The Conjuring 2 becomes all-time highest grossing horror film at Australian and New Zealand box offices

It seems we love a good scary film Down Under (Wolf Creek anyone?) as our homegrown horror pride has officially made The Conjuring 2 the most successful horror film of all time for Australian and New Zealand.

The Conjuring 2 has earned $10.75 million at the Australian box office, surpassing its predecessor The Conjuring, and other popular horrors such as The Others, The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity.

The box office success comes after The Conjuring 2 received rave reviews back in June, a surprise for horror sequels as of late.

Directed by our own James Wan, The Conjuring 2 follows paranormal investigators and couple goals Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) as they come to the aid of a single mother (another Australian talent, Frances O’Connor) and her family to fight a malevolent spirit in London.

The Conjuring 2 is set to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on September 13.
