Horror Top 10 | #5 The Conjuring

horror-the-conjuringHorror Top 10 | #5 The Conjuring (2013) – “Based on the true case files of the Warrens.”

Creating a new horror film that is truly terrifying to modern audiences is nearly impossible. That’s why James Wan, the creator of Saw and Insidious has earned his stripes as the king of modern horror. The Conjuring stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as Ed and Lorraine Warren who were real paranormal investigators and authors associated with prominent cases of haunting. Their reports inspired The Amityville Horror. The Warren’s come to the assistance of the Perron family who are experiencing increasingly disturbing events in their farmhouse in Rhode Island in 1971.
James Wan takes us back to the 70’s and the eerie feeling of films like The Exorcist and The Amityville Horror, but turns up the volume on the scares while leaving much to the imagination. With plenty of heart stopping scares and breath-holding suspense, The Conjuring might be the scariest movie I’ve ever seen.

Fun Facts about The Conjuring:

Development for the film began over 20 years ago when Ed Warren played a recording of Lorraine’s original interview with Carolyn Perron for producer Tony DeRosa. He said, “If we can’t make this into a film, I don’t know what we can.” It would take another 14 years before The Conjuring saw any signs of life when it officially went into pre-production in 2011.

I love clothing, jewelry, shoe design and weddings as much as cooking in the kitchen with Martha Stewart.

You can catch me on the streets of Portland finding the new, the old, and the indie design or designer. I specialize in arts and entertainment reporting as well as human interest and civil rights. I focus on public relations, event planning, as well as portrait and event photography. I work for AM/PM PR Group in Portland, Oregon, and I am the owner and event planner for Waine Weddings.
