The Conjuring 2 (2016)

Running Time: 2hr 14min
Release Date: June 10, 2016
Review by: Stacey

 I'm writing this review about a week after I saw the movie because procrastination, so bear with me.  Holy shit, I won't even beat around the bush, I loved The Conjuring 2.  I know that's not an uncommon thing to hear but this and the Insidious franchise are so polarizing within the horror community so it doesn't hurt to be clear about what side of the Wan fence you are on.  There aren't many films that he has done that I hate, to be honest (I just realized he directed the Kevin Bacon version of Death Wish- Death Sentence- and that movie ruled), but I feel like the first The Conjuring might be Wan's best work yet (I also love Insidious so my opinion might change next week).  That said, The Conjuring 2 is definitely a worthy addition to the cinematic universe that Wan seems to be creating with these films.

Crush The Skull (2015)

Running Time: 1hr 20min
Release Date: June 11, 2015
Review by: Stacey

This was one of those movies that dragged me in by the poster alone because the plot sounded pretty uninspired.  I came out of it pleasantly surprised by how not shitty it turned out to be.  Apparently funded entirely through Kickstarter (for $75,000), Crush the Skull blended a good mix of comedy and horror that ended up working out pretty well for itself.
