What the hell is in this house? Lili Taylor investigates in the trailer for James Wan's The Conjuring

Feb. 27, 2013by: Niki Stephens

You guys in the mood for something a little spooky this afternoon?

The trailer for James Wan's THE CONJURING has dropped and the moral of the story is, don't play the clapping game if you move into an old creepy house because there are probably some creepy ghost kids haunting it.

Okay, so I don't know if that's the truth, but I do know that I've come to take a liking to the horror of James Wan. I think this guy is one of the best in the genre right now. I personally think it's still a genre that is lacking substance and is not getting enough good creative minds. Can Wan right all the wrongs? I can't say, but I do hope that there's a great resurgence for the genre. It's one that is near and dear to my heart.

What should you expect from THE CONJURING? The trailer doesn't give us much, but that's what is so great about it. Know that this isn't the full story, though I kinda get the feeling that Lili Taylor won't have a ton of screentime.

Check out the trailer below.

Synopsis: Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story, "The Conjuring" tells the horrifying tale of how world-renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help 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 terrifying case of their lives.

THE CONJURING starring Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor is due to scare fans on July 19, 2013.

This trailer was intense and the part at the end made me jump a little. I hope the whole movie is like this. Intense and scary as hell.

it actually made me laugh a little

Because as soon as she started "investigating" it reminded me of the Dave Chappelle skit about white people in horror. Just get the fuck out of the house if you think someone's there

They need to stop saying "Based on a true story". It automatically makes me want to hate the movie even if it looks good. Grow the fuck up there's no such thing as ghosts.(Looking at you, Ghost Hunters)

I'm a fan of James Wan

The man knows how to make campy horror look good and feel more like a homage than a gimmick. I loved Saw, Dead Silence was okay, Insidious was great, and this looks like it'll be thrilling.

Not bad.

Not a novel idea, but the trailer makes it look well done. The "boo!" at the end was expected, but delivered unexpectedly.

Paranormal Claptivity.

Before watching the trailer I was ready to write that haunted house horror films should be forbidden for next few decades but this one seems a whole lot fresher than the usual, stale, cookie cutter ones.

BBC Ghostwatch

The couple who this movie is based on, Ed and Lorraine Warren, were most famous for exposing the Amityville haunting. This story is based on another of their famous cases and could make for a good movie. If you like this type of thing check out BBC's Ghostwatch.
