Based on a true story, The Conjuring tells the horrifying story of how paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorised by a mysterious presence in their secluded farmhouse.
Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.
The movie stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. There has been mounting excitement for the film, with audiences going to see StudioCanal’s Evil Dead offered an atmospheric teaser trailer last month. Now, more content has been released, and it all looks rather frightening.
The new poster shows a dark figure huddled in a chair, clutching at what looks like either a child or a doll (which has its head turned towards the viewer). It’s obvious something is very wrong with it, whatever it is.
The film, which is released in the UK on 2nd August, will be the latest in a line of recent pictures to look at how people cope with the emergence of paranormal activity in their homes.
Distributors Warner Bros. Pictures will no doubt be hoping the movie repeats the success of pictures Paranormal Activity, Sinister, and director James Wan’s other films Insidious and Saw.
The Conjuring is released in the UK on 2nd August. The Edge‘s review will be published around that time.
