“There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.

He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.

He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse,

And they all lived together in a little crooked house.”

As a kid you may have heard the nursery rhyme about the Crooked Man. The rhyme was made frightening in The Conjuring 2 when the entity came to life. The fact that the Crooked Man was NOT CG is even more incredible (you can find out more here).  Javier Botet’s portrayal of the long-limbed entity, with a grin made of pointed teeth, was absolutely terrifying.

Back in May we reported that the latest spin-off of The Conjuring franchise, based on the Crooked Man, was in the works. Now, we can tell that the film has officially gotten the go-ahead for production to begin, THR says. New Line Cinema has tapped Mike Van Waes to pen the screenplay, based on James Wan’s idea.
The Conjuring universe is expanding at an astonishing rate. Since The Conjuring was released in 2013, it has spawned the Annabelle film and it’s sequel which opens in theaters this August. Then came The Conjuring 2 in 2016 which now has two spin-offs coming, The Nun, in theaters this July, and now The Crooked Man. The Conjuring 3 is also now in the works. The question is, how many spin-offs will it have? At this rate the universe is going to be huge, the biggest in horror history! And I can’t wait!
