The new YouTube trailer for the upcoming horror movie "The Conjuring" is here and at first glance, it appears to be the same old haunted house movie we've all seen before. You know, spirits and the psychic trying to track them down, weird faces in the mirror, whispery voices, screaming children. That sort of folderol.
But "The Conjuring" does have something going for it that most horror movies don't: A seriously great cast.
Just how good is the cast? Well, Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga, who knows a thing or two about horror thanks to her new hit TV series "Bates Motel," co-stars alongside Golden Globe nominee Patrick Wilson as a couple who travel around the country solving supernatural mysteries.
When they arrive at the creepy house owned by Golden Globe nominee Ron Livingston, though, they find something they never expected: An actual, legit haunting. Oh, wait, sorry — the trailer claims that it's actually not a haunting nor a possession but something even crazier and more terrifying. Like... a conjuring? Just a guess.
But whatever the case, this time around "Saw" and "Insidious" director James Wan has surrounded himself with enough top notch acting talent (including "The Twilight Saga's" Mackenzie Foy) to ensure that if this does turn out to be another paint-by-numbers horror flick, at least the painting will be done by master artists.
