the Conjuring.

I've skipped over this one and its sequel for a long time because I'm really not impressed by all the horror movies released nowadays and I'm not really into the ones that are just there to deliver jump scares. So it just got lost in all the Sinisters, Insidiouses, Paranormal Activities and whatnot.

But especially with the addition of Annabelle: Creation and more spinoffs focusing on particular entities in the movie on the way I was getting kind of curious about this one as it seemed to be a better franchise than most with a good bit of lore giving it a rich back story.

Turned out to be correct; its a slightly more serious version of Poltergeist filled to the brim with every haunted house cliche you can think of. Its not really scary, gory or original but its really well-crafted with nice effects, good use of the camera, excellent use of audio/silence and music and some very good acting.

Love it!

Yeah, The Conjuring was very good.

Second one is cool too.

The spin-offs i.e. Annabelle wasn't great though...

The last movie I've watched is the maze runner 3 and it was really amazing.

Saw Daddy's Home 2 (2017) - got everything you can except from movie like this - couple good laughs, rare option to see Mel Gibson in movie and some just crazy things you can except from Will Ferrell. End of movie featured real hero Sully, pilot who landed plane in Hudson River.

Completely agree with IMDB: 6/10
