Check out the canny new trailer for James Wan's "The Conjuring," which is receiving strong reviews prior to its July 19 release. (Variety's hailed it as "Insidious" and "Saw" director Wan's "masterpiece.") The trailer cleverly interweaves interview snippets with the real-life Perron family, whose story of being haunted in their Rhode Island farmhouse in the 1970s is the basis for the film. Even the use of the baritone voiceover evokes a creepily vintage feel.

Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson star as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Wilson; Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor play the heads of the Perron household.
