The first trailer for The Conjuring focused on a family off to a brand new start by settling in a new home. Trouble is the home was possessed by unkind spirits who weren’t too keen on playing hide and go seek. Now a new trailer for the James Wan‘s latest directorial effort centers on the real life paranormal activity investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren (played by Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson) and the unholy spirit that seeks to terrify the family and the Warrens.
Once again, Wan chooses to do away with the scares that overemphasize the blood and gore by focusing his frightful attention on the suspense aspect. The shrieks, off-angled appearances by the spirit, and other terrors in this new trailer are just the tip of this scary iceberg. The taglines and the music signify that there is something deeper and more terrifying than WB is actually letting on.
Check out the new trailer for The Conjuring below now.
