    “THE CONJURING” (Movie Review)

    Real, palpable dread. In THE CONJURING, it is thick and ever present, and takes on many forms. It is a doll, it is a door. It is a hand clap, it is a spirit.

    The great Richard Matheson has passed.

    The man who invented the template for what would evolve – with some un-authorized assistance from George A. Romero – into the modern zombie and who re-invented what a vampire could be with his 1954 novella I AM LEGEND, defined the parameters of dark fantasy fiction, working in all mediums and developing a style and evolving thematic arc that carried into his final writings.
