After that, Warren decide to leave. New clues will force them to return to Hodgsons’ house and face a terrible demon, determined to kill them!

Our impressions and movie review:
Ed Warren and his wife Lorraine, who we first saw in “The Conjuring” (2013), are real people. The case of the haunted house in Enfield England had shaken the local community in the late 70s. The hidden camera video recorded by Maurice Grosse and Anita Gregory, combined with the fact the Janet Hodgson had publicly admitted that many parts of the story were fabrications of her imagination, did not prevent the screenwriters to present as true story the plot of the film. They definitely succeeded in writing a story with much suspense and lots of terror. And they had millions of reasons to do so. The first movie had a $20,000,000 budget and brought revenues of $318,000,000 😉

James Wan is again the director – he had worked with the two protagonists in “Conjuring” – and he did a really good job. Let’s not forget that apart from Furious 7, Wan is known for writing and directing many successful horror movies, like Saw – 2004, Dead Silence – 2007, Death Sentence – 2007, Insidious – 2010 and Insidious: Chapter 2 – 2013.

“The Conjuring 2” premiered on June 7th, 2016 at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Watch this movie and get goose bumps or feel the chills down your spine from your fear, despite the high temperatures of this summer.
