At the world premiere of "The Conjuring" sequel on Tuesday night, the cast and crew were on hand to talk about not just the new film but about the chances of the franchise continuing.
The film's director James Wan was more hesitant but still open to the idea: "It depends on what happens this weekend... there could be many more movies because the Warrens have so many stories."
The films are based on the stories of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) with their most famous case being the Amityville Horror, the events of which take place between the first and second "Conjuring" film and won't likely form a part of this series. »

Edward Gardiner with a defence of the jump scare…
“The Conjuring is a horror movie for people who don’t like horror movies.”
I like Mark Kermode. He’s one of the most respected film critics working today because of a fantastic (and rare) combination of insight, humour and honesty, and a genuine love for film, which has propelled him to the top of his profession – not to mention an enviable knowledge of the subject . I’ll listen to anything he says, read anything he writes, watch anything he makes. I respect his opinion whether I agree with it or not; in fact, one of the most enjoyable things about listening to the Wittertainment podcast he does with Simon Mayo every Friday is hearing him wax lyrically about a film I didn’t warm to, or vice versa, because I enjoy weighing up my opinion against someone who always has »
