as the first half of Insidious.

 

To me the first half of Insidious was terrifying, but it came off the rails in the second half with all the other dimension stuff.

I liked both personally. Insidious 2 comes out on September 13 btw.

Yeah I definitely need to go back and rewatch Insidious.  I saw it in theaters without knowing what to expect and was thrown for a loop when it went from "haunted house" to "alternate dimension twilight zone". 

 

Wan has a very unique talent for crafting suspense on-screen.  He really is virtuosic in that way.

James Wan was also behind the original 'Saw' as I recall.

This looks pretty good.
