With the imminent release of the sequel, I have decided to review one of my favorite horror movies of all time.

No one is allowed to play Hide and Clap around me. Ever.

The Conjuring is the “true” story of Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga), paranormal investigators who investigate strange occurrences surrounding a family in Rhode Island.

The best horror movie this side of 2000 is getting a sequel. And now we have a trailer for said sequel that is really good… until it blows it in the last 10 seconds.

For my first trailer review of 2016, I felt the need to talk about the trailer for The Conjuring 2 that came out today (see below).  The Conjuring is one of my favorite horror movies of all time and is ripe for a sequel (or sequels), in my opinion.  The are plenty of “true stories” involving famed paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren that can be told.  So, I watched this trailer excitedly hoping for a sneak peek of more of the greatness that is The Conjuring.

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

Since it’s Halloween week, I figured there was no better time to return to horror movies. I’ve already done Top 10 all time horror movies and top 10 slasher movies, so this time I’m turning my sights on modern horror movies (after 2000).  There are a lot more bad ones than good ones (always remember that The Devil Inside somehow exists) but there are more good ones than you would think.

– I’m really only including it for the really cool twist at the end.  Worth a watch if you haven’t seen it.
