Sequel to the supernatural horror hit The Conjuring (2013). Stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson return alongside director James Wan. Set in 1977, paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren travel to England to help a single mum raising four children who are plagued by malicious spirits.

The Warrens are real-life supernatural investigators and authors. The first film was based on their reported experiences, and this one follows their Enfield Poltergeist findings.

A rattletrap haunted-house demonic-possession movie made with scary style.

This furiously bizarre follow-up deserves full marks for throw-everything-at-the-screen entertainment value, but none for execution.

The Conjuring 2, unlike pretty much everything else I've seen this year with a "2" in the title, might even be a slightly better film than the original.

Lacking some of the simplicity and elegance of the first installment... nonetheless a smoothly efficient horror movie, building to a powerhouse finale rooted in our emotional connection to the film's well-drawn main characters.

I would have enjoyed The Conjuring 2 a lot more if it was half an hour shorter. It starts well and convincingly and the middle just drags. The scares are pretty good jump scares some very predictable but a few to get the heart racing unexpectedly. The Warrens' were almost the let down of the movie due to the disjointed middle their characters didn't have...
