Very very predictable, including the post credit scene !!!
Thanks for the memories!
I like movies that are aware of what they are selling... without [any] greater aspirations than to make people laugh and that's it.
This is a gorgeous movie made by a gorgeous spirit.
I saw this movie in theaters back in 2013 and I have to say. I enjoyed it. The movie definitely had it's scary moments but it wasn't that scary. That's whats great about this movie, it's not scary and it was still a good movie. The actors who play as Ed and Lorraine Warren really did it for me. Patrick Wilson (Who most people know from Insidious and The Phantom of the Opera) and Vera Farmiga (Best known for Bates Motel) have amazing chemistry and certainly pull off the power couple. The movie focuses quite a bit on their relationship while still focusing on horror.
The storyline of this movie is awesome! I don't know how it doesn't have a 10/10 rating! This movie is very scary in parts and is just overall a very good movie.
James Wan successfully made a compelling demonic possession film loosely based on true accounts. Written by Chad Hayes, the technical detail here is praiseworthy and the acting all around is convincing and competent.There are so many layers here to peel. Firstly is the story of Ed and Lorraine Warren - played with great prowess by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, are the paranormal investigators finds as well as debunks activities of the unknown. Chad Hayes was very clever in including moments were the Warrens are skeptical and actively try to find more rational explanations of things going bump in the night, which gives credence to the what happens to the Porren family in the story. The Porrens are the family being haunted; I won't say by since part of the fun is to discover the motivation behind the possession. Special commendation must be given to Lili Taylor for her performance as you'll discover in the end, while Ron Livingstone is believable as the bewildered father. However, the star of the show is definitely, James Wan; whose direction, clever use of light and shadow, silence and sound as well as tight camera angles, gives you a thoroughly psychologically eerie atmosphere that keeps you in a state of suspense for most of the film. This is old school horror film with refined technical finesse. If I had any criticism of the film, it's the demon that is doing the haunting, could have been more sinister, such as devil in The Exorcist (1973). A really good ghost story. Recommended.
Although this was a great horror movie, it has good storyline which you'll never confuse even at first watch.
Most of characters are good polished and you never surprise by their acts which make this movie a classic one in horror genre.
Depiction of paranormal characters is believable and makes you curious to watch them accurately and never overused them. Always try to make frightening situations versus use paranormal characters.
One of the best factors which distinguish this movie in horror genre is psychological descriptive reasons for every paranormal activities that occurred in whole movie and you always comprehend about circumstances.
Some foly effects are exaggerated and made some scenes artificial.
I believe this movie can be a classic exemplary in super-natural horror genre.
