How does it do this? Ed Warren checking the glass case on Annabell's coffin kept in the museum of haunted things in their house.
Meet the Perron Family: The Real Story Behind THE CONJURING – The 13th Floor
In the introductory case, when we are first "introduced" to Annabell's history, the two nurses arrive at their apartment one night and find the doll in a different location than where they left here and a note written in crayon, "Miss Me? Because the film is asking you, the viewer, do you "miss" your things? If you threw away everything you had right now, would you miss your stuff?
There are things that have sentimental value to us, which remind us of someone or some place or some time in our lives, and the film recognizes this in the photograph of the Perron's day at the coast and the locket Julie Warren gives to her mother to wear. What Annabell's note "Miss Me? How can I say this? When the doll has "returned" after being thrown away, the nurses find her in the closet, and it's in a cellar that the Perron's family conjures the witch Bathsheba.
Closets and cellars are where Americans keep stuff, extra and excess stuff we aren't using, and that's where the ghosts and demons come from. There are two types of objects in the film: This is the second or third night the family spends in the house and Roger fell asleep at his desk, being woken up by a noise and, of course, he follows it.
What's important is, Roger was the first in the cellar--where Carolyn has so many difficulties--and he's in this stairwell--where all the pictures will fall from the wall when Carolyn is there. In other words, why do things happen to Carolyn and the girls and nothing happens to Roger? Men symbolize the active principle of the economy, as we know, and women symbolize the passive principle of the motherland in this case, America ; the economy doesn't have to be changed, the film argues, the whole purpose of America symbolized by Carolyn has to be changed, from the inside-out and this has to do with a character only mentioned whom we shall discuss below with Bathsheba.
For a bit of a genre analysis: When a character goes some place in a horror story we know they should not be going, it's because that character has no choice, they are compelled by their own being to go upstairs or down stairs, depending on how that character has lived their life and patterned their values and decisions. We will discuss this more in-depth below with Carolyn going into the cellar, but what a character always finds is a reflection of their very self.
Roger, however, doesn't find anything because he was just doing what Carolyn wanted in buying the house, so there is literally "nothing" that can be poorly reflected on him by the witch. Roger's sin, however, comes out when he discusses with Ed what to do with the family: I don't know anyone willing to take in a family of seven indefinitly.
Roger's sin is that he had a bug family, requiring lots of resources and that family has become a burden consider the population control in China meant to "solve" these very issues. In other words, big families are bad, and the film wants to make sure you know that so you don't have a big family. Both types of objects can be mis-used: If you doubt this interpretation, the film offers us direct commentary as the family moves into the house.
How can a religious object be used for demonic possession? Or, rather, how can a inhuman spirit use a religious object as a conduit? If the object is being abused, and there are at least two ways to accomplish this.
First, let's say someone has a Crucifix of Jesus and they worship the object. That is an abuse, the object is merely wood and paint, so even though it's a Christian theme, the wood and paint become an idol. There is another way, however, that religious objects can be inhabited by evil spirits: For socialists, of course, God doesn't exist, so if one has religious objects about them--for example, a statue of Mary reminding you of her obedience to God so you are obedient to God--that is evil to socialists because you are believing in something that doesn't exist God and devoting your energies to Him rather than the state.
There are three songs in the film: Sleepwalk, by Santo and Johnny which reflects the "sleepwalking" of the little girl and most of the audience watching the film ; The Room Where You Sleep by Ryan Gosling and Time Of the Season by The Zombies fromwhich is the song playing after the family arrives at the house and the movers come to unload all there things I think the film starts the song at 0: Is he rich like me?
God the Father and the priest would be an extension of thisRoger Perron the father of the girls and Satan the "father" of Bathsheba and her sacrificed son. Why have this song playing when it isn't a "moving song" and doesn't fit the situation unless it does fit the situation?
The "rich daddy" being referred to might be the "rich Founding Fathers" of the country who bequeathed the possibility of fulfilling our dreams to us, and the purchasing of this home is that dream for the Perrons; since, however, they can barely afford it, Roger has to go away to a trucking assignment that will take him away from the family for a week at a critical time, so the family has become a slave to their finances and, according to the film, have not only become slaves, but have become "possessed" by the house and property.
This is a perfect example of the film playing "Hide and Clap" with us the audience. April, the youngest girl, wants her mom to play the game with her, so Carolyn is blindfolded and looking for April upstairs. Carolyn follows the clapping not April, though into Andrea's room where the left-over wardrobe is. Inside the wardrobe, Bathsheba is hiding and Carolyn has her first, real direct contact with the spirit here; why?
This wardrobe holds clothes, and what is Carolyn doing when Bathsheba leads her into the cellar and knocks her down the stairs? Carolyn was folding the clothes on her bed, so this interesting link of material goods we wear to Bathsheba's ability to possess us reveals our vanity and the role material objects contribute to our sense of self and self-worth.
