For sure it is better than the first but to be fair for the first almost the entire movie was in the commercials and trailers so by the time I watched it I already had seen most of it. Now that sequel did not scare me, did not disgust me and did not at all had me at the edge of my seat plus I even knew often what was going to happen which rarely happens for me (1 of the rare things i did not guess is that the old man was being used by the nun entity) but still I rate it good because it was good nonetheless despite horror movies supposed to be scary and disgusting. I was in it from the start (LOVE that it started in Amityville) because it was well made and the acting and the rest was well done too.
The acting, directing, editing, sets, script and music are good. The cinematography, special effects, story and makeup are great. The sounds and costumes are excellent.
