Review rate : A-

“..it is the threat that hangs over everything, though, that creeping dread pushing in at the edge of the frame all the time, that makes "The Conjuring" so special and so difficult..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]
“..a sensationally entertaining old-school freakout and one of the smartest, most viscerally effective thrillers in recent memory..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

“..a masterclass in absolute terror that's destined to become a classic within the genre..”
by Uncle Creepy [Deadcentral]

“..a film that doesn't really deliver anything new, per se, but should be recognized as one of the best haunters since Poltergeist..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]
