The Conjuring 2

The Conjuring 2 ★★★★

Working off what worked so well about its predecessor while still standing well on its own as a solid horror film, The Conjuring 2 doesn't feel quite as tightly-paced or intense as the first movie. But it still expands upon the uniqueness of the first film creating a beautifully constructed, unsettling atmosphere for its story and characters captured by gorgeous cinematography and art direction, and delivering more bizarre, effective scares in the process. James Wan can honestly do no wrong with the horror genre at this point.
