Warner Bros just unveiled the trailer for James Wan's (Insidious, Saw) new supernatural thriller, "The Conjuring," starring Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor, and Mackenzie Foy. Check it out below.
Plot: The true story of Ed and Lorraine Warren (Wilson, Farmiga), world renowned paranormal investigators, who were called 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 horrifying case of their lives.
"The Conjuring" had an incredibly positive test screening, which is why the studio decided to give the film a summer release. Watch it in theaters on July 19th.

Looks like a pretty cool horror film, of course, not as scary or bad as Sinister.

Same people that intially investigated the Amityville house
So up to you whether you think theyre full of bull or not.
I believe there are real psychics n'stuff but the crooks on tv and the fakes that Houdini and his followers have exposed has tainted the reputation of the ones that really have a gift.
Psychics are the worst kind of crooks followed by fake contractors that show up after a natural disaster

Amityville? Total fraud. The lawyer involved even admitted the entire story was cooked up one night over a bottle of wine.
Anyway, really wish old Wan would do more than the haunted house/demon child trope. He did something quite different with Saw, launching an entire and seminal franchise, and now it seems he's quite content to languish among this undifferentiated mass of spectral spooks and ectoplasmic asswipery.
Wan will become a one trick pony, it seems. Which brings me to John Carpenter. He made some great f*cking flicks in the late 70s and early 80s. HALLOWEEN, THE FOG, THE THING, ESCAPE/NEW YORK, STARMAN. What the f*ck happened to him? His name was used to selk his films, just like Spielberg. When you saw his name on the marquee, you knew what to expect--chilling, dark, spooky.
But one day he just stopped giving a sh*t. PRINCE OF DARKNESS, ESCAPE/L.A., VAMPIRES, GHOSTS OF MARS. He started turning out some real turds. He became a one trick pony as well. Always content to stay in the horror box, never expanding his horizons. STARMAN was his most unique film out of his entire catalog. When he stopped being able to make even a good horror film--his bread and butter--Hollywood stopped calling. It's too bad. He was a childhood favorite of mine.
@Sac. Sorry man, but I think PRINCE/DARKNESS is one of his worst films. The devils ectoplasm kept in the bottom of an L A. church---kinda dumb to me. The only part I liked was the dream sequences from the future, and the mirror bit. Everything else sucked imo. Guess we'll have to agree to disagree. :)

I highly enjoyed Vera Farmiga's bushery and arse in Running Scared ;-)
Have faith in Mr. Wan. His films progressively get better, and according to the test screenings this film should be a pretty frightening experience. Okay trailer, nothing surprising. But effectively creepy nonetheless.
