Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but here’s a poster for a brand-new horror film that promises us that its story has sprung from some true life tales. Crazy, right? Well, perhaps a little less crazy than we’re used to seeing on the big screen. James Wan‘s The Conjuring is actually based on a case file from Ed and Lorraine Warren, noted paranormal investigators and demonologists who were involved with some of the world’s most insane supernatural cases. Remember the Amityville Horror? Yup, it was the Warrens who helped investigate that one.
The Conjuring stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as the Warrens, dispatched with investigating “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.” Sounds fun.
The Conjuring opens on July 19th. [Press Release]
