1 Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on the true life story, The Conjuring tells the tale of how world renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most horrifying case of their lives. From New Line Cinema comes a feature film drawn from the case files of married demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. The Conjuring stars Academy Award nominee Vera Farmiga ( Up in the Air, TV s Bates Motel ) and Patrick Wilson ( Insidious, ) as the Warrens, and Ron Livingston ( The Odd Life of Timothy Green ) and Lili Taylor (TV s Hemlock Grove ) as Roger and Carolyn Perron, residents of the house. Joey King, Shanley Caswell, Hayley McFarland, Mackenzie Foy and newcomer Kyla Deaver play the Perrons five daughters, and Sterling Jerins is the Warrens little girl, Judy. Rounding out the cast are Marion Guyot as Judy s grandmother; Steve Coulter as Father Gordan; Shannon Kook as the Warren s investigative assistant, Drew; and John Brotherton as the local law enforcement official skeptical of the Perron s claims and the Warrens tactics. James Wan ( Saw, Insidious ) directs from a screenplay by Chad Hayes & Carey W. Hayes ( The Reaping ). The film is produced by Tony DeRosa-Grund, Peter Safran and Rob Cowan, with Walter Hamada and Dave Neustadter serving as executive producers. Reuniting with the director are members of his Insidious creative team, director of photography John R. Leonetti, editor Kirk Morri, costume designer Kristin M. Burke, composer Joseph Bishara and his Saw production designer, Julie Berghoff. New Line Cinema presents a Safran Company / Evergreen Media Group Production of a James Wan Film, The Conjuring. Opening July 19, 2013, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. It has been rated R for sequences of disturbing violence and terror. theconjuring-movie.com For downloadable general press information, please visit: https://mediapass.warnerbros.com/ 1

2 ABOUT THE PRODUCTION INFESTATION ED WARREN The three stages of demonic activity: Infestation Whispering, footsteps, the feeling of another presence, which grows into the second stage, Oppression The victim is targeted by an external force... it crushes their will and leads to the third and final stage Possession. Truth is stranger than fiction and a lot more frightening. No one knew that better than Ed Warren and his clairvoyant wife, Lorraine, whose lifelong personal experiences combating inhuman forces garnered them respect in the field of demonology long before the immense popularity of the paranormal on the screen. And long before Ed and Lorraine tackled the foreboding menace in a little place called Amityville, they encountered the most perilous evil even they would ever come up against. James Wan, who had known of the couple s work prior to taking the directing reins of The Conjuring, relates, I've always been a big fan of the Warrens. I really admire them. They pioneered the modern-day style of ghost hunting with technical equipment, capturing evidence on film and audiotape. Since they've inspired so many stories, books and films, it was cool to actually make a movie where who they are is as much the focus as the family s home they are investigating. The film reveals the real horrors lurking within a secluded centuries-old farmhouse in the seemingly peaceful countryside of Harrisville, Rhode Island, bought in 1970 by Carolyn and Roger Perron. However, the couple and their five daughters soon find themselves directly in the path of extreme, yet indefinable, danger. When Ed and Lorraine meet the family and the unnatural enemy waging war against them, they know they are in for the battle of their career...and lives. Taking on the role of the renowned demonologist, Patrick Wilson was intrigued by the idea of playing a real person in a grave conflict with powers beyond most people s 2

3 comprehension. Wilson observes, Ed Warren was a guy whose whole life was geared around being dangerously close to the dark side because he genuinely wanted to help people. He knew the terror they were experiencing could happen to anyone, including them the ones there to help. Vera Farmiga stars alongside Wilson as Ed s loving wife and preternaturally gifted partner Lorraine, who is swept along with her husband into the violent path of the malevolent presence. She offers, Stories are like train tickets. Someone hands you a pass to somewhere, and you go. This was an interesting psychic space to explore. Even though it put me in a cold sweat and panic, I had the compelling need to investigate this story, like Lorraine and Ed investigated the Perrons. Producer Peter Safran believes the case was seminal for the Warrens because they wanted not only to safeguard the Perron children, but their own young daughter, Judy. He conveys, I think what they went through with those girls really laid the groundwork for their life path, including Amityville and beyond. I was particularly drawn to the events because I also have a daughter, and I can't even think of a limit to what I would do to protect her. Ironically, the Perrons had moved to the country to raise their children in a safe environment, only to put them in harm s way. Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor star as Roger and Carolyn Perron, whose encounter with the paranormal, shared with the Warrens, changes their family forever. Livingston notes, Getting away is what they d always wanted, but isolation can be very scary, too. They had to be wondering is this the beginning of our new life or the beginning of the end? And is God actually looking out for us here or are we on our own? When bad things go down, I think people relate to those questions on a visceral level, and a lot of the answers can be unsettling. I m torn about the spirit world, Taylor acknowledges. There are times I wonder if a strange experience I had is something more than that. It s hard to strip away everything and be totally open to it. But the exorcism tapes I ve seen and heard are persuasive. And terrifying. Producer Rob Cowan comments, Everybody identifies with the notion that something s under your bed or in the closet, but this really happened, so it makes it all the more chilling. Screenwriters Chad Hayes and Carey W. Hayes had a unique take telling the story via the tandem points of view of the Warrens and the Perrons. Chad remarks, What we loved about writing this script is the contrast between two couples: there are the Warrens, who are devout Catholics and respected demonologists, and the Perrons, who aren t at all religious. And then their lives collide. Who fixes what and how does it get fixed? 3

4 These strangers crossed paths over some very ugly entities, Carey adds. They took a very daunting journey, and going through their steps, we just got hooked. It became an obsession. Wan remembers, When I read the script, I said, Wow, this is great, here is a chance to do something different. During the project s development, Wan and the Hayes brothers went through the Warrens files some 4,000 cases. We found a lot of great material, says Wan. My goal was to incorporate some of the wildest things they'd encountered in their lifetime, yet still stay true to this particular family s story. We drew a lot of inspiration from the Perrons recollections as well. I thought it was even more frightening to show the scares through the eyes of the pros along with the perspective of this family that has no inkling of the supernatural world. We wanted to honor both families, says Cowan, so it was really rewarding when they said we d achieved a genuine level of accuracy. Lorraine Warren, now in her eighties, still recalls all too well the physical environment of the real house where a sinister multitude had begun an infestation all those years ago. She attests, When I walked inside, I immediately knew it was haunted. There s a feeling that comes over you, almost like a veil, it draws your energy because the entity needs it in order to manifest; the only way to get that energy is from you. It was really heavy in that house and being on the set brought all that back. It was uncanny. I m very fond of James. He wanted to get everything right, and I m excited about the film. During the Hayes many long phone conversations with Lorraine, there was usually some sort of seemingly otherworldly interruption in the form of sounds and static, often completely causing the line to go dead. Carey recounts that when they asked if it was common, Lorraine would reply, Oh, yes, honey, dark, light that's a constant battle, you know? Chad elaborates, "She told us, We're about to expose the dark side of the dark side, and it doesn t want good to win. I'm surprised that there isn't a lot more interference. Roger Perron and his daughters had the opportunity to visit the set and agree that it stirred intense memories, starting with the fateful day they moved to the farm. Andrea, the eldest, remarks, I was absolutely confident that James, the cast and the whole team authentically captured the essence of that house and what happened to us, which is no small feat. All that we hoped for has come to fruition. It is as though they had a key to our emotions, releasing what we experienced, recreating it on screen. In fact, it was all too real for Carolyn, the wife and mother who lived through the terror more than three decades ago. She would not attend filming for that very reason, admitting, I 4

