Man Dies While Watching The Conjuring 2, Viewers Report Hauntings

Man Dies While Watching The Conjuring 2, Viewers Report Ghosts Following Them Home From Theater


If you went to see The Conjuring 2 in theaters this weekend and survived, you should count yourself lucky. Viewers of James Wan’s horror sequel aren’t just reporting ghosts following them home from the theater, some of them are dying during the film’s climax.

On Tuesday, a 65-year-old man collapsed during the climax of The Conjuring 2, during which famed demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren battle the demonic nun Valak. The man had complained of chest pains during the climactic scene, only to lose consciousness in his seat. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Sure, it could be a coincidence, but here’s the weird part: hospital employees claim they have no idea what happened to the man’s body.


Hospital staff told the man’s theater companion to escort the body to a local medical college hospital for postmortem, only for him to disappear with the corpse.

The odd death is just the latest in a string of strange events surrounding the release of The Conjuring 2, the most common of which are claims that viewers have left the theater only to return to haunted homes.

On Jun 10, one man claimed that he’d returned from a screening of the film only to discover that a fresh cross had manifested across his hotel bathroom’s mirror.

“We came back to the hotel room at about 2:30am,” he posted to Facebook. “As we were too beat, we decided to nap first. At about 2:45am, Legacy Voronia decided to brush her teeth before continuing her sleep. After brushing her teeth, she came out of the toilet asking me if I pranked her with a cross drawn on the mirror in the toilet. I was puzzled, as I was resting on the bed all the while and I thought she was trying to prank me. We then realized that we were not pulling pranks at each other. I then went to the toilet to check out the cross… It was freshly drawn, as I could see water creeping down on one side of the cross, and the stain is still fresh. I then asked her how that could be me when she was the one standing in front of the mirror all the time. Furthermore, if I were to do that, she would not have miss my presence.”

The couple claim that they fled the room and immediately requested a change with the front desk. When they returned for their things the following morning, the smudged cross had disappeared.

When the first film premiered in theaters back in 2013, Warner Bros. made news for employing real-life priests to bless freaked-out audiences during the screenings. Sounds like a few exorcisms might have been a good idea this time around as well.

If you’re planning on catching The Conjuring 2 in theaters this weekend, you might want to bring a crucifix with you just in case.

      The demon portrayed in the movie (valak) looks nothing like the one portrayed in the dictionarie infernal, it looks more like the engineers from the movie Prometheus!

    We watched last Saturday. It was scary but none the less I loved every minute of it. We came home and straight to sleep. Nothing happened other then having a weird scary dream with the nun Valek.

    06/18/2016 at 1:50 PM

    I went and saw the movie with a friend and it made me feel nauseous through the whole movie, so being a huge Christian I prayed in the name of Jesus that no demons were to be in or around my body and since then I stopped feeling nauseous and could continue watching the movie. It might just be a movie, but demons are real people and they are not to be played with

    • Stephanie

      06/18/2016 at 10:40 PM

      Arika. I am a christian too and I regret watching this movie. I felt INCREDIBLY nauseous. I thought I was going to throw up, shortly after I prayed with my boyfriend and asked the LORD to forgive me. I really didn’t think that the movie would be that scary. It was really strong. I have never been afraid of a scary movie. I was literally shaking in my seat, but I know the LORD is good and I too rebuked demons and fear.

      Its not. I refuse to see this one but after watching the first conjuring in my home, very strange and negative stuff began to happen. My Mom kept hearing growlinf in her face, I heard something heavy breath in my face at night, we heard things drop randomly in our kitchen, i kept fucking up at work constantly and never did before so my Managers were confused. I literally had to sage/bless my house. Im guessing this could have come from the chanting they did in the first scene of the movie..after all the name is the CONJURING. You people find this entertainment, but the day you deal with a real demon your going to shit your whitey tighteys

    Demons are not people, but they are beings of pure intelligence–fallen angels–and are totally selfish and hate God and those He gave the possibility of being with Him in such a special way (adopted into His family) in the worst way.

    As I left the theatre I could see my breath. It was not cold at all. I kept breathing out my mouth and saw white mist each time, indoors, in the hall before getting to the lobby. A day later a heavy glass spice jar flew horizontally straight for 3 feet, hesitated a few seconds and then dropped to the floor. I laughed and shrugged off. Not afraid. It was just a bit unnerving.

