Whether you prefer a movie that sends chills down your spine or a movie that will make you laugh until you cry, this summer’s theatrical releases can be felt and appreciated on a whole new level with D-BOX.

1.      A Quiet Place Part II

Following the silently terrifying events of the 2018 blockbuster, Evelyn Abbot (Emily Blunt) must leave the home she built with late-husband Lee (John Krasinski) behind as danger lurks at every corner. With her newborn infant, son Marcus (Noah Jupe) and daughter Regan (Milicent Simmonds) in tow, the family sets off in search of safety while being hunted by stealthy monsters—sometimes human in nature.

With the first film of the series having grossed $341 million worldwide and with part II having been delayed almost a year, this highly anticipated sequel is sure to be one of the biggest horror movies of the season.

2.      The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

The third movie in The Conjuring series based on the real-life cases of paranormal investigators Ed and Loraine Wilson, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is taking on one of the couple’s arguably most famous cases: that of the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, who sent shockwaves around the world by arguing in court that she could not be found guilty of murder as she was possessed by the devil while committing the crime.

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return to play Ed and Lorraine respectively in this chilling tale that will see them fight for a young boy and potentially bring them face-to-face with the devil himself.
