‘The Conjuring 2’ News: Man Dies While Watching Film, Body Goes Missing

The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist has now reportedly given a man a heart attack that subsequently killed him. But that was not the worst part about this story, which involves the “true horror” film directly.

According to a report on U.K. publication Daily Mail, The Conjuring 2 was being screened at a local theater in a city in India when a man started experiencing chest pains. His friend who was with him during the screening of The Conjuring 2 then rushed him to a local hospital, where he was presumably pronounced dead.

That same friend was instructed by the hospital to take the deceased to a nearby college, Tiruvannamalai Government Medical College Hospital, for a post-mortem examination. But that friend and the dead man never made it to the hospital and have subsequently vanished, with no explanation.

Although The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist is said to be based on a true story, which were accounts taken from the case files of Ed and Lorraine Warren in the 1970s, the film itself is a dramatization of the events that actually occurred. But for an incident like this to take place as a direct result of watching The Conjuring 2, it leaves a superstition on the public perception of the film being a “true horror” supernatural type of movie.

Although there is likely a rational explanation as to what may have happened to the dead man and his friend, there is no doubt that it gives The Conjuring 2 a little extra momentum heading into the global box office. Fans need to take into consideration that the main marketing point for this movie is that it is classified as a “true horror” film, which seems to boost its box office performance and thus makes it more successful.

Adding extra flavor to this “true horror” film is that it takes place in the 1970s, which was a time when “true horror” was most prevalent. Films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Exorcist and The Amityville Horror were being released around this time and they used the same claim, to be “true horror.”
