Adding to its charm with superlative leads in Ed and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson) and a director with an intense style (James Wan), The Conjuring's allure for me is a polished, yet gritty and grim snapshot into the lives of the Warren and Perron families back in 1970. What we see in the film is the attempted breakdown of the Perron's with matriarch Carolyn (played by Lili Taylor) as a conduit for demonic possession. While I was underwhelmed by the Hollywood ending, the build up was intense. And a film with its three anchors in Farmiga, Wilson, and Wan is well worth a move forward with another case file from Ed and Lorraine.
The Conjuring 2 is blessing theaters on Friday, June 10 and I'll be there opening night.
