In the scene where Janet is home sick from school, after she hangs up the phone with her mom who called to check on her, she uses the remote to flip back to the station she was watching, and the first station she flips to reveals an adult Jon Bon Jovi in mid-song. Since the story did not take place until 1977, Jon Bon Jovi would have been only 14 to 15 years old, a full 6 years before being discovered. See more »

The Conjuring 2 Review
12 June 2016 | by burnham-42353See all my reviews

The Conjuring 2 is directed by James Wan and stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson. The Conjuring 2 is an excellent horror movie and just a flat out great movie in general. From the camera-work to the performances this movie delivers on all fronts. The plot follows a family in poverty in Einfield,England that start experiencing strange happenings in their home. After things become much worse over a period of time The Warrens are contacted to come and help. This is a very scary movie thanks to James Wan's direction from lingering and tracking shots he is truly a master behind the camera. The scares come quite often as scenes will linger and bring a huge sense of tension and get you when your not expecting it bringing some very frightening scenes. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilsons performances are excellent as you buy into their relationship and learn some lessons on marriage. The children actors have the be given credit too as they are great in this film. These kids are terrified of the haunting and you will feel their dread. I am so satisfied with this film generally people worry about horror sequels usually because they can turn out unsuccessful, but I am happy to report as a big fan of the first movie this is just as great.
