conjuring-2-1

Starring: Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Simon McBurney, Franka Potente, Frances O’Connor, Madison Wolfe, Shannon Kook

OUR RATING: ★★★★½

Story: Horror sequel directed and co-written by James Wan, again based on a true story and this time the story follows paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) as they travel to Northern suburb of London, England in 1977 to help single mother Peggy Hodgson (Frances O’Connor) and her four children, particularly daughter Janet (Madison Wolfe), when their happy home life is turned on its head after their house is plagued by malicious spirits.

Loved the first movie, but this trailer looks too generic for me to buy into it being as good as the original. I hope I’m wrong though!

Verdict: This sequel might very well be, for me at least, even scarier and better than it’s predecessor. This might be controversial but I actually felt more of the creep and chill factor in this sequel than the original Conjuring, and I really liked the original. I think the creepy atmosphere, the fleshing out of the characters and the great acting from everybody really elevated this story and for me it really worked. Patrick Wilson and  Vera Farmiga are so prefect in their roles, they’ve really cemented themsleves as Ed and Lorraine Warren, and I also have to especially mention the Madison Wolfe, who played Janet, she was very beleivable in her role for one so young. I thdink if you enjoyed the first one then I do highly recommend you give this one ago.

It was just gently touching his cheek and then it stopped, and it looked right at me. Of course, my mom and the nurses did not believe me, but I knew it was real. Look, I know how it is.
