The Conjuring starring Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga is earning quite a buzz ever since the trailer for this new horror film came out. The Conjuring is already being tagged as a sensational horror film to watch out for and it already premiered in cinemas last Friday, July 12th 2013. The mystery that lies in a farmhouse in Rhode Island will soon be revealed and will surely be the most terrifying case these two investigators will encounter. So what is the latest buzz about this upcoming movie? Check out the article below and find out why Vera Farmiga is fascinated by The Conjuring:
“The Fascination of Vera Farmiga in The Conjuring
Not because of anything that happens during the supernatural chiller.
But because of what occurred while she was filming it.
Farmiga, who portrays clairvoyant and paranormal investigator, Lorraine Warren, recalls being unnerved by a strange mark left on her laptop computer following her first creative conversation with director James Wan.
“After I’d hung up the phone and opened my laptop and there were these three claw marks across the screen,” she explains.
“There’s something in me that doesn’t buy into that and that wants to repel it. I acknowledged it, but I’m naturally equipped to repel any negativity that I felt.”
Farmiga is fighting a cold and popping throat lozenges during an interview at the Ritz Carlton hotel. As she relates the story of the creepy claw marks, the 39-year-old actor — who’s received strong buzz and reviews for playing mother-from-hell Norma Bates on the A&E drama, Bates Motel — takes out her iPhone and scrolls through a number of photos until she finds one she took the day after filming ended.
It’s a close-up of her thigh with what appears to be three large, red scratches stretching across it. Farmiga says she saw the marks after she woke up and describes them as eerily similar to the ones that appeared on her laptop months earlier.
“I might have prayed in that instant and then discarded it,” admits Farmiga. “Letting it get to you or inviting it is giving it power, so I repelled it.”
Set in the early 1970s, The Conjuring, which opens Friday, is based on Warren and her late demonologist husband Ed’s dealings with Carolyn and Roger Perron, who claimed their Rhode Island farmhouse was haunted.
The Warrens described it later as one of the most harrowing and dangerous cases they had ever worked on. Other strange incidents happened during filming on the Wilmington, N.C., set but cast and crew members tried their best to keep things light to offset the weirdness and the movie’s dark subject matter.
“There was a set full of children,” says Farmiga, referring to the five young actresses who play the Perron’s daughters.
“We had to protect their already fragile psyches. Look at their acting … There are extraordinary performances by these girls. They went so deep into their performances, we had to snap them out of it. We had to give them a good time and consecrate the space, so there was a lot of playing.”
