WonderCon Saturday fires up their largest panel room, the Arena, with an unnerving and dizzying exclusive clip of “The Conjuring” just for the WonderCon crowd. While they did show a trailer for the film, it was the new footage that shows what happens to the girls while they are sleeping that really got the attention of the horror crowd. For those that don’t know, this movie is based on a true story. What was really interesting here was that the panel featured the family that lived through this event and the demonologist, Lorraine Warren, that helped the family. Must be odd to relive your most terrifying supernatural encounter on the big screen, huh? And something further to appreciate: While the director, James Wan, intended to make a PG-13 movie, the film received an R rating due to the extremely frightening content. In theaters July 19.