5 didn t go, just like I never, ever went back to the farm. I didn t want the memories or the thing that so threatened me in the house to be able to touch me. However, keeping her distance was perhaps not enough to protect her. One afternoon, while her family was at the location set that mirrored the feel of their former residence, an eerie and inexplicable wind whipped up to encircle them, though the trees remained perfectly still. As technicians steadied the gear there in North Carolina, miles away in Atlanta, Carolyn experienced a presence which she hadn t felt in 30 years suddenly tripping and suffering injuries that put her in the hospital. Shortly thereafter, the cast and crew were evacuated from their hotel because a fire broke out. Almost no one believes these are random coincidences. Wan also experienced a strange incident while ing about the script late one night. It began with his puppy growling at a corner of his office. There was nothing there, he recounts. Then she did something even creepier, she started tracking whatever she was staring at, which was nothing, across the room, without missing a beat. I was freaked out.and it was at that very moment I knew that the story had gotten into my psyche and was really affecting me in a big way. The director continues, Most people will, at some point, relate that they know someone who has, or that they themselves have, experienced something paranormal. 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. OPPRESSION CAROLYN PERRON There s something horrible happening in my house. I have five daughters who are scared to death At first, the strange occurrences at the Perron house seem like nothing more than unrelated events for the new residents. But by the time Carolyn Perron seeks paranormal specialists Ed and Lorraine Warren out after one of their lectures at a local college, the subtle disturbances that suggest a sinister infestation in her home have taken on a more destructive role. And once the Warrens observe the unusual activity, it is clear to them that the poltergeists co-existing on the Perron property have progressed to oppression: they are now targeting the family and invading their days and nights. 5

6 Safran affirms that the script had a similar effect. The first time I read it I loved it, but I discovered that I couldn't read the script at night, I literally couldn t sleep. I had to read it first thing in the morning, because I needed the whole day to pass for it to dissipate. When we started sending the script out, so many people had the exact same reaction they wished they had not read it at night. Vera Farmiga, who portrays Lorraine Warren, admits she was one of those people. I read it in fits and spurts, because it brought on overwhelming feelings: terror, awe, shock. I didn't ever want to read it at home. I figured the safest thing for me would be to read it somewhere else during the day. But safety was elusive. During one of her reading excursions, Farmiga reveals, I opened my laptop and the screen had these five claw marks scratched across it. I don't know how to explain it. I do know I hadn't dropped the computer, my children hadn't stepped on it so I gingerly closed it, put it away and then my brain just went berserk. Farmiga says the research process was equally disquieting but intriguing. She read numerous books on the occult and watched footage of Warren lectures before ever meeting Lorraine. The actress found Lorraine s work with every denomination from evangelical pastors and Jewish rabbis to Indian chiefs and shamans fascinating and her unwavering purpose inspiring. Lorraine has a very concrete concept of God, her Catholicism is her toolbox and her shield, Farmiga explains. The first thing you realize is she believes that this ability of discernment is a God-given gift. And if you don't use it, he ll take it away. So this is not an occupation, it's not a job. This is a vocation, a calling. The balance between taking care of herself and Ed and Judy, and taking care of everybody else making sure that they had peace of mind when her own mind wasn't always at peace was challenging for her and challenging for me to delve into. Farmiga adds that, for her, it went beyond the singular personae of Lorraine, noting, I found the partnership of Ed and Lorraine exquisite. They were a dynamic duo; I just loved how they complemented each other her sensitivity and empathy, his street smarts and matter-offact approach. They had a very great and unique love, and a respect for one another, and it resonates. Wan remarks, Lorraine deals with this nebulous world of death and the afterlife, but, she's full of life and that's so amazing. I really wanted someone that could do her justice. Not only is Vera a remarkable actress, but she wanted to honor Lorraine as much as I did, and that is truly reflected in her performance. 6

