Conjuring 2

So as I mentioned at the top, Soph and I have been bombing around doing stuff and, yesterday, because it was tipping it down, we went to the cinema to see The Conjuring 2. Now I enjoyed the first movie, except I thought it lost it a bit at the end. This one I enjoyed right up and through the closing credits.

The story is based on the Enfield Poltegeist (with a bit of Amityville thrown in for good measure), which Ed and Lorraine Warren (the main protagonists) really did attend for a little while. Of course in the movie they are the heroes of the piece when in fact the Enfield Poltergeist just kind of went away in real life :).

This film has lots of scares and the evil entity is brilliantly done. It's a 15 so it's not a really gory horror movie, it's just a really good spooky one. Soph and I were hiding behind scarves and things from time to time in the cinema :). The characters are great too and Madison Wolfe is very, very good as Janet Hodgson - this girl being haunted.

I thoroughly recommend this film to horror fans who like a good scare.


Thanks to mee_eep 's recommendation I now own a spiralizer. It is awesome and I used it in earnest for the first time yesterday. It's brillaint! I gushed about it over on my Tasha's Thinkings blog and posted the recipe I made last night, which was delicious: Spiralizers are Awesome (and Healthy) #TipsTuesdays 32. It's courgetti (zucchini noodles) for me all the way now :)
