The Conjuring 2 is one of the best horror movies I have watched, but there is one thing that I am confused about.
The boy has a Zoetrope toy, the Crooked man; and the Crooked man actually comes to life and terrifies the little boy.
I am under the impression that this Crooked man is a demon that is not associated with the Nun-demon, e.g. this Crooked man will hunt the family even if the Nun-demon had not been there.
My reasons are:
- Unlike the old man ghost, there is no indication that the Nun-demon has forced this Crooked man into its service.
- After the Nun-demon is vanquished, Warrens still take the Zoetrope into their museum in order to keep the Crooked man under watch, like the first movie, where Annabelle doll is an independent demon spirit.
But one can easily ask one question, why this Zoetrope demon terrorizes this particular family? It might have been ordered by the nun-demon.
What are your thoughts?
