    The item description states blu ray, DVD, and digital versions of the movie are included. The DVD and digital copy WERE NOT included. The actual product shipped was not what was advertised or pictured. Very disappointing Best Buy.

    I absolutely love this movie! Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are great as Ed and Lorraine Warren helping a family being tormented by demonic beings. Worth watching over and over again!

    Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville

    I was thoroughly impressed by this movie. Supposedly this did insanely well when they ran this through test screenings and I can see why. The Conjuring had a lot to offer and didn't try to fill its running time by checking off every box on the horror movie cliche checklist. There are some tried and true formats here to be sure, but they're fairly well executed. The movie makes use of a lot of jump scares, so if you're irritated by those I would probably wait until this hits the rental sites. They're all done in good fun and are for the most part genuinely spooky, although I'll say that the jump scares were far more effective in the beginning of the movie. The acting was excellent in this and whomever thought to hire Lili Taylor should get a huge pat on the back. She's probably the strongest actor in this piece, second only to Vera Farmiga. The ladies genuinely rocked this movie fairly hard. The guys were good as well, but let's not pretend that they were there for anything other than to be played off the women. Now as far as story goes, this was decent. It's actually a fairly simplistic story line when you get down to it. There wasn't a lot of gussying up of the subject matter, although there was somewhat of a side story that surrounded the Warrens' daughter, the demon, and a doll from the beginning of the movie. I do have to admit that I'm not sure what I felt about that part. The doll's acquisition was shown at the beginning of the movie and largely had nothing to do with what the Perrons went through, except for showing up in one scene. The scare surrounding this scene was decent, but I kind of feel that it was one of the two weakest scenes in the film. The other weakest scene? I hate to say it, but it was the showdown in the end. I liked it well enough and it was entertaining, but it also felt slightly anticlimactic. Most viewers won't feel let down by the scene, although my friends and I all agreed that although this was an incredibly strong horror movie, the ending did sort of leave a little to be desired in comparison with the rest of the film. In the end though, the concerns are all fairly minor quibbles. This will still be an excellent film to go see in the theaters and something that I'd recommend for horror fans- especially those who love the older stuff. The director took great pains to make the opening and ending feel like something you'd have seen in the older days of horror, which I greatly appreciated. I'd say that this film is good enough to where it's something I'd outright own when it releases on DVD and assuming that the sequel will be as well done as this was, I'll be there on the opening weekend for whatever other movie they make.

    This is an excellent horror movie!!!

    A very entertaining and frighten movie, in my opinion this is one of the best horror movies in the last decade, James Wan is a master in how to create suspense, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are very good as the Warren couple. If you are a fan of horror, you cant miss this movie.

    Rated R for being scary! How rare is that?

    James Wan is a horror director that might have finally peaked with this one. His first SAW film was the best of the bunch and while Insidious had flaws, it also had some great scare moments and visuals. The Conjuring is a near perfect ghost/demonic possession movie. The scares are not cheap and they are 90% effective. A couple felt a little forced, but overall this is one the creepiest movies I have seen in theaters. Based on a "true story" that takes place in 1971, a family becomes the victim of some evil forces in their new house. Two paranormal investigators are brought in to gather evidence. They are based on the famous couple that also investigated The Amityville Horror years later. The acting is great all around from the kids and adults. I like how they didn't use any big name actors. Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson and Ron Livingston are relatively well known, but thankfully no huge star power here to completely take you out of the film. Very little gore, no foul language or nudity in a horror movie? Believe it or not, this thing earned the R rating for pure scares alone. Now don't get too overhyped or anything. I personally didn't jump in my seat or want to cover my eyes (though many scenes are quite chilling), but plenty of people around me did. The Conjuring is my favorite film so far this year. Let's leave it at that.

    A True Horror Story

    Of the best movies about ghosts and possessed houses. Its 80 'movie atmosphere leaves the viewer ripping their own clothes off their nerves. With its focused and simple plot, it makes you part of the family and makes you suffer as much as the characters.

    I am really picky with my horror movies. I prefer things with ghosts, demons, and otherworldly creatures. Slasher flicks are NOT my idea of "horror". This movie brings me back to getting the chills watching horror flicks as a kid (Like the original Poltergeist and, my favorite: The Entity -which I'm surprised no one has tried to remake.) and being afraid of the dark or what was hiding in my closet. The music sets the atmosphere and I love the story telling. It also flows well and doesn't lag with the creepiness. You can understand the characters and motivations. I LOVE that it included actual photos of the families involved to remind viewers that the haunting DID happen to a REAL family. I'll be watching this again and again!

