In the 11 years since his death, a number of films have emerged from his case files — stories/accounts he’d shared with with his longtime wife Lorraine. Horror master James Wan took the Warren files and ran with them, helming the critical and commercial successes “The Conjuring” (2013) and “The Conjuring 2” (2016). Each features Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as Ed and Lorraine, respectively. Wan also acted as producer on the related movie “Annabelle” (2014), which outlined the strange past of the demonic doll that lay in the Warrens’ Occult Museum. Since 2013, the Warren filmic universe has truly proliferated. Before that, however, there was also a film loosely based on the Warrens’ account of the Snedecker haunting in … [Read more...] about A comprehensive look at the best movie characters from the Warren case files on the 11th anniversary of Ed’s death
