In the beginning of the film, as the Hodgson children come home from school and enter the kitchen, the drapes hanging from the window make the window frame form a cross. See more »
The train the Warrens sit on near the end of the film is clearly a modern-day train carriage, complete with current reservation number style on the seats. In the 1970s most British Rail trains used the original Mark 1, Mark 2 or Mark 3 carriages, with more rudimentary luggage racks. See more »
After everything we've seen, there isn't much that rattles either of us anymore. But this one... this one still haunts me.

I absolutely love the first Conjuring movie. When I watch that movie, it gets under my skin. I actually feel troubled and somewhat terrible after watching it. I rank the first movie rather high. It bothers me almost as much as the Exorcist does. I don't even like to watch it at night. The feeling of dread in that movie is heavy. In the sequel, my patience was challenged a bit. It plays out like a sampler of far better films such as Poltergeist and The Evil Dead. It's fun for what it is: a popcorn movie. If you enjoy fun ghost movies, see this one. If you're expecting a movie on the level of the first Conjuring, you may find yourself a bit disappointed.
