I'll be honest. I watched this film in daylight. I hadn't meant to. I'd had it all set up and ready to go the night before. But then I jumped three times just watching the trailer.
Perhaps I'm just a coward. In my defense, I had someone tell me that it was the scariest film that she'd ever watched. A host of reviews told me that otherwise hardened, desensitized horror movie fans were professing fear over this one.
I watched it in daylight. It took the edge off the creepy atmosphere, but still provided enough to get my heart racing at times. It's not the most frightening film ever produced, but it's good enough.
There's another by the same people about Annabelle, which I haven't seen yet. I know about - and have written about - Annabelle the doll in real life though.
Wow! That must have been quite an experience. I'd love to visit it sometime.
I have actually been to the Warren's museum in Connecticut. They are definitely into the darker side of ghostly activity. Creepy doesn't begin to describe it.
You'd be absolutely amazed. I always add the Bechdel Test at the end of my reviews, and most of them fail. The bar is so low, yet apparently still too high.
Is it really that rare that you have two named female characters talking about something other than a man?
It's so rare that one does, isn't it?
I'm not saying that The Conjuring isn't frightening - it is - but the trailer is much more so. I didn't jump nearly so much when it was all spread out, as I did in those condensed moments. You may be fine.
The trailer had my nerves on edge so I don't know if I could sit through this movie. I may buy the book instead! I need an interesting one to read. I like that you always include that Bechdel test and it's nice to know this one passes.
