James Wan on bringing respect back to studio horror in new Conjuring 2 featurette

Writer/director James Wan (Saw, The Conjuring, Dead Silence) has been causing major heart palpitations in multiplexes for over a decade, and his latest experiment in terror, The Conjuring 2, promises more clinical chills. This time, Wan tackles the notorious real-life Enfield Poltergeist event, in which two adolescent sisters were repeatedly tormented by malevolent spirits inside their Enfield, England, home from 1977-1979.

Here's the official synopsis:

The supernatural thriller brings to the screen another real case from the files of renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. Reprising their roles, Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson star as Lorraine and Ed Warren, who, in one of their most terrifying paranormal investigations, travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.

Check out a new behind-the-scenes featurette with Wan offering up his recipe for crafting a good scare and his sincere desire to bring respect back to studio horror films.   Also starring Frances O'Connor, David Thewlis, Franke Potente and Madison Wolfe, The Conjuring 2 invades U.S. theaters on June 9.

Have a peek and tell us if you think he'll deliver on his promise when the ghosts come out to play next week.
