The Conjuring, these films are so good that they have gone on to inspire other branching spin-offs, such as The Nun and The Crooked Man
Those who have seen The Conjuring 2, are familiar with The Demon Nun (portrayed by Bonnie Aarons). The persona made such an impression amongst audiences. Now people want to see a film based off her character alone.
The Demon Nun isn’t the only character praised. The Crooked Man is also getting some hype. Likewise, suggestions for this character’s spin-off film is also in circulation.
Jared Krichevsky created the concept design of The Crooked Man. Krichevsky is a veteran concept designer with notable works in Krampus and Stranger Things. The images below comes courtesy of Krichevsky’s online portfolio. Based on the concept art we can see the many incarnations The Crooked Man had before the final design. I have to say that these images are interesting. I agree that it could start to a whole new film idea.
For those unaware, The Crooked Man is not a product of CGI. The role was portrayed by Spaniard actor, Javier Botet. Botet is no stranger to the Horror genre. Over the past decade, Botet starred in many Horror films. By far one of Botet’s most notable work is the REC film franchise.
The Conjuring 2 released in theaters on June 10th, 2016. It is now available to buy on August 30th 2016 on DVD and Blu-Ray.
The Conjuring 2 was directed by James Wan. The film is co-written by Wan, Carey Hayes, Chad Hayes, and David Leslie Johnson.
“The Conjuring 2 was a great pleasure to work on and I love the way [The Crooked Man] turned out in the movie as well. As a huge fan of his work I really learned a lot in getting notes from James Wan; he really enjoyed the exploration process and was open to letting the character evolve.
“The movie turned out brilliant and I hope to see a Crooked Man spinoff at some point.”