In two other important scenes in the film, Bathsheba crouches atop the wardrobe and attacks Andrea, knocking her to the floor, and then leads Cindy into a secret panel at the back and hides her there during a sleepwalking episode. This is a common accusation against capitalism, but neither socialism nor the film treats the cancer--that human beings tend to be selfish--it just treats the symptom, greed: Socialists, however, have an answer for this, Lorraine in Rory's secret hiding place like Charlie's hiding spot in The Purge.
Why does Lorraine find "an empty noose" and Bathsheba hung herself? The neck symbolizes what leads us, what has a leash on us and how we are guided by external things instead of ideals or emotions.
Walker, is a big woman, and that--along with her last name--is all re really need to know about her to understand why she could kill her son and then hang herself: Walker indulged her appetites, her large size attests to that, but it's not just food she indulged in, but all her appetites. Walker's appetite for the house; how can we say this? Look at the locket around Lorraine's neck: Being absent from Julie almost gets Julie killed; why?
Lorraine puts emphasis on doing her job rather than being with her daughter. Now, the point is, the socialists will say something like this to make capitalists feel bad, however, they really believe that children belong to the state and parents inherently are capable of raising children because the state can make better decisions for the children's futures to benefit the state.
On a slightly different note, we can ask, why did Bathsheba get the maid to kill herself? The maid was on the property because her employers owned more house and property than what they could care for and keep up themselves, so they had to pay the maid to help them; the maid had killed herself--not by hanging, rather--by slitting her wrists, because she didn't need her hands because she would never be able to "reach" for the things she wanted she was dependent upon her employers for "hand outs.
Rory's mom kills her son; why? Walker gave Rory a taste for material things like her own taste for material things her owning the house and we see this in Rory being made present through the material object of the music box because it was a toy he valued just as his mother and Carolyn valued the house. We see this today: Now that we have established the role of objects and possessions in the film, we can ask the most important question: When you play the music and the music stops, Rory will appear standing behind you; why?
When our music stopped, inwe looked back and saw the consequences of how we were living and the fatalities--like our families; whenever there is an economic downturn, we look back and realize the damage our behavior has caused.
Normally, we look into mirrors to see ourselves, but Lorraine looks into it to see someone else. Please note the ruffles on her shirt like the ruffles on the bottom of Bathsheba's night gown. This is the perfect example of how the film tries to subltly undermine the "gift" Lorraine has. We only see Rory through Lorraine's eyes, and we only see his mom through Lorraine's eyes, and the "dark entity Bathsheba through Lorraine's eyes, so, it sucks to have a gift like Lorraine, much better, for example, to work in a factory where you don't have to be burdened by the call to greatness or do a service to others because you are their only hope; it's awful to have a special talent, much better to be a normal, average person who doesn't get put in awful situations like this.
Easty was not guilty of witchcraft, but wrongfully accused; so how does the film makers connect a real witch Bathsheba with someone who was only accused of witchcraft? Because, to the film makers, Mary Towne Easty was a witch. That's to cure her of her vanity--you might remember what happened in Jane Eyre to the girl with the beautiful hair--and her being pulled around the room by it actually acts as an umbilical cord Lorraine "severs" when she cuts the hair with the scissors.
April and Christine are still "pure" and untainted by the disasters of capitalism, so they can be converted to a socialist revolution--not having anything, they have nothing to lose when the government takes it all for itself.
- 'The Conjuring': The 'Real' Story in Pictures
In a like vein, we saw this with Carol Ann in Poltergeist: In The Conjuring, April and Christine can be saved from wanting a big house like their mother, but Bathsheba compelling Carolyn to "sacrifice" her two girls is basically, to a socialist, sacrificing her children to the American Dream of making something of themselves and having what they want in life.
Because Bathsheba was a property owner, she was a witch, and because she was a witch, she was married to Satan. Now, what God-fearing Christian wants to be aligned with that kind of condemnation? Why does Bathsheba "open doors? In capitalism, doors are always opening, doors for advancement and economic prosperity, greater freedom and opportunities, which is one of the reasons why Carolyn must go through the door Bathsheba has opened, it's a chance for something better, just like Mary Towne Eastey and her family coming to America, and the Perrons having the "door open" when the bank sold the house cheap enough they could afford it.
Better give up all your possessions so you don't marry the devil! None of this makes sense to a Christian like myself, but demonstrates one way our religion is being used against us: Lorraine explains to Carolyn that Bathsheba sacrificed her child to Satan as the ultimate slap in the face of God because a child is God's greatest gift; I agree with that and accept it.
