Ranking Every Film in The Conjuring Universe

Ranking Every Film in The Conjuring Universe

A compelling horror movie is hard to come by in this day and age. Cheap jump scares and a lackluster script with thin characters is what you mostly see in theaters these days when it comes to horror. The Conjuring Universe has provided us with the opposite of that in some cases, and in others they fall right into that category. The universe, as a whole, is a bit of a roller coaster, but there’s lot to like overall. Let’s take a look at the rankings.

Annabelle: Creation is a Satisfyingly Scary Entry in the Conjuring Universe (Review)

Annabelle: Creation is a Satisfyingly Scary Entry in the Conjuring Universe (Review)

In recent years, the latest horror franchise to conjure up globs of money from audiences has been the Conjuring Universe (the name Warner Brothers gave this horror franchise). While the first Conjuring movie, The Conjuring, reshaped the modern-day horror genre, its spin-off, Annabelle, was very underwhelming; in fact, I was so bored that I never finished watching it. But last year, the Conjuring Universe returned to its roots with The Conjuring 2, which was a formidable sequel to the original Conjuring.
