Last year, Facebook, YouTube and a number of different platforms introduced a new interactive 360 video, which allows users to see much more than the average video will allow. This technology kicked off with a sneak peek from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We've also seen movies such as Jurassic World and HBO's hit TV series Game of Thrones use the technology as well. Today we have yet another 360 video that takes you deeper inside the upcoming horror sequel The Conjuring 2.
This video, which debuted on the Warner Bros. YouTube page, is introduced by director James Wan, which allows users to explore the Hodgson house from this horror sequel, and experience the true terror of the Enfield haunting in 360 video. This video doesn't include any actual footage from The Conjuring 2, but it will help you get into the right mindset before this sequel hits theaters next month. For those reading this on a mobile device, viewing 360 content requires the use of the Facebook or YouTube Mobile Apps and does not work with mobile browsers.
Director James Wan brings this supernatural thriller to the screen with another real case from the files of renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. Reprising their roles, Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson star as Lorraine and Ed Warren, who, in one of their most terrifying paranormal investigations, travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits. This movie is based on the paranormal activity that took place between the years 1977 and 1979, at the Hodgson house in Brimsdown, Enfield, England, which is said to be the most documented case of paranormal activity in history.
The supporting cast includes Frances O'Connor, Shannon Kook-Chun, Jennifer Collins, Madison Wolfe, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Simon Delaney and Franka Potente. The Conjuring 2 is set to arrive in theaters nationwide June 10, 2016. The thriller will go up against Universal's Warcraft and Lionsgate's Now You See Me 2 in just a few short weeks. James Wan directs from a script by The Conjuring writers Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes.
Last year, a report surfaced that this movie may also tie in with another famous case that the Warren's investigated, the Amityville Horror. Ed and Lorraine Warren conducted an investigation of the house, 20 days after the Lutz family left in 1974, three years before the Enfield haunting, on the other side of the world from the Hodgson house in Long Island, New York. While we wait for more on The Conjuring 2, check out this new 360 video to learn more about the Hodgson House in this sequel.
