I've been attempting to play catch-up with recent releases, and finally was able to view James Wan's The Conjuring from WB. Need to get to Insidious, also.
The Conjuring came as suggested highly by my son, and after darkening the room, and finding a comfortable listening level, just a big higher than my norm, I settled in for whatever was about to unfold.
The film meanders a bit before it begins to sucker punch. Mr. Wan uses many of the old school tricks here, along with a novel approach, and the final result is a reasonably frightening film.
Audio was superb, and my speakers got a nice workout, especially in the extremely dense low-frequency shots. For those in shared dwellings, this film can be a lease-breaker, as the DTS-HD MA takes frequencies low and very loud.
Unlike Insidious, which was shot with a Red One, The Conjuring moved to an Arri Alexa, interestingly outfitted with Leica Summilux optics. The imagery, which I viewed at about ten feet across, was superbly rendered.
Bottom line, an interesting, occasionally frightening experience, with great entertainment value, and enough low-frequency audio information to de-lint one's speakers.
Strangely, a small creature, I believe it may be an odd doll, was perched near my computer earlier, and then disappeared. I took a quick shot, before it moved off. Don't know if it might return. Odd.
