Lorraine and Ed Warren travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.
Horror - Like the first film in this supernatural horror series, bloodshed and
gore is at the very worst only moderate, if that, but the R ratings
very well deserved due to general darkness and intensity--so parents
should exercise great caution due to the disturbing content. Fans of
horror are the target audience, and fans of the returning paor of
stars should enjoy.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Very Good The Conjuring 2 proves that, with a sufficient investment of time and energy, sequels don't have to be unsatisfying cash-grabs.
Roger EbertFull Review Good The movie runs amazingly long, and could have lost at least 15 minutes to make for a tighter, scarier ride.
USA TodayFull Review Good Wan leans into the real history of the 1977 Enfield poltergeist legend, too, though it's not like he needs any extra inspiration for his fright fest — when it comes to horror, the man pulls no punches or screams.
NY PostFull Review Above Average But 'The Conjuring 2' belongs to Wilson and Farmiga as the sincere, loving, slightly square Warrens, with Wan tightening the screws for a rousing series of cliffhangers that should have audiences screaming.
