Warner Brothers have just released a new UK version of their trailer for The Conjuring, and it wastes no time getting right to the scares. It is pretty much the same as the US version released a few weeks ago, however this trailer is shorter and more full on in its intensity. There is also a very small amount of new footage, mostly at the end, to enjoy. Best you watch this trailer with the lights on…
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 Conjuring arrives in UK cinemas 19th July.
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.”
