The movie really did focus on the Warrens...and the Perrons(?) and that was where the strength was. Like all these possession flicks they suffered the 90 some odd minutes of really nice mood/subtlety...basically spoiled by the 'BIG SHOWDOWN' with requisite showy Fx. To it's credit, you CARED...so it worked. That's me nitpicky. You should dig it. GREAT sound design and VERY VERY detailed 70's period detail. Hell...it's a good movie. You'll like it. Nice little cherry at the end if you are paying attention.

    If you're into the ghost/spirit stuff and/or the Warrens, you'll probably like this movie as well as the cherry that jd mentioned. The whole movie is well crafted. I agree with jd that the good acting and solid characters are key. Personally, I didn't get as many jump scares as I did chill bumps, which I thought was kind of cool.

    Great Stuff. Thanks guys.

    Tiger, I especially like your chill-scares comment.

    I saw Insidious again last night with my friends who hadn't seen it before. I like it, but not as much as everyone else seemed to. But I'm expecting The Conjuring to be better.

    JD, I think we need another rally: Support R-Rated Horror!
    jerseydevil and LetTigerIn like this.

    I want to watch Insidious, but some people have said it's a Poltergeist rip. Remember that clown doll from Poltergeist? It haunts my dreams! :O

    I'll watch Insidious eventually.

    I loved Insidious but my opinion carries little weight since I've never seen Poltergeist.

    It's not a bad idea.

    You guys that are expecting Conjuring to be better than Insidious may be let down. I remember enjoying Insidious more, simply because it didn't spend 1/2 the movie under the guise of a true story trying to establish realism, and then blowing things the hell up(literally). Conjuring was good, but it's kind of the tale of two movies. Insidious was kooky and a little frayed at the edges, especially at the end...but I think the tone was a lot more consistent. Conjuring does have better performances though...so I am interested to see what you guys think.

    Long time ago...decent fx(pretty sure it was Savini, although they missed an advertising point on that box if it was). Worth about $8 because you will watch once and prolly never again. Standard slasher stuff.

    Gothca. I went ahead and ordered it because, yes, Savini and also I like Blue Underground. So we'll see.
