Coming to theaters and HBO Max on June 4th.
I'm done with this friggin "universe"
That trailer didn't do a whole lot for me. Probably 131 minutes long too.
Glad we can watch it at home, instead of a theater filled with annoying teen girls, screaming at every little noise
I enjoyed the first two Conjuring movies. It's the spin-offs that make me want to give up entirely on modern horror.
I haven't seen either since the theater. Might have to give them another look before this one.
Makes me wanna go listen to The Haunted Made Me Do it
The few spin-offs I saw were horrible. But the main movies were pretty good. The first one was some of the most fun I've had in a theater. While the first film was admittedly only a decent pastiche with a few creative scares, I will always defend it for two reasons. For one, it's a surprisingly effective film considering how little violence there is in it and that no one gets killed. Overall, there's really just something classy about the movie. The second defense is really just how much fun it was to watch in a theater. While I will admit that as a jaded, cynical old fart, I didn't find it that terrifying. There were honestly people in the audience that were absolutely traumatized. There was a guy in front of me that was actually scared to tears. And, I gotta say that was really impressive. So, yeah, the first films were really well crafted thrill rides.
But, knowing that James Wan isn't involved with this latest one, or at least only provides a story outline or something minimal, does diminish my enthusiasm and does lead me to expect that this will be more like the spin-offs.
Like others, after the slew of terrible spin-offs it's hard to be excited for this new one. I'll definitely watch it and the trailer looked OK but I'm not excited for it.
No James Wan is definitely working against it. I do enjoyed the first two movies.
I enjoy Annabelle 2 and 3, but the rest of the spin-offs are so forgettable, I forgot they even existed
I enjoy the Conjure-verse, including the spin-offs. (Except La Llorona, that one blew.) So I'll see this new one.
I also have some young cousins who are all about the Conjuring and It movies. So it should be a fun time in the theater.
This one is from the director of La Llorona.
I thought it was from the director of Annabelle Comes Home.
Pretty sure it's La Llorona?
Either way, it's from the director of some awful Conjuring spin-off.
Apparently the same case was depicted in a 1983 made-for-TV movie called The Demon Murder Case. Kevin Bacon, Andy Griffith, Cloris Leachman, Richard Masur, etc.
Just looked into it and you're right. So weird because I swear it was the director of Annabelle Comes Home for the longest time.
Well La Llorona was absolutely terrible outside of some cool visuals. So this does not bring confidence.
Yeah, that makes me worried. I also thought it was the director of Annabelle 3...
