10:20pm - Wednesday, Oct 27, 2021
The Rio Theatre's seasonal selection of creepy, Halloween-y picks this October includes Aussie director James Wan's (SAW, INSIDIOUS, MALIGNANT) 2013 haunted house hit THE CONJURING.
Set in 1970, the film follows paranormal investigators and demonologists Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) and Ed (Patrick Wilson) Warren, who are summoned to the home of Carolyn (Lili Taylor) and Roger (Ron Livingston) Perron. The Perrons and their five daughters have recently moved into a secluded farmhouse, where a supernatural presence has made itself known. Though the manifestations are relatively benign at first, events soon escalate in horrifying fashion, especially after the Warrens discover the house's macabre history.
"Well-crafted and gleefully creepy, 'The Conjuring' ratchets up dread through a series of effective old-school scares." (Rotten Tomatoes)
