Movie Reviews:

  • Reno: **This time a London family struggle in their haunted house.**

    First of all, I am not a big fan of the first film, but I liked that. Now this sequel was not bad either. This time it takes us to the London. But the film reminded me the 80s film ‘Poltergeist’, particularly the second part. So don’t assume it is exactly the same, only the scenes involving house seems similar, but the story was different. It is another true story based film, that’s what they said in the opening statement. You’re not forced to believe that, if you’re here for an entertainment, you will get that if you put your logics away for the two hours.

    A family of four young children and their mother living in a house in the London witness some serious paranormal activities lately. Particularly the eleven year old girl affected the most with the spirit the house possessed. So the American couple from the first film are brought in to do their best to help the family. When they try to contact the spirit, they won’t get what they were looking for. Instead, an unexpected blame goes for the girl and soon the family loses confidence in them. The overcoming those misunderstanding, particularly realising the truth brings a twist before concluding the tale.

    The one twenty minute never looked too long. Because there’s always something keeps happening, so the audience to keep engaged with. Probably this is won’t be your best horror film of the years, but being a horror themed film, it had good form of those contents. Not too scary, at a time those clichés were used in a good way to bring freshness in the scenes. I will credit the writers for that. Besides, the actors were undoubtedly good, including those little ones. For me this is a better horror film and I definitely look for another sequel. I hope this one would stand up to your expectations.

    _7.5/10_

  • Gimly: I know I’m in the minority on this, but I actually preferred it to the original.

    _Final rating:★★★ – I personally recommend you give it a go._

  • Sheldon Nylander: I’m giving this half a star more than I gave the first movie. As a horror film in its own rite, it’s competently made, although somewhat predictable as it follows most of the traditional haunted house film tropes. But it is better than the first one in that it’s a more cohesive film, with such corrections as how the background “monster” actually does play a part in the story, whereas in the first film Annabelle was shoehorned in but had nothing to do with the main story and served only as a distraction.

    Ultimately, the reason I can’t rate this film higher is because it’s about the Warrens, who were a couple of charlatans that took advantage of vulnerable and desperate people. While this is touched on briefly, it’s done more in the context of people who don’t believe them are all mean and unsympathetic.

    Again, it’s a competently made horror film that’s better than its predecessor, if a little predictable, but don’t look at it as being based on a true story. Take it with a massive grain of salt.

  • JPV852: Really solid sequel, and a re-watch before seeing the third film, in fact probably liked this one slightly better, with some good scares but better, a nice heart at the center with the relationship between Ed and Lorraine, played wonderfully by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. Once again, craft-fully directed by James Wan, a style missing from the others in the ‘Conjuring Universe’, though the plots didn’t help matters. **4.0/5**
