The Conjuring 2 Movie Review 397


The Conjuring 2 is a 2016 horror movie sequel directed by James Wan and starring Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga and Frances O 'Connor.

This film is based on a case from the 1970's in Britain where a young girl claimed that there was a poltergeist in her house and strange things happened in the house in Enfield, London. Many people had investigated- some were sceptical and some believed her. The movie begins with Ed Warren(Wilson) and his wife Lorraine(Farmiga)  investigating the Amityville haunting. Lorraine sees a demonic nun and has an awful vision of Ed being impaled on something sharp. It upsets her. Cut to 1977 and a young girl called Janet (Madison Wolfe) is having strange dreams and she is sleepwalking. She thinks that there is someone talking to her. Her mother Peggy(O' Connor) sees it too and the family begin to get scared that there is something in the house with them. The media gets involved and things get worse until the Warrens are brought in to help.

Lorraine feels reluctant to help as she is worried about her vision and she sees the creepy nun again and she says her name which she writes into her bible without realising it. They go to London to visit the family. They discover that the entity in the house is an old man called Bill Wilkins and he wants them out of his house. He speaks through Janet. The Warrens investigate and try to talk to Bill.
He wants them out of the house. Ed tries to reason with him. They see Janet being possessed and believe that she is being haunted but there is doubt when they see a video of Janet deliberately setting something up to make it look as if the entity did it. They decide to leave.

They realise after they have left that Bill was being used by the demonic nun. They return to the house and face up to the demon. Lorraine gets stuck with it and she remembers the name that she had written in her bible. She calls it by its name and sends it back to Hell. She also saves Ed from being impaled on a tree trunk so her vision doesn't come true. The movie ends with an epilogue telling us that Peggy lived in the house until her death and she died in the same chair that Bill died in years ago. The Warrens leave and take a memento with them to add to their collection. They dance to Elvis and all is well.

This movie was good. It was creepy in parts. That nun was pretty creepy and I liked the story, even if I didn't believe that it really happened. It is well made and I enjoyed it all the way through.
I think that there will be a sequel so I am looking forward to that. Watch this if you enjoyed Insidious or the first Conjuring movie. I will give it an 8/10.
