Exclusive: Family Member Reveals The Conjuring ‘True Story’

Herner Klenthur 267 Comments Movie Page: The Conjuring

Yesterday afternoon I wrote up an article detailing the true story behind the film The Conjuring. We shared some video of the Perron family talking about their life on the family farm and the demons they dealt with. We also shared some fascinating details about the paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who are the focus of the film.

What inspired me to do some homework on true story behind The Conjuring‘s was wanting to start a dialogue about just how much of the film is based in fact and how much the screenwriter made up. As we discussed yesterday, “true story” gets slapped on a ton of movies and in the end we know that many are about as real as the Easter Bunny.

Yesterday’s article has inadvertently led to some actual answers from a member of the Perron family.

Andrea Perron, one of the family members who lived on the farm, actually took the time to answer the question, “How true is the real story behind The Conjuring?”

Andrea Perron wrote a three-part book on her experiences growing up on the farm called House of Darkness House of Light and she wrote to me to share a very small bit of insight on the film:

Dear Herner ~

On behalf of my entire family, thank you for the fine and balanced reporting in this article. For the purpose of clarification, “The Conjuring” IS based on a “true story”…our story. However, the film is not based on my trilogy “House of Darkness House of Light”. It is, instead, based upon the case files of Ed & Lorraine Warren.

They conducted an investigation of our home between 1973-74 and the movie tells our story from their perspective.

I welcome the inclusion of the video which involves my mother, as it introduces your readers to her in a way which will enhance their appreciation of the film. There is no conceivable way to condense what we as a family endured in the farmhouse into a two-hour motion picture but James (Wan) captured the essence of it and for this I will remain eternally grateful. I’ll tell you what’s scary — turning your life story over to strangers with the stroke of a pen on a contract. Mortified by the notion, I took the ultimate leap of faith.

Though Mrs. Warren and I both provided the studio with more information than they could handle, the screenwriters had much to pick & choose from, amalgamating it into a cohesive rendering which I am proud of, having been privileged to see it as a private screening last March. The film is amazing and nothing anyone expects. It is a fair reflection of the chaos and danger we faced at the farm. The entire true story is chronicled in the books but the movie stands alone as a work of art — not fiction.

There are liberties taken and a few discrepancies but overall, it is what it claims to be — based on a true story, believe it or not. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or comments and once again, thank you for your fair and consistent treatment in this piece. Yours in spirit ~ Andrea

Below you can check out a 45 minute video that Perron uploaded to YouTube where she revisits the farm and talks with the new homeowners about their own supernatural experiences on the century-old colonial property. It is a fascinating look at the actual farm as well as the people who lived on it originally and those who live on it now.

Regardless of whether The Conjuring is a true story or completely made up, there is no denying that director James Wan has delivered a movie that is generating lots of buzz. When we recently asked our readers what movie they were most anticipating in the coming year, The Conjuring was a popular choice.

The Conjuring is the true story of paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren, who were called upon by the Perron family who were being terrorized by a dark presence in their secluded farm-house. When Ed and Lorraine Warren visit the farmhouse to help the Perrons, they find themselves caught up in the most terrifying case of their lives. Or at least that is what the studio is saying! The Conjuring stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson and will be in theaters July 19, 2013. Be sure to check out our early review of The Conjuring.

October 2013 Update: The studio was nice enough to send us “Annabelle,” the creepy doll from The Conjuring, to give away. You can enter that contest here.

        I don’t doubt what the family says is real but I do have doubts about what Lorraine Warren’s perception of reality is. Lest we forget that the Warrens were “involved” in the Amittyville Horror fake. I will watch the movie but the doubt will be in the back of my mind.

          Can you elaborate? I am not familiar with that story.

        • jackiec2996 July 19, 2013 at 4:06 am

          Ed and Loraine warren were also involved in the “HOAX” of the Amityvill Horror Story. A very popular horror film from the 70’s I believe. They over exaggerated details of the story and rumor has it that given the circumstances of the previous history pulled/convinced the family to LIE and say unbelievable accusations of haunting. It really is worth investigating just so you understand again who’s story you listen to. I have not seen the movie yet but am looking forward to it and further investigation in all sources involved…

        • ViXP August 27, 2013 at 5:57 pm

          In this world there are NO EVIDENCES of any ghosts, demons appearence, or even extrasenses which can not be explained by hysteria or hallucinations. Warrens having A LOT OF MONEY, to say it’s all true and keep getting more and more. People love medieval nonsense.

        • daniel September 1, 2013 at 5:37 am

          ViXP, even if there were, skeptics wouldn’t believe it. It’s in human nature to fear or deny what they do not understand. Depending on each individual’s belief of what is possible, we all hide our fears behind either belief or skepticism. In the end, both can be seen as defense mechanisms and both provide an explanation to unusual events. “Believers” explain it using, what most people consider “impossible” (although no proof that demons or ghosts do not exist has been provided either). Skeptics simply use a different but similar approach… adapt what they can’t explain to concepts they can, that’s how the feel in “control”. In the end we know so little about everything, that we can’t confirm nor deny anything. It kinda makes me wonder that perhaps it is true that the devil’s greatest trick was convincing the world he didn’t exist.

        • Lynn January 14, 2014 at 11:51 am

          I love how everyone jumps on the Amityville HOAX jump wagon. Anyone ever been there? It’s a local spot where I live and there’s all kinds of stories, as you’d expect. I question everything. But, the greatest trick the devil performed was convincing the world he didn’t exist. But that place still has the stench of evil clinging to it. My sister and her boyfriend had an experience there she won’t even talk about. (She’s not Catholic but went to mass with me for weeks afterwards, I converted after taking classes to learn more before I committed.) The film The Conjuring states Ed Warren is the ONLY demonolgist recognized by the Catholic Church. I’m Catholic. Do you have any idea how HARD it is to get anything done in the church like that? Checked with my priest and he confirmed it. He asked me why I wanted to know, and let me tell you…he got a fair amount of grief even inquiring about it. Ask yourself why? Even the church doesn’t want to spread too much “devil” talk around. But after my priest made his inquiries he said he also heard some things that made even him skittish. Coincidentally, we started saying the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel each mass after that and urged to include it in our daily prayers. Say what you will but Ed Warren was the real deal. There’s NO WAY the church would recognize him without EXTREME amounts of proof.

        • Tiago January 14, 2014 at 10:47 pm

          There is no such thing as a demonologist in the Cahtolic church. For what I know he was permitted to perform exorcism, and he was the only american to do so, but that information is also not confirmed. You have to be a priest to do so.I have never seen those two pronounce the name of our Lord Jesus. I really don’t trust them.

      2. Tiago June 30, 2013 at 7:24 pm

        it has great chances of being a total fake story. Lorraine Warren’s presence on it is one indicator, since she was involved on the Amytiville hoax.
        I have trouble believing any of this stories that are on a book shelf and not in a church testimony searching for spiritual help. cause, trust me, if it happens to you, you will want spiritual guidance, not a book about it.

        • Stacey July 1, 2013 at 5:32 pm

          To those whom haven’t experienced any paranormal activity I can see the “not so sure” looks and disbelief that things like this can or could ever happen. I on the other hand have for many years and I have told friends and family even my children about my experiences not for attention or for anyone to believe but if it were to happen to them “believe” it and do not question what you experience just be aware. I used to think “did I just see that?” or “did I just hear that?” Luckily no one ever was hurt and my Mother and Best Friend got to witness some. The thing with me is that I have moved several times not to get away from anything just because I wanted to needed to and I have experienced things in all places just about.

        • Chris July 18, 2013 at 7:06 am

          When I bought my house it was haunted from the very first night I was there. It freaked me out. I called pastors preists and even a rabbi. People thought I was lying or crazy. I am a christian so I don’t believe in human spirits roaming the earth. I believe in evil spirits pretending to be humans to pull people from God. That is why I was so affected by this situation. My first month at my house I couldn’t eat or sleep. I was always shaking really bad. Another thing that freaked me out is that things happen in the day too. It’s not like in movies where everything happens at night. I have had about 8-10 people witness things in my house. If other people didnt I would hav put myself in psych ward. I’ve heard people walking around. Heavy objects falling. Doors swinging open forcefully and heard a woman talking. Creepy. Woo

        • shannon October 13, 2013 at 12:54 pm

          Believe it or not Amityville was not a hoax and has been proven countless times. And mostly likely even if undeniable proof is staring skeptical people in the face their going to keep claiming hoax rather than admit their wrong. And the fact that you have a family member saying yeap it happened as well? The Warrens weren’t always rich?

        • Tiago October 13, 2013 at 4:22 pm

          I dont trust the warrens. Acoarding to my research the amytiville story is a hoax.

        • shannon October 13, 2013 at 11:13 pm

          Everyone one is entitled to there own opinion and all the research I ve done states Amityville was real even other families that have lived in that house have stated they ve had experiences in that house. And as for ghost being real well I ve seen and experienced enough to know that they are thankfully none have been manvolent towards me .

        • Tiago October 14, 2013 at 6:56 am

          ok, shannon. I don’t doubt your word. But based on the facts I’ve seen, on the documentaries, I remain skeptical about that case. But, being skeptical is being open for both ways, is really being not sure. That’s how I fell about that story. I understand how truly horror that must have been, really terrible what happened there. Who can know for sure what happened to DeFeo that night? But I really believe the warren’s case is weak to provide evidence of what they claim, although it may be true.

        • Heather March 20, 2014 at 3:24 am

          Ed Warren was a demonologist. Which is someone that studies and knows about demons. He was the only non ordained demonologist recognized by the catholic church. By the way he was not actually supposed to perform exorcism, it is supposed to be a priest trained to do so. But if something is trying to kill you I would say it’s better to have it performed by someone with extreme faith than not to have it performed at all. I’m pretty sure I made my opinion about Lorraine and the Amityville case known fairly well earlier but it was not a hoax. She would have no reason to be involved in one. She does what she does so she can help people and because she has a god given gift. She doesn’t do it to make money. I hate to say it but it is the catholic church that lies about all of this. They don’t want people to know that stuff like that can happen. Why do you think you don’t hear about it. It is possible to get an exorcism through the catholic church but it’s extremely difficult. But like you said if it happened to me I would want spiritual guidance and not a book. However, what good would the guidance be if the church didn’t even believe you or refused to help you? Unfortunately you can’t trust that churches are going to tell you the whole truth either, and that is sad.

        • Tiago March 20, 2014 at 4:59 pm

          Heather, there is no such thing as a demonologist in the hierarchy of the Catholic church. To communicate with demons is considered a heresy. A priest perform an exorcism by the authority and the name of Jesus, through prayer. All the truth and protection you need is in the Bible. Nothing else can help in a case of demonic influence. As for possession, it hasn’t been happening in a long time, there is no real case of that in a long time.

        • joaniedk July 11, 2013 at 3:13 am

          Where do you find all this info on the warrens?

        • Ayda August 2, 2013 at 10:48 pm

          That is not a brief history – its a personal opinion of one individual. History contains actual facts.

        • 42at42 August 6, 2013 at 4:46 pm

          History contains facts derived from personal opinion. Take any battle, there are three side to what happened in the battle. One side, the other side and the truth. Most history you read is one side’s version.

          Saying history contains “actual facts” is not totally true.

        • Sherene August 24, 2013 at 7:57 pm

          I believe all that is told above and if u don’t believe then why waist your time? Sod off and take interet in something u believe and leave us to it!!

