    Well pretty little to be honest. But to break it down into two words #Enfield Poltergeist

    Well, this is a true story after all.

    One question though, who the f is this ugly? And what's with the nun habit? Plus the St. Peter's Cross (inverted cross) trope is stale enough (not to mention misinterpreted).

    Anyways, real excited for this. I mean not going to the theatres to watch a decent (ahem crappy) Marvel film for a change. Worldwide release 10th June (more like from 7th to 10th in different countries).

    I agree that the Conjuring is a much better film in comparison to its present counterparts. It has a coherent (well as far as ghost stories go) story and decent production values.

    The conjuring and sinister are my favourite 2 ghost movies of recent years. Haunting in Connecticut wasn't too bad either. So I'm looking forward to this. Decent ghost movies are few and far between though, and ghost movie sequels. .. eeeeh...

    I mean... insidious 2. *shrugs*

    Oh man, Sinister. That dubstep music, Boogeyman and all those 8mm films with funny titles. However the dynamics changed after the second movie I think
    once that projector got destroyed.
    Anyways, yeah Sinister is a pretty fun movie to idle away to.

    Conjuring 2 managed to be a great sequel that overall is better than the original. In a genre where sequels are rarely even decent, it's nice to see one of them succeed. The tension was there and the scares were pretty good. In the theater there were people behind me who sounded terrified for the large majority of the movie. I liked the slow build up, and the feints they threw trying to tease a scary moment were done great. James Wan really knows what he's doing because there was nothing in this movie we hadn't seen before, it was just executed a lot better than other movies of its kind. Definitely one of my favorite movies of the year.

    Great movie! Gave it a go and was not disappointed. Thrilling, yet not too corny.
