“When [The Conjuring director] James [Wan] and I sat down, and we talked story, we wanted [it] to be a little bit more of a mission-based movie. We wanted to give a little bit of an action-adventure flavor to it, rather than just someone moving into a house and something creepy happens ” screenwriter Gary Dauberman revealed to Entertainment Weekly.
He added, “We wanted something very atmospheric, very moody — and setting it in Romania certainly accomplishes that.”
