The first trailer for new horror movie The Conjuring has just arrived and boasts three solid scares — which is at least two more than most terror flicks manage during their entire duration. Directed by James Wan (Insidious), the ’70s-set film stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as a pair of paranormal investigators who come to the aid of a farmhouse-dwelling couple played by Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor. And judging by the trailer, they require a lot of aid.

The Conjuring also stars Mackenzie Foy (AKA Renesmee from the Twilight franchise) and has a July 19 release date. Check out the clip below and see if you agree that it is indeed the scariest trailer of the year so far.
