Official teaser poster for James Wan’s ‘The Conjuring’ goes old school



The very first poster for James Wan’s creepy new ghost horror, The Conjuring, featured the above image and was delightfully spooky. Today see’s the release of the official teaser poster, and using simply a house, a country setting, some mist and a tree with a noose, it is enough to give you the shivers! Oh, and there is something else lurking in the picture, see if you can spot it!

Using a classic old school horror look, the image even looks dated, giving a real authentic feel to the poster. The trailer itself came across as extremely stripped back, raw horror, and things are looking very promising indeed for Wan’s other haunted house horror as the world prepares for Insidious 2.

Check out the new poster, plus a reminder of the trailer below.

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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
