'The Conjuring' Review

Some film directors were sent to us, by divine right, to perform certain tasks. Much like Martin Scorsese had a calling to stitch together long, swooping takes of criminal behavior set to the tunes of the Rolling Stones, director James Wan also has a providential purpose. It's a very specific way of giving you a heart attack.
It's not just the “jump scare.” That's far too simple. As Wan showed in 'Insidious' - and does so even more so in his new film, 'The Conjuring' - he is the unrivaled champion of a specific sort of hold-your-breath scene, where you know the jump is just about to happen. But he holds it. And holds it. And holds it just a little bit more. And just when you think it's a goof or a head-fake, BLAM!, the thing you knew was going to pop out at you, pops out you - and there's a good chance you just shouted and made a fool of yourself.

Director James Wan has built a career out of horrifying audiences and 'The Conjuring' looks to be no different. The new poster for the film suggests that it will have more in common with the creepy chills of 'Insidious' than the gross-out gore of the 'Saw' series, which will be a relief to horror fans with weak stomachs.
