The Conjuring 2

The Conjuring 2 ★★★★

Atmospheric, tense, and precise, "The Conjuring 2" brings to the table what worked so well about the first film, with even more developed, emotionally resonant characters. It may not be as tight and surprising as its predecessor, but it's a worthy successor, further proving that James Wan is at the top of his class in masterful horror filmmaking.
