The Conjuring 2
Director: James Wan
Writers: Carey Hayes (screenplay), Chad Hayes (screenplay)
Reprising their roles, Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga (Up In the Air, TV’s Bates Motel) and Patrick Wilson (the Insidious films), star as Lorraine and Ed Warren, who, in one of their most terrifying paranormal investigations, travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.
The film follows the phenomenal worldwide reception of Wan’s The Conjuring, which marked the largest opening ever for an original horror movie. The film went on to make more than $319 million worldwide and still remains the second highest grossing original horror movie of all time, second only to The Exorcist.
Rounding out the cast are Frances O’Connor (TV’s The Missing) as the single mom, with Madison Wolfe (TV’s Zoo) and newcomers Lauren Esposito, Patrick McAuley and Benjamin Haigh as her children; Maria Doyle Kennedy (TV’s Orphan Black); Simon Delaney (TV’s Roy); Franka Potente (TV’s The Bridge); and Simon McBurney (Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation)
