The reviews for The Conjuring 2 are praising James Wan for his ability to make a horror movie scarier and better.

The sequel curse might be over. This year might be declared as the Sequels’ Year. With so many sequels coming since January. Many great sequels have especially suffered on the U.S. box office including Alice Through the Looking Glass, Zoolander 2, The Divergent Series: Allegiant, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, and The Huntsman: Winter’s War. With X Men Apocalypse and TMNT 2 already falling on the box office, the two new sequels are ready to take their place. 

The sequel to the 2013 horror hit The Conjuring, The Conjuring: The Enfield Poltergiest is the sequel or simply The Conjuring 2 has already been released in some parts of the world and also for previews. The critics have already watched the movie and most of them have nothing but good things to say about them. 

Writer and director James Wan has been praised time and again for his individual style and approach to horror filmmaking. His works include movies of such gravitas as the Saw, Dead Silence and the Insidious trilogy.

The previous movie was based on a the life of the real-life dealings of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. The story revolved around the haunting of a family in a Rhode Island farmhouse haunted by the spirit of a witch. The movie was a hit grossing $41.9 million in its opening weekend. 

Now as the sequel is about to hit theaters all over the U.S., we will see the Warrens fresh off from investigating the Amityville haunting of 1976. Lorraine Warren seems specifically spooked by encountering a demonic nurse and envisioning the gruesome death of her husband during a séance at the Amityville home. She tries to convince her husband that they should end their excursions.

That is until the church engages them in a case in London where a British family is being haunted by a poltergeist. Before the arrival of the Warrens, the audience get to experience the haunted household of Hodgsons. The violent tapings, the moving furniture and the disturbed haunting of the 11 years old Janet is unnerving.

Wan does exceptionally well as he did in the first movie to capture the torment of the family. Critics have praised how Wan has kept the natural element very much in check with the fictional and supernatural elements. Capturing the essence of horror with brilliant cinematography by Don Burgess’s roving camera.

The movie is a must watch this season as the critics have given the movie brilliant reviews and great ratings.
