    Oh they moved it back up to a summer date I see. I was kinda liking that October release date but don’t fix what ain’t broke I guess.

  • WolfQueen

    Crabby because the Warrens had absolutely NOTHING to do with the Enfield Poltergeist case. At least make the film about one of their own cases, not one they didn’t even do.

    • Jason Rutherford

      “American paranormal investigator Ed Warren claimed that Janet was once “sound asleep, levitating in midair” and concluded that the children were the subject ofdemonic possession.[6]”

      • WolfQueen

        I’ve seen the documentary on this case. The Warrens were never there.

  • Porty Guil

    i’ve read about this case years ago and i believe the two girls were just making up stories. i think one even admitted to making things up at one point. i know james wan will put his creepy signature on it and make it spooky as hell just like the conjuring

  • Stitches

    Lookin forward to it! Decent possession / haunting movies don’t happen enough.
