Echoing the sentiment on the typical Conjuring theatre crowd. Have not seen the sequel yet but I know I’m not the only one who had a distracting view of the first. There were 2 clearly underage children in the front row freaking out to every jump-scare, suspense queue, or ominous scene. You could definitely tell this wasn’t their first watch cause they ruined every horror sequence before it even began. It started becoming a joke and the crowd just had to roll with it. Liked Conjuring but didn’t love it. James Wan is a fundamentally good director with the craft though. Just wish he’d do a more original screenplay.
I really liked (Hunter’s?) take on the Witch possessing someone in every scene. I need to watch it again with that in mind. I just wished my theatre crowd was more receptive to it. One woman rudely got up from her seat and hilariously yelled expletives at the end.
