James Wan captured the attention of the viewers
I thought this movie was so very scary, but in my own opinion it was not. In the first half of the film, I think there was just a mild scary thing happening. But the second half of the film, it offered the fright. There was no gore, no sex and no cursing, but there were only scares. Even though this film was not that perfect, but James Wan captured the attention of the viewers that was why it got high rating and got popular around the world.
The storyline, acting, tone, direction, style and sound design were great. The sound effects, scares and camera angles were precisely combined which make this film interesting. The cinematography was perfectly stunning. It was good that it was set in 70’s to make it look possible for this biography horror film. It was really impossible to have a bio horror at present. If it was set in the present phase, it would not be as scary and frightening. The costuming, 70’s film style making and hair styling were a perfect throwback. Director James Wan was using his aesthetic mind to have this perfect set up. The good thing was that the apparitions were not revealed earlier to the viewers which allowing the imagination of the viewers to function what makes this movie absolutely frightening.
This movie wasn’t perfect but there was something in this film that makes you scared and jump in your seat. The building of tension was there and the movie set was chosen perfectly. Though there are little flaws such as repetitiveness and an image resolution that takes place too fast. But, overall I still liked this film because I enjoyed watching it. I don’t care if there were some flaws in this film because in every film there were surely have some flaws in it.
