The Conjuring 2

Factual error: The scenes outside the school are filmed in present day. The school sign is showing an 11 digit telephone number with an area code starting with 012. The 01 prefix was not implemented until 1995.

Factual error: No council house in Enfield has a cellar like that.

Continuity mistake: Hatchet marks are already visible on the door when Vic Nottingham arrives to chop through it.


Factual error: Fireplaces in the house are not those of a 1930's British house, they are the wrong size (more USA dimensions). You'll never see a British tiled fireplace quite like that.

Factual error: The movie opens with the Clash's song "London Calling", released in December, 1979. The movie takes place two years before the song's release.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The song plays over the movie, not within the movie itself. It's no different than the movie's score being played over certain scenes despite being written in 2015 or 2016.

Visible crew/equipment: When Ed is playing the Elvis song there's an unexplained arm visible in the reflection of the glass in the corner of the room. The arm is visible for around 1 or 2 seconds before moving. (01:24:00 - 01:30:00)

Dan Jim Young

Continuity mistake: The red napkin in Ed Warren's hand disappears and reappears several times while he sits at the breakfast table.


Factual error: A few days prior to Warrens' visit to the Hodgson's family, Janet watches the British comedy TV series "The Goodies" on TV. The episode that she was watching actually aired on December 22 of the year in the UK. Later, when Ed records the interview with Janet, it turns out that it's December the 21st. (00:28:20 - 00:31:25)

Revealing mistake: During the scene near the end, at the climax of the film, when Ed is holding onto Janet for dear life outside her bedroom window, as Lorraine rushes over and pulls them back into the house, 'Janet' is a dummy.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie, students pour out from the school. Margaret and Johnny walk up to Janet and Billy by passing between two tall boys making them apart. In the next shot, the boys are walking side by side behind them. (00:09:50)

Bunch Son

Continuity mistake: In the middle of the movie during a non ghost activity kitchen shot the Pyrex bowl on the top shelf moves slightly from one shot to the next. You can see the full frontal pattern in majority of the movie, however, it moves slightly, revealing where there is no pattern visible on the bowl.

Revealing mistake: When the girl is hanging from the ceiling her hair is following what gravity normally does. This gives away that the set is actually upside down and she is really on the floor. If she were stuck to the ceiling her hair would've been down on her face.
