You are in for a spooky treat tonight! The first teaser trailer has just landed for Insidious director James Wan’s latest scare fest, The Conjuring. The trailer is a teaser of the horrors to come, and features the films star Lili Taylor chasing a ghost around her house.
It begins with a game of hide and seek with her kids, but soon turns into something much more frightening, and here is proof that Wan’s Insidious was not a one off stroke of luck. The Conjuring appears less over the top scary like Insidious, and far more grounded and realistic, which should prove altogether much more chilling. On the evidence of this first piece of footage, The Conjuring is gonna be one seriously frightening horror!
Directed by James Wan, Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes wrote the screenplay. The Conjuring stars Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Mackenzie Foy, Lili Taylor and Ron Livingston.
The film centres on a a husband and wife team (Wilson, Farmiga) of demonologists and psychic investigators who enter the most horrifying case of their career, spirits in a Rhode Island farmhouse. Livingston and Taylor will play a couple who move with their kids to the farmhouse and begin to be haunted.”
“The Warrens founded the New England Society for Psychic Research in 1952 and later opened the Occult Museum. They are the authors of numerous books about the paranormal and their own private investigations into various hauntings. They claimed to have investigated over 10,000 hauntings during their career, and the Warrens were among the very first investigators in the controversial Amityville haunting.
The Warrens were responsible for training several paranormal investigating demonologists including Dave Considine, the late Lou Gentile, and their nephew John Zaffis.
“This one plays scarier because it’s more grounded,” said Wan, while comparing The Conjuring to Insidious. “I tried to ground it as much as possible because the realism makes it creepier.”
