The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist was scripted by Chad and Carey Hayes, the pair who penned the first film. And most exciting to horror fans, the sequel has successfully lured back director James Wan, who is currently in postproduction on his step outside the genre with the action-thriller Furious 7. More good news–though perhaps obvious–Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will return to reprise their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren. Now what about this Enfield Poltergeist The case began in the titular Northern suburb of London, England in 1977. There, divorced single mother Margaret Hodgson lived with her four children, who ranged in age from seven to 13. But their happy home life was turned on its head when bizarre phenomena began to occur. The Hodgson children began to complain that their beds shake in the night, a chest of drawers moves in the dark, and mysterious knocking sounds resound throughout the halls. Later, LEGOs would be seen soaring through the air. At first, Margaret believed her kids were making it up, or pitching LEGOs about themselves. But as things escalated, she couldn’t ignore that something strange was going on. This was not a case of a haunted home, as much as haunted children. Both of Hodgson’s daughters claimed to have been stalked by this poltergeist, tormented at school or when visiting with friends. Margaret began to fear that her eleven-year-old Janet was the key focus of this spirit’s attention. This made some skeptical that the girl was pulling an elaborate prank. But how do you explain Janet’s levitating above her bed? Rounding out the cast are Frances O’Connor (TV’s The Missing) as the single mom, with Madison Wolfe (TV’s Zoo) and newcomers Lauren Esposito, Patrick McAuley and Benjamin Haigh as her children; Maria Doyle Kennedy (TV’s Orphan Black); Simon Delaney (TV’s Roy); Franka Potente (TV’s The Bridge); and Simon McBurney (Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation). The screenplay is by Chad Hayes & Carey W. Hayes & James Wan and David Leslie Johnson, story by Chad Hayes & Carey W. Hayes & James Wan.
