Can you imagine knowingly living in an actual haunted house? No, right? We can’t either! But a couple in Rhode Island, US, recently purchased their dream home. And it just so happens that their dream home is the house that served as the inspiration for the Conjuring movies! Yes, a couple voluntarily chose to buy this house and live in it! We can’t get it either! But the eight-and-a-half-acre farmhouse was built in 1736 and boasts of a river and a pond in the back. It’s a beautiful home, however, it is known for the paranormal activities which served as an inspiration for The Conjuring franchise.
The Real Story Behind The House
For those of you who were too scared to watch The Conjuring, the movie is based on the real-life story of the Perron family who moved into a farmhouse where they experience supernatural phenomena. However, they consult demonologists, Ed and Lorraine, to help them get rid of the evil entity haunting them. And of course, this is a true story!
The real Perron family lived in the farmhouse for approximately ten years. Located in the small country town of Harrisville, Rhode Island, Roger Perron and his wife Carolyn purchased the home in the winter of 1970. The Perron family certainly believes that they were haunted by something while they lived in a farmhouse in Rhode Island. They even got in touch with Ed and Lorraine Warren, the paranormal investigators.
Regardless of whether the haunting occurred the way that it was portrayed in the film, something very real seems to have happened to the Perron family and their terror went on to help craft one of the scariest movies of the 2000s!
Open to Visit
If you’re a fan of the scary film franchise and a thrill-seeker, you’re in luck because Cory Heinzen and wife Jennifer are planning to open up the house to visitors and investigator. And it is going to happen sooner than you think! By the end of this year (2019), the house will be open to visit and guess what, apparently the house is still haunted. The couple claims to have heard unexplained knocks and footsteps. Well, as fans of the film, we know where we are headed for our winter break! What about you?
