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.
