Our Score
Fact checkers will be disappointed that director James Wan's take on the famous 1970s Enfield Poltergeist case isn't completely accurate. Anyone who genuinely likes to be frightened, however, will be covered in gooseflesh watching this spooky sequel, which ratchets up the tension as it goes. Mixing fact with fantasy, the unimaginable with the believable, The Conjuring 2 again features Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as the real-life ghostbusters Ed and Lorraine Warren, the couple who give a damn about the damned. They race to the north London home of single mum Peggy (Frances O'Connor, very good in a limited role) and her energetic brood, who are tormented by a banquet of inexplicable events. This solid, big-budget horror film triumphs with well-crafted frights. Like its predecessor, it's incredibly beautiful, and its period detail is correct even if the story has been heavily elaborated. If you like to be scared, The Conjuring 2 is your upside-down crucifix.


Horror sequel, starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson. Paranormal investigators battle sinister supernatural forces in London.
