I realize that when it comes to horror films, I’m already a skittish person, but the trailer for new horror film “The Conjuring” is the most thrilling trailer I’ve seen in a long while. I actually had to cover my eyes for parts of it! The atmosphere is overbearingly scary to me; it’s just the right kind of horror film that will make you leave the lights on. I don’t think many horror films do that for a lot of people anymore.

You can check out the trailer below the post. If you don’t think it’s as scary as I’ve made it out to be, let me know in the comments section. If you think it is as scary as I’ve said it is (or scarier), then talk about that, too.

Here’s the official synopsis of “The Conjuring:”

“Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story, “The Conjuring” tells the horrifying tale of how world renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse.

Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.

From New Line Cinema comes a feature film drawn from the case files of married demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. “The Conjuring” stars Academy Award® nominee Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air,” “Orphan”) and Patrick Wilson (“Young Adult,” “Prometheus”) as the Warrens, and Ron Livingston (HBO’s “Band of Brothers”) and Lili Taylor (“Public Enemies”) as Roger and Carolyn Perron, residents of the house.

Joey King (“Crazy, Stupid, Love”), Shanley Caswell (“Detention”), Haley McFarland (TV’s “Lie to Me”), Mackenzie Foy (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”) and newcomer Kyla Deaver play the Perrons’ five daughters, and Sterling Jerins (upcoming “World War Z”) is the Warrens’ little girl, Judy.”

“The Conjuring” was directed by James Wan (“Saw,” “Insidious”) and the screenplay is by Chad Hayes and Carey W. Hayes (“The Reaping”). The film will be in theaters July 19.
