After weeks of teasers and clips from the upcoming The Conjuring 2, we finally have the first official full trailer

We already stated this in our story about the new trailer for Lights Out, but we’re so excited about it that repetition hardly hurts; Horror guru James Wan is all over the horror movies of this summer.

First up, he’s got The Conjuring 2 coming out in June, and then in July it’s time for Lights Out which Wan produced based on the short film [by the same name] that took the internet by storm in 2013.

Honestly, we’ve been looking forward to The Conjuring 2 ever since we saw the original. The first The Conjuring received the most amazing reviews and really pulled in the ticket sales. A winning combination if you want to make a sequel, and James Wan is no stranger to horror franchises after giving us the Saw and Insidious franchises.

The plot:

Lorraine and Ed Warren travel to Enfield, North London, to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.

Of course, Lorraine and Ed Warren weren’t originally a part of that story, but it does seem like the perfect marriage of two real-life stories for The Conjuring 2.

The Warrens are still portrayed by the amazing Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring and the TV show Bates Motel) and Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring and Insidous), but instead of Lili Taylor, the mother of this new family is played by Frances O’Connor (A.I.) and also starring Franka Potente (Run, Lola, Run and The Bourne Identity).

The Conjuring 2 premieres June 10, 2016.

Watch the trailer below:

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
