Ghosts & Hauntings

Couple buys house that inspired 'The Conjuring'

The remote Rhode Island farmhouse that inspired the popular movie has something of a sinister past.
The infamous abode, which was recently purchased by Cory Heinzen and his wife Jennifer, was once the home of the Perron family whose experiences at the house in the 1970s are well documented.

Cory, who has a keen interest in the paranormal, maintains that he has always been fascinated by Ed and Lorraine Warren whose investigation of the house inspired the movie 'The Conjuring'.

The story goes that a witch had cursed the property, dooming anyone who lived there.

The Perrons experienced all manner of unexplained occurrences which reportedly became increasingly sinister and threatening as time went on.
According to the house's new owners, surprisingly little has changed.

"We had doors opening, footsteps and knocks," said Cory. "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."

I don't know if the Warrens were con artists or not. I'm definitely not taking the word of the first people to say so without proof though. Especially because of the nature of the things they were involved in. I saw, I believe it was A Hauntings version of the conjuring story. It was powerful. Then again I'm a sucker for a good ghost story.

con artists? they have or had ( rip ) zero proof of any claims they made, only talk tales they earned a great income living doing what they did, and said it wasnt a show but real and since they insisted demons were basically everywhere, they were to me con artists or mental or both. if their ghosts come haunt me just to smite me, ill be sure to let you know.

I will bet they bought it cheap, he'll I would have bought it. Think of all the money you could make giving tours, and letting Paranormal Researchers ghost hunt.

The Warren's inspected the house for paranormal activity, but it was Andrea Perron's story that inspired the Conjuring. If you watch her YouTube video's, she doesn't exactly seem fond of the Warren's.

most old houses can be said to be haunted, mine is, well so they said. false advertisement. some just more famous than others, people have lived in many famous alleged haunted houses after the money shot and no experences, the best reason ahem excuse albeit assinine explanation, the new residents are just not enlightened to the experence, too close minded to see the haunts so theres the easy answer for those of you dealing with possessed dolls or child nadding TV sets no need to call in Tangina Barrons or Peter Venkman and get ecto slime all over the new berber, nope, save the hassles, just cl...

The office I work in was built in the 1700's. It's been renovated a few times . No one has ever experienced a thing.  My boss has a big old farmhouse in Vermont which has been completely renovated as well. It's gorgeous. He was telling us about pictures that were left in the attic by the original owners dated from the late 1800's. Creeping looking as hell. I asked him and his wife if they have ever experienced anything paranormal.  Nope. Nothing. As much as I want to believe in the paranormal, I remain skeptic until I actually see something myself.

Could you imagine?  They'd have to dig money out of the budget for a priest all the time or a great cleaning crew that could get the blood off the walls
