Pfffft. Screw that new Ghostbusters movie coming out next week. Ed and Lorraine Warren are the REAL ghostbusters and they’re all about busting up the fun that several nasty entities are having in the long awaited sequel to James Wans’ 2013’s stellar flick The Conjuring, appropriately titled The Conjuring 2. The question on everyone’s mind when a horror sequel comes out is always whether or not it’s as good, or maybe even better, than the original. And I’ve read some reviews calling this new incarnation ‘The best horror sequel ever!‘. Well, as the great Harvey Keitel once said…..Let’s not go sucking each other’s dicks just yet. Continue reading
Well, we are almost 5 months into the horror movie bonanza of 2016 and so far it’s been pretty……zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz……oh sorry, I snoozed off there. Even talking about the current crop of 2016 horror movies makes me drowsy. Yes, there have been a few hits and surprises (10 Cloverfield Lane, The Witch), but for the most part it’s been kind of ho-hum this year. However, all that could be changing on June 10th, when The Conjuring 2 is released to hopefully breathe a little life into the near lifeless body that is 2016 horror.
Anytime you have that many crucifixes in your house, things probably aren’t going to be sunshine and rainbows. Now, I have to declare that The Conjuring was a smack in the face to me back in 2013 when it came out, and to this day remains on my list of horror movies that I tell people they have to see. It was smart, scary, and visually all that and a bag of chips. Do the kids still say that phrase nowadays? Anywho, judging from the trailer for The Conjuring 2, I think it’s safe to say that it will be one of the creepiest horror movies of 2016.
The Conjuring 2 will find our favorite paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) flying to merry old England to take on some more possessed entities and creepy nuns apparently, as evidenced by the trailer. James Wan is back in the director’s chair, and recently he even put together a Virtual Reality Experience to hype you up even more for the June 10th release date. So stay tuned my friends, as I will be giving you my thoughts and review on The Conjuring 2 as soon as I see it. By the way, do you think it would be impolite to ask Vera Farmiga to marry me?
