No movie is without its faults, and The Conjuring movies certainly have their fair share—every scene is either an exposition dump or a jump scare scene that takes an eternity to pay off. However, if you like yourself a classy horror film, this is a relatively classy franchise. I still haven't—nor will I ever at this point—seen that Annabelle sequel that was a prequel that people keep telling me is good. I don't have time for it. Who the hell does?

Anyway, the next Conjuring spin-off, The Nun, opens this coming Friday making it the perfect time for a takedown from the good folks over at Screen Junkies. This week, they've brought us an Honest Trailer based around the titular films in the franchise. It's another solid entry in the series, nothing laugh out loud funny, but lots of decent zingers.

I find it weird that Patrick Wilson is James Wan's good luck charm actor. He's one of those guys I constantly forget about, and then he'll show up in something and I'm like, Patrick Wilson... where do I know him from? Every director needs their good luck charm actor, whether it's J.J. Abrams and Greg Grunberg or Ron Howard and his brother Clint. I guess I just don't get how Patrick Wilson is that guy for James Wan. Should they want to reboot The Odd Couple again, cast those two.
