The paranormal sequel based on 'England's Amityville' is due in June
A spooky trailer for the horror sequel The Conjuring 2 – also known as The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist – has been unveiled, showing glimpses of a young girl in a London housing estate being controlled by the voice of an old man.
Due in cinemas on June 10, the movie is a follow up to 2013 release The Conjuring, and is also directed by James Wan. It will feature Vera Farmiga as Lorraine Warren, Patrick Wilson as Ed Warren, Simon McBurney as Maurice Grosse and Franka Potente as Anita Gregory.
The official synopsis reads as follows:
“Director James Wan brings this supernatural thriller to the screen with another real case from the files of renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren”
“Reprising their roles, Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson star as Lorraine and Ed Warren, who, in one of their most terrifying paranormal investigations, travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.”
The movie was originally scheduled for an October 2015 release, but was later delayed to the coming summer.

The cast have claimed to need an ‘exorcist’ on set themselves for the filming of the new movie, with Yahoo Movies revealing in January:
“Vera Farmiga got spooked making the 2013 sleeper horror hit The Conjuring. On the night she accepted the role of real-life ghostbuster Lorraine Warren, the actress opened her laptop to find “digital claw marks” across the screen. During production, she’d inadvertently wake up every morning at 3:07 a.m., the same time a clock would repeatedly stop in the haunted home Lorraine and husband Ed (Patrick Wilson) investigated in the film.”
The original version of The Conjuring won a number of horror-related awards, and made an estimated profit of $161.7 million.
The movie Annabelle – released in 2014 – is both a prequel and a spin-off to The Conjuring, focusing on the memorable doll from the series’ first outing.
