Director James Wan clearly knows a thing or two about sequels. His The Conjuring 2 is not simply a remake of the first one but delivers a wealth of new scares, and despite a steep running time, it’s a worthy follow-up. Wan (Saw, Dead Silence, Insidious) delivers another adventure of those true-life Catholic P.I.s (Paranormal Investigators) Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga). This time they’re introduced in 1976 performing a séance at the original Amityville horror house on Long Island where Lorraine is terrorized by a demonic nun who haunts her dreams. The Conjuring 2 then shifts to England, where it focuses on the real-life “Enfield Poltergeist” case (the Brit version of Amityville). Peggy Hodgson (Frances O’Conner) a weary working-class single mother of four, has had her home turned into a playground for a host of demonic forces that may center on an »

Ever since his first feature film, Saw, was unleashed on unsuspecting audiences at Sundance in 2004, James Wan has continued to leave an indelible mark on the world of modern horror, creating two successful franchises—the aforementioned Saw and Insidious—and crafting several other truly remarkable genre efforts along the way, including Dead Silence and Death Sentence.
This weekend, Wan is hoping for a franchise three-peat with The Conjuring 2, his stunning sequel to 2013’s highly successful supernatural tale about the work of Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) Warren, two paranormal investigators who tackled evil time and time again throughout their careers. The follow-up film takes the couple to Enfield, England, where they must help the Hodgson family deal with an entity that is relentlessly tormenting them, especially young Janet (Madison Wolfe), who has become a pawn for the angry spirit.

There’s no denying that as far as modern filmmakers go, James Wan is in a class of his own. For over the last 12 years, he’s been the driving force behind numerous great horror films (I’m even a sucker for his criminally underrated Dead Silence), and he even rose to the gargantuan challenge that came with helming last year’s Furious 7. And before he dives into the world of Aquaman, Wan returns to his cinematic roots this summer with a special treat for horror fans: a thrilling sequel to The Conjuring that’s even better than its incredibly well-made predecessor and proves that character-driven genre stories are still the best way to scare the pants off audiences.

Thanks to the breakout success of the gritty shocker Saw in 2004, James Wan was immediately tagged as a filmmaker to watch. His next two movies, the atmospheric horror tale Dead Silence and the brutal thriller Death Sentence, may not have performed well at the box office, but they showed the increasing range of his talent.

Movie junkie Jessie Robbins picks a fright flick for a Saturday night. Rarely do I find a man who is kind, clean-shaven, sharply dressed, big mechanically blinking eyes, silent unless I tell him what to say and has a nicely separated jaw. Wait, no, that’s ventriloquist dummies. Hah! That would have been weird. Dummies get…
