The-Conjuring-PosterThe Conjuring is one of the more effective horror films of recent years and to celebrate its release on Blu-ray and DVD next Monday we have a look at one of the special features contained on the disc.

Based on a the true story of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren this film followed on nicely from director James Wan’s dabbling with the domestic horrorshows of Insidious and its recent sequel.

In this video the director talks about building and executing the perfect scare in a horror film, the use of classic horror ideas and mechanisms and the importance of sound –  so let’s listen shall we?
