I can list you so many reasons why fans love this franchise. But one of the major reasons for that is the psychological warfare the Conjuring world presents to us.

7 Horror Films Like Conjuring
I think that Insidious might be the biggest horror movie after Conjuring. And just like Conjuring, the sequels might have not been up to par, but the original one is just too good to miss. This movie has some of the scariest scenes that completely freezes my blood. And I am not even kidding. If you are a horror fan you have to watch this movie no matter what. Because it will be worth all your time.
Let me tell you one thing, this is the scariest movie on this list. And they did that without any CGI, without any CGI monster. The atmosphere that the makers created since the start is something so ominous that I haven’t witnessed in any modern horror movies. And the psychology in this movie is second to none. And at last, the house is just gorgeous. I can say that it is a horror masterpiece and no one will deny it.
It’s one of the few times that an American remake of a foreign horror movie actually turned out better than the original. The Ring is just beautiful. It can be said as a proper American Horror movie. The somber tone, big scares, and visual weirdness all work together to create an engaging atmosphere that remains creepy no matter how many times you’ve seen it. The color scheme of the movie is so melancholy and bleak. And the final twist is just a work of genius, I must admit.

Not that similar to Conjuring, but I will regret it my whole life if I don’t involve this here. I watched The Grudge in the hall and what an experience it was. For the first 15 minutes, there was whispering and tittering. The audience was expecting a scream or jump scare. But after that, it was complete silence. Not a single sound from anyone in the hall. And that is how you know that a horror movie like conjuring is good and is working.
Lights Out (2016)
I can say that it is one of the best modern horror movies. After seeing some kind of horror movie over and over again, Lights out was kind of unique and cool. I had high expectations from the movie when it came out. And it didn’t disappoint me. The suspense was quite good and I was on the edge of my seat throughout the movie. Yeah, there were some dull moments but you can easily ignore those.
The Shining (1980)
I have to include The Shining if I am talking about horror movies. The thing is I am not that big fan of Shining. It was good, but I was never gripped by this movie. Don’t get me wrong, it is still a masterpiece. But fans have hyped it so much that it sort of went down. The book was pure horror and was amazing. And the movie wasn’t actually able to explore everything that they had with them. But after all this, it is such an amazing watch, perfect alternative of horror film like conjuring.
The Exorcist (1973)
Classic horror movies are the best in their genre. And The Exorcist is the perfect example of that. When I watched it for the first time, it deeply affected me. And even now if I watch it again, it is still an amazing piece of art. If you are into slow burners, watch this movie now. And you won’t regret it. This movie might be able to make you love horror cinema for what they truly are. And it is not jumpscares and scary-looking monsters. It is something that will affect you deep within.