      3. jen July 1, 2013 at 12:11 am

        It’s very real. I live up the street from the house n have been for 27 years. My best friend use to babysit in the house. you people are nuts.

        • Marva Veliz August 4, 2013 at 7:16 pm

          I’m very intrigued by all the paranormal stories and how people can actually live in a haunted house for years and deal with everything that goes on in a haunted house. You say you live up the street from the house? I would like to go to the house and can’t seem to find the addresses anywhere on the Internet. Is it possible to get the correct address of that house?

        • Sherene August 24, 2013 at 8:06 pm

          I would love u to share more of your storys plzzz

        • Sherene August 24, 2013 at 8:11 pm

          Was the doll I the movie apart of the real life avvents

        • Nick November 4, 2013 at 1:44 am

          It exists, but it doesn’t look anything like the one in the film. It’s a big Raggedy Ann doll… or Raggedy Annabelle I guess.

      4. Laura July 1, 2013 at 2:51 am

        I want to know why anyone would stay in that house for 10 YEARS if they were being terrorized so horribly ???? Why not leave ?

        • Kyle July 7, 2013 at 6:24 pm

          They couldn’t leave, the demon starched itself to the family

        • Kyle July 7, 2013 at 6:28 pm

          Attached**

        • Kate August 11, 2013 at 1:27 pm

          Why do people stay with abusive partners who terrorize them? In most cases it is not so easy to just get up and go. You may not have the resources or support.

        • kate August 11, 2013 at 1:54 pm

          As strange as it may seem, some people learn to live with a situation, adopt.

        • SDCLFC7 September 30, 2013 at 10:34 am

          They didn’t leave because it didn’t happen. They might have thought they were being spooked, thought because we know they weren’t, but clearly not bad enough to make them leave, and not bad enough to sell books. The truth is that simple

        • Billy Osborne October 5, 2013 at 4:32 pm

          The hard truth of all this is that it is all a money making scam between the warrens and the perron family.

      5. Julia July 1, 2013 at 6:36 pm

          OMFG, that sounded exactly like a dog flapping his ears while shaking, you guys are idiots.

      6. Bill G July 2, 2013 at 12:52 am

        In regards to the Amityville being a hoax it seems that the only proof of this comes from paranormal researcher and vampirologist Stephen Kaplan who expected to cash in on the story and was ultimately denied by the Lutzes. The other side of the story is that he had a personal vendetta and willfully defamed the story and investigation. I understand the rational skepticism as to the truth of the story but I have equal skepticism regarding the motives and truth of such debunking. I therefore can’t in good conscience agree with automatically discrediting the Warrens or the events in the Conjuring based on the truth or fraud of Amityville. Just a thought

        • jackiec2996 July 19, 2013 at 4:14 am

          Spoken perfectly Bill G…..I totally agree…each person has to draw they’re own conclusion on any given story….for me I always follow my intuition…

        • Jenn July 21, 2013 at 7:22 am

          Just to let you know, the lawyer of the Lutz family also came forward and said it never happened. He says they all came up with the idea together over a bottle of wine. The priest described in the book also denies the story ever happened. I think there’s even something about how the car they describe in the book didn’t exist when the family lived there. Not to mention that no one else ever had anything supernatural happen in the house before or since (the son who killed his family later admitted that he made up stories to save his ass), the Lutzes lived there longer than they said, and they didn’t flee in the middle of the night. They just leisurely packed up their things and moved out.

          I fully believe in haunted stories, but the Amityville story reeks.

      7. kXnPunk July 2, 2013 at 4:50 am

        Wow, extremely entertaining read this was. Thanks. I enjoyed it a lot and am so looking forward to see this flick.

      8. Jamie July 2, 2013 at 2:20 pm

        If you have had your own experiences wether someone else believes or not doesn’t matter. I experienced things when I was younger and I know what I saw and felt. I think it’s hard for people to believe because then they have to rethink their own beliefs.

        • john August 5, 2013 at 5:09 am

        • Jolene June 27, 2014 at 9:53 pm

          Growing up was never nice, seeing things, being attacked from possed friends to entities… People telling me they wish they could see “them”… Trust me, these things are real and no horror movie has ever resembled how horrible they really look, the conjuring does speak the truth though, from what these things do to how they do it.

      9. Jenn July 2, 2013 at 4:35 pm

        I totally believe in these things. I lived in a house that was part of a battlefield and all kinds of things would happen there. Not to mention the fact that my daughter from the age of 10 months when we moved there until 5 years later would play with a little girl named “Pam” and only she could see her. She also told us about bloody soldiers that came to her several times as well. I know these things are real.

        • Ranari October 23, 2013 at 3:48 am

          Because children don’t make up friends, no, they all see spirits. That’s it, no imagination involved, just good ol’ fashion ghosts.

      10. Kellie July 3, 2013 at 5:21 am

        @Stacey- It seems like whatever you’re experiencing is attached to you, not the location. So, when you move, it moves too.

        • mszoey July 16, 2013 at 3:55 pm

          She could also just be a light for attracting ghosts/spirits and such. I have had experiences my entire life. I have moved countless times and only one places had no activity. Some are just in tune to the paranormal.

      11. Dawn July 4, 2013 at 12:13 pm

        One person stated that people in this situation would seek help from religious leaders. Many so called religious leaders have not the spiritual gifts to deal with the supernatural and will ignore any claims. My daughter used to see spirits in her early childhood. When they started scaring her, I turned to my church. My pastor told me she isn’t supposed to see such things, and told me to cleanse my house with annointed oil. But that was as good as it got. No inquiries, no visitation to my house or my child, just a hope that I never mentioned it again.

        • Tiago July 5, 2013 at 2:45 am

          I don’t believe in spiritual leaders, or gifts. Other than the Lord Jesus. Your pastor is very miss informed. The Bible deals with those kind of situations, and has all the answers you may need.
          Thats what I believe in, anyone else is free to believe in anything else that may help them.

      12. CASPER THE FRIENDLY GHOST..L.O.L July 4, 2013 at 9:29 pm

        The warrens were also involved in the amityville hoax. I wouldnt believe any thing that they are involved in…

      13. Marcella July 5, 2013 at 12:00 am

        Although I’ve been fascinated with the cases they’ve been involved with Amityville was never clear in my head as being real. Now years later with new information coming out it was uncovered that George Lutz was practicing or dabbling in the occult without clear how to info and in my opinion that invites very bad things in.

      14. Roxann July 5, 2013 at 11:20 pm

        I have no trouble believing in the supernatural, the Warren’s are another story. Read an honest biography of them and their “credentials” and decide. EVERYTHING is a demon to them and according to them even having books and music in your house “invited” demons. I’ve been happily scoffing them and their methods for 40 yrs. While alive Jim could not decide what he was… traveling artist, minister, paranormal investigator, His wife faithfully parroting every word. I don’t think any haunting they were involved with was in any danger ….

      15. Roxann July 5, 2013 at 11:25 pm

        I don’t understand how people believe in God and angels but never believe in the evil in the world. Even God believes in the devil and demons.

        At 56 seconds something moves extremely fast from the right to the left. It looks like it comes out of the current owners neck. No BS.

      21. jolie July 9, 2013 at 5:01 pm

        my boyfriend saw 2 ghosts in his life. He sees things that normal people wouldnt see. He proved to me that ghosts exist by taking me to the actual place that he saw the ghost. I experienced a heaviness/thickness in the air there, like an oppression and i felt someone was telling me to get out. I saw a mist in the air and smelled a stench worse than dead flesh. You have to experience the paranormal before you can believe it.

        • POL October 16, 2013 at 3:26 am

          jolie And how are you familiar with the smell of dead flesh???

      22. Raven July 9, 2013 at 5:52 pm

        @bbjruelas…What film are you referring to.

      23. MissG July 10, 2013 at 8:22 am

        If you don’t believe in the Warren’s, go speak with Lorraine Warren herself. She’ll show you a place where they have kept demonic pieces from investigations from the past that is being held in a safe place.

        • Prickly Elevator Music August 1, 2013 at 5:13 pm

          And? What does that mean?

          First of all, going to “speak” with Lorraine Warren is not just something easily achieved, let’s be clear. Secondly, I was thouroughly amused by you stating that Lorraine has a “place” where her and Ed have kept “demonic pieces” from investigations & that she holds them there for safe keeping. A N D?

          Girl, don’t you know YOU can do that too? I can do that. ANYONE can take a rock, or articles of clothing, or ANYTHING your mind can create and think of & place that item in a “safe keeping” area & claim it’s from a “investigation”. The fact that you placed so much faith & trust on that, which is absolutely nothing whatsoever and proves nothing whatsoever, tells me that you’re a bit on the naïve side.

          Perhaps you should up your expectation game when dealing with this type of topic. If that’s ALL it takes to convince you, then you really and truly are gullable. No offense.

          The place that the Warren’s kept the “demonic” items is now in the hands of the “Haunted Collector”. The guy is Ed’s nephew. If you have ever seen the show Haunted Collector,you will see he is about as trustworthy as the Warren’s. This guy goes into peoples houses and etc. just looking for stuff to walk out the door with! Even if the piece really means something to the people. He took one womans dead mothers jewelrey box! So as far as anything to do with the Warrens or “Haunted Collector”,I couldn’t believe one word they said. But I would love to read the three books written by the woman who lived in the house.

        • m l August 11, 2013 at 3:44 am

          Just for the record,I am not doubting what these people went through. I am only doubting anything said by the Warren’s.

        I am a paranormal researcher and have been in 100s of homes with paranormal claim. Paranormal means unexplainable and what people experience is just that. The experiences as investigators tells us something is going on but not ready to rule it as a haunting. There is no way to prove it as of yet. The movie trailor may seem a little extreme and of course they have to make money however i do agree that something maybe going on there. http://www.paranormalinvestigatorsofboston.org

        I have the perfect solution, hire Ghost Hunters from syfy.

        • OutlawDJ July 12, 2013 at 5:50 am

          Syfy’s Ghost Hunters are considered a bigger joke than the Warrens. They fake everything they do. Roxann is correct, the Warrens are demon-happy. If a floorboard creaked in an old house it was caused by demons. Ed was a showman, pure and simple. He made his money selling books. I will admit that the man was a talented writer of horror. Unfortunately, he passed his stories off as nonfiction. Also, the Amityville case has been looked into by quite a few investigators, and the vast majority say it was faked. Even the author of the book admitted that he and the Lutzes made it up. They got into a mortgage that was way beyond their means and used the story to get out of it without going bankrupt. While there is lots of weird sh*t that goes on in the world, the Lutz house in Amityville was not one of them.

      26. Joann Langlois July 12, 2013 at 12:13 pm

        I grew up in this town and went to high school with Andrea. She used to tell me about the things that were happening in their house – that they were being physically assaulted by whatever was there. I had no reason not to believe her. Years later, I heard a radio program about paranormal researchers who went into their house and recorded the things that went on.

      27. lavuntae July 12, 2013 at 2:30 pm

        You have to experience this event in order to believe it I sure these people aint making it up why would they say it if it aint true you always could tell when a person is lying.

      28. Ashlyn July 12, 2013 at 4:44 pm

        People need to understand, that there is more to life then the physical world we humans are living in right now. These paranormal activities that go on are very real. Whether you have experienced ghosts, spirits, paranormal activity etc or not, it is real. I’ve had experiences myself and know plenty of people who have also. Fear is the basis of why people are in denial and claim everything paranormal as fake or a hoax. Yes there are plenty of people who make up fake stories but really who are you to decide what is real and what is not. I love skeptics, because when something paranormal happens to them- their life/perspectives change forever.