7 Ed and Lorraine came from a place of integrity and so does James, says Farmiga. That was evident in every aspect of his approach to their story. Embodying the role of Ed Warren, Patrick Wilson observes, Lorraine is such an interesting person, and Vera picked up her little eccentricities. It was exciting to watch and to play off of. Farmiga has equal praise for her on-screen husband. I adore Patrick, Farmiga states. He was one of the deciding factors. If Patrick was going to be by my side, I was in. Lorraine was also an important link to her husband for Wilson, who unfortunately never had the chance to meet Ed, who passed away in Wilson was able to gain invaluable insights and stories from Lorraine, which added dimension to the Warren footage and archives he studied. Wilson was as drawn to Ed and Lorraine s vibrant relationship and unorthodox calling as Farmiga. "They were soul mates, he describes. They also shared a passion to figure out what the disruptive energy was in a given situation, whether good or bad. Wan relates, Lorraine says that when things got really terrifying and unbearable, the crutch that she leaned on was Ed. That's very romantic and in a lot of ways, Patrick's version of Ed is a romanticized one, which I felt was a pretty interesting way to approach it. Ed was also versed in the religious aspects of demonology and, as a result, was eminently well respected by clergy. Wilson asserts, Ed believed that there are wonderful, great spirits in the world and some very evil ones that have been around for thousands of years, and he was going to do the best he could with his wife to fight them and to help people. Ed honestly believed it through and through, so I had to believe that through and through to play him. Ed knows that each and every time Lorraine opens herself to interpret the corps of darkness, she is exposing herself to more than physical harm; she s in danger of losing a little piece of herself. We see that Ed has this great balance of charm and lightness and humor, but then can go into protective mode. He ll stop at nothing to defend his wife and his family, Wilson says. I certainly can relate to that, so it was easy to tap into that side of the character. In the film, even though Ed is aware of the potential danger to his wife, both he and Lorraine also realize the gravity of the Perrons dire situation and agree to take on the case. Lili Taylor portrays Carolyn Perron, the down-to-earth mom who discovers that her family s new start in a new home instead leaves them shrouded by the house s bleak history. Taylor offers, Raising five kids is a lot of work and my character is working hard at it. Carolyn s doing a good job. She s got great girls, and their safety and health and well-being 7

8 mean everything to her. She was hoping for something nice and slow, a sweet, rural life, by moving to the farm, which is not at all what they get. What they do get is perpetually cold temperatures, objects manipulated by something surreptitious and unseen, ethereal whisperings and eerie sightings. Taylor had faith in Wan s fresh take on the subject matter, saying, I knew James was an expert in this genre, and his approach to the demonic realm was unlike anything I d seen. Aside from being a fan of Wan s, Taylor thought the script was very good and very scary, with rich levels. The story is constructed so well, I liked the strong, intertwined relationships. The relationship with her on-screen family proved to be equally robust. When the producers dropped them all off at a restaurant for lunch and to shoot family photos, which take on greater importance as the film progresses, Taylor says, From the start there was a total flow. There was no working to make conversation, it just happened naturally. That's really rare for seven personalities to instantly coalesce like that, so we were lucky. Even so, Taylor admits the mental terrain was sometimes as grueling as the physical demands of the role. I love the genre, but the psychological aspect of thrillers is hard to do and this was extremely intense and primal. For some of the more treacherous sequences, Taylor pronounces, I realized I wouldn t be able to get through it without blowing my vocal chords if I didn t learn how to scream from a very, very deep down, dark place for this film. Wan says, Lili has, perhaps, the most challenging role in the film. Her character goes on a physical and emotional rollercoaster and Lili did such a phenomenal job, we felt fortunate to have her. Ron Livingston was cast as Roger Perron, the father and working-class husband whose truck route often keeps him away at night. Ron s a terrific actor. He is so affable and created such a sympathetic character, wanting to protect his family but thwarted by overwhelming forces. You empathize with Roger, which was crucial, Wan continues. Livingston says, To this day, Roger Perron believes that what he felt and saw in that house was real. I m not an arbiter of the universe or the truth; I m the actor playing Roger, so my job is to tell his story to the best of my ability. He adds that Wan s off the charts artistry was the driving force on that psychological journey. I think for something to be creepy, and really affect an audience, it has to go beyond just the mechanics; it's got to connect to something we all understand and it can be something as simple as moving to a new environment, getting everything you ve always wanted, and 8

