The Conjuring 2013. Is it REALLY?

Okay so before anything else, I just want to say that anything I'm about to say is mildly affected by the fact that I watched this movie half-guilty because I skipped my study schedule for the nth time already so that probably affected my capability to absorb the essence of the story. Or is there any?

Okay so the story (according to me) is like this. There's a family who moved into a house in Rhode Island and then they were happy and stuff, right? On the very first day though, they noticed that their dog refused to enter the house. You know how they say that dogs can feel spirits, right? Yeah. She was barking and acting weird and stuff. And then the girls played hide and seek and then since they don't know the whereabouts of that house yet, they somehow managed to knock something and then the father found out that it's a way down to a cellar. He went down and since it was kind of night time already, he wasn't able to see everything and said he'll be back tomorrow or something. And then the other day, the wife woke up and she got a bruise and then she also found out that the dog already died and then found her husband at the cellar. She also found out that for some reason, the clocks stop at 3:07. Which is weird. Okay so fast forward. Weird things have been happening and then the mother kind of freaked out already and asked for assistance from these ghost hunters or whatever you would like to call it. They hesitated at first but when the mother asked the girl hunter about her wanting to protect her daughters, the girl hunter agreed and then they followed to the haunted house the next day.

Can I just say that there was like a light bulb moment when I read the word INFESTATION? It's just that it was discussed during my Parasitology review class and I was like, okay minus one point of guilt! LOL. Okay so they visited the place, right? The girl felt stuff and even saw "the friend" that one of the daughters reckoned to have. And this lady ghost hunter (I kid you not) was chill as eff. And then at some point, the lady of the house told the lady hunter that she was diagnosed to have an iron deficiency that's why she have bruises. Also the name of the witch who used to own their house is named something that sounds but not quite "Bethesda" which has something to do with grading cervical cytology. And I was like, girl! Is this movie supposed to review me or something?

This is probably the scariest part. Like, I was covering my other eye just to prepare for the situation or whatever's coming next which is kind of a disappointment because nothing happened next but this scene itself is kind of scary already so yeah. Very good. Okay can I just say that there are quite a lot of scary parts but for me they are not so consistent so it feels like so-so to me. My sister was scared all through out though so maybe it still depends on the person watching. And also, I kind of read a lot of good reviews about it so maybe it's just me. Can I just say that maybe the reason why I didn't like it is because I kind of feel that the first part of the movie lacked connection to the rest. It's the creepy doll Anabelle and then I don't get the rest of the story because I'm simply wondering what's the connection of that doll to the whole movie aside from scaring the daughter of the ghost busters and just being creepy as it is. I won't tell you the rest of the story guys. But my point is I don't really think the movie is worth the hype (sort of).  I mean it's not crappy but it's not really that scary. Well I'm obviously describing the movie alone because I believe this is like a true to life story and just the idea of that happening in real life kind of freaks the heck out of me already so yeah.

Can I just say that without the cracks and the scary eyes, this looks like the doll my dad bought in France for my sister. This movie doll also kind of looks like the scary and uglier version of the doll I showed you guys here. It scares me. Kind of. But then being the true to life story that this is, this is actually not really how the REAL Anabelle looks like. So fair enough. I have issues with some of the scenes because you know, if that would happen to me, I wouldn't want to know what's happening or something. For example, if I hear a noise, I wouldn't get out of bed and look for the noise or look for my mom or anyone else. Nah-uh! I mean, why would I? I would just shut my eyes, cover myself up with my blanket, pray, and hope for the best! Yup.
