That Wan doesn’t ultimately do much with the sociological stuff isn’t surprising, but the best horror movies root their cliches in something authentic. Despite ending with a slideshow that puts vintage photographs of the Warrens and Hodgsons alongside their onscreen avatars, The Conjuring 2 is ersatz all the way.

For an hour the film is great – then, increasingly, less so. It’s not just the over-enthusiastic bits of English-working-class local colour, more a case of the horrors becoming too literal. It’s not scary when the ‘crooked man’ from the kids’ nursery rhyme comes to life as a spindly boogeyman, or when the deep spectral voice turns out to belong to a grumpy old codger, now deceased. The second half is both too flabby and increasingly daft.

The film captures a sense of that ominousness—until Wan becomes distracted, throwing in dozens of other things that don’t need to be there, and repeating certain effects (a grouch-spirit growling “This is my house”) so many times that they lose their potency. In the end, the effect is more one of boredom than terror. But there are still some out-there elements in The Conjuring 2 that are just odd enough to startle and surprise, and sometimes they’re not even the scariest things.

¿Qué dicen los demás?

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Conjuring 2

    The experience is comparable to a fairground 'spook house'; the thrills & chills calculated but unrelenting. It's engaging, with a succession of creepy images, neat atmospherics & perfectly timed jump-scares providing first-class entertainment, but like its predecessor it doesn't elevate the material beyond the level of sensationalism. Art direction & sound design are both impeccable, but the story falls into cliché.

  • Matthew Martens's rating of the film The Conjuring 2

    The real horrors here, of course, are to be found in the Ramsey Campbell-esque drear, grime, and grim claustromania with which Wan depicts, or evokes, or no, wait, I've got it, CONjures the cramped caverns of 1970s lower-middle Londonia. The Warrens' Amerisquare churchiness, which rubbed me all wrong in the first film, is somehow endearing; the strength of their bond lends an unexpected weight to the hoo-ha. 3.5.

  • Gia de Almeida's rating of the film The Conjuring 2

    I could've gone without The Crooked Man and the overly long run time but I still think it's a solid horror movie that is not only much better than the first one but also than the vast majority of its peers. Wan runs a tight ship and Farmiga's and Wilson's chemistry is a pleasure to watch along with great acting by everyone involved.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film The Conjuring 2

    "The Conjuring 2" suffers from a bloated runtime and a screenplay that tends to pile on trailer-ready jump scares in lieu of actually raising the stakes for the characters. Nonetheless, I found great pleasure in the genuine warmth that Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga bring to their roles, and the roving camerawork from James Wan and his ace DP Don Burgess ("Forrest Gump," "Spider-Man") is nothing short of virtuosic.

  • Palmat's rating of the film The Conjuring 2

    Solid follow up that in my opinion trumps the first one. I think that Wilson and Farmiga seem more at home in their characters and show good chemistry. The fact that Wan takes his sweet time to get the Warrens to England only make the film even more effective. Scares and tension are dished out with surgical precision and the only real misstep is the CGI Crooked Man, which really breaks the tone. Otherwise great!

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film The Conjuring 2

    James Wan yet again crafts an incredibly intelligent, visually stimulating and exquisitely paced film. What impresses the most is Wan's ability to control and feel rhythm. Using old-school techniques, astonishing camera work and Hitchcockian suspense, The Conjuring 2 is able to both frighten and enlighten.

  • Ethan's rating of the film The Conjuring 2

    James Wan has a special talent of bringing great horror tales to the screen. These films are not gimmicky and they have that feel of the horror films of 70s and not just because they take place in the 70s.

  • T. J. Mesen's rating of the film The Conjuring 2

    Wan doesn't rush things, instead taking the necessary time to establish mood, develop characters, and build up successfully two storylines before they converge in the second act. He's also a rarity in modern mainstream horror by having a perfect understanding of the jumpscare. Not using them lightly or for teasing, they always payoff with the real thing—the horror—yet he crafts them in a way that makes them feel new.