However, what is being left out is that--in a socialist system like China's--the child is a gift from the state who decides who can and cannot breed and when and how often and that child is then given up to the will of the state because the state becomes God, not God Himself.
Socialism, to me, is satanism, not capitalism, but this is the film's agenda we are examining. This scene is the "interview" Carolyn gives Ed which Bathsheba will erase later; why?
Because Carolyn has "erased" her identity according to the film because socialists--like all those in China--are much more individualistic and fulfilled than people like Carolyn who are nothing but "baby-making machines. Christen it with Roger and the next morning she has a bruise on her leg, the first bruise. Carolyn, a stay-at-home mom, has no personal ambition because she has given birth to so many children and does nothing but serve them all day that's why the second bruise appears on her back, which symbolizes our burdens and the load we carry.
Staying at home, Carolyn has become a woman of appetites, and she is more concerned about her family living well than the welfare of the state, hence why this conversation takes place in the kitchen, the room more than any other in a home representing our appetites because this is where we eat and Bathsheba enters Carolyn through the mouth. Exactly where Carolyn sits is where April will be "buried" beneath the house, awaiting sacrifice to Satan.
Why did Bathsheba sacrifice her son at 7 days old? Now let's move into two aspects of next topic: And, What did Lorraine see during the exorcism? Because that's what Judas Iscariot did who sold Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.
Judas was evil because he "made money," but Jesus--to a socialist--was good because He didn't have anything "good" as in human terms but not Good as in being God. Hanging herself at 3: Whereas Christ seeks to confirm us in the 7 virtues, Satan seeks to confirm us in the 7 deadly sins, and Bathsheba excelled at that.
Why is she named after the biblical character? Walker, Bathsheba of the bible was a "social climber," who married the soldier Uriah but took up with King David and later became queen. Her name can be translated to mean "daughter of wealth" and Bathsheba securing the kingly succession for her son Solomon earned him wealth and privilege he would not have had otherwise, which, of course, is a grave, grave sin to socialists the only sin they acknowledge, actually, is wealth.
Because, one, it validates seeing the shadow on Lorraine's face from the music box as a reference to Nightmare Before Christmas to summon the "specter" of socialist Tim Burton, but--as we shall discuss further on--it creates a history of film supposedly supporting what The Conjuring wants to say. Lorrain finds out that the first inhabitants of this house were a couple.
The wife in this couple was named Bathsheba, and one of her ancestors was executed at Salem. Bathsheba was a witch, you see, and one day her husband came home and busted her sacrificing their baby to Satan. She declared her love for Satan? I mean in a serious way.
Also, there was a woman who lived in the house who killed her son, whose name was Rory. There was also a maid who killed herself in there, and a few other things. Then the tape just starts playing and you hear these squeaky demony voices. This lady was clearly human, though. I mean, she looks human. Anyway, they go to the house to collect evidence. They bring their assistant and a cop with them.

I have no idea what that cop is doing there. Not one of the Ghostbusters Nothing happens the first night. The next morning, Carolyn lies down to take a nap and Bathsheba appears over her and vomits blood into her mouth.
That night, Cindy starts sleepwalking again. Eventually, they find a false back on the wardrobe and find Cindy in the wall behind it. Lorraine crawls into the hole and finds a bunch of toys that used to belong to Rory. Then she falls through the floor and lands in the cellar. They get all this on tape.
Ed and Lorraine take the tape to their priest friend, and they send the Perrons to a hotel. Roger, meanwhile, goes back to the hotel and Andrea tells him that Carolyn has taken off with April and Christine. Roger calls Ed to tell him. They get there and Roger and the cop are trying to stop Carolyn from stabbing their daughter with scissors. They tie Carolyn to a chair and the exorcism starts.
Through the whole movie, Ed is terrified to take Lorraine to another exorcism because of what happened at the last one. This makes sense to me, as I think this is a key component to understanding what The Exorcist is getting at.
Meet the Perron Family: The Real Story Behind THE CONJURING
You need two people. Carolyn does some cool stuff while tied to that chair. The chair levitates and turns upside-down. She ends up breaking free and grabbing the scissors. Carolyn hears that, and heads straight for her. Ed manages to grab one arm, Roger the other, and Lorraine grabs her by the head. They finally manage to get Bathsheba out of Carolyn, who pukes up a bunch of blood and then her face starts going back to normal. Then the Warrens put the music box in their creepy room and the movie ends.
Umm…you put the wrong item in there. The wardrobe is clearly the problem. The Conjuring is really quite good. Ron Livingston, Lily Taylor, and Vera Farmiga are great, as are all the actresses who played the daughters. The use of space and the scares with the ghosts are really well done. You see enough of Bathsheba to keep being frightened by her. The more you see of her and that creepy-ass doll, the less scary they are. I hope so anyway. I thought I'd record those thoughts for you.
