5 Creepy Facts About "The Conjuring" In GIFs + A Blu-Ray Giveaway

Here's something cool for those of you who loved The Conjuring. The uber creepy movie that freaked out audiences this summer will be out on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, October 22nd, and one lucky person could win a Blu-ray copy! In case you're unfamiliar with the film, which stars Lili Taylor, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, below is a brief synopsis:

Based on a true story, the movie tells the horrifying account of how famed paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were summoned to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse which they recently bought. In fighting this powerful demonic being, the Warrens find themselves in the middle of the most terrifying case of their lives!

To enter the contest, check out the awesome GIFs below that share spine-tingling facts about the movie, and tell me (in the comments box below) why you most deserve to win. The contest ends on October 31st at 11:59pm EST.

The Conjuring 5 Things to know… INTERACTIVE GIFS! 

1) The Conjuring is directed by the acclaimed James Wan, the Australian-born director of the fright-fests Insidious and the Saw series. His Twitter handle is @CreepyPuppet. Say no more. 


2) The Conjuring has been given an “R” rating by the MPAA. Not because of blood, gore, or violence, but simply because it’s just so scary from start to finish!


3) The Conjuring’s cast and crew experienced creepy events during filming. Scratches appeared out of nowhere on Vera Farmiga’s computer soon after she agreed to act in the movie, the crew were routinely woken by something in the “witching hour” between 3 and 4AM, and the real-life Carolyn Perron fell and broke her hip while visiting the set.  


4) The Rhode Island farmhouse where The Conjuring is set once belonged to an accused witch, Bathsheba, who tried to sacrifice her children to the devil and killed herself in 1863.


5) Hold your applause! The Conjuring will make you terrified to clap! Whether it’s playing a traditional game of hide-and-seek by following the clapping sounds like the mother and daughter in the movie, or being terrorized by ghostly claps in different rooms of the haunted farmhouse, these claps throughout the movie will give you the creeps! 

Each household is only eligible to win 1 Warner Bros. copy of the The Conjuring Blu-ray. Only one entrant per mailing address per giveaway. If you have won the same prize on another blog, you will not be eligible to win it again. Winner is subject to eligibility verification. Giveaway is open to the U.S. & Canada only. The prize will be sent via FedEx or USPS. No P.O. Boxes please.

I missed seeing The Conjuring in theaters, and I've heard it's such a great Horror movie. I would love to check it out, because I think it will be a great date night movie to watch with my wife, if you know what I mean. ;) Thanks for the chance.

I deserve to win because I saw this one in theaters and I'd be overjoyed to revisit it again and again at home. I've been a big fan of James Wan for years now and I believe this is his best one yet. It's such a classic, masterfully crafted horror film. I love it!

I knew "The Conjuring" was based on a real case, but I did not know Fact #4 about Bathseba was indeed true. Very interesting.
