NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A movie filmed in the Wilmington area premiered across the country Friday.
The Conjuring was filmed in the area last summer and is based on the lives of two real-life paranormal investigators.
Many moviegoers at Mayfaire Cinema 16 in Wilmington Friday said they were unaware the movie was filmed locally.
They said it made them want to see the horror film even more.
"I mean I have a lot of friends who work in the film industry," said moviegoer Chad Gleaton. "They've talked it up."
The film takes place in Rhode Island.
