Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.
The Conjuring stars Lili Taylor, Ron Livingston, Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson and is directed by James Wan. Untied Motion Pictures, the biggest film distributor in the Arab world and the sole distributor of Warner Bros. films in Egypt will release the film in Egyptian theatres.
