Maybe it is James Wan's calling to scare people because he is doing one hell of a job, just try to watch "Insidious" and "Conjuring" and you will know what we're talking about.
Insidious Vs Conjuring
The "Saw" director is gaining popularity in the horror genra as he delivers one scary scene after another in his latest movie Insidious 2 which is scheduled to hit the big screen on September 2013.
Director James Wan's "Conjuring" became an instant hit at New York Comic Con but the real question is, will it surpass the director's hit Insidious? The 2011 horror hit film that earned $97 million from its $1.5 million budget is arguably one of the best terrifying horror films and surpassing its scare factor is a big challenge.
So lets break it down and examine what makes this horror films tick?
Insidious, according to rottentomatoes.com review, is one very scary movie that gives a haunted house thrill ride. But the shaky final act of the film is a total turn off. The movie offers a new twist that features a family who moves into a new house and their young son who inexplicably falls into a deep coma. The film offers no elaborate set, without blood and devious death traps but it successfully convey the pure horror to its audience. Other issues are also brought up in the film; like astral projection and demonic possessions are just one of the few to look forward in this horror flick. With just one spooky old house, "Insidious" allows a certain realism that makes it more believable and scarier .
Conjuring is so far this year's scariest film and its about a pair of real-life ghost hunters, Ed and Lorraine Warren. The pair has to work overtime to prevent deadly events to happen as they face one of the most hateful dark spirit that they ever encountered. The movie successfully delivers each horrific scenes that convinces the audience that it happened in real life. Thanks to its authentic production design , "Conjuring" brings its audience back to 1970's horror. The score is apt and unsettling that it will you chills and the performance of the cast is topnotch.
In the end, both films receives high praises and mix reviews from its audience. Clearly the decision relies on each individual and how they perceive the film. Which brings me to my next question, will "Insidious: Chapter 2 scare the hell out of "Insidious?"
