I just saw it this weekend.
I LIKED: That it's an R-rated horror movie that isn't all gore that still made a huge pile of money, which means that studios will continue to release more and more horror movies, which means that even if most of them are no good, there'll still be more good ones overall.
I DID NOT LIKE: The noisy audience.
OVERALL: It was mostly underwhelming and disappointing to me. Not TERRIBLE but not spectacular, like the first one.
What was underwhelming was it seemed to rely more on jump scares than dread. And the general storyline was less interesting than the first one, perhaps because I was more familiar with Amityville and Einfield than with the cases in the first movie. And beyond that, knowing that Amityville was a hoax and other information about the Warrens in real life kinda tainted the depiction of them as heroes a little. I did very much like the actual direction of the movie though, and the design of the you-know-what at the end was great. And I did like the twist about the ghost's reason for haunting, but wish it had explored that more. Also it felt like the characters made less logical choices in this movie than in the first one, which was distracting and annoying.
