‘The Conjuring 2’ Spoiler Review: James Wan Gets Scary and Sentimental With One of the Best Horror Sequels Ever Made The Conjuring was one of my favorite films of 2013 and remains a genuine contender for one of the best horror movies of the past decade. At the time, it felt like a summation of everything director James Wan had accomplished until that point: it was a clever crowdpleaser filled with scares, but it was also character-driven and classy, recalling an age where horror movies didn’t have to appeal to the lowest common denominator. The Conjuring 2 ranked high on my most anticipated films of 2016 list and my faith was not displaced.
