The Conjuring 

An enjoyably terrifying haunted-house tale. Now with creepy doll.

In The Conjuring Vera Famiga plays original ghostbuster Lorraine Warren.

A creepy doll is auxiliary to the plot, but man, is it ever a freaky part of The Conjuring. The non-doll story is thus: A couple and their five daughters move into an old, lakeside home they bought on the cheap. Guess what? Haunted. In desperate horror, they turn to acclaimed “demonologists” and paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga). The remaining story sputters along and blends elements from director James Wan’s previous Insidious with the entrenched 1970s haunted house boilerplate, mostly from the Warren’s most famous case—The Amityville Horror. That isn’t a bad thing. Wan is proving himself a master of skillful terror. His aptitude for tense editing is matched only by his creatively creepy ideas. While The Conjuring isn’t anything new, with this skilled hand plucking the strings it is enjoyably terrifying.
