The Warrens
19 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved the movie. It was scary, not overdone in terms of special effects, and had what I believe to be a strong element of truth. The actors who portrayed the family were believable and likable, which added to the possibility that hauntings may actually occur, and that they might actually occur to nice, normal people. This possibility actually increases the "creep-factor," because if it can happen to that nice, all-American devoutly Catholic family, it can happen to anyone! On the negative side, though, I don't put as much stock in the self-proclaimed demonologist duo, the Warrens, as some (what with all that unfortunate Amityville-being-a-hoax business). Their involvement in the case makes me think "hoax." But the film itself was worthwhile and good for a nice scare--regardless of whether or not it was a hoax.
