Horror thriller “The Conjuring” has become one of the biggest films of the summer, bringing in more than $40 million in just a few days. The movie has already earned an 8.2 rating at IMDb and rave reviews from Twitter users.
Paranormal investigators go to a farmhouse to inquire about a “dark presence” that has been haunting the home in the James Wan-directed film. Wan is responsible for bone-chilling thrillers such as “Saw” and “Insidious.”
Lorraine Warren, played by Vera Farmiga, and Ed Warren, played by Patrick Wilson, have no idea what lies ahead for them in the terrifying home. Lili Taylor plays the matriarch of the family, Carolyn Perron, and Ron Livingston plays the head of the home, Roger Perron.
The horror flick is purportedly based on a true story and takes place in Harrisville, R.I., in 1971. The Perron family members believe they have moved into their dream home, but they have no idea a bloody murder happened there in 1863. Ghosts terrorized previous owners for a century, unbeknownst to the Perrons. Multiple spirits plague the family, with the youngest of its members being approached the most because she is the most vulnerable. Little April, played by Kyla Deaver, even has a relationship with one of the apparitions.
“The Conjuring” is supposed to be “the terrifying truth,” and it comes with the freaky tagline, “look what you made me do.” Fans of the film couldn’t help but take to Twitter to gush about what they had seen over the weekend:
The Conjuring is just Harry Potter getting the most out of his Invisibility Cloak.
