I wanted to write this post last night at 3am but I couldn’t because I started remembering the scenes from the original The Conjuring. And those of you who know stuff about possessions, poltergeists and ghosts, know that 3am is the ultimate time where all the creepy stuff happens. So here I am, it’s 9pm and I’ll try to write a post about the sequel, The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist.
The first movie, The Conjuring is the scariest movie I’ve ever seen and the scene with the ghost’s hands coming out from the closet and clapping is still something that haunts me. I expect no less from the sequel – preferably no more clapping ghosts, but I know that it is going to be one of the scariest movies too. My theory is always that movies about demons are not scary, but movies about ghosts and poltergeists are the scariest thing in the world. However, the cases of Ed and Lorraine Warren, who are famous demonologists, scare me like nothing else.
The Conjuring 2, just like The Conjuring, is based on a true story about Ed and Lorraine traveling to London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits and, judging by the trailer, it is going to be even creepier than the first part, which tells the story about a family who just moved to a house in Rhode Island where strange things happen with escalating nightmarish terror – also a movie I strongly recommend.
The Conjuring 2 is out on June 10, and although the first movie caused me a lot of sleepless nights, I can’t help but feel excited about another case with Ed and Lorraine Warren. By the way, the prequel to The Conjuring, Annabelle, is also a real Ed and Lorraine case and, in my opinion, it was quite disappointing.
