After the lackluster Annabelle last year, fans of the 2013 supernatural-horror The Conjuring have been anxiously waiting to see what Director James Wan would do for the direct sequel, The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist. Now, we get to a glimpse at what’s in store as the original’s stand-outs, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return to play paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, this time journeying to England to investigate activity at a council house in the Enfield during the late 1970s. It is again based on a real documented haunting.
The 2013 film still – unequivocally – stands as one of the most groundbreaking contemporary horror films in mainstream cinema, making it highly likely that Wan will once again bring the same astute sense of terror to place this film as entirely worth the wait. You can check our review of the original film HERE.
Joining the cast is Madison Wolfe who plays one of the four children of single mother Peggy Hodgson (Frances O’Connor), both of the family that is plagued by this activity. In addition, newcomers Lauren Esposito, Patrick McAuley and Benjamin Haigh will be portraying the other three children. Orphan Black’s Maria Doyle Kennedy, Roy’s Simon Delaney, The Bridge’s Franka Potente, and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’s Simon McBurney round out the new cast.

The Conjuring 2 will be released in Australia on June 9th, 2016.
