In 1976, investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, are sitting in their home. Lorraine’s visions of a nun, followed by a man dying leaves her horrified. The nun who appears in her visions has really managed to spook. The couple travels to London, England, where single mother Peggy Hodgson knows that something horrifying is in her home. She and four children live in a haunted house. Peggy’s youngest daughter begins showing signs of demonic possession. Her sleepwalking and conversing will make you wait if the spirit would appear or not. Eventually, the mother witnesses the paranormal events occurring right in front of her eyes.
The painting of the nun itself got me goosebumps all over. Can you then imagine how it would be to see the painting approaching closer to the person in the picture and among the audience?
Here we can see how Ed and Lorraine are good at their work when they are asked to help the family. However, there’s something more threatening here. This scene gives you mixed feeling of what is going around. But as we know, the duo is skillful enough to cast away the demonic spirit, after embarking on a trail of adventure and facing all odds, that leaves us stunned. They finally overcome the threat posed by the dark-evil forces to humanity, to our joy.
This suspense film’s camera work needs kudos, especially for bringing to light the stunning movements and the sequences with their perfect timings, that will surely blow your mind. Though this scary movie is actually not at all intimidating in some scenes, the sound effect has done an amazing work, which will surely hook you to your seats. Kudos for the filmmakers for bringing out this wonderful film. We will rate this film, two and a half hash tags out of 5.
