5The Conjuring 2013

The Conjuring

It is saying something about films of the past like The Exorcist and The Amityville Horror that The Conjuring, a film very much in that ilk, did as well as it did upon its release in 2013. This tale of a large family moving into their home in the 1970s knocked the YouTube Generation on its keister. Set in a huge house that was in need of a lot of work, this movie played and worked like a relic of a bygone era. Once it becomes apparent to the parents just how much danger their family is in, it is only a matter of time until this large, darkly lit home seems to be working against everybody in the film.
