A demonic entity lays claim to family living in a secluded farmhouse, prompting them to seek the aid of two renowned paranormal researchers in this tale of possession inspired by actual events. The story gets underway as paranormal researchers Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) evaluate a mysterious doll discovered by a trio of young roommates in 1968. Believing their house to be haunted by the wayward spirit of a deceased young girl, they give the girl permission to inhabit the doll, and soon their lives become a waking nightmare. Informed by Ed and Lorraine that they have fallen victim to an inhuman spirit (aka a demon) seeking a human host, the roommates entrust the doll to the Warrens, who place it in their personal museum for safekeeping. Flash forward three years to Harrisville, RI, where the Perron family have just moved into their country dream home -- an 18th century farmhouse that offers plenty of space for parents Carolyn (Lili Taylor) and Roger (Ron Livingston), as well as their five daughters Andrea (Shanley Caswell), Nancy (Hayley McFarland), Christine (Joey King), Cindy (Mackenzie Foy), and April (Kyla Deaver). It seems like the ideal place to raise a family until a series of unsettling events leave the Perron family convinced they are not alone. Terrified, Carolyn reaches out to the Warrens for help, and learns that a demonic entity has attached itself to her family, and has no intentions of letting them go. Meanwhile, the deeper the Warrens delve into the farmhouse's history, the clearer it becomes that this spirit has a murderous agenda, and that no one will be safe until it is driven back into darkness.

Movie Critics
Chicago Sun-Times
"THE CONJURING is never above mining familiar territory for jump-in-your-seat-and-then-release-a-laugh moments -- but it’s often framed in a uniquely twisted way by director James Wan."
Richard Roeper (18 Jul 2013, )
Entertainment Weekly
"Wan masterfully tightens the vise on the audience's nerves, using mood and sound effects for shocks that never feel cheap..." -- Grade: A-
Chris Nashawaty (1 Aug 2013, )
Hollywood Reporter
"With its minimal use of digital effects, its strong, sympathetic performances and ace design work, the pic harks back in themes and methods to THE EXORCIST and THE AMITYVILLE HORROR..."
Sheri Linden (22 Jun 2013, )
Los Angeles Times
"Old-school and supremely confident in its attack, THE CONJURING is this year's miracle -- an AMITYVILLE HORROR for a new century..."
Michael Phillips (18 Jul 2013, )
New York Times
"The dread gathers and surges while the blood scarcely trickles in THE CONJURING, a fantastically effective haunted-house movie."
Manohla Dargis (19 Aug 2013, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "[K]udos to THE CONJURING for putting fresh fire into the overworked haunted-house genre."
Peter Travers (19 Jul 2013, )
Total Film
"THE CONJURING taps a true-life tale, but it’s the patient pacing that makes it."
Kevin Harley (22 Jul 2013, )
USA Today
3 stars out of 4 -- "THE CONJURING is a well-crafted throwback to B-movie horror thrillers, with A-list actors."
Claudia Puig (18 Jul 2013, )
"[A] sensationally entertaining old-school freakout and one of the smartest, most viscerally effective thrillers in recent memory."
Justin Chang (22 Jun 2013, )
Wall Street Journal
"This saga of demonic possession deploys the full audio firepower of modern multiplexes....The film is entirely irony-free, and enjoyable..."
(19 Jul 2013, )
Washington Post
3 stars out of 4 -- "[This] haunted-house thriller delivers consistent chills and thrills."
