    I'd be shocked if we see a better horror film in 2013.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Like the wood-grained farmhouse itself — a beautiful piece of production design by Julie Berghoff — The Conjuring has an analog solidity that makes the terror to come almost unbearable.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Wan masterfully tightens the vise on the audience's nerves, using mood and sound effects for shocks that never feel cheap (the harmless kids' game of hide-and-clap has never been so bloodcurdling).

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The dread gathers and surges while the blood scarcely trickles in The Conjuring, a fantastically effective haunted-house movie.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    A sensationally entertaining old-school freakout and one of the smartest, most viscerally effective thrillers in recent memory.

    Variety Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The net result is an entertainingly frightening film that keeps the audience in a state of alarmed, but eager, anticipation.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The pervasive aura of creepiness more than compensates for the low body count and inventive use of sharp instrumentation.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The movie belongs to the women, for once, and The Conjuring doesn't exploit or mangle the female characters in the usual ways. Farmiga, playing a true believer, makes every spectral sighting and human response matter; Taylor is equally fine, and when she's playing a "hide-and-clap" blindfold game with her girls, she's like a kid herself, about to get the jolt of her life.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    As an exercise in classical scare tactics, delivered through an escalating series of primo setpieces, The Conjuring is often supremely effective.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    The Conjuring succeeds because of all that anticipation of dread things to come. The damned thing works you so well that you may even consider leaving halfway through, for fear you'll have a heart attack.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    A sense of dread permeates The Conjuring from the start, and it’s delightful.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    The handsomely shot, expertly button-pushing scare-fest has the polish and the cast to draw older audiences who grew up on shockers built from performances rather than CGI.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • William Goss

    Wan has marshaled his crack sense of supernatural menace into making his most satisfying scare story yet. Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    It scared the living crap out of me. Only at the movies is that a compliment.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    The Conjuring manages to place individuals in one isolated situation after another, where the editing and music are perfectly timed to capitalize on the payoff scare moment. We also get a level of writing and acting rarely seen in this genre, particularly when the mothers bond over the fiercely protective love that a parent feels for a child.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    As horror movies go, The Conjuring is an extremely skillful, entertaining remix album. That's not an insult.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Classy old-school horror, James Wan’s The Conjuring depends more on its excellent cast and atmospheric direction than cheap gimmicks to raise hairs on the back of your neck. Which it does, quite frequently.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Whatever your belief system, this much is gospel: Movies like The Conjuring are less about the battle between God and Satan than the battle between the silly and the scary.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Unexpectedly fresh, alive, and vibrant - and wonderfully traumatizing.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    An uncommonly intense and frightening experience, The Conjuring is the first genuinely scary release in ages by a major studio that features practically no violence and spills only a bit of blood.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    The Conjuring is a throwback to old-school spine tingling, although this movie is less Halloween theme ride and more 1970s post-"Exorcist" terror.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Gabe Toro

    The Conjuring, at points, is terrifying. Wan really understands how active, acrobatic camerawork can enhance the storytelling without breaking the fourth wall, a technique abused by today’s horror craftsmen.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    With The Conjuring, [Wan] once more turns the familiar terrifying, making it easy to fear what’s behind that closed door, or under the bed, or just around the corner, making a creaking noise that doesn’t sound quite right.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    With its forked tongue planted loosely in cheek, this haunted-house flick is enjoyably retro in both style and substance.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The Conjuring digs up no new ground — indeed, it seems almost proud of its old school bona fides — but it plows the classic terrain with a skill that feels a lot like affection. The ghost that’s really haunting this movie is nostalgia.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The Conjuring is like a prequel to 40 years of demonic possession thrillers.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Wan’s film is a sturdily built supernatural chiller, with next-to-no digital effects or gore, and it delivers its scares with a breezy lack of urgency.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Wan seems to critique the third act failings of The Conjuring during the alarmingly superior first half.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The big difference is that "The Exorcist" took the nation by storm with fresh ideas and brilliant filmmaking. The Conjuring conjures with amped-up echoes of old ideas, and represents a bet that they still retain their creepy appeal for today's audience.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    As a ninth-generation descendant of Abigail Faulkner, a convicted Salem witch who only escaped execution because she was pregnant at the time, I call down a terrible malediction upon the people who made this entertaining but indefensible movie. Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    The Conjuring's problem, beyond its lack of a conjuring, is how its otherworldly hokum is stubbornly of this world.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    Though The Conjuring claims to be based on a true story, in truth it's based on every horror film that's come before it.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    If The Conjuring were less of a con job, horror fans would not feel equally as trapped.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    The seen-it-all-before elements of this supernatural thriller directed by the filmmaker who gave us "Saw," however, are more hoary than horrific. It might as well be retitled "The Amityville Exorcist."

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Simon Abrams

    The Conjuring is as toothless as it is because it's two different kinds of boring. The film's plot is explained exhaustively whenever loud noises aren't blaring, and random objects aren't teasingly leaping out at you from the corner of your eye. Full Review
