Blu-rays for the Weekend: The Conjuring 2

Patrick Wilson and Vera Fermiga are back as Lorraine and Ed Warren in the second instalment of “The Conjuring.” Based on a ‘true story’, Ed and Lorraine head across the pond to Enfield and help the Hodgson family with their demonic possessed daughter and the evil spirits causing havoc in their home. Due to eerie events during production of the first film, a priest was called to bless the set of the sequel– chilling!

With the movie terrifying viewers in cinemas across the world, we’re looking back at some of our favourite UK based horror movies.

Eden Lake sees Jenny, played by Kelly Reilly, accompany her boyfriend, Steve, (an early role for Michael Fassbender) on a romantic weekend camping. It doesn’t take long for trouble to find them as a gang of teenagers start taunting them. Things turn ugly when Steve steps in and a game of cat-and-mouse ensues through the woodlands.

The Blu-ray contains a number of special features including behind the scenes footage and interviews with the cast and crew.
