The Conjuring 2

After sitting out the prequel, Annabelle, ghost-busting due Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return as paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren in James Wan’s sequel to The Conjuring. Wan wisely shifts the action to the UK and taps into the real-life drama of the Enfield Poltergeist to add some frissions if not credibility to the action. The dingy atmosphere of 1970’s Britain is well caught at times, with false teeth, Margaret Thatcher and The Goodies on television and David Soul/Joanna Lumley posters on the wall of the terrorized girl. There’s even time for a Elvis-inspired performance of Can’t Help Falling In Love With You by Wilson, but as the horrors pile up and demonic nuns shriek across the screen, The Conjuring 2 still manages to deliver the plentiful jump-scares that its audience demands.
