Trivia

Some have claimed that the real Janet Hodgson is a gifted ventriloquist or has the power to manipulate voices, and she admitted to faking some events. She revealed that around two percent of the haunting was phony during an interview with The Telegraph. See more »

Goofs

Later in the movie, when Ed Warren asks her where the old chair came from, she said her ex-husband bought all the furniture with the house. Her ex-husband couldn't have bought the house as local councils didn't sell their properties in the 1970s. Also, local councils didn't supply any furniture when a house was re-let. Anything left behind by a previous occupant would have been disposed of before any new tenant moved in. See more »

Gerne-bending, ground-breaking and an absolute classic
8 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

The thing about The Conjuring series is that it screams classic right at the first few scenes and just works its way up from there. While The Conjuring is definitely being remembered as one of the most excellent horror movies in decades, its sequel does even a better job by providing some extra well-done scenes that are not normally seen within the gerne.

But how about the scare part? Is it scary? Definitely yes. Don't bother comparing it to the first one. Just enjoy the movie and you will find yourself holding your breath until the very last moment.

Vera Farmiga was superb. Her presence was so strong, and powerful that she managed to pull the viewer through all kind of emotions. Patrick Wilson was also wonderful indeed. There are some subtle little hints about a sequel here and there in the movie. If those two continues to star (and also with James Wan), there is no doubt that it would be another masterpiece.
