When Anna Tate-Garcia (Linda Cardellini) comes home from work in The Curse of La Llorona (left, 2019), her daughter is watching Scooby-Doo on TV. Cardellini played Velma Dinkley (right) in Scooby-Doo (2002) and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004), evoking the Hermetic art of memory as all these movies involve ghosts and supernatural happenings.

In The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021), the camera that Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) uses (left) is a Rollei 16S, the same one Carl Kolchak (Darren McGavin, 1922-2006) uses (right) to photograph demons and monsters in The Night Stalker (1974-75). The Night Stalker was the forerunner of The X-Files (1993-2018).

Guillermo del Toro honors Stanley Kubrick in Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019). We have two allusions to The Shining (1980), with a R.E.D. Room and the Pale Lady, seen frequently roaming the end of corridors.

(Top left) The Grady Twins become the Pale Lady (top right), while REDRUM (bottom left) becomes the Records & Evaluation Dept. (bottom right) – the same direction as the Boiler House.

Fantastic arcane mnemonic using actress Mckenna Grace as an Art of Memory device (qua Occult Casting). The child actress appeared as Judy Warren in Annabelle Comes Homes (2019, left), battling evil ghosts and demons. Specifically, she combats Mathus, a Great Earl of Hell, and the thirty-eighth demon of The Lesser Key of Solomon. Mathus, of course, possesses the Annabelle doll, wreaking havoc wherever it goes. Ergo, Grace has been cast as Egon Spengler’s granddaughter, Phoebe (right), in Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021), who battles Gozer and a host of evil spirits.

The Conjuring 2’s director, James Wan, has acknowledged a Kubrick influence upon his filmmaking, especially the ultimate haunted house movie, The Shining (1980). At the beginning of The Conjuring 2 (2016), during the séance at the Amityville house (112 Ocean Ave), a Stanley Kubrick look-alike is seated to the right of Lorraine (Vera Farmiga, left) and Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson, center).

Left: From The Conjuring 2 (2016). Lorraine (Vera Farmiga, left) and Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson, center), and, to the right, Kubrick’s doppelganger. Right: Stanley Kubrick on the set of The Shining ca. 1979.

The same Stay-Puft Marshmallow sign/billboard. “Sub-creatures! Gozer the Gozerian, Gozer the Destructor, Volguus Zildrohar, the Traveler has come! Choose and perish!” – Gozer, Ghostbusters, 1984.
