The Conjuring


Watch out for the music box...

Director James Wan’s follow-up to Insidious is so familiar it may as well be a sequel.

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga play Ed and Lorraine Warren, paranormal investigators who lock their supernatural spoils away in a room (like the collectors in the ’80s Friday The 13th TV series).

Wan’s been in there too, it seems, as his haunted-house flick uses every cliché to unnerve, from creepy dolls to creaky doors, scoring an admirable success rate.

Despite solid performances, the result is less a great horror movie than an effective remix of all the horror movies.
