7 Second Reviews: The Conjuring

Steering away from the flailing gore-fest of my last silver screen horror experience Evil Dead, it was refreshing to see The Conjuring go for atmosphere over body count. Displaying maturity some horrors lack, the film actually attempts at delivering a plot with the thrills.

It is by no means a terrifying affair, but I was left jumped and entertained throughout. The characters are developed (pleasantly surprisingly) more than I’m used to in modern horror films, and the spooks are dealt out in a slightly predictable but nonetheless satisfying manner. Not the scariest yet certainly not the shabbiest way to spend an evening. For the record, it was enough to wake me up at 3am…maybe a little tense.

7/10