        When I was about 7 years old, I was living with my mother, grandmother (Granny), an aunt, and my grandpa in a very old small house in Texas. The house was like a doorway to Hell. My entire family and myself saw many strange things, smells, sounds, and hundreds of terrifing nightmares while staying in this house. I lived there for about 4 years, and moved to Louisiana.
        Once I was grown, I was going to contact a paranormal group to go and investigate the house. My mother absolutely forbid it. She said that everyone would not believe us and would never let us rest or give us piece. She was right. If people never go through something like this, then they say that it’s not real and we made it up. Well, it is real, very real. I pray and believe in God, who keeps my family and I safe.

        These things, paranormal things, do take place. When I was young, about 5 or 6, I moved in with my grand parents in north carolina when my mother died and I experienced all sorts of things. It’s the scariest thing I’ve ever gone through. Not that the spirits were evil, they weren’t bad. I only experienced 2 spirits. It’s just.. Them being there, hearing things, that’s the scary part. I moved as soon as I was old enough just to get away from it. I moved when I was 18 and ill never forget the things I heard, and saw.

      34. Lauren July 15, 2013 at 4:41 am

        Ever since I experienced the paranormal events in my old home, I became obsessed with anything paranormal. I actually traveled to Ireland just so that I could go to the most haunted castle in the world.. It’s called Leap Castle.. It’s strange how I was the only one who experienced anything paranormal in the castle… I think it’s because I experienced paranormal events before I went to this castle, and the other people that came havent. I heard a little girl named Emily. She died from falling off the top of the castle. I also felt something touch my leg when the owner of the castle was telling us his experience. I believe that there’s life after death. I believe that some people die, but aren’t done living quite yet.

        I went to high school with the Lutz daughter when they moved to AZ and that stuff really happened to them.

      36. malinda July 16, 2013 at 3:01 am

        My family has been experiencing very, very odd things. I am 36 yrs old and this stuff has been going on all my life. Just the other day, something knocked on my fathers door and my 3 yr old opened the door immediately after the knocks and no one was there. Then around 5 mins later the doorbell rung I was standing right beside the door and i opened it and no one was there. A few weeks ago sumthing attacked my 16 yr old neice and ran her frm her home. I went to pick her up and me, my daughter and my niece saw this dark shadow walking back and forth passed the picture window. In my dads house the doors constantly slam, the pictures will literally jump off the wall and land straight up in the middle of the floor, the floor shakes, banging on the walls, tvs and lights turning on and off, sounds like dishes are being thrown across the kitchen I mean all kinds of things. I remember a incident involving a Ouija board a long time ago but that is a entirely different story. For those ppl who dnt believe, come and spend a few nights with my family. Your life will never be the same. And dont say move bc I moved into my own place with my kids, same stuff happened, my dad moved, same thing, my sister and her kids recently moved, same thing, my oldest brother moved to another state, same thing and my other brother moved to a different city and the same things still happened.

        • Trish August 9, 2013 at 7:09 pm

          There are ways to stop the hauntings if they follow you when you move. A lot of it has to do with what and why you are being contacted by these beings. I have always crossed paths will unusual experiences that even on occasions I have had witnesses to. This doesn’t bother me at all. I just don’t want everything and anything coming into my home, which I have learned how to manage, so there are ways to handle it if you want to. Life is a lot more complicated than most people are comfortable with.

        • malinda August 9, 2013 at 9:39 pm

          It doesn’t bother me anymore but it freaks my kids out sometimes. It happens randomly. I have noticed that these occurrences happen more frequently right before someone in my family passes.

        I remember a house tht we use to live in a long time ago. It was the creepiest place and it was right across the st frm a church. One day my mom was washing her hair and something grabbed her by the back of her neck and held her face down in the sink full of water. It was so cold in there and her feet were actually up off the floor and she was kicking and swinging her hands. Me and my dad grabbed her legs and tried pulling her with no success. Then all of a sudden she jus hit the floor. It let her go. Another incident i remember, in the same house, my father was laying on the couch and out of nowhere him and the couch were thrown across the room and the screen door flew open so hard it came off the hinges and our dog flew across the yard. Whatever it was it was a hostile spirit. We later found out that ppl had died violently in that house.

      39. Kayla July 18, 2013 at 10:11 pm

        You can discredit the Warrens all you want, and call them “demon-happy..” But they ARE the grandfathers of the Paranormal field. They’ve made ground-breaking discoveries and created some of the modern day investigation methods that most investigators use. So, before you start completely disrespecting them, how about you thank them for making this field what it is? They also trained their NEPHEW John Zaffis, who is also HIGHLY respected in this field. They’ve done many great things for paranormal sciences. So how about showing them some appreciation?

        Amityville cannot be proven or disproven as a “hoax.” And the fact of the matter is that, demonic presence or not, there was a SLAUGHTERING in that home. There is SOMETHING going on in there.. But unfortunately, the house will probably not get a proper investigation because of it’s owners. So I suppose, the case is closed until then.

        And as far as TAPs and Ghost Hunters goes, whether you think they’re fake or not, you can learn A LOT from them. And you can personally thank them for making this field get a little more credibility and making this field as famous as it is now. Investigators don’t get laughed at or mocked as much because of the TV investigators. People finally realize what we are doing and that we want to HELP them. Real or fake, the Ghost Hunters team uses some very scientific and fantastic methods to get evidence. So even if you don’t believe their show, at least learn a thing or two from them. Their equipment and methods are top notch.

        Have some respect for the bigger name investigators. Don’t be such assholes. They do just as much, if not more, for this field than most people.

        • Jen August 1, 2013 at 2:07 pm

          Now considering Ed wasn’t born until 1926 and Lorraine in 1927 and the fact that groups like The Ghost Club-est. in 1862 and S.P.R (Society for Psychical Research)-est. in 1882 (both are still in operation today) have been researching claims since they were founded…It makes one think why you would make a statement that the Warrens are the are the grandparents of investigating, when the information is so easily available?…Another easy example would be Harry Price (1881-1948 ,whom some also question regarding his ethics) was investigating the Borley Rectory in the 1930’s and rented it for a year in 1937….

      40. bomblade July 19, 2013 at 3:39 am

        First, there is absolutely no proof (no video, no audio, no pictures) that haven’t been debunked, when given the opportunity to do so. I just told my gf after seeing the film, people that believe in the paranormal, in ghosts, in spirits, almost every one of them have at least one ghost story. The problem is very few people (and I’d say almost all that posted on here) do not have any grasp as to how the brain works. Especially how the brain works in relation to our senses. How it works with our subconscious. Its not to say that people who think something paranormal has happened are lying, they just don’t understand what really happened. Of course, plenty do flat out lie, but also, they exaggerate greatly. So many people who claim to have been involved in hauntings and it gets any press, are found out to be part of a hoax or some way to collect money. To make a statement like “you have to experience it to believe it.” is very flimsy. I could say that God talks to me. Oh, you don’t believe me? That’s just because he’s never talked to you. I could also say that I fly. Not when anyone is around, and I can’t fly when a camera is on and I am invisible on film while I fly. But I do fly.

        I’ll reply to Kayla just because her post is visible right now. Ghost hunters and whatever other tv shows there are, are not investigating anything. They’re “looking” for ghosts. Investigating means you have an open mind and are open to all explanations. The Warrens clearly were not interested in any other explanation other than the one they wanted everyone to believe. This high tech equipment that they use does nothing. They do not capture anything. I’ve watched that show a couple times and each time it consists of the following: a backstory on a place that had death and is now haunted, a dark room and night vision goggles, someone saying “did you hear that?” and running with shaky camera. Sometimes someone saying “what do you want?” or something similar. Them telling the audience or each other, “did you see that over there?” But miraculously, a camera never picks it up.

        We are living in the age of smart phones and tablets and cameras constantly running. How is it that not one person has captured an actual image of a ghost or spirit, or demon or angel? Oh, I know that you’ll say they have, go check this page out or go look up this. Those aren’t evidence, those are fakes most of the time. Those are a back flash or some other defect in the picture. They easily recreate all of these supposed images with the exact methods that they claim the hoaxer or even the accidental.

        • tchaser July 22, 2013 at 5:06 am

          Well Bombade . It is very easy for someone to be skeptic when you have never experienced a true possession and exorcism . It was the most horrific thing my family has ever had to face. It has been five years since the demonic possession of my daughter in-law . Though the images will forever be imprinted in my brain. I still sleep with a light on.

        • bomblade July 23, 2013 at 2:41 pm

          Well tchaser, how do you know what I’ve experienced? Maybe I experienced the exact same “possession” or “hauntings” that the people on this board claim they have, but found the actual reasoning behind it, the scientific evidence.

        • Kramers7 July 31, 2013 at 9:26 pm

          bomblade – Basically what you are saying is those of us that have seen or experienced anything made it up in our minds. What if, and probably more to the truth, you too have experienced tings but your mind is so closed you will never know. How sad for you. I wonder what else you are missing in life.

        • bomblade July 31, 2013 at 10:31 pm

          Why do you assume that my mind is closed? As I just replied, I have experienced plenty of the same things others who post on here do. The difference is, I don’t jump to the conclusion that its some supernatural experience. When I see a bright object in the sky, I don’t assume its a flying saucer from Mars. The first thing I think is that its an airplane. The problem with those that believe in the supernatural go to that as the reason why anything happens. A door closes suddenly and its a ghost. It couldn’t be the window is open and the door is sucked shut.

          And most of what I have read on here is absolutely made up. Some of it is simply exaggerated to make the “weird” occurrence seem more entertaining or unexplainable. And some is indeed in people’s heads. When I read someone saying that they hear weird buzzing in their ears or voices, I don’t disbelieve them, I just think they should see an actual doctor.

        • Lana July 31, 2013 at 11:33 pm

          I agree with bomblade. I’ve had things happen, but I would always, firstly look for a rational explanation.

        • Trish August 9, 2013 at 7:30 pm

          Bomblade I get why you feel the way you do about what you have read. There are many people who will jump to a supernatural explanation for things and others who insist that there must be an explanation, but neither discredits or proves anything. I’ve experienced things that defy explanation, but I will not claim I know the answer only that no logical explanation exists that I have found. I will also say that in my travels I have learned that it is mostly North Americans that feel challenged by the plausibility of the supernatural as most other cultures have greater acceptance of it. Regardless of what you believe there will always be those with evidence that someone will claim is a hoax. My belief is reality is probably somewhere in the middle – those that exaggerate and those that won’t believe regardless of what they experience, see, witness or whatever.

        • anonymos coward October 31, 2013 at 6:00 pm

          agrees, some should look up temporal lobe epilepsy, god helmet instead. Electrical interference may give some validity for those “ghost”hunters in the sense that’s exactly what triggers that “religious” piece of equipment embedded in the skull. Though that’s not a proof of the phenomena not existing but at least do some reading thank you.

I will have noooo issues sleeping tonight at all. AND..as a fan of reality paranormal shows…am I THE ONLY PERSON that finds it peculiar NO “ghost hunter” EVER experiences ANYTHING as dramatic as what this movie portrays? and these folks spend their lives going into the most haunted places on earth geared to the hilt! Well anyhoo..I believe you would hafta be an idiot to believe this crap really happened.