    Can You Believe I Bought it Twice?!

    Yeah so this was in the five dollar bin, no brainer, right? Well turns out I already had THE SAME EXACT COPY AT HOME! So now I have two, but I'm going to give this one as a gift and finally watch the one I originally bought at Best Buy. This version has some cool BTS documentaries with the people actually involved in the real life story. If you don't know much about the now-deceased Warrens' you are missing out. Great film, great series.

    One suspenseful movie

    As the first in the conjuring films this one leads the future of the franchise if there's one. After seeing the conjuring 2 I wanted to see what was the first movie about. I found this too was a surprise at every corner as you could sense something was going to happen to scare the wits out of you. Sometimes it did and other times it didn't thanks to a very smart director who made this movie very suspenseful from beginning to end. Some scenes are scary but overall it was worth the price I paid which was on sale. Definitely recommend this one if you like movies dealing with ghosts and evil spirits.

    This movie received great reviews from both critics and moviegoers. James Wan made a masterpiece with the first Conjuring and may have even outdone himself with the sequel that is equally as scary. Great story, characters you can relate to, and lots of scares that will make you jump. I rarely buy blu-rays since I have netflix but this was a must-have for my home collection.

    i loved 80s creature features and slashers and transitioned into watching darker horror movies thay heavily focused on metaphors about social issues or personal matters. not that those movies are bad but as i got older i missed the fun tension filled horror movies of my youth and it felt like conjuring was a great revival of that kind of movie. highly recommend.

    Absolutely Terrifying

    Phenomenal horror movie. Eery sets, great utilization of the dark, phenomenal sound (must be experienced in surround sound or with quality head phones). There are very few "cheap scares" and barely any blood/gore. There is a constant state of trepidation throughout the film, and the true horror comes from your imagination conjuring up images of what's happening off of the screen (which is often a result of the terrific audio). If you're a horror buff, this is a must see. If you can appreciate a good film in general, this is still a great movie. Don't think it can't be a quality film just because it's a horror movie.

    Best Horror of 2013

    This movie has all scares that a good horror movie needs to be a classic ... this film is very well made by the guy that brought you Saw [James Wan] he has become a master of horror with this entry ... the movie itself is about a family that moves into a house and strange things start to happen ... but this is not the same old story ... It is a real good ride of a movie a lot of edge of your seat moments and also a lot of jumps ... the blu ray has a ton of extras that help tell the true story behind the movie ... well worth a look ... if your a fan of real horror you wont be dissatisfied ... Highly Recommended !!!

    I really liked this movie for several reasons, 1 being it's a true story. 2, it's not your typical horror/thriller movie. 3, it had a storyline a meaning behind it. It's not just some nonsens put together. 4, good prevails over evil, God wins and doesn't look weak as so many Hollywood movies like to portray Him to be. It's a really good movie and I believe it's worth seeing and owning. It also is a reminder that the evil one and his demons live on this earth and want to destroy God's people whether they believe in Him or not and He is always there to help us if we just call on Him.

    I don't usually go for screamers and scares, but this movie really brought you into the story. They didnt just concentrate on scare after scare, but anger, sadness, frustration and then all-out crazy fear. Great story line, well-acted, and just right on scenery and environment. I truly felt immersed in these characters lives, which is very hard to come by. Highly recommended!

    In the day and age of the gorror (as opposed to horror) films it is fantastic to see a movie that has the jumps and genuinely smartly moments. Not since I saw the exorcist when I was a small child was I this afraid of a movie. On top of it all I used to live very close to where that house was in Rhode Island. The scares were scary, the cast played the roles to perfection. All done without a single gory scene. I love this movie and will watch again and again.

    My wife and I are into scary stuff. We LOVE watching scary stuff, playing scary games, etc. I suppose this tolerance for scary stuff makes it hard to enjoy something unless it scares you, but the Conjuring truly surprised me. It did a great job at keeping us entertained, making us want to see what happened next, It is a great film if you are looking for some horror in your life. Enjoy with a date or by yourself. Also, it is only rated R for horror there are no wear words or anything like that. (in case you were wondering)