    IT IS REAL!!!! As I walked into the theater I felt this chilling, dark sensation creep all over my body. I knew something was not right, but I have faith in the Lord God Almighty and baby Jesus. My youngin started acting a damn fool and projectile vomiting on the people in front of us. Turned out he was possessed by the devil himself. I shit you not. I had to perform an exorcism in the middle of the movie. I truly saw a light shine down from above and the hand of baby Jesus touch my little boy. All is well in the hood after that moment. I thank God everyday for his many blessings and for saving lil Bobbert.

    Saw it, I’m a jumpy person and I had to close my eyes in some scenes haha. I hadn’t been to the movies for years so I wasn’t used to the loud volume which is what made the BOO! type scenes scary for me, plus the nun was creepy, that spiritual stuff creeps me out haha. I got a stomach ache hours after the movie and nausea, probably due to eating 600 calories of popcorn and chocolate. I have noticed myself causing a bit of hysteria for myself if I’m alone at night, like in the shower I don’t wanna close my eyes and imagine that stupid demon nun. But I haven’t seen a horror movie for ages and like I said, spiritual/demonic ones are my weakness. But I only felt creeped out after reading silly stories (most probably made up) about what happened to people after they saw the movie. I didn’t think if the movie or the nun until I read that garbage.

    Ed Warren was a more modern version of the spiritualists of the 1920s. They put on shows to make money. This is a movie, pure fiction. It’s actually pretty weak at the end because it’s got all but the pea soup spewing out of her. It’s basically a modern retelling of the exorcist without the priests. Very well built up from the start, but turns into just another exorcism movie. Not that interesting.

    • Lacey

      06/20/2016 at 11:55 AM

      Thanks for the review. Exorcism movies are hard for me to take seriously, especially when they are over the top with visual effects and/or have a heavy religious agenda. I’ve been interested in the Enfield case but think I’ll try to find another version of the story, one without rogue demons in nun costumes.

    • Crystal Wilson

      06/22/2016 at 3:41 PM

      Wasn’t there a movie on Hulu made some years ago called the Enfield Haunting? I watched it a couple years ago. They then claimed it was based in truth also.

    I came home and was laying in bed a few hours after the movie. Suddenly this feeling came over me like my blood was boiling and I was going to pass out and I had severe chest pain. I told my husband something wasn’t right. I ran to the bathroom because I felt like I was going to be sick and he followed me to make sure I was okay. We heard our dog start barking in the other room, which was weird, because she was muzzled. We went back to the bed and she chewed through her muzzle and was going crazy barking at nothing. We put another muzzle on her to try and get some sleep, and then went back to the bathroom because I was still feeling nauseous. In less than 30 seconds later, she had chewed through the second muzzle. It was so fast we were like how the hell could she do That? It was too fast. We took a look at the muzzles and it looked as though they had been cut off her face, not chewed through. We got back in bed and watched some tv to fall asleep, only to immediately have a cockroach crawl out from behind the tv up the wall to the ceiling. We are clean people and have never had pests. I felt like death, it was awful and the puppy could sense it too.

    When a movie is based on a true story, it is embellished a lot. You can take a story of some kid eating ice cream then dropping it on the sidewalk. The movie version of that true story would end up with an Earthquake following the ice cream hitting the sidewalk because it was made from dark matter…etc. The kid DID drop the ice cream after all, so that is true!

    Since I read Guy Lyon Playfair’s book about this years ago & I don’t remember any demon nuns in it, I wonder, has anyone asked Mr. Playfair about what he thinks of this film, another alleged “true story” that probably isn’t true at all? Why are humans so damn credulous?

    It wasn’t bad, I’d give it a 7/10. The nun thing was bit ridiculous but still a decent movie. About as scary as Amityville 3 IMO, nothing special happened, watched alone. I did need some water since it was like 90 degrees and after over indulging needed to take a piss lol

    I downloaded a bootleg copy of the movie and my computer stared acting really strange so I ran my antivirus software and it told me I had the demon virus!
    I knew it had to do with the Conjuring so I ran to the dining room where we keep a vial of holy water. I immediately started to throw the holy water on my computer and it started to hiss and spark and eventually spit out flames. That was when I knew the demon was angry, I kept throwing water and yelling “BE GONE DEMON!” it was then all the lights went out in the house…..I had blown a breaker the fire marshal later told me, caused by some sort of electrical fire it caused a small fire in the fuse box and I now have to remodel the basement. I guess the moral of the story is don’t download boot leg films….because they have demons in them.

    I thought the ending actually spoiled what had been a pretty well made horror. Good atmosphere etc all spoiled by your run of the mill “leave me alone” horror ending.
