The Reason The Owners Of The Conjuring Home Are Suing Warner Bros.
The house where The Conjuring was set has been inundated with fans since the film was released in 2013. And it's become rather annoying for the people who actually live there. So much so that they're suing plenty of people involved in the production.

This Is Why The Conjuring's Vera Farmiga And Patrick Wilson Aren't In Annabelle
While the characters do have very important ties to the titular doll, paranormal investigators Ed and Lorainne Warren, who were played by Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson in last year’s horror film, don’t actually make an appearance in Annabelle. But that wasn’t necessarily always going to be the case.

The Conjuring Spinoff Annabelle Introduces Itself In Long, Generic Teaser Trailer
The fact that anyone would ever want to own and display a doll that looks like a plastic whorechild is beyond me, and that’s just the kind of thing that makes me all the more wary of Warner Bros. and New Line’s upcoming horror Annabelle, a prequel spinoff of James Wan’s hugely successful haunted house flick The Conjuring.

The Conjuring's Annabelle Doll Is Getting A Spinoff Because That's How Hollywood Rolls
It’s already got a director in John R. Leonetti, a veteran cinematographer who worked on each of Wan’s films following Saw, though no screenwriter was named. Leonetti’s only other features were also follow-ups, 1997’s Mortal Kombat: Annihilation and 2006’s The Butterfly Effect 2. One has to assume/hope this Annabelle feature will rank higher than both of those two put together and sprinkled with "better movie dust."

The Conjuring Will Creep Onto Blu-ray And DVD In October
The movie’s too good to be spoiled further, relying on old school traits and camera tricks to create a movie that feels both modern and like a classic nod to some of the horror flicks of the past, with a little less blood than usual. You can check out the trailer, below.

The Conjuring Director James Wan, On Making A Classical Chiller With Way Less Blood
It's hard to imagine what modern horror movies would be like without James Wan, who released Saw in 2004 and ushered in an entire new era of bloody, in-your-face horror. But for his next film, Wan isn't breaking ground on new genres or even getting all that bloody-- he's looking directly toward the past. Telling the story of Ed and Lorraine Warren, the real-life pair of paranormal investigators who hunted down dozens of ghosts and other spooky occurrences in the 70s

New Trailer For The Conjuring Wants To Make Sure You Know It's Based On A True Story
The concept of "Based on a True Story" is a staple of the horror genre. Whether it's completely bogus (like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) or kinda-sorta for real (like The Amityville Horror), there's something about a horror film's events happening in reality that adds a certain extra level of creepiness.

The Conjuring's New Trailer Is A Ghost Overdose

One in particular, Wan warned, is a "really bad" witch.

James Wan's next horror film is still in pre-production, yet it has already managed to go through two titles.
