Movie: The Conjuring

The Conjuring movie is now out at UK cinemas and is now available to buy on DVD too. To celebrate, here is a quick rundown of the film, along with the trailer.


This film sees the Warrens, famous ghosthunters, tormented by a malevolent spirit in a quiet, desolate farmhouse. Despite their skills in this arena, the Warrens face a massive test when they come face to face with a terrifying supernatural entity.

The Conjuring Plot

The Conjuring stars Patrick Wilson as Ed Warren and Vera Farmiga as Lorraine Warren. They are called to a house in Rhode Island at the behest of the Perron family who, soon after moving in, are subjected to increasingly terrifying experiences of a supernatural nature. Carolyn Perron seeks out Ed and Lorraine to deal with the evil that lurks within the building.

More about The Conjuring

Set in the 1970s, The Conjuring manages to feel more authentic than other horror movies based on "true stories" despite the implausible nature of the content.  It is genuinely scary in places and decent acting performances are given from the cast.   The Conjuring trailer above gives a good snapshot of the movie as you would expect. Check it out to see if it is your cup of tea!

A sequel for The Conjuring? Already The Conjuring 2?

There is already talk of The Conjuring 2, perhaps to be set in the United Kingdom. Based on the quality of the first The Conjuring movie, it will be one to keep an eye out for!
