The Conjuring which is the scariest movie ever is based on the true story of the Perron family, They lived in the Harrisville, Rhode Island home in the 70s and Ed and Lorraine Warren, the leading paranormal specialists. After her husband’s death, Lorraine went on to be a principal consultant for the movie, as well as the following prequels and sequels.
Andrea Perron, the oldest of the 5 Perron daughters who lived in the home till the 80s, still stands by her claim that evil spirits lived in the house with the family in an interview with USA Today. In the interview, Lorraine Warren talks about her time at the Harrisville farmhouse-including a séance they did. “The things that went on there were just so incredibly frightening,” Lorraine said. “It still affects me to talk about it today.”
“I thought I was going to pass out,” Andrea said about the experience. “My mother began to speak a language not of this world in a voice not her own. Her chair levitated and she was thrown across the room.”
As for the couple who bought the haunted house, they’ve had their good share of strange happenings as well, but fortunately, no séances have happened there yet.
“We had doors opening, footsteps and knocks,” Cory Heinzen, the new owner, said to the Sun Journal. “I’ve had a hard time staying there by myself. I don’t have the feeling of anything evil, [but] it’s very busy. You can tell there’s a lot of things going on in the house.”
“This whole journey has been both scary for many reasons other than paranormal-and exciting all at once,” Jennifer Heinzen said. “I love that we have the opportunity to share the home with others.”
If the paranormal excites you then there is some good news for you, the couple says they plan to open up their new digs to horror tourists-and investigators-later this year after an extended renovation. But don’t worry-they still plan to maintain the home and the story of The Conjuring that is a part of it.
