Frances O’Connor has joined the cast of the upcoming horror sequel The Conjuring 2. She is the star of television shows Mr Selfridge and The Missing and will join Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, who reprise their roles as paranormal investigators The Warrens.
Directed by James Wan – director of the first film, too – the sequel is to be based on the true events surrounding the Enfield poltergeist. The case concerned a family who reported a demonic presence in their home after their children complained of moving furniture in their bedrooms. Apparently, the ‘poltergeist’ was concerned with their daughter and not the house itself. It sounds like it’s going to be a blend of Insidious and Poltergeist, don’t you think? If it has the same level of effective scares as the first film, then I’m more than happy!
Be sure to watch The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist when it haunts cinemas from 10th June 2016.
