The layout of the house is very unusual for a UK property of this age. At the top of stairs is the bathroom, with a bedroom at back. The front of the house has a small bedroom over stairs and larger bedroom to the right of it. Also, the rooms are way oversized for the style of house shown at beginning of movie. 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 was hoping that the sequel would improve on the 2013 original. Sadly, this is not the case. The Conjuring 2 follows a very similar structure to that of the original, but where the original avoided most problems that plague other horrors films, the sequel stumbles onto most of them.
The sequel makes two significant errors. Poor child actors and revealing far too much about the spooky entity. The first error, poor child actors, was avoided entirely by the original. The second, inexplicably, has the least capable child actor's character (Billy) stutter throughout the film. Completely unnatural and an unnecessary burden on the actor (and audience). B-B-Biscuits? (were the biscuits haunted?).
The second error, turns the film into somewhat of a comedy at times. We learn far too much about the deceased old man. "My house" always cracks me up, surely that's not meant to be scary?
Hoping the third movie is better.
