The Conjuring 2 doesn’t waste time in bringing the scares in. By that, I mean you’re pretty much in the thick of it within three minutes or so, being given some background (via another very notorious haunting incident) for what is to follow.Finally, Patrick Wilson. I love this man. He is truly perfect for Horror movies as he has starred in Insidious and Conjuring (Both the most successful horror films directed by James Wan), and he made that character alive in this one. The Conjuring 2 benefited greatly from strong supporting characters to outline an outstanding paranormal story. James Wan has delivered very effective shock scares and surprises that typically do not show up as heavily in other horror movies. The movie was thoroughly entertaining. THe lead characters Ed Warren (by Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (by Vera Farmiga) have given a very beautiful performance. The young girl, Janet Hodgson (by Madison Wolfe) needs special mention – her’s is yet another extraordinary performance.
