  • Martyn Conterio

    Director James Wan has delivered what should rightfully be considered his masterpiece. There is a breadth and scale of ambition at work, which really tops anything he's tried in the genre before. Most importantly: it's a resounding success.

  • Drew McWeeny

    With a rich supporting cast, a smart script, and an ensemble that is put through their paces in some intense physical scenes, The Conjuring 2 is that rare horror sequel that stands toe to toe with the original, possibly even improving on it.

  • Edward Douglas

    Wan's secret weapons are clearly Wilson and Farmiga, both such good actors they're able to sell the audience on everything the Warrens experience. The duo also does a great job selling the romantic bond between the Warrens, which helps you fall in love with them as much as you end up falling for the entire Hodgson family.

  • James Berardinelli

    The Conjuring 2 proves that, with a sufficient investment of time and energy, sequels don’t have to be unsatisfying cash-grabs.

  • Justin Chang

    Wan has a gift for investing even the creakiest cliches with shivery élan.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    The Conjuring 2 does everything you want a sequel to do. It’s as well made as the original, but the location and the story are different enough that it’s not just the same thing all over again.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Wan’s expert deployment of genre jolts is no less in evidence this time around, but as he takes his time — perhaps even a bit too much of it — interweaving the Warrens’ story with that of the Hodgsons, in the London borough of Enfield, he crafts a deep dive into dread. The film builds to a symphonic climax of heaven-and-hell emotion.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    A complicated, multi-segmented narrative that's much longer, more elaborate, more dramatic, and more packed with chilling moments and hair-raising visuals than one could anticipate, even from Wan.

  • Brad Wheeler

    A supernatural winner.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    This isn’t just a good horror film. It’s a good film, which just happens to fall in the horror genre.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    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.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Wan is a humane sort of sadist. His latest offers little that's new, but the movie's finesse is something even non-horror fans can appreciate.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    What makes The Conjuring 2 play deeper and darker than a warmed-over version of The Exorcist is director James Wan (Saw, Insidious, Furious 7). This Malaysian-born filmmaker can make his camera do terrifying tricks that are almost supernatural.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    As scary as it is when something abrupt takes place, The Conjuring 2 generates its deepest sense of dread when nothing does, and anything could.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Katie Rife

    When The Conjuring 2 focuses its efforts on scaring the audience, it succeeds, wildly. And why wouldn’t it? Wan’s got his horror technique locked down at this point. It’s the parts where it wanders away from the basics of creating and releasing tension that prevent it from outdoing its predecessor.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    The Conjuring 2 doesn’t live up to the films that inspired it (or the original) not because of the filmmaking laziness we so often see in horror (especially sequels), but almost because Wan and company are having too much fun to streamline their film. Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    This sequel might lack the delightful jolts of its predecessor, but it nonetheless maintains a slow boil of terror that’s consistently unnerving.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Lacking some of the simplicity and elegance of the first instalment, The Conjuring 2 is nonetheless a smoothly efficient horror movie, building to a powerhouse finale rooted in our emotional connection to the film’s well-drawn main characters.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Wan has a gift that most slam-bang horror directors today do not: a sense of the audience — of their rhythm and pulse, of how to manipulate a moment so that he’s practically controlling your breathing.

    Variety Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    There are some solid scares (Wan is too gifted in the dark art of gotcha manipulation to not make you leap a few times), but there’s nothing on par with the first film’s brilliant hide-and-clap scene with Lili Taylor. If there’s going to be a Conjuring 3—and this movie is just decent enough to suggest there will be—our heroes should be a little choosier about which case they dust off next.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The movie is a vexing, patience-testing two and a quarter hours, and takes a full hour to get the Warrens on a plane to the UK. But the few, well-spaced out scares are real spine-tinglers.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Wan knows how to sustain tension through terror, though he could have abbreviated the flabby middle of the movie.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    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. Expect another sequel for sure.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The Conjuring 2 satisfies more than it disappoints.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Wan retains his touch for ratcheting up the tension, providing doses of comic relief and then BOOM!, delivering another gotcha moment that will leave audiences jumping in their seats and then giggling at the visceral thrill ride — but the scary moments aren’t as fresh this time around, and with a running time of 2 hours, 13 minutes, The Conjuring 2 is at least a half hour too long. At least.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The Conjuring 2 won't make anyone forget the first film, but it's good enough that you'll hope they make another.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    Director James Wan has his method down. The scares are effective and the camerawork is superb, all lurking long shots and short sharp shocks. Wan is fully aware of the austerity-era parallels in his story, and the period detail is surprisingly authentic.... But there’s little here we haven’t seen before.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    The Conjuring 2 is serviceable horror, heavy on the audio stings yet smarter than the average gorefest.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Russ Fischer

    As it fritters away character work and ideas about faith and devotion, this is a film clever enough to scare us but not smart enough to accomplish anything more.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Daniel Schindel

    While The Conjuring 2 smoothly goes through the motions of setup, building anticipation, and payoff in myriad ways, the slickness of the production interferes with any proper sense of dread.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Christopher Gray

    The Conjuring 2 is a model of heightened tension and uneasy release, but the tropes propelling these night terrors grow stale pretty quickly.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Wan is coming off the world-conquering success of his wildly entertaining automotive action sequel Furious Seven, and he sometimes seems to be trying to bring the splashy cacophony of that movie into a world that thrives on sparseness and focus. It doesn’t work.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    The film doesn't lack nerve-racking sequences or well-tuned jump scares. But it stitches them all together with a profound lack of character consistency.

    The Verge Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Refreshingly, there’s nary a cheap scare manifested in this Conjuring, although the unspoken corollary to that is that The Conjuring 2 just isn’t very scary, or even unnerving.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Matt Glasby

    This furiously bizarre follow-up deserves full marks for throw-everything-at-the-screen entertainment value, but none for execution.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Soren Andersen

    You loved “The Conjuring” in 2013. Now here’s “2,” with more, more, more of what you adored the first time around.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Michael Roffman

    It’s slick and stylish to the point of distraction. This isn’t horror; this is exaggerated carnival fare.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Erin Whitney

    If The Conjuring is an example of the haunted house movie done right, The Conjuring 2 is an example of everything gone wrong. You can only retread old tropes so many times.
