Warner Bros has been a huge supporter of James Wan's latest horror film, "The Conjuring," especially after early test screenings resulted in some of the most positive reviews the studio has ever seen. The reason for the positive reviews: people said that "The Conjuring" is an incredibly frightening experience.
The studio immediately moved the film from its February release to the summer (July 13th). And now comes word that MPAA gave "The Conjuring" an R-rating, for no other reason than it's scary. "When we sent it [to MPAA], they gave us the R-rating," said producer Walter Hamada. "When we asked them why, they basically said, 'It's just so scary. [There are] no specific scenes or tone you could take out to get it PG-13.'"
Wan is incredibly grateful that Warner Bros is keeping the summer release date, despite the 'R' rating. "It's a testament to the studio for not f*cking with the film," he said. "It works and they are sticking to it and I'm very thankful for that."
To get an idea of what to expect from "The Conjuring," check out the trailer below.
With modern horror we have been exposed to crap like paranormal activity and many found footage garbage. The latest horrors that I have ranked up there with the best are insidious, sinister and I absolutly love the walking dead series and put that up there with the George a Romero classics.
To hear a film is "that scary" is music to my ears, crappy teen horror and found footage horror has been flooding the genre far too long!!

This is all marketing bullsh*t. The promos this summer are going to say crap like "The scariest movie ever made" blah blah blah. It's an angle to get people in the theatres. The producer just blowing smoke up your ass.

Enforcer- Who are you and what have you find with Enforcer?

Anything with lili taylor is f*cking scary, anyways, I have to partially agree with Enforcer as Sinister blew my drug infused mind away and possibly ruined my last brain cell which I've been preserving for sentimental value.
Sounds like a marketing ploy. I don't trust the MPAA when it comes to something being too scary. The last movie they claimed was too scary was Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. Del Toro was all, "We wanted a PG-13 but they say it's just too scary." I'll believe it when I see it. Trailer wasn't bad.

I am here.
So yeah, scary. So what? No, it's not marketing from the MPAA, but such and such will be marketed by the studio eventually. I agree with that assessment. The Conjuring IS too scary, probably, for an PG-13 rating. Not like Wan's mother and father sit on the f*cking ratings board, right?
Anywho, f*ck this stupid news and the conspiracies therein. Here's some news Dear Leader failed to deliver:
HBO: 'Game of Thrones' piracy is a compliment
“I probably shouldn’t be saying this, but it is a compliment of sorts,” [HBO programming president] Lombardo said. “The demand is there. And it certainly didn’t negatively impact the DVD sales. [Piracy is] something that comes along with having a wildly successful show on a subscription network.”
