The Conjuring is a 2013 American supernatural horror film directed by James Wan. The film, starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson as Ed and Lorraine Warren, is based on a true story, and follows paranormal investigators who come to the assistance of the Perron family (Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor), who are experiencing increasingly disturbing events in their farmhouse in Harrisville, Rhode Island in 1971.

The Conjuring is the latest in a long line of horror films "based on a true story". But some are truer than others, written by Chris Bell.

With its thrifty $20m budget, James Wan's paranormal thriller is this summer’s sleeper hit – a feat no doubt boosted by its bold poster claim: "based on the true case files of the Warrens." The Warrens in question being paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine, who founded the New England Society for Psychic Research in 1952.

The Saw franchise, and even the repugnant Human Centipede movies seem to pride themselves on just how many times you have to turn away in sheer disgust at what's unfolding on screen. It takes a film as old fashioned and as classically structured as "The Conjuring" to remind us that it's the little things that can deliver the biggest scares.

Director James Wan, who gave us the first Saw film, uses the camera niftily to create an eerie sense of foreboding, and employs music and sound effects shrewdly to heighten the shock. It's true we've seen creaking floorboards and dusty basements a thousand times before, but he knows just how to exploit them for maximum effect. I'm not easily scared, but more than once during 'The Conjuring' I found myself jumping in my seat.

No doubt, Wan’s decision to create a horror film devoid of overblown special effects harks back to Guillermo Del Toro who introduced 'The Orphanage and Mama' to audiences, proving that you don’t need brutality and bump in the dark clich├ęs to frighten the audience.  'The Conjuring' takes cues from both those films and even Wan’s previous movie Insidious and offers nonstop delicious mayhem.
