The Conjuring 2 movie review - Aussieboyreviews


The film is not as scary as the first, but the supernatural horror themes still promise teens the tension. The Conjuring 2 is honestly a tiny bit better than the first, but is not for kids.


A single mother raising four children seeks the help of paranormal investigators and demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren when she and her children are haunted by a supernatural spirit.

Aussie boy's thoughts

The sequel to The Conjuring is incredibly improved, entertaining and utterly scary. Honestly one step ahead of the first film, The Conjuring 2’s story is clever and is for sure an excellent direction to head toward for Conjuring fans. 

Like the first film, Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson reprise their roles as two paranormal investigators, but this time they’re helping a mother of four kids with a supernatural spirit within their house. The story here is absolutely amazing! There are very scary paranormal scenes and the supernatural activity is excitingly entertaining. The pace also causes the runtime of over 2 hours feel like an enjoyable use of time.

Therefore, watch The Conjuring 2 if you’re a big fan of The Conjuring or supernatural horror movies, making it remarkable to say that a sequel like this did not let us down. Don’t show up expecting no laziness, but the tension, frights and tale is, without dissembling, an extraordinary continuation for The Conjuring sequences.
