Why should you watch The Conjuring?

Although this movie is nearly a decade older compared to some of the other movies on our list, The Conjuring is by far one of the greatest paranormal movies of all time. In our opinion, the movie is a truly terrifying horror film from beginning to end. It’s based on true life experiences, which is frankly spine-tingling, to say the least. Furthermore, the movie itself is extremely well crafted in every way!
