NEW LINE CINEMA’S SUPERNATURAL THRILLER “THE CONJURING 2” FROM DIRECTOR JAMES WAN
Fans will get a virtual “insider’s” view of the real-life house and sit in the very chair where old Bill Wilkins died…and where his possessed spirit remains.
To celebrate the nationwide release of New Line Cinema’s “The Conjuring 2,” the terrifying sequel to director James Wan’s chilling box office success “The Conjuring,” Warner Bros.
