After taking a brief departure from the horror genre with last year’s Furious 7, James Wan has returned with a vengeance.
Aside from being a big hit amongst critics, James Wan’s The Conjuring was such a massive box office success that it led the owners of the Rhode Island house upon which it was based to sue Warner Bros. for the unwanted tourism they received as a result. It’s like that old Hollywood adage, “You’re not really a somebody until somebody else takes you to court.”
This time around, Wan will hope to avoid any legal woes by taking us to foggy London town, where the people are simply too polite to sue, in The Conjuring 2.
Based on another one of Ed and Lorraine Warren’s more infamous cases, the Enfield Poltergeist, The Conjuring 2 sees stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return as the husband and wife ghostbusting duo, this time seeking to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.
True to form, the trailer features a lot of what you’d expect from a James Wan haunted house flick; dimly-lit rooms, children talking to ghosts, and a capper of a jump scare to send a chill down your spine, so check it out above.
The Conjuring 2 hits theaters on June 10th.
