In the Conjuring 2, directed by James Wan, we witness Ed and Lorraine Warren travel to England in the 1970s to investigate the poltergeist activity plaguing a single mother and her children. Referred to as “The Enfield Poltergeist”, the real life haunting is the most well documented paranormal events in history. The Hodgson family experienced voices, levitations, manifestations and violence mainly directed towards one girl, Janet.
The Warrens are still recognized as the most famous paranormal/supernatural investigators of all time. In both The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 the Warrens are played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. The first film was scary, but I expect the sequel to be terrifying.
Franka Potente, Frances O’Conner, David Thewlis, Naria Doyle Kennedy, Javier Jerins, Sterling James, Robin Atkins Downes, Simon McBurney, Madison Wolfe, Shannon Kook, Lauren Esposito and Steve Coulter star along side Wilson and Farmiga.
In one featurette for The Conjuring 2 we see the real Lorraine Warren and Janet Hodgson discuss the “Strange Happenings” that occurred in real life and that are depicted in the film, hailed as the most anticipated horror film of 2016.
A new featurette features real recordings from the Warren’s investigation. Hold on to your crosses, the recordings are frightening.
The Conjuring 2 will open theaters nationwide on June 8th. Don’t go alone.