        • Em July 19, 2013 at 10:25 pm

          You just demolished all credibility you might have had by saying you watch “paranormal reality shows”. That stuff is crap, and most of it isn’t real. & the beings depicted in the movie weren’t ghosts. They were demons. Any paranormal researcher will tell you that demonic attacks are far more aggressive, “dramatic” (as you say), and traumatizing than any “ghost” encounter. Do your research before you make statements that aren’t factual, and make yourself look like a moron.

      42. wraithlock@facebook.com July 19, 2013 at 12:42 pm

        I used to be a fan of Ed and Lorraine Warren, but after the Amityville Fallout, my faith in her perception of reality has faltered. Someone earlier stated that the Warrens helped convince the Lutz’s to lie about the activity in the house; that’s actually false. The story was fabricated between Ronald DeFeo’s Defense Attorney, Jay Anson (wrote the book), and George Lutz, to intentionally make money and to help DeFeo claim a better defense to lessen his sentence. I think anything the Warrens said was intentionally embellished to amplify the story, but if they would’ve said something, their credibility would be out the window. Fast forward to the next thing Lorraine Warren was attached to that was a major debacle; Paranormal State. The show was filled with teens and young adults finding more demonic possessions than even the Vatican, and it went under fire for falsifying story lines, staging “hauntings”, embellishing the severity of actual hauntings, and bringing in actors for their resident experts, (Chip Coffey = Hack). They would bring her in to episodes with a “malevolent” entity, and she would feel the evil in the house… those episodes were also proven false. I, in no way, am saying this family didn’t go through Hell with their story… just saying if this movie was from the Warrens perspective; take it with a grain of salt.

      44. Rich July 20, 2013 at 12:38 am

        I live a mile from the Amityville Horror house, & walk by it all the time. I’ve never seen or felt anything unusual, and a coworker is friends with the current owners, who say nothing ever happens except for people standing outside and staring. But I can’t dismiss what the Lutzes & Warrens said about it, because I have now lived in 3 houses that had unexplained phenomenon – thankfully, always positive.

        Growing up, my little brother would see someone out of the corner of his eye, & sometimes heard whispering. Once we found a spelling test with the name “Charlie” on it in our house. We put it in a safe place. Later, talking to a neighbor about the canal at the end of our block, my mother found out that the little boy who lived in our house drowned there. His name – Charlie. When we went looking for the test it was gone.

        As adults, first my brother and then I lived in the cottage where our grandmother died. When I told my brother that I felt someone sit on the end of my bed, we began sharing stories, & discovered that Grandma liked to tidy up. I always found dishes in the sink where I hadn’t put them. He had dragon themed knick knacks that he’d intentionally turn every which way, because he knew Grandma would always turn them facing front. She would also change the channel or turn off our TVs at random.

        When I bought my home, the day we first saw it, my husband caught a woman in housecoat & curlers out of the corner of his eye. He & one of our sons have seen her since. In researching our house’s history, I found out that a previous owner died in the house – an older woman named Annie. Is it her? I don’t know, but a month ago our youngest, who we never told about Annie, said he saw an old lady sitting in our living room knitting.

        We’ve also seen and felt what we thought was a cat, that curls up with anyone who is not feeling well. Planting a shrub in the yard we dug up a shoebox, and what do you think was in it? Kitty!

      45. ed July 20, 2013 at 1:31 pm

        I once had a spirit in my old house who would make us mean scrambled eggs in the morning. We would stay in bed scared to death, hearing pots and pan slamming in the kitchen, fridge doors, etc. Then suddenly, come dawn, the noises would vanish. We’d make our way to the kitchen, and sure enough…scrambled eggs…SPOOKY. It once told me, try them with ketchup. Seemed to devilish for me to attempt.

        I saw the film on opening day. I was impressed by the acting and implicit horror ala “The Shinning” and “Poltergeist.” The Warrens have been exposed by many people as a couple that profited from their experience as paranormal investigators. I won’t dismiss them as total frauds, but keeping the museum was definitely questionable. Why keep those items, unless they were adding publicity and profit from their experiences.

        Even if the film was exaggerated it was a good source of entertainment. I thought the first 40 minutes kind of dragged, but the warrens did savage the film in the final hour. I will give it a 7 out of 10, it would have been an 8 if not for the slow moving first 40 minutes.

        An incredible thing happened as i saw the film. When Warren talks about taking a picture of where the dead witch had hung herself the entire film turned red and we all heard some undecipherable jargon. We all thought it was part of the time, perhaps doing a flashback scene, however, the film stopped cold. First time in my entire life that a film stopped while playing. After a a three minute delay, the film was back on.

        Watch out for the real Ms. Warren’s Cameo while she attends a seminar.
        Those who like this film may like the series called “A Haunting” that aired on Discovery and now on Destination America. There were two film spin offs called “A Haunting in Connecticut” (good film), and “A Haunting in Georgia” (horrible).

A friend just recommend a book called “The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine Warren”. I just bought it on Kindle. It is very scary, but I highly recommend reading it to learn more about them. And yes, Sara, you left us on a cliff hanger! Please tell us what you saw.

        As a child, I grew up and lived in a haunted house for 7 years. The house was located out in the country. Our closest neighbors were about half a mile away. My brother, sisters, and parents all experienced weird and terrifying experiences there. One night, alone with my other siblings, we were all sitting in the living room watching television, and all of a sudden we heard a pounding on the house. It got louder and louder, and got to the point where all sides of the two-story house were being pounded on. We could hear screams from all around the house. We were scared out of our minds! Not too long after that our parents sold the house. We became great friends with the family that moved in. They also had bad experiences there as well. The house ended up catching on fire. Our parents rushed over with us kids as it was burning. All of us there could hear horrible screams coming from the house while it was burning. It was the most terrifying experience of my life.

        I just saw the movie and besides the cheesy Hollywood added effects to make viewers skeptical of if it’s true or not, I completely believe that those things have happened to them. It was amazing to see some of those things happening to them which have also happened to me, mainly in the beginning of the movie. I’ve woken up with random scratches, seen silhouette looking figures walk, have things pushed off of shelves, and voices speak to me since a young age. My family has experienced things too. Most think we are crazy if we share our stories to them, but I can’t deny it, the paranormal world is real.

        I stayed in a house with demonic spirits. Doors would slam. We were taking out our dishes upon moving into this rental home and the dishes flew out of the car. My soon to be husband kissed me goodnight on our first night there and the window violently slammed. My husband suggested we go to a hotel. We left and when we went around the block, we noted the electricity was on. Yet no electricity when we left. upon returning the next day to move out, one of our photos was warped. I did not want my fiancé to get my wedding dress out of the closet. He did. I was holding a special llardo upon moving to out apartment and when I got out of the car, it flew and smashed on the cement. We should of been smarter as the people we were renting from next door had winter clothes on their line, this was in Lancaster CA. They also had garlic hanging from their trees.

        Corvette-
        I just saw The Conjuring. I’ve never heard any scratching sounds or door slams. Do exorcisms really work? I was frightened by the Raggedy-Ann doll. That looked like the Chucky doll. This movie is similar to Poltergeist and Paranormal Activity. I didn’t know this is actually a true story. I thought these events only happened the movie ” The Conjuring”. After seeing this movie, I hope that I won’t have trouble sleeping tonight.

      57. Richard July 26, 2013 at 6:26 am

        Ghost Hunters went there in Season 2, it was called the Sutcliffe house. Several things happened, including doors that were tightly latched opening and closing on camera. It was the first Ghost Hunters show that had decent visible evidence, not just subjective experience. I agree that the Amityville haunting was a hoax, and not a very good one. The lawyer said he told the Lutzes about the Defeos girls bodies being in a room, and there were already flies on the bodies. That got blown up into the Lutzes story about flies infesting one of the rooms in the house later on. Even Jay Anson who wrote the book wrote to the lawyer and said “Tell the Lutzes to get their stories straight”.

        I was watching a show earliet today called Paranormal State. Idk if anyone on here has heard of the show but Lorraine Warren was on one of the episodes. I thought that was interesting. I had never heard of her or her husband until the movie The Conjuring.

      59. Jay Lichtenberger July 27, 2013 at 11:35 pm

        I watched The Conjuring Movie and saw that it was based on a true story that happened in Harrisville Rhode Island, so I decided to go check out the old farm house. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okCr61sYpsI

        Just watched the movie last night and it’s freaked me out…it does gave this eerie feeling which how a true story should be..
        Like many other people…i did experienced things on my younger days and i think what happened to me because of my mistake of dabbling on ouija board…im not sure why i would want to play with that stuff at the first place but it grew on me each time until i played it by myself alone and even went tru to my old house to played it alone..
        Until then..i got haunted by some spirits…started to hear things, sleep paralysis, slapped on my sleep…i even asked my ex gf to watched it while im asleep too…and she couldn’t agreed more that i was haunted..
        It took more than a decade for me for the haunted to be gone..whenever i went…i can get haunted..
        so just letting you guys know…that beware of the ouija board…it’s a nasty little thing with very minimalist magic words and you can activate the portal of demons to be unleashed..
        keep your child safe…don’t ever let them play that thing….

      61. fauxgoddess July 28, 2013 at 2:26 pm

        Pretty good movie, even though embellished with Hollywood antics! The first half was a bit slow, but eerie nonetheless.

        I’m a paranormal investigator; have been at it on and off for 35 years, really active over the last 10 years. I’ve had some pretty cool stuff happen: a Styrofoam cooler moving across the room with half-melted ice in it, knocking on walls in a hotel that was empty except for me and my team (all of us within sight), a tall heavy mahogany door slamming when it was only open 1/2″ (news crew was with us), but those are the highlights. Most investigations are boring and involve hours of waiting around, tests, measurements, etc. But when you do get some good stuff, it’s like hitting the LOTTO!

      62. Lana July 29, 2013 at 2:52 am

        We recently had something similar happen. It went on for a few years. We never dealt with it because it would always stop for long periods of time. It started with my 2 year old ‘seeing’ someone. A little girl who wanted to go home. I brushed it off. But then things got more physical. I found my daughter being pulled out of bed slowly, with her arms over her head, she was asleep. As I walked in, whatever it was, stopped. One night, I woke up because my daughter screamed. There was whispered chanting in an unrecognizable language in my ear. We got the house blessed as a last resort. And it has stopped now. It was the feeling of a presence that bothered me the most. The worst thing is, we moved temporarily, and I was having a sleepover, in the morning my friend told me I was talking in my sleep, but it was a deep, strange voice. No wonder she went to sleep on the guest bed.

      65. Vicki Havelka July 31, 2013 at 12:14 am

        I have yet to see the movie, but I am intrigued. I grew up in a “haunted” house. I have seen weird stuff. The thing is my great grandfather dabbled in “black magic” from the old world, he also slaughtered pigs for a living, go figure right. As a kid I was predictable scared living there. I don’t believe in ghosts. I believe in evil, I believe when some one dabbles in sorcery they’ve opened a portal for demons to enter. I’ve seen shadow people, objects float &I then crash, mirrors just shatter, cats hissing at absolutely nothing seen dogs growling &I barking at nothing seen, broken noisy toys just magically being working without batteries. We once had a weird dark green spot appear on the living room ceiling, nothing would remove it not washing nor painting over it it would just come back. This stuff is real. Nothing is more terrifying as a child. Of course being a child would heighten the experience non the less these things did happen and are real. My advice to everyone is don’t mess with ” magic”, oujie boards, tarot cards Ect. you are asking for real trouble with forces you don’t understand and that will mess with you, your family, your animals, generations to come or future residents of that house, property or establishment. Getting rid of demons is tricky business. They don’t just go away. Once they find a place they’ve been “invited” into, they are reluctant to leave. There is no such thing as ghosts, they are simply demons doing what they do best reeking havoc, mimicking a dead loved one to gain your trust so you invite them into your life, then they terrorize you. Be careful out there ghost hunters, your really hunting demons.

