The Conjuring Sequel and the Enfield Poltergeist?

Our friend Patrick Keller wrote this interesting piece last year when speculation was going on about which case The Conjuring sequel might focus on. They’re still trying to decide, but in the meantime, this is very good reading–as is pretty much all of the content at his blog, The Big Seance, if the paranormal interests you. There’s plenty of research invested in the case, plus the piece is packed with links and a 12-minute recording so fucking creepy (real or staged) that I am very, very glad I did not listen to it after dark.

Evidence of supposed levitation from the Enfield Poltergeist/Haunting case. One of the many photos of 11-year-old Janet Hodgson supposedly levitating.

There are rumors floating (no pun intended) around the internet that suggest the story line for the sequel of The Conjuring, now a major box office success, will involve the 1977 Enfield Poltergeist in England. This case involves two young sisters, mainly Janet Hodgson, who were really either great at psychokinesis (PK) or were tortured by an unseen spirit, perhaps the spirit of a man named Bill (who reportedly died in the same house years before), who apparently possessed and spoke through one of the girls. The video below includes the famous levitation photos from the case and audio of the creepy and traumatizing  supposed voice of Bill during investigations.

I’ve been reading rumors about a sequel for weeks now, and though nothing is official, apparently the film will again involve the characters of Ed and Lorraine Warren…

New Line gearing up for The Conjuring sequel

We’ll go for it, but probably only if James Wan is heavily involved (well, I doubt they’ll hire someone like Uwe Boll or Michael Bay  to REALLY fuck it up, but still, depends on if it’s someone we trust). Don’t miss the BRAND NEW trailer for The Conjuring at the end (though it has some featurette-like bits) with some fucking SCARY new footage (we’ll put it up very soon in a separate post, but if you cannot wait, it’s here too).

 

According to Variety, it looks like New Line is already eyeing a sequel to James Wan’s The Conjuring which should be a huge hit this weekend. New Line is currently exploring a potential franchise based around the Warrens’ investigations, which have involved cases that have already made their way to the big screen like The Amityville Horror and The Haunting in Connecticut.
