|Tengok poster je nak pengsan dah! :P|
The Conjuring review – Ok, first of all I got a confession…I HATE SCARRY MOVIES. I have a photographic memory (not for all occasion unfortunately) so if I were to watch any gambar hantu, the blardy images will stick in my mind till I choose to ignore it [case of point – Evil Dead (I watched it when I was 7 – 8 but can still remember some of the scenes till now!)]. Now that the cat is out of the bag, you would wonder why I gatal-gatal nak tengok this flick is which said to be one of the scariest movie kan? Well, your answer is as good as mine. How long nak takut-takut tak tengok? Must face one’s fear right or at least try to. Ok ok, enough about my history let’s get into business shall we?
|Annabelle : "Yes....are u looking for me?"|
Well, one reason that intrigued me to build nerve to sit thru The Conjuring was Vera Farmiga, I fell in love with her since ‘Up In The Air’ and ‘The Orphan’. Damn good actress she is and she proved once again why I love her in this movie playing Paranormal investigator, Lorraine Warren. I lit up whenever she appeared on screen. You can almost ‘feel’ what she is feeling thru her facial expressions. Did I mention I love her?
|Mirror mirror on the music box...tell me what am looking at will ya?|
As for Patrick Wilson…it kinda tickled me to see his side burns but he was decent as Edward lending support to his wife. His ‘Ghostbuster’ and ‘ghost hunter’ cum exorcist worked well. Thank God his side burn didn’t get burned in the process – pun intended. (hehehe) Special mention to Lily Taylor as Carolyn Perron (I still remember her from the movie ‘The Haunting’, she is the go-to-person to play as possessed person role. Kena whack kao-kao, tarik sana sini, ‘sit upside down’ and muka kena make up till almost kenot recognize. If she acts in another ‘spirit’ movie I might risk a heart attack just to watch her. The five (5) girls of the Perron daughters were played brilliantly, each of them with their own ‘freaky’ moments. The cast was wisely picked to suit their protagonist.
|Hang on honey, I got this....I think!|
As for the story, you get goose bumps when you see that it is based on true story. Say what? Tengok movie je dah gigil, cuba bayangkan if have to live thru something horrifying like this. Mampus wey! It was set in the 70’s and all this family of seven (7) wanted was a place to stay but they learned a lesson of a lifetime instead. Itulah, next time before investing on something make research dulu. Jangan main beli je. Mana tau tertiba ada a sick giler babi punya spirit haunt the place? Tak ke susah? If you have pet, take heed of their reaction. Dogs, cats, birds and other animals suitable to be kept as pet do sense this kinda things. Nasib rumah aku ada banyak kucing, kalau ada apa-apa (touchwood) funky reaction from them, terus aku cabuts! No matter what you beliefs are, just remember there ‘things out there’ that you can’t explain. Thank God the Perron family seek help before it was too late.
|Go watch lar wey!|
If you are up for a good scarring, not the cheesy cheap type, you should conjure enough courage to check this motion picture out directed by own very own Malaysian born Director. This dude, James Wan did a pretty decent job. Another confession time, since I’m a scary cat, I watched the movie with my glasses off most of the time or else memang dah mati terkejut but that didn’t help because the background sound also played an awesome part. Every single ‘krukkkkk’….’krakkkkk’….dah cukup to give chill down your spine. Excellent camera work capturing the angle of the haunted house. If I was not such a chickeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen, I would watch this flick again with my glasses on.
|Thank you Churp Churp!!!|
