31 Days of Halloween - Day 13 - Movie 2
When a family movies into a new house and finds itself assaulted by unexplained phenomena, they turn to Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga) for help. The paranormal investigators determine that their house is possessed by an inhuman spirit and set about doing what ever it takes to rid the house of it's unwelcome occupant and save the family.
This is probably James Wan's best realized movie. I admit to not being drawn to much of his work, but this was right up my alley. Based on a real case investigated by real life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, the film shows some restraint, relying more on a general sense of dread and foreboding, which makes the scares when they come more effective. You are invested in the people in this film, and their predicament.
