Farmiga confronts demonic entity in Conjuring

MANILA, Philippines - Academy Award-nominee Vera Farmiga stars in New Line Cinema’s horror thriller The Conjuring as a demonologist’s loving wife and preternaturally gifted partner Lorraine, who is swept along with her husband into the violent path of a malevolent presence.

Based on the true-to-life story, The Conjuring tells the tale of how world-renowned paranormal investigators Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most horrifying case of their lives.

Farmiga offers, “This was an interesting psychic space to explore. Even though it put me in a cold sweat and panic, I had the compelling need to investigate this story.”

What were the greatest challenges in playing her?

“I am playing Lorraine Warren as of December 1970. I met the 80-something year-old Lorraine. I suppose the greatest challenges were to determine who the 30-something version of herself was. Many of my personal questions for Lorraine had to do with her vocational/maternal insecurities and fear and disappointments. I have a hard enough time doing what I do and balancing that with being the best mom and wife I can be. I wanted to know how she handled being a ghostbuster by night and a domestic ball-buster by day.” (Laughs)

 The Conjuring, a New Line Cinema production and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, is showing nationwide.
