In a creepy old house, horror awaits in the oldest of America’s regions. In New England there lies the quiet and vengeful spirits who await to terrorize the adventurous. With the evil superstitions that have crept into the consciousness of generations of residents, stretching though out the land like a fetid mold, horror is often incited.
It in no wonder that writers such as Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe, and H.P. Lovecraft have created such terrors while residing in this region as they absorb the threatening atmosphere. Now director James Wan will choose this as his next spot for his next film, “The Conjuring.”
Wan in his burgeoning career has directed a couple of pieces of horror that still resonate with today’s culture. Those works being “Insidious” and the first of the “Saw” movies which produced an ad nauseum amount of sequels.
“The Conjuring” is set in the 1970s and stars Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor as the couple who hire assistance in dealing with forces from other realms that reside in their farmhouse. It feels like their will have similarities to another haunted house tale, “The Amityville Horror.” Also coming along are actors Patrick Wilson and Vera Farminga who are the paranormal investigators that the couple reaches out to.
It’s ironic how his movies are adverse to his personality having been once quoted on IMDB.com as saying, “Not many people realize this, but I’m a really squeamish guy.” But, even if that maybe the case, he still continues to work on them with a firm belief in the supernatural.
