I resisted and protested when BFF brought up the idea of watching The Conjuring.
Firstly I'm not a fan of horror films while gory films make me distinctively nauseated. I actually vomited over an ex boyfriend's lap during a gory movie once! So anyway I tend to close my eyes or narrow to mere slits when watching horror shows! Isn't that a waste of money?? Most close friends will always look at me with an incredulous look and go, "What the fuck you scared of horror movies for?? You can see real ghosts!!!"
To which I would retort, " Real ghosts don't come with special makeup and sound effects!!!"
Anyway I grudgingly agreed to watch as BFF's brother's GF would be returning back to China the next day.
To my surprise, the movie was good. Very good in fact. I like the fact that they did not employ the usual army of special effects, and instead relied on more "traditional" old school type effect. In honesty though, if you are a horror film or movie buff in general, the "scary" parts are very predictable. I was able to narrow my eyes most of the time to avoid leaping out of my seat or shrieking like a 3 year old girl.
But what I truly like and as well as the most chilling parts is the investigator Lorraine Warren. She is a clairvoyant and medium and in an essence quite the instrumental force in the entire event. So what liked and chilled me? The fact that what she sees and feels are extremely how I would see and feel such things. Spirits(or ghosts) don't quite communicate like how you would talk to another person. They communicate in bursts of images, impressions and raw emotions which can easily overwhelm you.
I'm not sure if what happened in the movie is exactly how Lorraine sees, but if the shadowy figures she saw was an indication, I am clearly not in her league. I am not sure whether those are actual spirits or simply aura residue but I am glad my ability is not of that level! I can't see auras yet though I can feel their strength.
If I underwent training, my path might become almost like hers though I think I'm more medium than clairvoyant.
P.S. Patrick Wilson IS SO HAWT!!!!
