The house portrayed in this movie is a typical rented Council house found in the UK. In the first scene with Peggy Hodgson when she is talking on the telephone she asks 'How am I going to pay my rent this month?', but later in the movie when Ed Warren asks her where the old chair came from, she said her ex-husband bought all the furniture with the house. Her ex-husband couldn't have bought the house as local councils didn't sell their properties in the 1970's. Also, local councils didn't supply any furniture when a house was re-let. Anything left behind by a previous occupant would have been disposed of before any new tenant moved in. See more »
After everything we've seen, there isn't much that rattles either of us anymore. But this one... this one still haunts me.

The Conjuring 2 is directed by James Wan and stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson. The Conjuring 2 is an excellent horror movie and just a flat out great movie in general. From the camera-work to the performances this movie delivers on all fronts. The plot follows a family in poverty in Einfield,England that start experiencing strange happenings in their home. After things become much worse over a period of time The Warrens are contacted to come and help. This is a very scary movie thanks to James Wan's direction from lingering and tracking shots he is truly a master behind the camera. The scares come quite often as scenes will linger and bring a huge sense of tension and get you when your not expecting it bringing some very frightening scenes. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilsons performances are excellent as you buy into their relationship and learn some lessons on marriage. The children actors have the be given credit too as they are great in this film. These kids are terrified of the haunting and you will feel their dread. I am so satisfied with this film generally people worry about horror sequels usually because they can turn out unsuccessful, but I am happy to report as a big fan of the first movie this is just as great.
