    "This is one of the best paranormal movies out there. It has an in-depth storyline which traces back to cultic rituals appeasing creatures of the unknown. It was also made using a sort of documentary style which makes it more realistic than the common movie."

    "This the creepiest albeit best movie ever! It even has an urban legend to it that a lot of people and actors died in the shooting of this movie, even the book from which it was adapted from is something to fear."

    "The conjuring is a great story inspired by one the most well renowned paranormal experts in the world. It has a really scary theme but it also sort of explains why certain things happen to curses and all that and they even have a museum for it."

    "This is one the most sought out for movie when it comes to exorcism as it was derived from true events of a woman possessed by the spirits of the damned. Though if it were true or not it showed us an opening wherein the world of the dead interacts with the world of the living."
