Missed it in the theaters? Wondering what all the buzz is? Trying to conjure up plans to see it soon? Never fear, “The Conjuring” is here. Releasing on Oct. 22 and receiving a green review of 68 out of 100 on metacritic.com, “The Conjuring” is a definite horror movie must.

Many students and people around the world went to see this paranormal horror movie when it was in theaters, but many missed their chance and now eagerly await its DVD release in the next week.

Junior Ashlyn Walgren said, “[I’d rate it as a] 7; it had very scary moments, but none that made my heart race.”

Creepy things happen in “The Conjuring.” Dolls come to life, ghosts torment everyone and at least one daughter becomes friends with a creepy little boy murdered back in the 1920s.

The movie is based off the true stories of Roger and Carolyn Perron and their daughters as they moved into a big, old farmhouse. As soon as they moved in, there was no time wasted before paranormal things occurred. First with the family dog not entering the house to finding the same dog dead on the front lawn and Carolyn covered in mysterious bruises to nearly losing the life of the mother and daughter.

Lou Lumenick of the New York Post said, “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.”

“The Conjuring” is definitely a horror movie must watch. It’s already in some top 100 best horror movie lists of all time. Leaving you “on the edge of your seat,” it’s violent, mysterious and intense, and it takes you on a psychological and emotional ride.

Regarding if she’d watch “The Conjuring” again, Walgren said, “I would on a rainy day, but I wouldn’t make a point to watch it again, but I would recommend it, even though [I thought] it wasn’t too scary.”
