Good story, Not enough for a whole film
In truth, there is barely enough story here to make a film.
Very good movie overall, highly recommended. Most of the negative reviews don't have any merit and are all pollitically based. Give this movie a chance at least, and it might give you a different perspective.
I have to say this is my all time favourite horror movie. I loved the first Conjuring but this is even scarier. Trust me you won't be disappointed, I've seen it many times and still love it as much as the first time.
I liked it more than the Conjuring, but I think I'll see the first again because I have a feeling I didn't like it for deja vu of seeing this done too many times. While some of the sequel was predictable, the pacing and some plot twists weren't.
I am confident to say that this movie is even better than the first one, and we all know how good the first one was. Yes, this movie maybe relies more on jump scares and yes, the first one was revolutionary, but this one offers few crazy horror characters at the same time that make the atmosphere even more wild. I loved how "The Nun" looked and the scenes where she was involved are maybe the best scenes in the movie, so I can't wait to see that sequel. We again see some awesome acting and well built relationship between the 2 main protagonists who make for an awesome couple that drives the movie from 1 to the 5th gear.
'The Conjuring 2' starts off a little slow and disjointed, but when Ed & Lorraine finally get to London to check out what's happening to a child - Janet - things pick up, with the possessions/hauntings getting more severe.There's nothing that scary here, as far as I'm concerned. It's well directed, shot and acted, but there's no truly terrifying moment. The story makes 'sense' at the end, but still plenty of 'why's left. Decent haunted-house film, but nothing groundbreaking or extraordinary.
