The Conjuring 
An outstanding Horror
3.5/4 stars

"Sometimes it's better to keep the genie in the bottle."

After reading a lot about it and hearing the rave reviews, I finally sat in my cosy sofa to watch this, according to sources, extreme creepy horror and enjoy every second of it. I was very curious if this film would tickle my nerves and let a scary and eerie feeling descend all over me.
Ultimately it wasn't so ...
Throw "The Exorcist", "The Changeling", "The Amityville Horror", "Poltergeist" and "Paranormal Activity" together, shake it well and finish it with masterly camera work, and you get this horror gem as a result. Only "Drag me to hell" also got my appreciation and I judged this one as being a decent horror film since they don't make them so well anymore recent years. Nowadays it's more teen-horror like Twilight and paranormal nonsense like Paranormal Activity and crappy footage horror.
Wan however has the talent to make a sizzling movie using the tension and an image-building that fascinates you and makes sure you keep on watching. It's again full of cliches and situations that are used countless times in other films. And yet it's all subtly intertwined and transcends the other horror crap that I have been presented with before.
So, an outstanding horror with a somewhat disappointing ending. It gave me a feeling as if it needed to be finished in a rush. Most films would still end up with an appearance in the music box. This movie is at that point masterfully,because here it doesn't happen.

The fact that this film is based on a true story (which I doubt) gives this film an extra dimension.
