There is finally news about the sequel to the 2013 supernatural horror hit, The Conjuring. The sequel’s title, The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist, June 10, 2016 has been set as the release date.
Both films are based on the real life investigations of Ed and Lorraine Warren. The Warrens are famous for their involvement in hundreds of paranormal investigations and possessions. The movie Annabelle, that was released on October 3 of this year, was based on the Warrens’ dealings with a possessed doll.
The Conjuring 2 is based on the real life events that took place in the 1970’s in a suburb in London, England. Single mother Margaret Hodgson and her four children (who ranged from 7 to 13) were plagued by intense poltergeist activity. The children experienced shaking beds, moving drawers, mysterious knocking, levitation and flying toys. There were a series of investigations by different paranormal groups into the phenomena, including an investigation by Ed and Lorraine Warren. The Warrens’ determined that the events were not caused by a haunted house, but instead was caused by spirits attached to the children, particularly the 11 year old girl, Janet.
Unlike most sequels, the same crew are returning to work on the project, which includes the return of director James Wan. The script is being written by Chad and Carey Hays (the same writers who wrote the first script). Ed and Lorraine will once again be played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga.
