A Priest Blessed The Set on The First Day of Shooting For THE CONJURING 2
Director James Wan has started production on The Conjuring 2, and he's released a series of new photos from the set. One of them features a priest blessing the set of the film on the first day of shooting. I guess they don't want evil spirits latching onto the set of a movie that deals with the horrors of the supernatural realm.
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprise their roles as real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. The movie also stars Frances O’Connor as a mother who turns to the Warrens in desperation after her daughter experiences a haunting.
The sequel will be based on The Enfield Poltergeist and I found a detailed account of what this story entailed on a website called The Committee of Skeptical Inquiry.
"In August 1977, a series of disturbances that were soon characterized as a case of poltergeist phenomena or even demonic possession began in Enfield, a northern suburb of London. The subject of a forthcoming movie, the occurrences, including the actions of an eleven-year-old girl who repeatedly 'levitated' above her bed, “held the nation spellbound” for over a year, according to Britain’s Daily Mail; 'no explanation other than the paranormal has ever been convincingly put forward'"
