After hearing about how good James Wan’s retro haunted house flick is (test audiences apparently loved it) and only getting a handful of stills, we are finally treated to the first trailer. Needless to say, it lives up to the hype. Wan showcased his level of skill with producing old school scares with his previous horror blockbuster Insidious. Lili Taylor and her young children are the focus in this first teaser. And although the scares showcased here aren’t anything new, Wan more than makes up for them with a level of sophistication and acute timing for when to reveal to the viewer the scares. Check it out for yourself below and try not to be spooked of clapping by the end of the trailer. The Conjuring hits theaters on July 19.
