The Conjuring

The full-length trailer for The Conjuring has just been released and it's a supernatural bonanza! Test audiences have been so positive about the movie that Warner Bros. moved the release date from early this year to the height of the summer movie season – July 19. That screams confidence since horror typically does not fare well in the summer.

The Conjuring is based on the case files of real-life demonologist Ed Warren and his clairvoyant wife Lorraine Warren who attempt to help the Perron Family after they are attacked by a malevolent entity in their Rhode Island home. (The eldest daughter, Andrea Perron, went on to self-publish a book about the experiences at the house in 2011.)

The Conjuring is directed by James Wan whose name might not ring familiar, but he's responsible for some of the best horror films of the last decade: the incredible Insidious, the genre redefining Saw, and the old-school romp Dead Silence. (He's also currently filming Insidious, Chapter 2 to be released in September.)