        Man I feel sorry for ppl who have to deal with this because things like this don’t happen to us black people

        • malinda July 31, 2013 at 1:32 pm

          I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this stuff does happen to black people. I am black and all kinds of things have been happening and still happens to my family. It starts out small then it becomes more noticeable and scarier. My toddlers and granddaughter keep seeing things and talking to people and when asked who they are talking to they tell us its deceased family members they never met or saw pics of. And the banging on the walls, pics literally flying off the walls and standing straight up in the middle of the floor. I wake up daily with bruises all over me. They don’t hurt but they look like someone has beat me in my sleep or I was fighting in my sleep. Only sometimes it scares me now. A Bible was thrown from the top of the tv in my dads house and it hit my 14yr old daughter right in the face. It scared her to death and none of my kids will be alone in our house or my dads house bc they are afraid. It feels like you are constantly being watched.

      68. Louise July 31, 2013 at 6:19 pm

        I have had many a haunting,so i believe in the Paranormal. I have lived in a house where i awoke one night in a cold terror,to hear scratching sounds.I woke up in unease and with a feeling of dread,why i dont know and never will,anyhow,when i eventually managed to switch on a side light,i saw that the wallpaper had scratches through it,finger nail type scratches.i went through all he rooms,but everyone else was in a deep sleep.this happened again throughout the week scratch marks through the paper and then it stopped,just like that.I could never get comfortable again in this house.That wasnt all,there was footsteps doorknobs moving on there own and strong presences,where you just knew something was behind you,or staring at you.I am writing this as though it was of no consequence,but it was terrifying at the time and i once ran out of the house and waited on the kerbside until my mother returned from her job,in this instance the dorknob had turned by itself and there was a very strong presence in the room,which appeared from nowhere. I have also lived in another house,where i woke up,and let me tell you that it is extremely unusual for me to wake up with a terror or foreboding,anyhow at the door,i saw a ghost,it was a tall slim man with a smile on his face,he looked at me,then turned and went through the locked door,then that was that,no more sightings here. I then moved to another house in a different country,here i heard knocking sounds comingt from a cupboard,there was nothing inside.I had very strong feelings of something standing by the bed at night,next to me,i changed bedrooms,which was better,but i went on to hear strange sounds outside the room at night,which woke me up.another thing that happened here was that a door opened by itself. I then moved to another part of the country and lived in a smallish residence,i have had all sorts happen here,windchimes tinkling at night without any breeze,taps starting to run water,sounds behind and under the bed,loads of strong creaks which you know arent normal,a bed that started to vibrate,a headboard that started to move,a feeling of something tucking me into bed,thumps,rattlings,doors opening at night,a circle of lights inside my bedroom at the window,and about 30 orb lights in the backyard,moving in patterns,one was circling under the window,and the others where following a pattern,before they all as fast as the speed of light disappeared,never to be seen again. I have also seen carrier bags levitating into the air,then dropping.I experience voices at times and most recently had a whistle and a buzz in my ear.some of these issues,like the ghost sighting and orbs where a one off,as was the vibrating events. I have had more,but these are the main events,so,well yes of course i believe in strange and unexplained happenings.I am lloking forward to seeing this film because i like the unexplained,but i dont know what makes th eunexplained happen,there might well be a good answer oneday.

      69. Nicole August 1, 2013 at 6:45 pm

        I saw the movie last night (July 31, 2013). Sure I love a good horror flick. My past fave was the Amityville Horror which is located in Amityville New York. I even went to see the actual house b/c I believed it was a true story. True or not true, I believed. Things are different now. Everything in this world is about money. Movies=money

        If there is no actual facts to prove the haunting or paranormal activity, I don’t believe it. Facts meaning real evidence from real people that I can see directly. The fact that a woman wrote a book/trilogy about what her family went through on her family’s farm is / could be, portrayed as a money maker.

        People do crazy things for money. They pretend they are paranormal investigators or whatever and they become famous.

        People like the money and the famous stuff.

        Not I. I will work and make $10 an hour for the rest of my life and I’m happy with no fame and no fortune. It’s all a bunch of b.s. to me

        I could tell you that when I went to the Amityville House back in 2001, I remember feeling very scared and spooked while parked and looking at the house. But duh, wouldn’t anybody who at the time believed in this haunting feel that way? Don’t read too much into it or do, if you like all that jazz.

      70. Killian August 1, 2013 at 10:22 pm

        honestly if i ever had a haunting and not just ghosts i mean a demonic entity, i wud never talk about it, it wud be a hushed family secret, i wudnt glamorize it with movies or books i wud be scared shitless living in fear each waking moment. words have power and talking about it wud in my mind make it worse.

      71. Killian August 1, 2013 at 10:26 pm

        But here’s the thing I believe the conjuring happen becus a actual police officer was there I believe, that’s what the movie showed, but if there was a cop eye witness i believe it fully

        Seen movie last nigh t and I believe hundred percent that this stuff happens all the time. I have experienced lots of paranormal things from seeing smelling hearing and feeling them I’m native american and believe that most spirits have unfinished business and soon as they get their message delivered and make sure living is ok with out them but then there is the evil whose main purpose is to do harm because they have attached themselves to a person place or thing.those are the ones I don’t like seeing.children animals and older people are more perceptive of seeing paranormal things. All these things use toscare me to death but I talked to the elders and they taught me a lot and I have learned to deal with it and it has become an everyday part of m isy life all I know is I BELIEVE

      74. Muchacho August 3, 2013 at 2:16 am

        Of course this was based on “true events.” So, where is the “real footage” of this important paranormal event? Ooohhh, it was probably was conveniently lost…Geez!! My mom still has footage of me pooping in my underwear when I was a child that I wish it was lost. If I had footage of a ghost, UFO, that hot chick I had sex in college, etc. I can assure you I would have guarded that footage with all my life.

        Well I’m a Christian, so I very much believe that we live in a spiritual war. Demons and temptations are out there, being very real and active, whether or not this really happened.
        So if it did, it wouldn’t surprise me, and especially considering I had a Demonic experience myself when I was a teenager.

      78. pam August 3, 2013 at 10:23 pm

        Tell those demons to get out in the name of Jesus! They answer to that namebut you also have to be in right standing with God to utilize the power and authority He has given us over demonic forces. There is power in the name of Jesus!!!!

      79. Katie August 4, 2013 at 2:02 am

        It all depends on your experiences. You may not believe it, or you may. I know I believe in them. My friend and I stayed at a house her family owns. They have told me plenty of stories, but I wanted to experience this for myself. If you’ve seen the movie Wanderlust, you may know the house I’m talking about. The scenes where the nudist colony lives is the house that my friend’s family owns. I heard children laughing in the room above us, saw the door slam right as we were talking about it. When we were sitting on the roof, the fireflies were flickering normally. They would start to fly over the roof, and the would flicker extremely fast. They would fly off, and they would start flickering at normal pace again. As you walk into the attic, it smells like maple syrup. No one has spilled anything up there, especially since everyone is afraid to go up there. As we were sleeping, my friend heard footsteps down the stairs. We woke up the next morning, and the bed had been moved a good distance. The wardrobe wasn’t shaking anymore as we passed by. I believe in these things.. whether you do or you don’t, don’t judge someone’s story based on what you do or don’t know.

        Why put up a video and then have it say “private”?

        I cannot say if these folks are fakers or not. But I find it odd that the particular farm house is still there with more people living there. If that really happened, why not destroy that house? Tear the place down and prevent further folks from being harmed.

        I also find this museum of possessed objects a bit fake. If the objects are actually possessed by “non human spirits”, why not dig a deep bunker and bury them?

        Hey I saw this movie and it’s very appealing…although i have some questions
        1) Well since you also had a fair share of experience of the spirits, what did you feel when you sort of encountered them?
        2) Secondly, i just wanted to ask where can I get the story or any description of the family who lived there before you? Also any info on that witch

      85. eldrinlanister August 5, 2013 at 6:22 pm

      88. Meepling August 6, 2013 at 8:41 pm

        My family lived in a haunted house before I was born. The house that I was born into was also haunted. And guess what? The house we moved into after I was born was also haunted. Which means that whatever was in the first house followed us to the new one. I’ve experienced a few things and so have all my family members. Naturally people who do not believe, have not experienced the paranormal. Wait until you do, and then you will have people not wanting to believe you.

        • Moperator August 7, 2013 at 1:09 pm

          Care to show any proof? I mean, if they were haunted for such a long time and the ghost even followed them, I don’t think it’s too much to ask for…

        • Meepling August 7, 2013 at 5:53 pm

          No proof unfortunately. I grew up in a poor area so we didn’t have cameras etc. to record anything. My sister was oppressed when she was a baby and it is harassing her to this day. That’s the one great thing about growing up in the information era. Everything at your disposal to record evidence of hauntings.

        • Trish August 9, 2013 at 8:04 pm

          Um, I was never expecting the things to happen to me when they did, so I didn’t have a camera to whip out and get proof except on one occasion, but in that case a video would have been more effective. I should say I really don’t care if people believe it or not and I don’t plan on carrying devices on me at all times in the event something should happen.

      89. Rebecca2583 August 6, 2013 at 9:38 pm

        Even though the director had “taken some liberties” in depicting the true story, could you spend your hard earned money and buy a house such as the one The Conjuring is based on? I could spend the night, but not purchase it as my primary home.

      92. lia86 August 7, 2013 at 4:25 am

        From the other part of the earth, after i read this article about supernatural phenomenon happened in America, now i can conclude that the same things happen in my place too. But in Asia, a lot of people still believe in the occult and ghost, so when we experienced anything supernatural, they will believe it.

        In my old house, when i was a child, people often heard someone sweeping the floor before dawn.

        Actually my mother is a pretty sensitive person, she is in touch with spiritual worlds since young. She often sees ‘things’. Once like a mist, sometimes in a form of shadow, sometimes they flash in ghost form passing by. When she just got married with my dad, because of my dad’s job, they need to move to another province. They rented a house there as a newly weds. There, she experienced a bad spirit disturb her at night while she was sleeping. Later, they found out from the gossiping neighbors that the owner of the house loved to practice ‘black’ magic and the previous person who lived before them in the house, died because he got a terrible illness there.

        Lately whenever she mentally/physically dropped, she got prophetic/telephatic dreams. It’s not only a ghost/ evil spirits she’s ever experienced with. It’s the same with holy spirits. My family rarely go to church~ But there was time, she routinely went to church with her friends. During the pentacost day, she felt wind filling up the church hall and someone touched her head. After she back home, she told me about this. Yep, i learned in school that pentacost day is the day where holy spirit descended.

        A fragrance smell indicating the appearance of the spirit is a common believe here. Once i have experienced it very clear, it was a smell of incense between the kitchen and the dining room. My mother, my little brother, and I could smell it. The weird thing was that happened only on that certain area (1 meter range). My mother warned me before not to burn/lit any aromatheraphy because just like incense, it makes them come. Of course, i didn’t believe it at first, i use aromatheraphy for relaxation purpose not to worship any supernatural things. Why should i be afraid? …It didn’t take a long time before i swear I would never lit aromatheraphy again in my room. Somethings indeed happened. It took months before i didn’t sense that something again.

