The Conjuring is hands down one of the greatest horror films of the modern era. I'll fight anyone on it. The second was great and played well on the strengths of the characters. I reccomend both of them.
Joey bought The Conjuring 2, since after all this time, I haven't watched it! So now that I have here's my final verdict: 3/10
Let's get real here.
I am actually still wondering why this movie gets the attention that it does except for the fact that it has a cool looking bad guy, who isn't even the main villain and is shoehorned in like nobodys business. It was painfully obvious that Valak was there cause the character design looks cool on a damn poster. The movie, in comparison to the first, was highly stylized and super Hollywood, versus its minimalistic and atmospheric predecessor. The story line was alright, but then reading the actual story kind of hurts the film, as it's all based upon a hoax that got bloated news coverage. I liked the overall feeling of doubt from outsiders when it comes to things like paranormal research, which was the most realistic part about it. However, scenes that could have been considered endearing were often cringy and boring. The main villain Bill is pretty awesome and used very effectively, but torn down by the characters Valak and the Crooked Man. Some cool effects happened but still weren't interesting or thrilling enough. Instead of continuing with effective subtlety, the scares are really rushed and in your face, unfortunately not in a good way. After the first scene you're already desensitized to the Valak character who just becomes progressively less frightening over the few scenes where the character is used. All in all, wouldn't watch it again and the only reason I'm glad I did is to know that hype is hype as always, and James Wan cannot direct a good sequel.
This one is just another added to the pile of bad, overrated horror flicks that have come out in the last decade.