9 realizing it s far more than you ever bargained for, or could ever even imagine. So be very careful what you wish for, he smiles. When the director showed the cast some of the early footage, Livingston remembers it was scary as hell, and I was there when we shot it. I knew what was going to happen, and it still got me a couple of times. Wan s choice to shoot chronologically elicited an organic process which also impacted the actors bond and performances. Taylor attests, It was brilliant. At first the house was empty, because we were moving in, then it became more lived in. And we hadn't seen anyone else at all for two weeks and then, boom, the Warrens show up, which is exactly how it happened in real life. Wan credits his casting director, Annie McCarthy, with helping find an ensemble of talented younger actors to play the Perron children, including Shanley Caswell as 18-year-old Andrea, Hayley McFarland as 15-year-old Nancy, Joey King as 13-year-old Christine, Mackenzie Foy as 10-year-old Cindy, and newcomer Kyla Deaver as 8-year-old April. These kids were incredible and we had a great time, he says. When you look at Ron, Lili and the girls, you believe them as a nuclear unit. Off-camera, they played around and even quarreled amongst themselves, just like a real family. Another younger performer is Sterling Jerins, portraying the Warrens daughter, Judy. Rounding out the main cast are Marion Guyot playing Judy s grandmother, Georgiana; Steve Coulter as Father Gordon; Shannon Kook as Drew, the Warren s investigative assistant; and John Brotherton as Brad, the local cop who is skeptical of the Warrens abilities and methods until he, too, is caught in the unearthly crossfire one night. POSSESSION LORRAINE WARREN Something s definitely here The final and ultimate stage of demonic activity is possession. Once the invasive wraiths have broken the will of the targeted humans, they take ownership of their physical vessel. And then all Hell breaks loose. In hopes of enlisting the church s assistance in this battle, the Warrens place motion sensor lights and Super 8 cameras around the Perron house to document the activity, along 9

10 with religious artifacts to lure the legions into an open confrontation. It isn t long before bulbs are flashing and events escalate from terrifying to life-threatening. Wan once again relied on the shorthand he has established among his usual behind-thescenes team to create the atmosphere of growing dread leading to the supernatural standoff in The Conjuring. He notes, Naturally, as filmmakers, you take some artistic license, but there were certain things I did not want to compromise on because this was real. Instead of simply shooting on gritty film stock to recreate the 1970s, Wan says, I wanted it to look like a window into a different time period, but peering through the filter of today's technology. The Conjuring is Wan s fourth collaboration with director of photography John R. Leonetti, who tested cameras and lenses to achieve this look, settling on a combination of the Arriflex Arri Alexa digital camera, which has the same latitude as film, is more sensitive to light, and can hold highlights and details in the shadows, and Leica lenses, which are optically flat, and sharply and accurately represent what s actually there. The Arriflex camera is the first digital camera that is as vivid and graceful as film, Leonetti describes. The fastest film ASA is 500. The Arriflex is easily 800 ASA. Combined with Leica lenses, wide open at 1.4, we could capture a flat realism without grain but rich with texture. Safran says, James and John are completely in sync; it was a thing of beauty to watch their artistic dance in creating the mood and images in this film. Principal photography took place in Wilmington, North Carolina, where filmmakers searched for the perfect house to double as the Perron residence. Cowan reveals, I remember the first time we came out to scout. James had to go around and make sure all the lights were on and there was nothing in his hotel room. Despite the kind of movies he does and the genre he has been wildly successful in, he's not one of those guys who just loves the idea of horror; he knows what scares people because he gets scared by the same things. Production designer Julie Berghoff, who has collaborated on three other films with Wan, says, James told us from the beginning: I don't want these apparitions to be seen at first, I want them to be felt. I do believe in ghosts and I agree with James that not always seeing the thing wreaking havoc is often very disturbing. They found a house with acreage that sweeps down to the Black River, which was used for several exterior scenes. Leonetti shot the surrounding landscape to create an almost 360 degree cyclorama to marry the location to the full scale, two-story 6,000 square feet structure built on a soundstage to mirror it. Everyone agreed it was so real you almost felt as if you could actually walk down the road. 10

