The Conjuring

The promotional materials for The Conjuring have played up the whole “Based on a true story” bit, and while there’s always room to speculate where fact and fiction meet in films, The Conjuring gets points for delivering a legitimately scary story. There’s no sex, nudity, drug use, or significant language – The Conjuring‘s R rating comes purely from scares, and it earns that rating. It’s old-school, creepy horror that works thanks to director James Wan’s surprisingly strong work, along with solid performances from Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor. Definitely worth seeing in theaters.
