As good as the first? In theaters on Friday.



I hope so. The original was the best horror film I've seen in years. The director is back so that's a plus... and the story of Ed & Lorraine Warren is so interesting. The reviews have been positive.

2014's Annabelle was a decent spinoff but not nearly as good as the original.

I think the Warrens were charlatans, but no doubt the first CONJURING was a great movie. I hope this one is just as good.

I am surprised at just how many people loved the first movie. I myself did not like it or find it scary at all. My daughter enjoyed it quite a bit. I will most likely see the second one with my daughter. I thought Annbelle was better than the conjuring.

The Conjuring was awesome. Hoping the second one is good too. Doubt I'll see it in theaters, though.

I certainly like what I've seen of the director's work - James Wan - Insidious (2011), and Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013).

the real story line behind the part 2 has long been noted as a fabrication by one of the girls of the original family the film is related to but the Hollywood power wheel will grind out anything to make a buck... will watch on dvd and probably only once.

Hard to believe people will actually pay to watch this film.

Diff'rent strokes. I'm sure a few people will go see Warcraft. You'd have to pay ME to go watch it.

I loved the first one.

In an age where horror movies seem to believe that 'scary' equates to more and more gore and cheap scares, the original Conjuring was refreshing.

Definitely want to see this one.
