Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) are real life paranormal investigators. The Perron Family, Roger (Ron Livingston) and Carolyn (Lili Taylor) and their five daughters have just moved into a new home that holds a lot of secrets. Roger is a long distance truck driver, and when he’s gone, the girls are home alone and they really suspect something weird is happening in the house. After contacting Ed and Lorraine Warren, they find out the house was previously owned by a witch who killed herself on the property, but many spirits may haunt the house creating very big problems for both the Perron Family and the Warrens.

This is a very creepy movie loosely based, once again, on a true story. The Warrens are very well known paranormal investigators, and this story is set in 1971, so the tools of the trade they use are flash cameras and reel to reel tape recorders, not to mention dial phones! This really adds to the creepiness. For more about the truthfulness of the story, skip to the end of this review, but as far as the film is concerned, it’s got a lot going for it. First of all, it’s really, really scary. I have not seen a film this well done for building the suspense and terror step by step. There are a great many real scares in this film. It’s really creepy. The scenery is very good, and the settings are fabulous. The house is perfect for a haunted house, and the grounds are creepy enough without the story. The soundtrack is excellent, especially due to the fact that you don’t even notice it because you’re so into the story. It’s a predictable story, as all these events pretty much end the same. But that’s not a big deal, as getting there is really horrific. Lili Taylor is perfect for playing the scary roles, and she does a good job once again in this film. She’s been stuck with many creepy monster type roles, but she’s so good at it, and she aces this one once again. The rest of the cast is also very good, especially the five daughters, plus the sixth one that belongs to the Warren’s. This is definitely the best horror film I’ve seen in a long time, and very good for horror film lovers. This is a good ghost story, and really pulls you into the terror. I believe word of mouth with do a lot for this film, and if you’re a horror fan, you’ll probably not want to miss this one. Watched this on Thursday night, and the theater was packed. Good scary movie, believe me!
