‘The Conjuring’ Trailer Promises Plenty Of Scares [Video]

The first trailer for James Wan’s The Conjuring has arrived online.

The Saw director’s latest horror flick is reportedly based on a true story. The film follows a family as they slowly come to the horrifying realization that they are not alone in their new home.

The film boasts an impressive cast, including Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Ron Livingston, and Lili Taylor. Wilson and Wan previously worked together on the filmmaker’s 2010 genre flick Insidious.

The Conjuring has officially been described as follows:

“Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story, the film 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.”

Although the new trailer for the movie doesn’t give too much away, it has an uncanny way of getting under your skin. James Wan said during a New York Comic Con panel that he wanted to put a twist on the supernatural investigators-versus-otherworldly forces genre.
