Trivia

Two spin-off films have been green lit, similar to the first film's spin-off Annabelle (2014) and it's sequel Annabelle: Creation (2017). The films are set to focus on the origins of two apparitions in the film, the "Demon Nun" and the "Crooked Man," appropriately titled The Nun (2018) and The Crooked Man (TBA) respectively. The popularity of the character and the green lighting of a spin-off involving it prove that James Wan's decision to change the Demon "Valek's" design from its original, more classic Demon horned creature design, to a ghostly nun.

Goofs

When Maurice Grosse speaks with the possessing spirit Bill, the spirit plays the Knock, Knock game. Grosse is recorded as clearly pausing for a second or so before saying in a flat tone with a falling inflection, "Very well, who's there?" When the recording is later played by Father Gordon to the Warrens, Grosse is heard responding almost immediately to Bill and with a rising inflection. Even allowing for frequency shifts due to tape-recorder play-back speed, there shouldn't be an inflection change unless the played-back version is a different recording altogether. See more »

An uncommonly strong sequel
2 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

The Conjuring 2 doesn't waste time in bringing the scares in. By that, I mean you're pretty much in the thick of it within three minutes or so, being given some background (via another very notorious haunting incident) for what is to follow.

The Warrens are sent on behalf of the church to investigate some paranormal activity which is whipping up a media storm in Enfield, England and, as per the first movie, they go and attempt to work their magic on the situation. As per the first movie, a family is being haunted and they fear for their sanity and lives. There are a few new twists this time round, so all does not play out as before - but it's not a complete departure from the format, which might have made it a bit more gripping in places.

James Wan's trademark visual style is repeated in this movie - his bag of tricks sometimes yielding a sense of deja vu but generally working like a charm. When it's intended to scare, it really does. The scares come a bit more frequently than in the first movie and do manage to build a lot of tension, even if you've seen the original, so well done to Wan for that.

What's really enjoyable about this movie, is its nostalgic recreation of 70s England. Wan has really done a great job of this, which is surprising given that he's not from there. Also, the central support role of Janet Hodgson is pretty crucial to empathising with the Enfield family and Madison Wolfe gives a solid performance.

It's arguable this one is as strong as the first. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoyed part one, or indeed likes movies of a haunting or possession theme.

Stick around for the credits - the music is seriously unsettling!
