The famed demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren are making their return to Netflix! Coming to the streaming platform in February is the horror movie The Conjuring, and its sequel, The Conjuring 2.
What is The Conjuring about?
The Conjuring is a paranormal horror franchise fictionalizing the real-life investigations of Ed and Lorraine Warren.
Created by director James Wan (Saw, Insidious), The Conjuring’s cinematic universe spans seven feature-length movies and has two upcoming ones — The Conjuring 3 and The Crooked Man.
The first Conjuring movie premiered in 2013 and it follows the Perron family who has five daughters and a dog. After a series of strange occurrences, the family discovers that their farmhouse is being haunted by an evil entity named Bathsheba.
The entity previously lived on their land and had committed numerous unspeakable horrors before committing suicide. Ever since there has been a plethora of seedy activity by those who chose to live on the land.
A majority of The Conjuring movies received a positive reception from critics and premiered as a blockbuster hit, garnering high sales and global popularity.
Characters and demons from the movies often reappear in the subsequent ones, making it a continuous storyline. While each movie has a resolved ending— good or bad, these reoccurring appearances never fail to keep the audience on their toes.
The investigators have appeared in a large number of movies. Ed Warren has been portrayed five times and Lorainne Warren has been portrayed four times. The characters are played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga and both are returning for the upcoming movie, The Conjuring 3.
