The Conjuring Sequel: Part 2 Already in the Works?
James Wan has always been a master of creepy storytelling, as seen from his previous works Saw, Dead Silence and Insidious. Now The Conjuring joins that array of hits, and a sequel is said to be in the works soon.
Based on a true story, The Conjuring tells the real-life experience of known paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, noted for their works with other paranormal incidents like The Amityville Horror and The Demon Murder Trial. It depicts the story of the Perron family as they call upon the Warrens to help them against the haunting of an ominous presence in the farmhouse they have moved into.
According to IGN, the movie has grossed over 100 million dollars and has received positive reviews from critics and audiences on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes. This led to talks of New Line Cinema developing a possible sequel, though the question remains: what is the upcoming sequel going to be about?
New Line Cinema president Toby Emmerich has informed Variety that a potential for the sequel is already being explored, with permission and support from Lorraine Warren herself.
As reported by Ain't It Cool News, the sequel will most likely be about an incident in the 1970s and will revolve around the experience of two sisters in Enfield, England. They were said to be possessed during that time, and Lorraine has stated that she saw the girls levitate. She apparently even saw one of the the girls dematerialize in front of her, only to be found 20 minutes later inside an overused fuse box and "contorted in such an unnatural way that they couldn't have replicated it if they tried". She also said that the demon spoke directly to her husband Ed plenty of times and that she considered this one of the most terrifying experiences in her career as a demonologist.
Sounds terrifying, indeed.
