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