        Also i remembered, when my dad underwent a surgery.. and we were waiting for him. The door beside the operation room suddenly got slammed open so hard (there was no wind). Since my position was the nearest to the door, i walked to that door intended to close it. Behind that door i could get a glimpse of the operation room. So in curiosity, i wanted to take a peek of what happened inside… but the door slowly closing down on its own, it was so heavy i couldn’t push it back.

        And an odd occurance in my city where i am living, that sometimes any local residence can hear the sound of marching band before dawn. You can ask any local residence whether they have ever heard the sound when they were still half-asleep. It has happened since the old time, my grandparents’ generation, my parents’ generation, and my generation. My friends has heard it. I started to hear it when i was on 4th/5th grade. People said it was the ghost of those soldiers who died on the war before 1945.

      95. Laureen Locke August 9, 2013 at 4:24 pm

        The Conjuring is by far one of the most exceptional horror films I have seen in a VERY long time. It was extremely well done and the fact that it’s based on the horrific events that the Perron family faced in the early 1970s truly adds to the ‘wow factor’!! (Not that I’m in any way taking pleasure in the terror that you and your family must have experienced, Andrea.) I only wish that more horror films could be made in the same vein as was this one. I literally shivered more than once while watching! (By the way – this is a cool site…)

      96. Trinity Selvia August 10, 2013 at 10:44 pm

        I’ll tell you i saw the movie and the thought of demons scared the shit out of me

      97. J August 11, 2013 at 12:28 am

        I enjoy reading all the comments. Lol. Anyway, my opinion is I BELIEVE that there is demons and devils out there and therefore I also believe that there was something going on at the farmhouse.. But I have DOUBTS with Ed & Lorraine.
        FIRSTLY, I know there are people who are able to see things other people cant see, like Lorraine. But in the movie (The Conjuring), there was a scene where Lorraine said to the mother of 5 daughters (sorry I forgot her name), when she touched a person, she can feel and know what that person had gone through. In that scene, Lorraine touched her and by that she knows that the mother had went to the beach with her family when the mother didnt even tell her. Here, I dont understand. Do human have such kind of ability or ‘power’? SECONDLY, the part where Ed asked (shouted) to the demon inside the mother’s body to go back to HELL. The weird thing is, Hell is never exist or have not existed yet, for now. Because when people die, the soul will ‘sleep’ (not exactly sleep) till the day of judgement, the day where Jesus will come for the 2nd time. And after all the righteous people or the chosen people have been risen up to Heaven. ONLY THEN, the Earth will be called HELL with the ‘leader’ Lucifer and other people who have taken their back on Jesus and never repent. (To know more about what happens after that, read the Bible, Revelation.) Back to the story, the demon got out from the body anyway because of the name of Lord.
        So the conclusion is, I believe what had happened to the family is true but not quite sure about what the couple did. So I will say that the Story or the movie The Conjuring not exactly a 100% based on true story. But it was indeed a very well done movie. The fact that how the director made it to a movie, it’s a very hard work you know? But anyhow.. there are still doubts about Ed & Lorraine though.. Just expressing my opinion. I hope there are answers for my questions ;)

        my name is Zaigham i am professionally a military pilot, i have been to paranormal activities when i was a 5 years old child.. i used to see evil things scaring me talking to me in different languages , which i never could understand .. most of the times i cud hear voices strange screams but no one other then me could ever hear them.i saw snakes flying right over my head it sounds funny but yes that scared me too much, i saw anaconda moving outside my window, faces and so many other things. i was a child i never knew about such things .. my mother went to religious people everyone said that ur child is under some black majic or .. she never believed . but one day she tore my pillow and where she found inside was a piece of paper writing something in it.. and few symbols.. she burned it and did some religious things i dnt knw.. i have told my stories to many people most of the time people dont believe me but my family. now as if im a well educated and mature guy i often think about those incidence and ask myself why that thing was behind me.. it never wanted to hurt me.. but yes some times it really did scare me .. i have come to conclusion tht wtever they do they never could touch me but more around and showed me their presence.!!! they are real whether you believe it or not!

        All the talk about the fakeness of true story movies; remember they have to change things. Like leave things out and add things and maybe even change even change something of detail. For the purpose of things like copywrite and stuff like that.

      106. Kerrytopel@yahoo.com August 18, 2013 at 9:41 pm

        I have a very different paranormal story to tell. I have never experienced a haunting, seen a ghost or anything. But back in the 70s, my husband used to bring people back to our apartment all the time that he met at college and one time, this fellow came home and my husband went to grab something from the store. I had a baby sleeping in a playpen (pre-pack-n-play) in the room, and this guy is making small talk to me but at the same time I could “hear” in my mind a completely different conversation that was scaring the #$%& out of me. He could also “hear” my fearful thoughts and would reply! I don’t remember exactly what was being “said” until he told me he’d show me I wasn’t imaging it (telepathic conversation?): He looked over at my sleeping son, my son raised up his head and started screaming at the top of his lungs, the guy looked back at me, my son went back to sleep immediately and the guy was grinning and I was never so scared in my whole life. As soon as my husband came home, I grabbed my baby and locked myself in my bedroom. After he left, I told my husband NEVER to bring that guy anywhere near us again. My husband usually scoffed at anything paranormal or of faith, but didn’t question me on that and we never saw him again.

        Has anyone experienced anything like that? It was so long ago, I began to wonder if it really happened, then I saw an exorcist interviewed on a show who described the exact same encounter and called it “possession by invitation.”

      107. sara. p August 20, 2013 at 11:27 pm

        YES, I have a familiar story but firstly that ‘guy’ was possessed by a demon/jinn (whatever you want to call them) and that was his demon grinning and communicating with you . I have been possessed for the past 7 years and God only knows what he has put me through physically and mentally but thanks to the love of my family and me researching constantly I was finally able to accept that he Is real and I am not crazy. I cannot even begin to tell you my sudden complete hatred and fear of God and religion and my husband (who I was convinced smelt of rotting meat) and the movements and jolts in my body, the twisting of the hands and feet, the complete disgust and anger I felt when I heard the call to prayer, the satanic words coming out of my mouth and the deep gravely mans voice that was shouting and screaming at my beloved family members who were initially shocked at the time but learnt to deal with ‘Harris’ as he calls himself. What breaks my heart is the thousands of people who are locked up in institutions when they complain of ‘voices in their heads’ and are not given spiritual treatment first.Ok, I realize that there is genuine mental illness BUT there is also possession.There is too much evidence for the paranormal that science cannot explain. Mental illness does not make you want to ONLY rip the holy books, fear Gods words(whatever your religious beliefs), vomit blood when religious texts are read and blown on a person, run or hide when an exorcist comes near you. Science cannot cure this type of affliction only spiritual therapy can sometimes help unless the demon is particularly stubborn or strong in which case you have a long and soul breaking road ahead.

      111. Chucho August 25, 2013 at 8:01 am

        Hi guys, I’m from Mexico, and here we have a catholic church when they used to make exorcisms, I watch a few of them, and let me told you something, the movies are not even close to the things you see in a real one, you get shock, i mean i remember a little girl like 9 years old tie to the bench of the church, while the priest make the exorcism, she lift the solid wood bench , and start to speak in languages with a very deep voice, and when the Holy Water touch them they start to scream, like if instead of Holy Water feel acid.
        They said a lot of bad words and start to blasfemate, meanwhile all the presents needs to pray while the exorcism is made, the priest used to say that is for be safe from the demons, because sometimes they change the vessel who contain them, and if you are not praying you are an easy target.
        Well that is my personal experience.
        I apologize for my english, i hope you can understand what i try to say.
        Regards

        Demons exists . Don’t dare them…ever. I lived with a family member who was possessed and went through some unforgettable days. It was the most scariest time ever in my life. I would have been killed by her if God didn’t intervene. Just don’t mess (or even joke) about Satan. He is real and will retaliate when provoked. Hold on to God.

      115. Hannah August 30, 2013 at 5:31 pm

        I haven’t seen the film, yet, as I know for weeks I won’t be able to close my eyes without seeing the images (happened with every horror I’ve ever watched). Going by the trailer I don’t think what happened in that house would have been as extreme as the film makes it out, although I do believe it to be real. My dad died before I was 1yrs old and when I was little (around 3 and 4), I’d sleep with my mum in her bed, the room below was the same room he died in. The room above, my mums room, I remember 3 incidents happening in it. One (morning) was being able to see the closed curtains even though my eyes were closed, I couldn’t open my eyes but when I eventually could, the curtains were in the exact position with the exact amount of light coming through, but I KNOW my eyes WERE closed when I first saw the curtains. Another incident (during the night) was waking up after hearing noises to find a lump from under the covers. Although the lump was still there when I woke my mum, (it was like there was something solid under the covers), the noises had gone and the lump seemed to quickly disappear. A third incident (morning), I’d called out for my mum to pick me up from the bed to carry me out, for whatever reason I felt scared that morning, I heard a voice say something along the lines of get out yourself, or something similar. I know there is no way it could have been my dad as my dad was Serbian and this voice was no way a Serbian accent. After that I was so scared I wouldn’t go in that room and would sleep (in another room) with the lights on). Even now at 30 I have to either have the light from the telly to get to sleep.

        One incident my mum told me about happening to her, was that when she was arguing with her then boyfriend and he apparently he went to hit her with the cordless phone, my dad’s photo (which was wedged in the corner of a painting of Jesus) fell to the floor in front of them.

        I’ve never actually “seen” any spirits and hope I never do, but any house that I have moved to, or even if I stay at someone else’s house, I always feel as if something is there with me, and anytime I pray (whether out loud or in my head) I always find myself looking at the exact same spot.

        Can any one please tell me what did Lorrain saw during the exorcism that went badly wrong. Please it’s kind of urgent.

      118. Brent September 1, 2013 at 6:00 pm

        Good, Evil one can not exist with out the other. If all was good ; how would good be defined and
        what would it be compared to? same goes the other way around. So for all that say they are cristIans therefore do not believe in ghosts or possesions is a cop out for an answer. I state this because Christians already believe in the holly ghost, and I ask is a true religous person not possessed by the holy spirit ? and therefore have the ability to love anyone under any situation.
        Now one thing that is always over looked at in these stories are the known facts we already know. The first major fact is that as far as the Catholic Church is concerned they do not go running around performing exorcisims all over the place. Each case has to meet certain critiria before a decision is made. I would believe this would be the same for most religions. These decisions would be concluded on actual facts or proof and not made by somebody stating they simply have seen a ghost.
        Last question I will leave you with is: If this story and all others like this are fake then why would the Catholic Church and other religions have a procedure in place to even preform exorcisms in the first place. As belivers in God they would not run or hide from evil ; nor would they hide evil pretending it does not exist. In fact they would try to expose the evilness, resulting in the revolution of it’s weakness, then ridding it forever in our world.
        So take heed when you hear of stories like these and prep yourself for they day when you come face to face with evil, so let the Holly Spirit possess you and may that day you face the evil spirits not be the day when you are entering hell, foreverone
        No I’m not a religious freek, I simply thought of these words as I read the above, Maybe for a moment I became possessed by the holy spirit and was ask to spread the word of God ? Whichever religion that maybe to you.

      119. LittleKrystalHorrorMovieGirl September 1, 2013 at 11:03 pm

        Well, I haven’t seen this one yet. But might as well share my experiences.

        It all started on the Saturday before last Halloween. I was with my friend, watching a ‘Top 10 Scariest Movies’ video on YouTube. Scared the shit out of me, but my friend wasn’t anywhere near as unsettled. She has always been the braver one.

