I wasn’t a huge fan of Warner Bros. first poster for The Conjuring – you know, the tree with a noose. It’s relevant and all, but it in no way demands your attention.
This new UK poster, for example, screams for you to look. Not to mention it carries a very James Wan-ish atmosphere (obviously the puppet helps with that).
“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 (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, respectively) 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.”
Guaranteed to be the horror film of summer, it hits theaters July 19, and August 2 in the UK.
