The Conjuring opens in the US to positive reviews

Posted by Matt Foley on July 19, 2013 in News tagged with , ,

James Wan’s (Saw) latest feature film The Conjuring has been greeted by a number of complimentary reviews on its US release, including being touted as the best horror film of the year by the San Francisco Chronicle. While the praise has not been universally gushing, for example see the more measured review in The Wall Street Journal, the 1970’s-set film has been praised for its bold use of sound and, in particular, the sheer number of ‘jump out of your seat’ moments that Wan has conjured. The picture is set for a UK release early next month and has been said to be derivative of its antecedents The Exorcist (1973) and the original The Amityville Horror (1979). The trailer can be found here.