        I didn’t tell my parents, as I knew that they would be annoyed that we’d watched it. But soon after, things started getting weird.

        Every time I went to bed, I’d vividly remember clips from the video. However, I dismissed this as flashbacks. However, starting on Halloween, I’d start to hear noises at night. I told my friend how scared I was, but she said that she didn’t find it that scary at all. I told my parents that I watched the video and what was happening. They don’t believe in anything paranormal, so they told me that I was just nervous. I believed them (although the noises did continue) until one night shortly after Christmas.

        On Christmas Day, I looked up a trailer for The Exorcist. It was the scariest thing I’d seen in my short life and I was haunted by it. A couple of days afterwards, I was just going to bed. My parents were asleep and I was on my laptop. I tweeted “RT if horror movies scare the living crap out of you.” I put my laptop down and went to bed. That night was one of the scariest nights I have EVER experienced. I heard the door open downstairs and footsteps in the kitchen. Being the scared little twit I was, I couldn’t go downstairs to check who it was. Best case scenario – it was a burglar. Worst case scenario – it was a ghost/demon. And after my experiences, you can guess which option I was leaning towards. Believe me when I say I wanted nothing more than the night to be over. I literally thought that the house was haunted. Finally, I got up the courage to go into my parents’ bedroom (don’t laugh, I was barely thirteen and a lot more sensitive than I am now). When I woke up, nothing had been stolen.

        Another time, I was having a shower when my family was dropping my mum to work (she works nights). Before they left, I said that I’d have my shower while they were gone. My mum, who has seen Psycho, jokingly remarked that I should be careful that no guy burst in on me with a knife. When I went to have my shower, I heard someone coming up the stairs. Panicking, I got out of the shower and went to go on the computer. However, the electricity wasn’t working. A switch had tripped.

        In my holiday apartment, I was casually having a conversation about horror movies with my mum and my brother. And that night, I heard the footsteps again. Now, it wasn’t anywhere near as terrifying as that night after Christmas was. But this time, the whole flat was dark.

        Now that almost a year has passed, my friend (the same one who saw the video with me) has seen The Conjuring and she’s terrified by it. Halloween is coming up again. Now that I look back, these events were probably nothing more than results of my overactive imagination. Still. You never know.

        To be honest, I try to talk about it as little as possible. Whether I tempt evil spirits or refresh my own memory when I do, I don’t need that stress in my life anymore. That’s all. Hopefully I won’t get any unwelcome visits tonight.

        • LittleKrystalHorroMovieGirl September 2, 2013 at 5:46 pm

          I should also mention that my friend’s aunt’s house might be haunted. One night there were a lot of strange incidences occurring (such as the door and windows slamming shut, her aunt being unable to wake her uncle AT ALL) and, the next morning, there were recordings that her aunt and uncle didn’t take on her aunt’s phone. Anyone experienced in paranormal activity have any idea what this (and my story) means?

        Solution 1: Just move to Europe. No haunted houses, UFO sightings or alien abductions here in Germany :) Solution 2: Become an atheist. Strange that only christians seem to experience such stories in real life. Anyway… great movie!

      122. darkbrother September 3, 2013 at 1:21 am

        To begin with, I’m an atheist and I don’t believe in ghosts or anything similar to ghosts. However, when I was eight or nine years old, while we were at my grandmother’s, me and my nephew experienced something I now call bullcrap but then it was all scary.

        My grandparents had a three story flat and on its roof was a porch-like place with light and seats that we would sit & drink tea at night. One night, after we were done with our little tea party, everyone grabbed something off the table to take back into the house. My mom told me and my nephews to bring back what was left on the table. My little nephew took a couple of plates and ran behind them while the light was still on. You know those timed-apartment lights… My elder nephew and I took what was left and walked into the apartment and all of a sudden the light expired. We were on the roof and the switch was downstairs. We at the beginning weren’t scared or anything, we were simply waiting for someone to turn the light back on and no one did. We tried screaming into the house and tried making noise by jumping and hitting the concrete below our feet but no one heard us. Street lights and a little lamp were illuminating the place but into the apartment, it was still too dark for us to go downstairs back then. My older nephew was scared sh*tless and I was trying to comfort her by telling her how I learnt swimming, a funny story indeed. Then suddenly I felt incapacitated and fell on my back. I wasn’t able to move a muscle when I saw my nephew as a shadow figure over my head. I knew it was my nephew but what I saw was different. My sight wasn’t blurred, I was seeing crystal clear but it was as if the world around me was getting more distant and I felt as if I was flying around, not physically but mentally like an out of body experience. As I ascended into the sky everywhere got darker and blurrier. When the shadow came closest to my face it all got pitch black and I don’t remember what happened after.

        When I woke up the next day my nephew said she wasn’t remembering anything and she said we followed our parents inside the previous night and the stairs were never dark. But I still remembered what I told her to comfort her and everything that I thought happened. Either she acted like it never happened or it was just my imagination. This is why I enjoy movies of this kind, don’t care if it’s faked or not, don’t care if any of those events actually happened to the Perron family, sorry if they did but hey… I will always love me a well-made horror flick.

        duh !! others says that It is not True for us we will not be scared ! grow up people ! its like the government Telling us that there is no Alien but the truth is it does and the did that because im sure if they tell us about that we will freak to death and as same as to that !!!!

        There is no such things called ghosts but i believe The demons are real ! And i believe what everything the movie and story says. Moreover, i had experienced the paranormal in my house, it was really scary nights. believe it or not, i said the truth. Just try to open your mind and see the reality.

      125. Lucy September 6, 2013 at 8:36 am

        I do believe many “incidents” can be explained rationally, but I also believe there is something more in some cases, which cannot be explained in such a way. For instance strange events that took place in the mornings just before or after waking up are often sleep paralysis, a state of mind and body just between being asleep and being awake, being unable to move (a safeguard so we don’t sleepwalk while we dream) when there are still fragments of dreams “haunting” us even though we are awake. But I also believe in stories of exorcisms or items moving around on their own, and there is just no way to explain this rationally.

        I myself haven’t had experiences with hauntings, but a couple of religious experiences – for instance, when I was very little, for no apparent reason (I was very sheltered) I used to have countless nightmares, every night. I knew about god and angels (my mother is very faithful) but a few times I saw a very brightly shining figure that would prevent any nightmares from haunting me for awhile. At the time, I imagined angels with wings, so I never thought this could have been an angel until much later. I told my mom that I had seen the “yellow man” again. There was also the incident of the day I became possessed by the holy spirit, and since then my entire awareness of the world is changed, and I haven’t had a single nightmare ever in many years now. I’m not going into details as this is a bit off topic.

        My mother also told me how objects moved on their own, and the lights flickered on and off the night my great-grandmother died. I know she would never lie about such a Thing, it’s a big deal for her as a christian.

        In a nutshell, the spiritual world exists, but there are also many incidents that have nothing to do with it and just make for a good story at a campfire. And people DO exagerrate to get attention (or money) sometimes.

        Well,I say,dont take life so seriously,take all with a pinch of salt and do not bother with sceptics,what does it matter?At the end of the day,if you have seen a ghost or an alien,then you are gifted,does it matter so much,that you must prove to the rest of the world ? Either way.its a free world,Believe in what you have experienced,then let it be.or enjoy,whatever.

      127. TrueParanormalVictim September 8, 2013 at 3:02 am

        My parents witness genuine paranormal activity and continue to deny it. I would never let the “warrens” near my testimony due to their obsessive greedy nature and reliably constant over exageration of any story they dig up. There is a realm of what you can not see but to use it as a portal straight to your bank account is beyond pathetic. These “warrens” are basically taking advantage of and profiting from other people misery or the trauma these families go through. These “warrens” would never consider a ghost witness acount credible unless they (the warrens) had every right to bleed your bank account dry. Make a credible paranormal movie completely void of these types of paranormal parasites and you MAY have a chance to impress someone or at the very least, give your testimony.

        I am current owner of farm. Facts not one scene in movie is real even Andrea Perron says so no policeman ever no chunky doll no birds no chair flying on ceiling no child under boards no maid ghost no little boy dressed like pilgrim. Etc. name a scene. The video is now private done 11/2 years ago I did not know she put on youtube it exposed my name which s he was not supposed to do so it was taken down unfortunately to late to protect us from trespassers and thrill seekers for now over 3 months I am also following videos hearing lies about our home now. Ghost Hunters called us we never talked about house for 18 years so 8 years ago they called and asked to. I did not believe what they found because they repeated in show what I told them which was 15 years earlier funny it would happen again in one night they were here and The first 3 years everyone who came to visit would claim some experience noises. Finally settled down when we said to everyone we never believed that it was ghosts sounds do not prove anything. We have love this property since the first day we saw it been extremely happy here. As we learned the stories I did my own research never found Bathshbe was a witch or satanists. Lorraine claimed her to be demon and said her name came into her head. Bathsheba died of a stroke born 1814 dies in 1885 did not hang herself only claim I found was brother sued for a property claim. No murders ever happened hear Claim Prudence Arnold she was murdered in Uxbridge Mass used her because her name was Arnold no relation. House Is a magnificent historic 280 property. No other family before Perrons or after before us ever experienced anything. Lies are being told about them. I have met. Each family. Kenyon’s who sold Perrons farm were very angry about stories they felt it degraded their family’s history of having owned this farm since 1730 s. Warren said she would never come here and the house has evil which anger us. Considering. She visited 20 years ago and said she felt nothing because we were a loving family I had child care here for 22 years. Said other family was very dysfunctional I do not believe Warrens credible. One should research. Lutz and Weber confessed to hoax new family sued them and won for creating hoax that caused thrill seekers to continue to horrass. Smurl Haunted brain damage hallucinate. Haunting Conn. worst of all. Devil in Conn. Brother sue Lorraine for destroying their childhood claiming demon possessed them community tormented family. Much more. I hope this has helped readers.

        Well, I can’t read all of this because I have been for an hour or. Some of you are really funny but it does seem people do explain the unexplained with paranormal stuff. I’ll give you an example of what kind of skeptic I am. I learned how to manually astral project when I was 22. One of the cool things is that you can walk up to someone and hear/see what they are thinking. Then you can knock yourself out of the meditation and go confirm it. What’s fucked up is that I’m still not entirely convinced. My brain is smart as shit so it could very well just be extrapolating things…predicting the future using logic and reasoning. As an example, I went to sleep once and do all of my math and programming homework and I even analyzed my memory to see how far back I could remember (lucid dreaming) and I could remember everything. So if the brain’s that smart, there’s no way it couldn’t simulate a possible future scenario.

        Anyway, I’m on the fence about astral projection but after I do the whole career thing, I’m going to spend a lot of time investigating it if I don’t die of eating too many fatty foods first lol

        it does say it is BASED on a true STORY. What is a true STORY? It doesn’t say it is based on truth or real events, it states that it is based on a real true STORY. And Daniel, do you really think that sceptics are afraid of ghosts, and that is why they chose not to believe? I am pretty sceptic and I don’t fear these things, maybe that is why they don’t bother me? It says they feed of fear. ;o)
        Allthough one part of the movie struck a cord, the leg pulling, I experienced that for many years in my childhood, but that was in my sleep(I slept in the fetal position for a long time because of that) but I never saw a ghost.

        The video is set to private. I can’t watch it. I watched The Conjuring and enjoyed it. If it is truly real then I feel for the family. My entire family have dealt with supernatural experiences. Whether there were ghosts, demons or something else involved.

