The Conjuring scares up this creepy poster

Yesterday we showed you how asstacular movie posters can get with the crappy one sheet for The Wolverine (the trailer is much, much better BTW). Today, we in The Basement proudly display how a studio can get it right.

Now isn't that a thing of beauty? It shows what a studio -- in this case Warner Bros/New Line Cinema -- does when it has faith in its product. The execs know director James Wan has a hit on his hands. Advancing screenings have been through the roof. So why not give the film a glorious poster?

Roger (Ron Livingston) and Carolyn (Lili Taylor) Perron buy a farmhouse to share with their daughters. At first, it just seems like your ordinary fixer-upper. But then strange noises and inexplicable disturbances start. Soon the Perrons realize the place is crammed with spirits, the worst being Bathsheba Sherman, a “godforsaken soul” of a witch hanged on the property. The family turns to famed paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren (Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson) for help.

The Conjuring hits theatres July 19. My birthday. For those who care.
