Watch: ‘The Conjuring 2’ Trailer Tackles ‘England’s Amityville’ Horror Story

In the sequel to “The Conjuring,” demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren take on one of the biggest horror stories of all time: “England’s Amityville.”

A new trailer for “The Conjuring 2” debuted at WonderCon this weekend, featuring the return of Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as the Warren couple as they tackle the true story of the Endfield Poltergeist.

“After everything we’ve seen, there isn’t much that rattles either of us anymore,” says Lorraine Warren in the trailer. “But this one, this one still haunts me.”

Frances O’Connor plays a mother who watches her family tortured by an evil spirit. One child in particular — Janet (Madison Wolfe) — seems to be in more trouble than any of them. It’s set in Endfield, England, in 1977.

In a Twitter Q&A on Saturday, director James Wan said of the choice to portray the story of the Endfield Poltergeist, “We wanted to mirror the story of Amityville. They are two of the most documented paranormal cases in the world.”

The first “Conjuring,” also directed by Wan, ended up being a surprise hit for New Line after it was released in June 2013. It grossed $320 million worldwide on a $20 million budget.

“The Conjuring 2” will be released on June 10.

    It’s Enfield… not Endfield. I lived in the area where it happened.

  2. Vaia says:

    Most documented? Don’t tell me there are still people that believe any of this Amityville stuff was real. Sell it as straight horror without these nonsensical claims and I just might watch.

  3. Bill B. says:

    Why would I watch the trailer. I don’t even want to watch the movie.
