CONJURER was a pleasant surprise! The cover art was creepy enough, but I've been enticed to buy a DVD with cool cover art and then the movie sucked the big one. But CONJURER really worked. It had some eerie images and a sinister tone that remained consistent throughout the film.

The plot--Shawn's wife experiences a stillbirth and is traumatized by the event. Although he can't afford the move, they pack up and head for the country. His rich brother-in-law has bought a house for them to live in, complete with a spooky old cabin in the backyard.
The previous owner introduces them to the house and he seems eager, a little too eager for the sell.

CONJURER has some chilling moments and not one, but two killer twists at the end. All in all, CONJURER was a very haunting little gem! One that will keep you guessing till the final frame.

Good twist-dominated horror
B. E Jackson | Pennsylvania | 09/24/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Not quite just another horror movie. The Conjurer is about a man who keeps seeing images of a witch appar in his back yard shed. The people all around him including neighbors, the previous owners, and even his wifes brother all tell him "those are just myths and stories people say to spark interest". But the man continues going through strange occurrences and unexplainable events despite all this.

The story in the beginning is about the mans wife who lost her baby, and what happens when they move to a farm house in the country to start over.

What makes this movie 5 stars is quite simple- there's two major twists at the very end that will probably catch you by surprise, and the eerie build-up in the first half of the movie is quite fantastic when the man continues to see and hear things in the woods and in his shed that he can't explain. The plot builds slowly, but not TOO slow that you become bored with it. It requires a fair amount of your attention span, but it's totally worth it because of the ending. Without spoiling too much, what you probably think is going to happen to the wife is actually going to be something much different.

The writers of the film were also aware what's been done a million times in other horror stories and disregarded them, such as the scenes involving a little boy who kept spying on his new neighbors. There's an explaination for his appearance and it's good writing because he doesn't play the typical "scary kid hiding in woods planning to kill people" that it appears he's going to play when you first see him.

The acting is great all around, especially the wife who's very underrated in her performance.

I wish there were more horror movies like this out there. Ones that deliver on suspense, storytelling, and fantastic endings.
