The Conjuring sequel to explore the Enfield Poltergeist?

The Conjuring

While there has been no real confirmation as to which direction James Wan’s sequel to THE CONJURING will go, IMDb has quietly changed the title of the film to THE CONJURING 2: THE ENFIELD POLTERGEIST. What does this mean, exactly? Right now, not a whole lot because IMDb is pretty good at being full of shit sometimes. That said, if Wan’s next trip into the THE CONJURING is indeed going to be about the Enfield Poltergeist that took place in England in the late 1970s, I guess we should learn a little bit about it.

Here’s what Wikipedia had to say on the matter:

In August 1977, single parent Peggy Hodgson called police to her rented home in Enfield after two of her four children claimed that furniture was moving and knocking sounds were heard on walls. The children included Margaret, age 13, Janet, age 11, Johnny, age 10 and Billy, age 7. A female police constable saw a chair slide on the floor but couldn't determine if it moved by itself or was pushed by someone. Later claims included allegedly demonic voices, loud noises, thrown rocks and toys, overturned chairs and levitation of children. Reports of further incidents in the house attracted considerable press attention and the story was covered in British newspapers such as the Daily Mail and Daily Mirror, until reports came to an end in 1979. On Halloween 2011, BBC News featured comments from a radio interview with photographer Graham Morris, who claimed that a considerable portion of the events were genuine.

Sounds like the perfect grounds for a solid horror movie, especially in the hands of James Wan once again. Both Vera Farmiga (below) and Patrick Wilson are set to return as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren with a theatrical date eyeing June 10, 2016.
