Trivia

The Society of Psychical Research in England researched this case long before the Warrens, and it was determined as "Recurrent Spontaneous Psychokinesis". Grosse and Playfair moved into the house at one point and investigated this case for over a year. The Warrens showed up and stayed for only a couple of days. See more »

Goofs

The width of the wall between the front outside door and the bay windows varies between shots. The wall width of the actual location shot is roughly five times smaller than the studio shot. This is noticeable throughout the entire film and is highlighted by the placement of the old leather chair and the size of the hallway. See more »

Wow!!
8 June 2016 | by m-shellbySee all my reviews

Wow wow wow!! I've never been much of a fan of sequels but The Conjuring 2 was incredible. I'm never one to jump at everything 'scary' I see in movies as usually you've seen it all before & let's be honest, nothing really scares you much when your not a teenager anymore. However The Conjuring had me jumping all over the place. At one point I even yelped, much to my embarrassment, but that's why we go to horror movies! To be scared & the conjuring didn't disappoint. All actors gave amazing performances & the story had you never in a state of boredom. Walking out of the cinema I couldn't wait to see what The Conjuring 3 would bring! (Assuming we're lucky enough for another). Definitely a movie to see in the cinema. I give it 10/10!! Great movie!!
