So bad.

Loved both the Conjuring movies and was really looking forward to watching this. HUGE disappointment. The story was a real generic horror flick script, characters were absolutely forgettable. and it doesn't capture the same tense feeling that the Conjuring movies have. A terrible and unneeded movie just trying to ride on the fame of its predecessors.

The scares are cheap but periodically effective.

Laughworthy bumps in the night, creaky rocking chairs, a demon-infested basement and more gliding baby carriages than an '80s De Palma film.

Mr. Leonetti embraces the potential of negative space.

There's real craftsmanship to the film, but it's in service of a story that can't quite support it.

A grab bag of set pieces, red herrings and familiar occult tropes that never add up to much.

Ultimately so generic and formulaic that you'll probably forget it by the time you get home.

A couple of good jumps but this Conjuring spin-off is led down by poor writing, anodyne leads and an overwhelming sense of familiarity.
