Warner Bros. has just completed its panel at the ongoing WonderCon in Anaheim, CA for The Conjuring, the latest haunter from horror master James Wan (Insidious, Saw, Dead Silence).
According to Twitter reactions, the footage went over gangbusters. But we’ve already seen the astounding trailer, so here’s a bit of news to get the hardcore horror buffs excited.
Wan told the crowd that he shot The Conjuring to be PG-13, but the MPAA said even without gore it was just too scary and it got an R, Yahoo! reports.
Starring Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor, Joey King, Shanley Caswell, Haley McFarland, Mackenzie Foy, Kyla Deaver and Sterling Jerins, Warners believes in their film so much that they’re making it a major summer release opening it on July 19.
“Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story, The Conjuring tells the horrifying tale of how world-renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.“
