The Conjuring ~ Arranging the Pieces

The Conjuring ~ Arranging the Pieces | A Constantly Racing Mind

Now that we have the low down on James Wan's new horror film "The Conjuring,"  here are some more pieces of the puzzle. Like, what lurks in he darkness?


What can we learn from real life Ghost-Busters from the 1970's ?

The Conjuring - Lessons on Haunting | A Constantly Racing Mind

Infestation, Oppression, and Possession? Sounds like it came from the "The Handbook for the Living and the Dead."  OMG is that polyester? 


Playing up the "based on a true story" aspect of the story, the trailer has clips of interviews with the family members who allegedly lived through this paranormal events portrayed in "The Conjuring."

Here is a confrontation scene with Patrick Wilson as Ed Warren standing in the forefront. 



James Wan kicks up the tension in the latest trailer (above) with some creepy Poltergeist activity.  Following a similar plot line to "The Amityville Horror," which the Warrens also investigated, where a family moves in to a house with a history, bad things happen, paranormal investigators get the call to check out the place, a priest is summoned, things get scarier, family leaves home.  The challenge for director Wan, is to get the hairs on the back of your neck to stand up for longer than just a few minutes, give the audience something to talk about at the water cooler at work, and most importantly -- give the audience nightmares.
