Day 4. The Conjuring 2 (2016). Directed by James Wan. 69%.

The Conjuring 2 (2016) score: 69%

If you’re familiar with the ‘real’ Enfield haunting on which The Conjuring 2 is based, then you’ll need to take the hyperbolic events of this film with a massive pinch of salt. It’s generally acknowledged, without a doubt, that it was a hoax.

However, this Conjuring is still an effective scare-fest. I don’t think it’s as terrifying as the first one because it goes for a sillier tone and some of the effects are more second-rate than they should be, but it still made me look over my shoulder afterwards and feel excited about the planned spin-off based on the demonic nun character.
