“On my other films, it was comforting to tell myself those things weren’t real, I’d just made them up. But for The Conjuring, I didn’t have that luxury.”
Director James Wan (Saw, Insidious) described his experience while working on The Conjuring as being almost too real. Doesn't that sound familiar? Haven't we all heard about the strange happenings surrounding the set and the cast of such classics as The Poltergeist, The Omen, and The Exorcist?
I'm starting to notice a trend here. Work on a horror film, and expect some real life horrors to happen right in front of your eyes. Unfortunately, the cast and crew of The Conjuring was no different, as they too began to experience creepy occurrences left and right.
Here is a list of eerie happenings that happened to the director, the screenwriters, the actors, and so forth. Warning: You will not want to ever step foot on set of a scary film. Or perhaps if you're into this kind of thing, you're already running to a haunted house with a camera.