11 For Wan and Leonetti, the use of practical lighting was vital to setting the tone. We basically used a fundamental palette, creating natural light on many levels, explains Leonetti. Wan compares Leonetti s lighting skills to brush strokes on canvas. It's just so beautiful. Very classic, Italian Renaissance-style, Rembrandt-like photography. Berghoff looked at the actual Perron house and other farmhouses on the East Coast and then began her design for the interior, which, she says, springs from the action, and the action is exciting. James attention to detail is extraordinary and he has a distinct vision of how he wants it to play out. He loves long, continuous shots, so the interior was somewhat circular, allowing us to move effortlessly through the entire house. The rooms were also larger and the banister upstairs came apart to accommodate the camera. In addition, the use of a hand-held camera helped Wan to achieve more seamless, fluid action. I wanted a free-form, freestyle feeling, with the camera in there amongst it all, documenting everything, like it was part of the family, the director states. Wan thrusts the audience in the midst of the terror, choreographing those scenes in great detail. If a character's walking down a hallway, I always have the camera behind, following, so the audience is walking with them and doesn t know what's ahead. If something pops outs to startle them, the viewers will be startled as well. If they look into the dim corners of a room and think someone is standing behind the door, I want them to have a hard time looking at it, as well, asking themselves, Am I seeing someone there? I think that really helps to put them in the mindset of the characters. Wan, Berghoff and Leonetti discussed fine-tuning the interior replication of the fivebedroom house to accommodate all the angles they needed for the action, while still retaining the gloom in the corners. Glass transients were also constructed in the main living room and the room next to it, which allowed the camera to look through so the audience would see the action coming across the room directly at them. True to the time, as well as the practical lighting aesthetic, one overhead fixture served as the illumination source and Berghoff s team placed accent lighting on shelving and furniture to add pools of light. The actual house was built in 1736 and was last occupied around the late 40s or 50s. Berghoff suggests, That would have been the last time money was spent on repairs or decorations. So in recreating it, for me, this place was a madam in her day, the house of the county. She was beautiful, but when all these phantoms moved in, they slowly wore on her. She was trying to stand tall and be as regal as she once was, but they slowly chipped away at 11

12 her, the cracks showed up, and the veining and the morbidity of the house eventually loomed over everything. Since the house s character was its true patina, the color palette was not determined by painting. Berghoff relates, During that time, houses weren t bright colors; whites, greys and earth tones were used. We did layers and layers of plastering, so the walls had depth. Lathe and plaster techniques created beautiful cracks that cast shadows in the corners and vignetting also softened the conjoining lines and added texture. We did have some small objects in brighter colors, a touch of faded green or a red that had worn down to a Bordeaux rust color. As the evil becomes more violent, the cellar becomes an increasingly integral part of the story. It s as if you re going down to Hell, and the cellar is the root of it because it s the root of every horrific historic event in the house. Then you go into the crawlspace, the even darker belly of this place, says Berghoff. The designer referred to east coast dwellings to design the rudimentary look of a storage space, using clapboard, stone and a dirt floor. Again relying on practical lighting, Leonetti used one single 250 watt clear bulb to light the cellar, along with matches the characters strike when they find themselves in the inky blackness. Handheld cameras were also used for the chilling crawlspace sequences, which was physically hard for camera operators, who literally crawled along the cramped space underneath the floor and behind