James Wan’s The Conjuring is already one of the best haunters ever made. And now he’s back with a sequel, which details “The Enfield Poltergeist.”
But before The Conjuring 2 takes off to London, it will take viewers to Long Island in New York.
We were contacted by Bloody reader Angelo Mancini who reached out to Alexa Najera, one of the stars of The Conjuring 2, in hopes of confirming a new Internet rumor.
@SarahNCortez fans are speculating that the defeo family will be the opening scene for the conjuring 2…can you confirm?

@ItalianBadAss36 I play Allison, not Dawn.
— Alexa Najera (@uhhlexa) December 12, 2015
As shown above, Najera not only responds to the question, but also confirms her character is ‘Allison.’
In the original 1974 Amityville murders, the victims were identified as Ronald J. DeFeo, 43, his wife, Louise, 42, two sons, John, 9, and Mark, 12, and two daughters, Allison, 13, and Dawn 18.
Taking a peak onto iMBD, you’ll also find a character named ‘Dawn,’ played by Sarah Cortez, which would be the DeFeo sister. Also sneakingly hiding on the site are Louise (Jennifer Collins) and Ronald Sr. (Michael DeBartolo), the parents of the original murders, while the sons are not listed (there are a few blank character names, which probably explain it).
What makes this even more exciting is that those familiar with the Amityville case know that Ed and Lorraine Warren – played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, respectively – investigated the alleged haunted house 20 days after the Litz family fled the scene.
20 days after the Lutz’s fled Paranormal Investigators Ed & Lorraine Warren were called in by Marvin Scott a news reporter with channel 5 NY who had covered the Amityville story and worked on a prior investigation with the Warrens.
A team of reporters, investigators, and parapsychologist’s were assembled by Ed Warren and met at the home at 112 Ocean Avenue., the Lutz family refused to re-enter the home during the investigation.
During the investigation Ed was physically pushed to the floor while using some religious provocation in the basement, Lorraine was also overwhelmed by the sense of a Demonic presence and was plagued by her psychic impressions of the Defeo Families bodies laid along the floor covered in white sheets, and a sense of physically being pushed back.
The research team also captured an image of spirit that appeared as a little boy (pictured) peering from the second floor. The land was also found to be used by John Ketchum . John Ketchum was a practicing black magician and had a cottage on the land prior to the construct of the Dutch Colonial in 1924. John requested that his remains be buried on that property and they remain there till this day.
The Shinicock Indians also at one time had an enclosure on this land that was used to house the sick, and the mad, those in this enclosure were left to die.
The Warrens believed that the suffering there had left the property with a very negative energy and dark history. And that Such a negative history was a magnet for demonic spirits and the preternatural.
The Warrens believe these energies directly impacted the lives of both the Defoe’s and the Lutz’s. The Warrens retrieved a handful of the Lutz’s earthly possessions and deed for the property The Lutz’s sold the rest of their belongings and relocated to California.
How cool is it to find out that The Conjuring 2 could also be a mini-remake of The Amityville Horror, which approaches the subject from the latter half of its history!?
The Conjuring 2 stars Farmiga and Wilson 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.
Outside of allegedly opening with the Amityville Horror case, the sequel will tell of the infamous “Enfield Poltergeist,” which took place at a council house in Brimsdown village, borough of Enfield, England during the late 1970s.
Rounding out the cast are Frances O’Connor (“The Missing”) as the single mom, with Madison Wolfe (“Zoo”) and newcomers Lauren Esposito, Patrick McAuley and Benjamin Haigh as her children; Maria Doyle Kennedy (“Orphan Black”); Simon Delaney (“Roy”); Franka Potente (“The Bridge”); and Simon McBurney (Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation).
The Conjuring 2 is set to haunt theaters on June 10th, 2016.
