A waste of time…

Ugh! Why did I pay $19.99 to rent this movie? What a waste of time! I keep hoping that "The Conjuring" movies will get better, but they don't. It's always more of the same: a formulaic story structure, a ridiculous villain, a forced love story and bad computer-generated imagery. (CGI is getting worse, IMHO). I should’ve given up on these movies being any good by this point, especially after watching the "Annabelle: Creation" and "Annabelle: Comes Home" films. (I thought those movies were silly in the extreme, but to each his own.)

But back to discussing this recent Conjuring film: I feel like horror movies these days are just horror parody films. The whole 'the devil made me do it' just fell flat for me. Plus, this film breaks a major writing rule: ‘Your main characters must be likable, and they MUST make decisions that you can respect.’ I can't tell you how many times Lorraine and Ed Warren's characters are separated from each other and ended up taking risks that are dangerous. (Hmm, I doubt that the real people that the movie is based on behaved this recklessly.) I mean, it's pretty embarrassing how these two characters are portrayed, such as bumbling around in dark crawl spaces, staring frozen at things and beclowning themselves to convince us of their fear. And don't even get me started on Ed Warren's character wielding a sledgehammer. Was this a throwback to the Looney Tunes cartoons? Was the character who played Father Kastner supposed to be a parody of Elmer J. Fudd? (At this point, I'm being facetious.) Oh and if any of you think that I'm being too hard on this movie, let me remind you that I paid $19.99 for early access to this cinematic dreck.

***Take my advice: wait until this movie is free to watch or until it’s only $2.99 to rent. Don’t make the same mistake as me. If I could go back in time I would stop myself from renting this for a whopping $19.99.***

Better than expected

Better than expected. Reviews mislead me and not at all like I expected. I thought it was gonna be lame as most third or second installments, but it did well. Ending seemed rushed, so maybe beginning and middle drag out too much?

Great true story
Verified purchase
The opening scene was just ok but after the first 15 or so minutes it really got good. Laurens Psychic abilities are full on, The scene with Loraine Warren confronts the Satanic Witch on the Astral Plain is pure Hollywood magic, No one has had this kind of vision in a Horror film ever. In fact all modern horror relies on jump scares and copious amounts of blood and gore. This movie relied on a heavy true story and some incredible visuals. John Noble plays a catholic priest that spent time in a Satanic cult observing their sacrificial rites and Eugenie Bondurant (The Satanic Witch) who played Nobel's was tuff and brutal, You never new were she was going to astral travel to. She literally stepped out of a hyperspace and into the physical realm where Ed and Lorraine were, several times. Even the idols they used in the Movie were the real thing. One of the best parts is when Ed and Lorraine confront her in the catacombs below her fathers house where Bondurant's alter is and it just has a hectic pace from then on. Eugenie Bondurant really gave the movie teeth. Makes you wonder what she does in her spare time. A little too damn real if you ask me.

The franchise is dead. Not worth renting.
Verified purchase
The 1st Conjuring Film was pretty much a perfect film on all fronts. The second film was poorly executed, but maybe the third film could recover the franchise.

NOPE. We could not watch more than 15 minutes before we looked at each other and said "Life's too short" and turned it off.

The story and writing are terrible. The cinematography and lighting are typical for a ultra low budget horror. It's just bad on all levels. We knew just by the opening scenes that this was a thorough disaster. Without giving anything away, if you watch the first 10 mins you'll know what I mean.

Again, the first film in the series was one of the greatest films of all time. Second one was bad. This one is far beyond bad.
