This is the first film in the The Conjuring (2013) franchise in which Ed and Lorraine Warren are not featured or mentioned in any way. See more »
There is a scene in which Sister Charlotte appears to be administering the sacrament of confession to one of her assigned charges.
Within the Catholic Church, the sacrament of confession can only be administered by a priest, so Sister Charlotte would never have had any authority to hear one's confession and administer penance. See more »
Was lucky enough to see an advanced screening the other day and was glad I went!
Not only was it a good horror movie, it was also actually a good movie! The story line was solid and made sense. Far more creepier than the original Annabelle, yet I found I didn't jump as much as I did in the first film. Yet the atmosphere it created left me on the edge of the seat the whole movie. Which to me is far better than jump scares! The movie also had very few slow/boring parts if any. Some characters do make stupid decisions which can be frustrating, but same goes for all movies. All the actors in the film were really good, which surprised me since most are so young. They're are a few hidden easter eggs throughout the film that fans of Annabelle and the Conjuring series will probably notice, which was really neat/surprising to see! This movie also ties in perfectly the the first film in a very surprising way that made the crowd of the theatre actually gasp in shock.
Anyways a great horror movie and a great addition to the Conjuring Universe! Will definitely see again when it officially comes out! One of my favorite movies of the year.
