So today I’ve just seen “The Conjuring 2”. I’ve seen the first one and thought it was great so I’ve seen the 2nd one today. Here’s my review.
Plot/Synopsis: Lorraine and Ed Warren travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.
This story tells about the real-life story of the Enfield Haunting over in the UK. I’m a huge fan of the Conjuring movies ’cause they make you think that haunted houses and demonic possession is real. They make you think that stuff is believable and it probably is real. That’s what makes “The Conjuring” movies so scary. I think James Wan is getting better at every horror film he makes. He does a good job at making horror films where there’s less blood & gore. You’re not gonna see much blood & gore in this movie. In my opinion, that’s what makes a true horror film is when they don’t rely on the blood & gore too much.
The movie is a good 2 and a half hours so you will see plenty of scares. I love the unpredictability in this film ’cause you never knew what was going to happen next. If you want an “edge of your seat” film, this film will do it to you. I thought it was better than the first and scarier than the first. This movie makes me want to research more about the Enfield Haunting. Tells the real life story of Janet Hodgson. If you ever wanted to know more about the Amityville Horror this film will give you more insight.
I love horror films based on real life events ’cause they’re so inspiring. I’m sure they’re inspiring other people too which is why these movies are being so successful. I think Patrick Wilson is a phenomenal actor too and these movies are gonna help him become a big star.
“The Conjuring 2” was really great. No complaints at all really. Finally a good horror film with a plot, good writing and good acting too. It was an excellent film all around.
Score for “The Conjuring 2” = **** (4 stars as in “Excellent”