the wall holding the camera low. James is a master at crafting a psychological ghost story with lighting and cameras, Leonetti comments, specifically illustrating how Wan conceived the introduction of the Perron house. James had this fabulous idea to start inside the living room, like the house is watching the family moving in, instead of outside with an establishing shot. Then we dollied across through the windows. The second shot used VFX to combine three separate shots. They started on a crane, outside, watching the movers unload the couch from the moving van. The Steadicam followed it into the living room, then continued with one of the kids into the kitchen and then out to the back porch where a wind chime is hung. In order to be able to later facilitate one, seamless shot, they used a green screen in each doorway. It was difficult to line up, because it wasn t motion control, but we managed to pull it off, says Leonetti. In two shots, the whole environment is organically introduced with unsettling undertones so the tension can just build from there. To amplify that tension, another device, the zoom, was employed in specific instances throughout the film. It s not a fast zoom; we slowly, slowly push in to create suspense, offers Leonetti, who also points out that the technique is a nice throwback to the 70s. 12

13 Outside the house, one of the most important set pieces was the mammoth tree that overwhelms the Perron s yard. While scouting the scenic Black River location, Leonetti was struck by the water, which is literally black from the cypress trees, whose roots turn it dark. He suggested incorporating a tree in the exterior because it would not only be an intrinsic part of the location, but an incredible focal point to shoot towards the house, or away from it to the river. Wan loved the idea and Berghoff s team constructed it by the pier at the water s edge. Berghoff describes it as a 150-year-old pecan tree, like a hand coming out of the ground, twisted, but beautiful, like the house. The limbs had fallen off over the years because one of the spirits put its death into it it was basically deteriorating from the inside out. The formidable tree is 50 feet tall and 15 feet in diameter. Sculptress Katrina Johnson helped Berghoff build the maquettes and together they worked to texture the bark to evoke a curving, feminine look that was somehow threatening. Julie is brilliant at what she does and the tree was an amazing piece of art, says Wan. People would just walk by, not realizing it was concrete and steel. The filmmakers were so impressed with it, that they included more exterior scenes featuring its ominous presence. Although not as central to the story, a practical location was also secured for the Warren house. After a lengthy search, Berghoff found a split-level with some really good bones, bringing in original 70s carpet and duplicating 70s wallpaper. The most compelling and disturbing component of the real Warren house is their occult museum, which was re-constructed in one of the rooms on location. This is where Ed and Lorraine store all the items used in Satanic and witchcraft rituals as well as exorcisms, which they have gathered over the years, with the thought that keeping the bad juju in one, monitored place is safer than releasing any of it back into the world. Berghoff and her team hand-crafted dozens of props for the dark, wood paneled museum, including beautiful sculptural pieces juxtaposed with everyday household items: a telephone, a pair of sunglasses, instruments. The crosses were there as protection, she asserts. In fact, a priest still blesses the Warren s real house on a weekly basis. Directly related to The Conjuring, one of the most prominent artifacts is a doll, named Annabelle, which must remain behind locked glass. If it gets out, so does the demon inside it. I designed the room a little differently from the original in the Warrens home so it would have a certain flow. I wanted Annabelle to be hidden, so you have to seek her out. The shelves are open so you can see through the whole room, but it's almost scarier perceiving shadows of things instead of them being completely distinguishable, Berghoff remarks. 13

