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).
