The Conjuring

2013-09-20 12:28

The Conjuring is easily the best horror of the year, if not the decade.


In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five 20-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival. Starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci. In cinemas 16 August.
