Turn on all the lights because there's another "Conjuring" spinoff heading to theaters to scare us all.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, New Line is developing a spinoff based on the Crooked Man, first introduced in "Conjuring 2." The franchise stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as paranormal researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren, who help people whose homes are being haunted by evil spirits.
The tall, thin character is based on a nursery rhyme (There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile," etc.) and was seen in "Conjuring 2" emerging from a wind-up music box.
(A horror movie titled "Crooked Man" came out earlier this year but is not related to the franchise.)
"The Conjuring" has been a successful horror franchise, launching several spinoffs. It started with the prequel "Annabelle," and a follow-up, "Annabelle: Creation" is opening in August. "The Nun," a spinoff about the demonic nun in "Conjuring 2," is set for Friday, July 13, 2018.
In 1977, paranormal investigators Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren come out of a self-imposed sabbatical to travel to Enfield, a borough in north London. There, they meet Peggy Hodgson, an overwhelmed single mother of four who tells the couple that something evil is in her home. Ed and Lorraine believe her story when the youngest daughter starts to show signs of demonic possession. As the Warrens try to help the besieged girl, they become the next targets of the malicious spirit. Read More
