Do we now know what The Conjuring sequel might focus on?

08.06.2013by: Kevin Woods

James Wan's THE CONJURING recently surpassed $100 million at the box office and is well on its way to becoming one of the highest grossing supernatural horror films ever, performing beyond all expectations while breaking barriers as not just a great horror film, but a great film of any genre. Our own John 'The Arrow' Fallon went bananas over it (read his review HERE) and many of our readers here at AITH have let us know how much they dug it as well. It is not surprising that, with critics and audiences loving it and the film itself making huge bank at the box office, New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures have fast-tracked a sequel, which would continue the adventures of Ed and Lorraine Warren, played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, respectively.

So what will the sequel be about? We now have an inkling of an idea as Aint it Cool News is reporting that the Warren case file writers Carey and Chad Hayes are looking at occurs in the late '70s and centers on two sisters in Enfield, England, who were allegedly possessed. According to the case file...

...Warren said she personally saw them levitate and even saw one of the sister dematerialize in front of her only to be found 20 minutes later stuffed into an oversized fuse box, contorted in such an unnatural way that they couldn’t have replicated it if they tried. She also said that the demon spoke directly to her husband on many occasions. Warren cited this case as one of the most terrifying experiences of her career.

While many of us would be up to see the next film focus of the Warren's investigation of the infamous Amityville haunting (as was hinted at during the final moments of THE CONJURING), that particular story has kind of been done to death, so taking another story from the Warren case files that most people are unfamiliar with sounds like the right way to go.

At the moment, there is no confirmation that this story is the one the writers will run with for the sequel, but as always we'll keep you up to date on news regarding THE CONJURING 2 (or whatever it will be called).

The Enfield poltergeist? As someone who's old enough to remember that story in the news, that would be absolute shite. 'Ghostwatch' was more believable.

Thre are so many to choose from.....

I just about to finish the book THE HAUNTING about the Jack and Janet Smurl Haunting that presumably still continues today. That would make an excellent movie. There are so many good cases in the Warren's career that these films could go on forever. I always thought they should do a mini-series based on their adventures. I would love to see a definitive Amityville movie that gets it right and tells all the details that are in the book. That would be a great mini-series, they could cover the

I would love to see a definitive Amityville movie that gets it right and tells all the details that are in the book. That would be a great mini-series, they could cover the Defao story in part 1 and go from there. Like a 3-4 part series, 2 hours each.

Well, I'm not exactly sure which case this is...

But I'd be alright with seeing a sequel, as long as the writing was as strong as it was on this one, and of course, they convince James Wan to stay on as director. I think this case sounds interesting enough, and I'm glad they're not going for a straight forward haunted house sequel... Otherwise, I'd start to feel a Paranormal Activity vibe, where it's a few new characters, a couple new gags, but it's all still a lot of the same. A lot of their haunting cases have been done.

Otherwise, I'd start to feel a Paranormal Activity vibe, where it's a few new characters, a couple new gags, but it's all still a lot of the same. A lot of their haunting cases have been done. The Haunting in Connecticut, Amityville, the Smurl case, and now the Perron's have all been touched on already. The one I think I'd most be interested in seeing was the case featured in the book The Devil In Connecticut. Here's a synopsis from Wiki:

"In 1981, Arne Johnson was accused of killing his landlord, Alan Bono. Ed and Lorraine Warren had been called prior to the killing to deal with the alleged demonic possession of the younger brother of Mr. Johnson's fiancee. The Warrens subsequently claimed that Mr. Johnson was also possessed. At trial, Mr. Johnson attempted to plead Not Guilty by Reason of Demonic Possession, but was unsuccessful with his plea. The case was described in the 1983 book The Devil in Connecticut by Gerald Brittle."
