The Conjuring 2

Horror


 

Ed and Lorraine Warren are summoned for desperate help to investigate a spirit in Enfield, England.

"The Conjuring 2" is a poor sequel that discredits the integrity of its far superior original with its lazy story-writing. Essentially the premise remains, moving its haunted house setting to North London, and then attempting to tie the plot-lines together to dismal effect. The scare tactics in this incarnation feel forced and repetitive, and a lack of empathy for the main characters further dispels interest. By the end, and with little vested in the investigation, you just don't care, which creates a disconnect that reveals the silliness of it all. Hoax? Scam.
