The Enfield Poltergeist trailer: documentary on case that inspired The Conjuring 2 is coming to Apple TV+

Apple TV+ has unveiled a trailer for the upcoming docu-series The Enfield Poltergeist, based on the case that inspired The Conjuring 2

Apple TV+ has announced that they will be releasing the four-part documentary The Enfield Poltergeist – which tells about the case that served as inspiration for The Conjuring 2 – on October 27th, just in time for Halloween viewings. Along with that announcement comes the unveiling of a trailer for the docu-series, and you can check it out in the embed above.

According to Deadline, The Enfield Poltergeist relies on more than 250 hours of audio archive to help recreate the infamous events in Enfield. Throughout four episodes, the events at Enfield are reconstructed using the recordings captured by Maurice Grosse, a paranormal investigator who archived all of his interviews from back in the day. The doc built a replica of the council house where the incidents took place so performers could reenact what is heard on the tapes.

The docu-series also features appearances by people who were actually involved in the haunting case.

Directed by James Wan, who crafted the screenplay with Chad Hayes, Carey W. Hayes, and David Leslie Johnson, The Conjuring 2 had the following synopsis: In 1977, paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren come out of a self-imposed sabbatical to travel to Enfield, a borough in north London. There, they meet Peggy Hodgson, an overwhelmed single mother of four who tells the couple that something evil is in her home. Ed and Lorraine believe her story when the youngest daughter starts to show signs of demonic possession. As the Warrens try to help the besieged girl, they become the next targets of the malicious spirit.

The film starred Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Frances O’Connor, Madison Wolfe, Simon McBurney, and Franka Potente.

The Enfield Poltergeist was produced for Apple TV+ by MetFilm and Concordia Studios, who were also the producers behind Apple’s STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie, which happens to have racked up more Emmy nominations than any other documentary released this year. This docu-series was directed by Jerry Rothwell. Al Morrow, Stewart le Maréchal, Davis Guggenheim, Jonathan Silberberg, and Nicole Stott serve as executive producers.
