Warner Bros. has issued a trailer for director James Wan's The Conjuring, starring Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air), Patrick Wilson (Insidious), Ron Livingston (Office Space) and Lili Taylor (Being Flynn). The true-case horror film arrives in U.S. theaters on July 19th.
Synopsis: Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story, The Conjuring tells the horrifying tale of Ed and Lorraine Warren (Wilson and Farmiga), world-renowned paranormal investigators who were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.
Very nicely done trailer. I want to see it. Interesting choice not to have any glimpse of Farmiga or Wilson. I was surprised, but pleased by how little this trailer gives away. Clearly there will be another in the future, but I definitely dig this one. Seems like a nice old-fashioned haunted house film.
EricJ, I hate to break it to you but there's no such thing as a good slasher film anymore except The Cabin In The Woods because you can only kill a batch of unlikable sexually active, pot smoking, alcohol abusing teens so many times before it get old and boring and quite frankly I prefer this horror sub-genre because it's smartly written and it has actual characters and if you don't like this kind of horror movie then you just another simple-minded idiot who would take a godawful slasher film over a great supernatural thriller.
Looks terrific! This film has apparently been tracking really well. Warner Bros. was so impressed with its reception at preview screenings (where the film I believe was being given 100% ratings by the audience) that they felt confident enough that this could be a big summer hit. James Wan has been on a roll so I feel like this has real potential to be his best effort yet. I can't wait!
