PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"A sensationally entertaining old-school freakout and one of the smartest, most viscerally effective thrillers in recent memory" (Justin Chang: Variety)
----------------------------------------
"Taut and effective edge-of-the-seat horror, delivered with style and an especially haunting performance by Vera Farmiga" (Sheri Linden: The Hollywood Reporter)
----------------------------------------
"'Conjuring': Haunting, in all the best ways. (...) Old-school and supremely confident in its attack, "The Conjuring" is this year's miracle (...) Rating: ***1/2 (out of four)" (Michael Phillips: Chicago Tribune)
----------------------------------------
"The dread gathers and surges while the blood scarcely trickles in 'The Conjuring', a fantastically effective haunted-house movie" (Manohla Dargis: The New York Times)
----------------------------------------
"Wan masterfully tightens the vise on the audience's nerves, using mood and sound effects for shocks that never feel cheap" (Chris Nashawaty: Entertainment Weekly)
----------------------------------------
"Rattling the nerves while drawing out its palpable sense of dread, 'The Conjuring' is a proudly old-fashioned horror movie that tells its story with sophistication and care" (Tim Grierson : Screendaily)
----------------------------------------
"'The Conjuring' has a (...) solidity that makes the terror to come almost unbearable (...) Rating: ***** (out of five)" (Joshua Rothkopf: Time Out)
----------------------------------------
"The net result is an entertainingly frightening film that keeps the audience in a state of alarmed, but eager, anticipation (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Claudia Puig: USA Today)
----------------------------------------
"Classy old-school horror (...) depends more on its excellent cast and atmospheric direction than cheap gimmicks to raise hairs on the back of your neck. Which it does, quite frequently (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Lou Lumenick: New York Post)
----------------------------------------
"Movies like 'The Conjuring' are less about the battle between God and Satan than the battle between the silly and the scary (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Michael O’Sullivan: The Washington Post)
----------------------------------------
"It scared the living crap out of me. Only at the movies is that a compliment (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Peter Travers: Rolling Stone)
----------------------------------------
"Like its predecessor [Insidious, 2011], it's generic and lazy as storytelling, but this time there's almost enough playful camerawork to distract from the feeble conception." (Ben Sachs: Chicago Reader)
