After delivering a dose of horror for the summer back in 2013 with The Conjuring, director James Wan is back with the sequel, and if the new trailer is any indicator, this looks like one of the most intense hauntings that the genre has ever seen.
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are back as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, and this time they’re going across the pond to check out what many have referred to as England’s Amityville, where a single mother and her children are being terrified over and over again by dark forces. It’s like The Exorcist on steroids.

After making a comfortable home at Netflix for his series Derek, British comedian Ricky Gervais is bringing an original comedy feature to the streaming service with Special Correspondents. In what feels like a Tropic Thunder meets Wag the Dog kind of story, Gervais plays a sound engineer who teams up with a radio journalist (Eric Bana) to fake a report from the front line of a war in Ecuador. But when they’re believed to be missing in the country, they end up having to actually go to Ecuador so their deception isn’t discovered.
The first Special Correspondents trailer has arrived, and while it doesn’t seem quite as hilarious as I was hoping, there are a few laughs to be had. Watch it below. Read More »
The Conjuring 2 mostly takes place in in Enfield, London, but that’s not where we travelled to visit the set of director James Wan‘s horror sequel. On this day in the schedule, the shoot was in Santa Clarita, CA — an unmistakable double for Enfield, London. Working not too far from the Warner Bros. lot, on a soundstage, the crew built the kind of basement you expect to see in a horror movie: dark, wet, and dangerous.
But, hopefully, like the first film, The Conjuring 2 isn’t the kind of movie we expect.

There was a lot of skepticism going into A&E’s Bates Motel. “Who wants to see a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock‘s classic? Why do we need to see Norman Bates’ origin story? How can this sustain itself for five or more seasons?” The show ultimately proved to be a success with viewers. However, after season one, it’s struggled to prove those skeptics wrong.
Bates Motel returns this March. Watch the Bates Motel season 4 teaser trailer.

When The Conjuring originally opened in 2013, I couldn’t help but feel a little guilty placing it on my top ten of the year. After all, horror fans can be a desperate lot – we see something passable in an ocean of junk and latch on to it like it’s the second coming. As much as I loved James Wan‘s creepy, classy, and perfectly assembled haunted house movie, I was worried it wasn’t going to stand the test of time. I was worried that repeat viewings would reveal it to be something interesting but lackluster, a well-executed but empty experience.
Boy, was I wrong. Several years later, the first trailer for The Conjuring 2 is here and I have enough viewings of the first movie under my belt to know that this is the sequel to one of the best horror movies of the millennium. The second cinematic adventure of real-life paranormal researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren already has a place on my list of most anticipated movies of 2016.

Director James Wan has posted a new batch of photos from the set of his sequel to The Conjuring and now we can’t help but wish this movie was titled An American Exorcist Couple in London.
Dumb jokes aside, these images do give us a tiny taste of the upcoming sequel, which is actually called The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist and is set in England in the mid-1970s. Originally shared on Wan’s Twitter and Instagram pages, these photos show off the cast in period costume, Marylebone Station transported a few decades into the past, and even a tease of the film’s Christmastime setting.
You can check out the Conjuring 2 photos for yourself after the jump.

No horror film in recent memory has demanded a sequel more than The Conjuring. James Wan‘s 2013 haunted house extravaganza remains one of the smartest, spookiest, and classiest mainstream genre films of the past few years, with husband-and-wife paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren being the most exciting horror protagonists to emerge in quite some time. So yeah, of course you’ll want to take a look at a new photo taken on the set of The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist, especially since it features Patrick Wilson rocking some killer sideburns.
