The Conjuring ★★½

Indiewire top 100 greatest horror films challenge - #25

The Conjuring certainly has some terrifying moments however; these are over shadowed by too many clichés & jump scare tactics. The story is harrowing enough and didn’t need to rely on such cheap thrills. There isn’t too much to the characters either which meant my concern for them was non-existent. It’s not a bad film but there isn’t anything that makes me think it’s a good one either - it’s somewhere in between.
