New “THE CONJURING” trailer lets the real Perron family tell their story

James Wan’s fantastic upcoming haunter THE CONJURING is based on a true story, unearthed from the cases of paranormal investigators and demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, and a memoir of the account from the family’s eldest daughter Andrea Perron. This third trailer for the film presents new footage alongside Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor’s real-life counterparts, Roger and Carolyn Perron and their five daughters as they recount the experience.

In a secluded farmhouse in Rhode Island, Roger and Carolyn Perron and their daughters encountered a vicious, violent entity and the years worth of negative energy its deeds had accrued and encouraged. The family sought the help of Ed and Lorraine Warren and some 42 years later, its resulted in a properly frightening, visceral film from James Wan (INSIDIOUS, SAW).

For more on THE CONJURING, you can find my glowing review here. If you’re at all curious about the real life events, Andrea Perron’s book HOUSE OF DARKNESS HOUSE OF LIGHT is widely available on Amazon and such.
