You may or may not believe the ghost-battling tales of paranormal investigators Lorraine Warren and her late husband, Ed. But, as someone who once spent a day in the delightful company of Lorraine at the house she was sharing with a multitude of occult artifacts (and a couple of caged chickens), your reporter can confirm that she has no shortage of supernatural-themed yarns.

All of which brings us to The Conjuring 2, director James Wan’s sequel to his own, hugely successful 2013 chiller which recounted how the Warrens — played by Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson — faced off against an unquiet spirit at a Rhode Island farmhouse. Wan, Farmiga, and Wilson are all back for the U.K.-set sequel and, judging by the movie’s first trailer, it would appear that their from-beyond-the-grave adversary is just as noisy this time around.

The Conjuring 2 opens on June 10.
