The Conjuring  
I had a rough end of the day at work and decided to distract myself by watching The Conjuring, which I've been meaning to do since it came out.

The good: The movie successfully took my mind off of work.

The bad: I may need to turn every light on when I go to bed tonight.

I have mixed feelings about the real Ed and Lorraine Warren, but that was the most continuously scary movie I've seen in a long time. I watched The Witch recently and that was disturbing, but this one was terrifying. Haunted places are my favorite horror subgenre and this movie delivered. If IMDB trivia can be believed, it got an R rating simply because it was indeed that scary and I can believe it.

More thoughts with spoilers behind the cut.


I legitimately yelled out loud "Don't go in the basement/room/out of the house" multiple times. That was one scary fucking basement. I am currently glad that my apartment only has a basement featuring other apartments and the laundry machines and is the least-creepy thing you can imagine.

THE ANNABELLE DOLL OH MY GOD BURN IT WITH FIRE.

I seriously did not think that family was all going to make it out alive. I thought for sure somebody was going to die.


Now for the funny part. One of the actors' names rang a bell during the credits. Ed Warren is played by Patrick Wilson, who also played...Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera. I kid you not. This makes two movies in which Patrick Wilson has played somebody investigating a creepy, supernatural or pseudo-supernatural presence in a building that is attempting to harm people and occasionally killing them, and the presence is also targeting his girlfriend/wife. I can't stop laughing.

On an unrelated topic, can anybody tell me which code to use so that I can put the message about this entry being posted on both DW and LJ and people can comment on either? I've been reviewing DW's instructions but I'm still confused. Thanks!
