About "The Conjuring"

       Still basking in the spine-tingling glow of The Conjuring, my head is filled with delightfully horrific wonderment.  It has been a long time since I’ve seen a horror movie so thoughtfully crafted.  Even the tiniest details blended into a harmonious symphony of fear.  Back in the olden days, people used to stand and applaud at the end of a movie.  The Conjuring made me want to reinstate that practice.  It managed to take everything I loved about The Exorcist, The Amityville Horror, and Paranormal Activity, and combine them into an entirely new experience. 
     I love when filmmakers break the molds and add in their own unique twists, instead of falling back on the same old gimmicks.  Needless to say, I was ecstatic to see new zingers instead of the tired, predictable, cheap scares that are often employed.  Every time the opportunity presented itself, for the same old shtick, they went in a different direction.  I cannot wait to see it again!  In fact, it has inspired me to spend a little time discussing ghosts, spirits, and other paranormal entities.  Tomorrow, we will delve further into the supernatural.  For now, I will enjoy the euphoria.  Sleep well.
