Rotten: As "The Conjuring" progresses, the scares don't register beyond standard issue horror gotchas. They're as telegraphed as the musical cues alerting you something spooky is about to happen.
- Adam Graham, Detroit News, Thursday, July 18, 2013
Rotten: It's generic and lazy as storytelling, but this time there's almost enough playful camerawork to distract from the feeble conception.
- Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, Thursday, July 18, 2013
Fresh: Wan ... builds the many bumps in the night into a small Hitchcockian symphony of terror by way of long, eerie tracking shots, dramatic silences, and sudden scares that are frighteningly immersive.

For a carnival of horror clichs, it has an involving and quite subtle build up and a tense atmosphere. Not bad for a modern day film of its kind.

Since Insidious a horror film hasn't scared the crap out of me like this, and Wan follows that great movie with this genuinely terrifying story that knows how to maintain a steady level of pure terror through an extremely creepy atmosphere and cinematography.
