The Conjuring 2

The Conjuring 2

Rating: 4/5

Premise:

From IMDB:
Lorraine and Ed Warren travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by a malicious spirit.

Review:

I know it sounds a bit sick but when I heard a 65 year old man died watching this movie I just knew I had to watch it. It’s been so long since I got a good scare.

The setting in England was very refreshing. I loved everything about it. The family seemed very real.

The sets were amazing as well, particularly the house. It was so decrepit. I really felt for that poor family, living in those conditions.

As far as I am concerned, most of the performances were spot on. The girl playing Janet was pretty amazing at times.

And I did get good scares, although I could always see them coming.

Regarding the shortcomings, I would say the pacing was a bit off, the ending was somewhat rushed and convenient, the romance between the two investigators was a bit overdone – american style, I suppose – and some dialogues were just not good at all. Example:

– (…) entities like to kick you when you’re down.
– Well, that hardly seems fair.

It was just silly and I never really felt like that mother truly feared for her daughter’s sanity or safety.

The Conjuring 2 is still amongst the best horror movies I have watched lately, so I recommend it.
