The production initially scouted a number of farmhouses to shoot in the Cape Fear region of South Eastern North Carolina, until they found the house featured in the movie. It is located on the Black River in Pender County. They only filmed the exterior of the home. All interior shots were filmed on set at Screen Gem Studios in Wilmington, North Carolina. See more »
When Judy is walking down the stairs, it is a very low shot and a modern disc-shaped smoke detector can be seen above her on the roof. In the early 1970s, smoke detectors would have been beehive-shaped. See more »
It scares us just thinking about it. When you hear it, you're gonna think we're insane.
Try us. Please, from the start.

"The Conjuring" is one of the most thrilling horror film to have come out in recent times. It is up there with "Sinister" as one of the scariest films I have watched. Since it's based off of "true events", it makes it even more interesting. I can't quite give it a full 10 star rating because it does have quite a few jump scares, but at least a good portion of those jump scares add to the atmosphere of this movie. If you are a first time watcher of this movie, it will certainly disturb you for a while. It doesn't stick with me like "Sinister" does long after, but The Conjuring is a fun watch and I always love coming back for a rewatch every now and then.
