1. The Conjuring
The film has explicit and visceral violence about an hour after the start, the episode with the exorcism being really scary, even in the absence of computer -generated fireworks. Director James Wan (Saw, Insidious) showed himself as a believer in old-school techniques throughout the film. In other news, Wan leaves the viewers with too much time between scares and accumulation of tension is affected.
Regarding the exorcism scene, a decrease in tension is given by the sheet covering the possessed. The trick worked very well. Spectators will build the creature’s face in their mind. The human face transfigured by tenure will be revealed later when the audience will already have experienced a sort of internalization of the demon.
2. World War Z

The realistic approach makes it plausible and that much more terrifying, World War Z seeming like a war movie with epidemiological substrate (World War III?), in which governments fall, areas are devastated and people decimated.
