From what I’ve been personally hearing, word on the rated R scarefest of “The Conjuring” is divided. I’ve been told in my face that it’s tame and a snoozer and then been told that it’s really scary. Sheesh, which one is it? Like always, I have to see it for myself because I can’t trust other critics friends of mine. I’m seeing it soon, but from the two trailers I have already seen, my current fave horror director James Wan (Saw, Insidious 1 & 2) amps the suspense to a 10. But I’ve been fooled before by misleading trailers. Watch this third trailer and tell me what you think – bomb or hit?
Official synopsis: Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville.
