Just in case you didn’t get enough fairly efficient and moderately-priced thrills from such fare as The Amityville Horror remake, Paranormal Activity, Paranormal Activity 2, Paranormal Activity 3, Paranormal Activity 4, The Haunting in Connecticut, The Haunting in Connecticut 2, Insidious, Insidious: Chapter 2, The Awakening, Grave Encounters, The Uninvited, The Unborn, The Eye, Case 39, The Ward, The Apparition, and The Possession, well, have we got something for you—the trailer for The Conjuring. Yes, yet another modern horror film that concerns either a ghostly haunting or possession, and is, of course, “based on a true story.”
Perhaps it’s a little unfair to treat The Conjuring harshly (even though it does make use of Donovan’s “Hurdy Gurdy Man,” which should have been retired after being put to indelible use in David Fincher’s Zodiac), but it does feel like the latest in another pre-processed ghostly horror film, a genre that is enjoying a revival (full of tepid and watered-down premises) akin to the slasher film craze of the early 1980s.
But hey, you want your trailer, so check it out: Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga play husband and wife paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who check out a possible haunting in Rhode Island. And guess what—bad things happen.
Directed by James Wan, The Conjuring is set for a July 19 release.
What do you think of the trailer?
