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.
