Watch The Conjuring Online There are many historical hauntings that have become famous over the years from their widespread fame thanks to Hollywood: Amityville, Emily Rose and her exorcism, the Snedekers in Connecticut. Their stories have all become famous thanks to the films based off of their “supernatural events”. And, now, Hollywood adds one more name to their long list: the Perron family.

In “The Conjuring”, paranormal hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren are called upon to help the Perron family rid themselves of the odd happenings in their new Rhode Island home.

Sadly for the Perrons, the state of Rhode Island doesn’t actually require home sellers to disclose “documented paranormal and supernatural hauntings” to their potential buyers, so they moved in not knowing a thing about the previous and numerous deaths or the curse of Bathsheba Sherman.

Anyone who has seen the trailer has had a good laugh over a scene that is supposed to invoke fear, but falls short thanks to the ridiculousness of the fact that it’s mocking the game “hide and clap”.

Watch The Conjuring Movie For those who are unfamiliar with this game, it is a lot like “hide and seek” combined with “Marco, Polo”; the seeker is blindfolded while the other players hide, but, once the seeker has counted to ten, they are allowed to ask for three claps from the other players in a vain attempt to find the hiders and “win”. Sound like a lot of fun? Apparently, it’s good to spice the game up with possibly malicious ghosts.

Thankfully, the film is a lot scarier than the trailer makes it look. There are plenty of tense moments, superbly sparse effects, and an excellent score that makes use of a strong, reverb bass to literally shake the audience up. Are there jump scares? Of course there are, but “The Conjuring” uses them sparingly and with tact, rather than cheap scares.

Watch The Conjuring Movie Online It is reasonable to ask is this film actually based on true events, lived and experienced by real, living people or is Hollywood trying to pull another “The Fourth Kind” on its audience? According to all sources available, “The Conjuring” is based off actual events— Bathsheba Sherman really did kill her child, there were multiple deaths on the property, and the Warrens really did examine paranormal events as a living, including the Parron’s Rhode Island farmhouse –although some of the facts given in the film were punched up a little for dramatic effect.

A strong cast of actors, along with some pretty talented effects, bring this incredible tale to life in a rather haunting way, making “The Conjuring” a must see five out of five film.
