Cast Claim Conjuring 2 Shoot Plagued by Paranormal Activity

Conjuring 2’s Patrick Wilson Claims Horror Film’s Set Was Plagued by Paranormal Activity, Blessed by Priest


It seems The Conjuring 2 movie set is following in the footsteps of its horror movie predecessors The Exorcist and Poltergeist by developing a rash of mysterious paranormal activity on set. According to the actors in the second installation of the hit horror series that brings the kinda-sorta “true life” cases of demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren to life, The Conjuring 2 was having a bit of a ghost problem during filming.


Patrick Wilson, who plays the on-screen version of the late ghost buster Ed Warren, told reporters that the set was plagued by some pretty bizarre paranormal activity, the most compelling of which included heavy drapes that were filmed shaking violently on more than one occasion.


“It was a huge curtain that went from the floor to the ceiling, which was just sort of waving violently and there was no door open or no fan on; no nothing,” the star revealed to WENN. “One of the painters goes behind it and couldn’t figure out where the movement was coming from. It went on for like, a minute.

Wilson also revealed that before the film began shooting, a priest was called to bless the set in order to remove any lingering spirits. While it certainly seems like the exorcism didn’t work, a few extra ghosts in James Wan’s horror sequel might not have been a bad thing, seeing as how The Conjuring 2 crushed its box office competition with a $40.4 million debut weekend.

No it didn’t. This film is entirely a work of fiction based on other peoples work and investigation. The Warrens did nothing on this casem

The Priest was probably the cause of it!

After the book I read on this haunting, I don’t know why they would want to run the risk of bringing the entity back for good…The book was admittedly,(said the author) repetitive, and at times boring, but that’s how it really is while they do an investigation….i’ll be there opening day.

I saw the movie Saturday June 11th. I give it a thumbs up. I jumped out of my seat several times. I don’t scare that easy. The last time a movie did that to me is when I saw Alien.

Wow, curtains shaking on a set likely filled with graphic and special effect artists, professional stage staff, and people trained to make the unreal seem real. SO WEIRD.

Hate to be a skeptic (no fun) but it sounds like a practical joke by one (or more) of the crew members. And it seems like they really didn’t investigate, other than a a meddling painter looking behind the curtains. Scooby Doo & crew could do a better job than that.

I hope we get to see this video. Maybe in the DVD/BR extras??

Another one film plagged by paranormal activity is Poltergeist (2015) After I watch it in my room I was hearing stuff all the time

I hate when people make jokes about hauntings, u should pray that your lucky enough to not ever have the experience happen to you, or yours then id like to hear your comments
