Overall a good movie. Not as scary as the first but still very entertaining and had some creepy moments.
Jump scares are entertaining, but it's so easy to use them to mask a poor film, and horror is so much more than getting the chance to flinch every few seconds. The Conjuring films have relied heavily on a good story, realistic characters, and an engaging atmosphere. It's the pervasive eeriness and slow unfolding of events that really make the film worth the watch. I was worried about this at first, being a sequel and all, but this is just as good as the first one. Amazing cinematography and editing make all the difference!
A typical and old-fashioned story of a haunting, but carefully and lovingly executed, with nods to 70s and 80s horror. Proves that you don't always need a complicated idea, you just have to know how to make a simple idea into a great movie.
