We at I Love Halloween are huge fans of The Conjuring, so we can hardly contain our excitement for the sequel's release this weekend!
The Conjuring 2, like the first film, is based on actual case files and true life testaments from people who experienced similar situations in completely different places of the world.
The second film is set in 1977. Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren travel to London, England, where overwhelmed single mother Peggy Hodgson believes that something evil is invading her home. When Peggy's youngest daughter starts showing signs of demonic possession, Ed and Lorraine attempt to help the besieged girl only to find themselves targeted by the malicious spirits.
Co-Writer Corey Hayes says, “You don’t have to make anything up. Horror happens anywhere around the world, with any religion, with anybody, and the opportunity to go in to explore what happened in England, it’s just the beginning, because every country has their own crazy story."
This true-to-life sensibility is what makes the series so good, and we just can't wait to see it!
So, get out there this weekend, and let us know what you think!

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. The most innocent objects, including a toy fire truck, take on a haunting malevolence.
