Once again a nice horror produced by Wan

"My name is Bill Wilkins. And I am 72 years old. Where you come from? I come from the grave."

My wife was asking me already for weeks if we'd go watch "Lights out" in the cinema. Now, I really have no problem going to a cinema and watch a movie. Sitting in a cozy chair with a mega large popcorn and a maxi coke. Yet I wasn't so thrilled to go and see this one. Simply because my wife isn't such a fan of horror. It's a waste of money since my wife would watch it with her hands over her eyes all the time. So we compromised. What if we first tried "The Conjuring 2". From what I had read, "Lights Out" is much more intense and frightening than this sequel directed by James Wan. Let's call it an assessment test. Based on this test I'll decide whether or ...

Scarier than the first!

When a sequel comes out it’s always a concerned if it will destroy the prequel, if the prequel was amazing that is as in the case of the Conjuring. But from the get go staring with the teaser trailer a while back, it was evident that this one was going to be great, and it was.

Just a quick synopsis for anyone unfamiliar: This particular case, takes place one year after the Warren’s investigation of the infamous Amityville haunting's which we see at the beginning of ten movie. The Warrens travel to England to help the Hodgson family who are being terrorized by a malevolent spirit. The entity has particular interest in Janet making her its main target. The movie is also based on a true story like then first.

I for one thought that the movie was better than the first. One of the reaso...

The Conjuring 2 - Movie Review

There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

The Conjuring 2 is one of those rare squeals that wasn't terrible, but rather good. The squeal did a lot of things better than first film in terms of character's, the twist and the unpleasant atmosphere. But it's kinda rare that we get a squeal that's just as solid as it's predecessor with plenty of surprises under it's sleeve.

I have no idea how James Wan dose it. I seriously don't know how he manages to take the things that I usually can't stand in today's horror and somehow turn it into gold. That's why The Conjuring movies always stand out from the rest of the para...

Entertaining Sequel

'The Conjuring 2' sees the return of the exact same creative force from the first 'Conjuring' film. I loved the previous for it's focus on amplifying the basic essentials of a horror film to an eleven, delivering some great memorable scares in the process. The same is done here. We get a well paced shock treatment courtesy of acclaimed horror director James Wan, as well as a good story with characters worth investing in. Wilson and Farmiga's married paranormal investigators are once again the center of drama. Their personal relationship is seamlessly interwoven with the violent haunting of this less fortunate family. It's through the Warren's commitment to other's in need that we end up caring for the family as much. I found myself a bit more emotionally invested in the Warren's th...

Possession

Was macht dir am meisten Angst? Diese Frage für Regisseur James Wan zu beantworten, dürfte relativ leicht fallen. Er liebt die Horrorfilme der 70er, die in der angehängten Liste aufgeführt sind. In vielerlei Hinsicht dürfte The Conjuring 2 der ultimative James Wan Film sein. Er spielt mit dem visuellen Stil der Dekade, um die "wahre Geschichte" eine der bemerkenswertesten paranormalen Aktivitäten zu erzählen: Den Enfield Poltergeist. Wir müssen uns Wan wie ein Kind in einem grossen Spielzeugladen vorstellen, wir er mit all seinen Lieblingsspielsachen zugleich loslegen darf. Die Geisterjäger Ed (Patrick Wilson) und Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) müssen aber zuerst noch die Nachwirkungen aus dem Amityville Horror untersuchen. Hatten wir es mit mehr als einem gemeingefährlichen Pat...

A Sequel Worthy of the Original

James Wan has done a great job of turning standard cliches into horror gold. With The Conjuring he turned a ghost story (based on true events) into a thing of beauty in a genre that was rapidly fading due to a glut of "found footage" overload. This time around he sticks to his guns and once again delivers one a story (again based on true events) that delivers the creepiness along with the jump scares.

We open with the Warrens, Ed and Lorraine (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) taking part in their most famous case - the Amityville haunting. When Lorraine has a terrifying vision of the murders, she follows an entity into the basement where it manifests itself into the pointy-toothed, white-faced infernal nun. She is shown a vision of her husbands death - a vision that has haunt...
