Ingenious and adroit sequel to The Conjuring.
The Conjuring 2 is a rarity in terms of retaining the same classic horror vibe from the first Conjuring film and addition to more auxiliary action, character development, and teaches families on how to handle the harsh realities of bullying (from some characters' experiences). This film is also based on an actual paranormal case undertaken by Ed and Lorraine Warren from Enfield, England. The Conjuring 2 would be suitable for teens 14 and up because it strictly adheres to the classic horror genre, meaning no gore, language, sexual content or drug use; however, The Conjuring 2 does not shy away from the intense sequences of terror, major jump scares, and nightmare-inducing imagery, in addition to severals scenes of disturbing violence - some involving guns and knives. The antagonists - the demons - in this film are genuinely terrifying. The Conjuring 2 is a fresh, smart, and captivating horror film that lives up to the classic genre yet with some elaborate twists.