14 Our Annabelle doll is decrepit and falling apart, inherently creepy. There's something very wrong with this doll. In fact, I didn't want it sitting in the same room with me, staring at me, Wan admits with a laugh. Tony Rosen, at Infinite SFX, created an original concept drawing of Annabelle. He then had to sculpt, mold and cast the porcelain doll as well as design animatronics for its eyes, mouth and head so they would move. The doll s dress was designed by costume designer Kristin M. Burke. After some discussion about whether Annabelle should be a little Dutch girl, she recalls, James said he thought she should be a bride, so I sketched a 1940's wedding dress that resembled one my grandmother wore. The only problem was finding silk in the small town, so she ordered the fabric from Los Angeles. She then aged and dyed the fabric, adding the color red, something else Wan had envisioned. The hair department created a wig for her, but it wasn t until Annabelle was behind the glass, ready to shoot, that the decision to lose her veil was made. Without it, you can really see that eerie face, says Burke. Wan also depended on his hair and costume teams to ensure the authenticity of the era comes across quickly. It s not like I could show lots of cars or signage or street shots to create that period mood, since ninety percent of the film takes place inside the house. They did a fantastic job. In 1971, there were no cell phones, no internet, and there was only one highway in Rhode Island, so the house and the Perrons were truly isolated. That can mean peace and quiet or it can mean there are miles between you and any help or refuge. Burke points out, 1971 regional Rhode Island was cut off from the world really, and the culture was unto itself. Fortunately, Burke had friends who originally hailed from Rhode Island and had access to their family photos and yearbooks. I was really happy to get that primary research from people who were actually there, she notes. Personal photos of Ed and Lorraine were also available. Burke was able to create a wardrobe for Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson from studying those as well as a wealth of photos online. Ed and Lorraine had a style that sort of defied period classification I was very nervous about getting it right, paying homage to these real-life people. She was thrilled when Lorraine pointed to a pair of Farmiga s shoes one day on set and commented that she d had a pair exactly like them. Lili Taylor s costumes, as Carolyn Perron, had a different flavor and a definitive arc. She starts out in very feminine, floral dresses, and then there's this element of red that follows 14

15 her. So in the beginning, she's wearing a bright red sweater. The next time we see her, the color of her dress is a little browner, and she has a slightly brownish red sweater. Then she s in a floral that's more washed out, plus a brown sweater, and so on until she is wearing an oatmeal-colored sweater, and finally, a grey sweatshirt and pants. It's emblematic of the arc of the movie. As she loses herself, she loses that red throughout her costumes. Ron Livingston s blue collar ensembles had a more subtle arc. Burke explains, A lot of his tops appear to be very similar at first. We purchased vintage shirts, and tried to give them a nice lived-in look. By the end, he s in a more defined, powerful plaid which we created, because everything that was muddled becomes clearer for him. Burke recalls, The children thought the bell bottoms they got to wear were groovy. She also dressed 300 people in period clothes for the campus lecture, shot at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, which stood in for the backdrop of the life-changing first meeting between the Warrens and the Perrons. Footage based on real exorcisms from the Warren files was created to project during the lecture. The Warrens used 8mm; however, Leonetti chose 16mm so it would project better in the large space. The visual effects team, led by visual effects supervisor Ray McIntyre Jr., then tweaked the footage to augment the signs of possession. The VFX, as well as the special effects team, led by David Beavis, were also integral to manifesting various poltergeists that plague the Perrons. One of those spectres is embodied by Joseph Bishara, who previously appeared in Wan s hit Insidious, for which he also wrote the music. Once again, Wan sought him out to create the final crucial element to elicit fright: the score. He loves that world; his house is like a horror theme park, all year round, Wan smiles. It wasn't very hard to convince him to come back and do this again for me. What I love about Joe is he thinks outside the box. Whether the unrelenting ticking of clocks that all stop at the same time every night, or the forlorn tinkling from an antique music box Cindy finds, which throws more than her reflection, Wan incorporated audile cues to build tension towards the inevitable culmination of the terrifying battle between the Warrens and the inimical forces afflicting the Perrons. It s what you believe you see through the music and sound design that really gets you, says the director. Wan concludes, What I love about what I do is making someone scream, either from a thrill, or out of fear especially when that lingering effect follows them from the theatre. And since this is a real-life story, I think knowing that evil spirits actually exist is as scary as it gets. # # # 15
