This time round though beleaguered demon magnet Wilson and new addition Vera Farmiga are demonologists. Which is lucky, what with all of the demons:
A family encounters demons living among them in their New England farmhouse.
With a script from House of Wax writers Chad and Carey Haynes the film is based upon a real life account (I’m sure to the same extent that Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was) of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren and their visit to a family in the 70’s. Noted for their involvement in the obviously spurious Amityville Horror ‘incident’ (which conventional wisdom has it involved a lot of wine) the couple have bravely fought with ghosts, werewolf demons and gained unprecedented recordings of ‘knocking and rapping caused by a demon’, all of which sounds iron clad to me.
No doubt buoyed by the financial success of Insidious Wan was previously signed up to do a liopic (a biopic for the factually challenged for the facetious amongst you) of the couple but has instead settled on a specific case. It’s the old house + mostly invisible monster = money formula that Hollywood is raking over at a rate of knots currently. Even so, they’re always good for a few scares and Wilson and Farmiga are always good value so label me mildly interested if a little sceptical.
