Film Review: The Conjuring 2 is a rollercoaster of a scarefest1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
A 134-minute-long roller-coaster ride. That was how I felt after I stumbled out of the cinema, spooked and disturbed, after watching The Conjuring 2. As an avid fan of horror movies in general, and particularly of its predecessor The Conjuring (I’ve watched it three times, and counting), I had set the bar pretty high for its sequel. Still, film director James Wan manages to score great scares in his portrayal of the 1970s Enfield Poltergeist haunting, so the film is never boring and never predictable. Safe to say, it definitely lived up to its original.
The movie opens immediately with a familiar sense of dread – viewers are greeted with a darkened dining room as paranormal investigators and demonologists Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) sit down at a table, about to begin a tense seance.