        The only problem here is, most whites are idiots and that’s the only problem the world still has atm. They do feel they are the best and most superior in everything and the funny thing is, they are just fools and that’s why they do get killed like cockerels almost every day.

      135. Juan Jose October 15, 2013 at 6:51 am

        A lot of interesting questions surface after watching the movie “The Conjuring”. Especially nowadays with so many movies entitled ” Based on a true story “. It´s like a You Tube epidemia where everybody has filmed a ghost, an entity and even aliens just to reach a million hits. In Hollywood its a million bucks.
        For instance I never get enough of laughter when I see and hear and read about years of investigating taken place and very little “ACTUAL” video footage is used or showed anywhere in the world……… and yet in the hollywood hits, just like on the web and the you tube phenomena in one night of filming or even a couple of hours one amateur video camera is placed at the precise location and time and the video footage is already in its glamour, scaring people, with so called “actual footage” in a couple of minutes of already non profesional edited you tube video. In hollywoods films…. a two hour so called documentary or based on actual events movie.
        So what is left to believe anymore????
        For instance, Texas Chainsaw Massacre was filmed after the gruesome discovery of events that led to the deaths of several people that shocked the world in a small town in Texas. Real or not, it was freaky because it was hot off the press. In the real world headlines. Then made into a top horror movie classic in its time.
        But then comes Amityville and others and well…………….. need I say more.
        The quick question about “The Conjuring” that comes to mind about this particular movie for me is only because of its reality. I mean, why wait til 2013 to make a great nail biting horror flick when it was almost at the same time frame that The Texas Chainsaw debuted. Why was there no press or video or even talk about the ordeal until just recently????? Dont get me wrong, I love the movie, but it seems to follow the movie “The Ritual” and the infamous “Paranormal Activity” storyboard.
        Why is there no re-make of this movie like other true stories. ” The Exorsist” or real footage shown like “The 4th Kind”
        Nonetheless, great movie that sends chills down the spine and fear of watching it alone at night. Great job and keep up the great work.

        • Eric October 18, 2013 at 4:23 am

          I agree with your post, but “The 4th Kind” was never true. That entire mythology was studio marketing. Nothing about that film is real, whatsoever. Some famous UFOlogist (is it even possible to be a famous UFOlogist?) claims that the director “stole” their researched accounts of several “alien visitation” stories. The UFOlogist states that the film director then bastardized their information into the film The 4th Kind. Personally, I don’t believe the director “stole” anything. I think he was clever enough to whip up a great campaign around his fictional movie to sell tickets. And no, none of the archival footage in the film was real either. It was all movie magic. You can find loads of information about the making of that film online. Regardless, I actually liked that movie – despite the bad reviews it received. It was pretty clever the way it was sold to audiences as a “true account.”

      136. Eric October 18, 2013 at 4:05 am

        Jesus. Do you know what is more terrifying than possession? The grammar used in roughly 75% of the comments on this thread. Have some of you heard of the objective case? Forget The Conjuring, research CONJUGATING. I truly hope that many of the poorly constructed comments are being tapped out on iPhones by under educated tweens. Otherwise, I pray for the souls of your English teachers. Nobody with more than a primary school education is going to take your accounts seriously if you can’t even articulate your ghost stories. What an insult to the author of the post. It is tragic, because struggling through some of the gibberish reveals some fun stories.

        • Kathleen October 30, 2013 at 5:43 am

          CONJUGATING???
          Isn’t that what happens during those conjugal prison visits???

        It was a good movie. That to me is the bottom line. I don’t care if they made it all up, at least it was better than most the crap they call movies coming out lately. Case and point

      145. Al Believe October 29, 2013 at 12:27 am

        I know everyone has an opinion when a sensitive subject about the unseen comes across. I know its hard to believe with a limited understandding due to the fact that it occurs to the victim and not to someone else. The fact of the matter is there are witnesses of these events and to have someone come in and say, “Thats not real. I want evidence”, those spirits are not there for you. Of course when the witness tries to give their story it all sounds like a bunch of made up stories from dreams and fairytales. A sceptic won’t jump to any other conclusions as it seems foolish. But then again why would someone make up a story about being tormented by a dark force. A lot of times the victims are so terrified they don’t want to tell their story as no one will believe them. There is torment in fear. From what I see there is no moral support from the human race when someone has a story to tell and need a listening, understanding, and loving ear to hear them. From my understanding many of these people that experience such horrific things will feel lonely, fearful, out of place, and trapped. But the unbeliever will make excuses for them because their experience and testimony isn’t evidence enough. Thats why the enemy doesnt show himself in that form to an unbeliever as he already has them in the blindness of their unbelief making the physicality of this world the only dimension believable. I myself have witnessed the dangers of this darkness and the realism of the spiritual world. You can cuss at me, put me down, degrade me and make excuses for me, i dont care. You weren’t there. I live my life not for the benefit of a mans understanding but to be an example of love and support to the suffering.
        At one time I hated God. I would hear my mother pray but i didnt want to hear it but I was curious. Why pray to someone you cant see? Was there a God?
        Eventually I did give my heart to Jesus but what made the realism of the spiritual world was when my brother woke me up one night and told me something was wrong with my dad in the next room. It sounded like he was trying to pray but couldn’t. So my brother asked me to check on my dad. So I got up and went to his room to hear what was going on. As I stood next to his bed he was writhing and trying to speak. I put my hand on hand his shoulder and shook him because i thought maybe he was having a nightmare. I said, “dad, are you ok?” I will never forget what he told me. He said, “Help me. Theres a demon on top of me choking me.” He said it as if out of breath and in a desperate tone of urgency. I was afraid a little bit but I got really angry. I put my right hand on his chest and prayed. When i did this my hand felt like it was on fire so I put my left hand on top of the the right so as to not remove it off my dad. I prayed and commanded that demon to loosen my dad. When my dad was set free he inhaled very deeply taking in fresh air of freedom.
        This happened over 17 years ago. My father and I can remember it like it was yesterday. After that I knew demons were real. Now why would someone make up a story like that? Again someone is bound to make an excuse for us by their “intelligible logic”. Nobody wants to go through something like that. Its nothing to glory over nor is it something to brag about. These are scary situations and they do occur wether you believe it or not. Other attacks have happened after that but we knew what to do. Thank you Andrea for sharing you story on film and in book form. When we entertain those things we give recognition and allow them to enter our homes but with a lifestyle of adultery, drunkenness and a life of selfishness my father allowed this into our house. The bible does say, resist the devil and he will flee from you. But when the enemy gets bold and attacks you to discourage you from following Jesus, what do you do? Jesus said “I have given you power over all the power of the enemy.” But we are not to rejoice because devils are subject to us but that our names are written inthe book of life.
        Thank you for allowing me to share. I do have a lot of stories on this subject matter including demon possessions from my experiences. Scientifically experts will say it’s depression, a chemical imbalance, schizophrenic, or of such medical term due to the symptoms that occur but being possessed can have negative results on the body.To the critic, Im not looking for money from a book deal or a film to be made. There is light and darkness. There is real evil in the unseen and they are studying our weaknesses, as all opponents do, trying to catch us in our vulnerable moments to attack us. Like a lion hunting for easy prey. But I also believe in the greatest power of all, the Lord Jesus Christ. Peace and love to all of you including the unbeliever and sceptics. If you havent experienced it, we pray you never will. It isn’t pleasant as others can tell you.
        Like I said, everyone has an opinion about it and you are entitled to it. Just show a little respect because many are scarred by such events.
        God bless all of you.

        I am a 52 year old woman, and I believe in God with all my heart. I also know that there are ghosts roaming this world, I have felt them and seen them. I can’t speak for anyone else but myself, but I know for sure that ghosts are real.

      147. Sudeshna Chakraborty October 30, 2013 at 12:27 pm

        there are full evidences that the story is true…
        because just like God exists, ghosts also exist…
        Or else the sum of good to the sum of evil wouldnot have been balanced…….

          No one read my article here post Sept 9 I am the owner of farm read please get facts straight the movie is total fiction nothing is fact our house is not haunted I told stories in the first 3 years jokingly can see it if one sees video 23 years ago no one except Perrons had ghost stories just like all the Warrens films only the families in film ever claim and all debunked research worse story in Devil in Conn. sues Warren for distroying his life 11 yr old demon possessed Warrens tells Perrons they have demons to a family with 5 young children you determine what that is called. We will be going public with all facts no murders or hangings or suicides ever on our property. No one only Perrons claim haunting and the use of Bathsheba Sherman name is a misuse of history of a real person No records ever found and she was a practicing Baptist no historical record anywhere saying she was claimed a witch or satanists which that term not used in 1800 America. Please research facts.

        The movie was very good but to be honest I doubt very much of it was true,Hollywood has a way of making even the most mundane events seem fantastical.

        Those of you who find credence in this type of medieval nonsense; open your minds and a book or two. Educate yourselves as to the facts. No matter how entertaining the movie may be. No matter how much they profess that it is factual. Understand this is false and pure FICTION, period! It all stems from the archaic teachings of the church and bible. It is based on pure faith that such “beings” actually exist. We have all had these teachings shoved down our throats for so long that we cannot distinguish truths from lies. The church and all religion in general have caused so much harm through the centuries. Even today religion is the number-one most divisive and harmful influence to world peace. Many have died defending their particular brand of faith. Instead of working toward our own education we are content to just sit back and allow our feeble minds to be filled with nonsense by those who want our hearts, our allegiance, and most of all… our money and property! It’s time for us to stand up and vehemently object to any premise that can only be substantiated by faith or ancient tradition, instead of actual unbiased evidence derived through scientific methods.

      156. For Real November 29, 2013 at 7:30 pm

        Unless you have had to deal with bad spirits, you really don’t get it. Its exhausting and just wears on you out mentally and emotionally. The growling, nightmares, tapping on the walls and the heavy feeling that just takes its toll on you! This kind of stuff took place in the master bedroom and the main bathroom upstairs! The rest of the house was ok except for a few small less tiring things. The only physical attack was my bathrobe over my face with a hand pressing down smothering me.
        It has pushed all 3 of my kids down the stairs, two who were skeptics of spirits being physical. They felt something push their backs. My daughter wont shower to this day in the main bathroom. When she goes down the hall and stairs at night you can hear her repeating “Jesus Jesus Jesus”! She is 16!There is much more but I really dont feel like getting into all of it! On a good note, we did find the source of what was going after me! It was attached to some very old radios, record players that was handed down to my boys from their grandparents on my husbands side! There is a good spirit that shared the closet and he talked to a lady who came over and all the stuff with bad stuff attached is now outside in a wood shed! Been good since and we acknowledge the good spirit who wakes us up at 4am if the closet gets dirty, kinda funny but we at least know why and what to do to keep George happy! We did a complete renovation of the main bathroom and we have seen a very tall man with a top hat on downstairs we did the renovation. My skeptic son said “did you see that”? And I was like YEAH. You can only be a skeptic if it hasn’t happened to you and like someone else said in an earlier post, “I hope it happens to you”, so do I if just for a day!

        To jackiec2996, I have studied the Amityville incident, and I will tell you you are wrong. The lutz family, namely George and Kathy (more George) did go through a few experiences. Not to the degree of the book or movie, but, a couple here and there. Minor things. They got together with an attorney friend of theirs, Weber, over wine. Goerge told of his experience, and Weber suggested to them to sell their story, and the gave them Jay Ansons number. That’st when the whole thing got blown out of proportion and became a best selling novel. Ed and Lorraine never entered the house while the Lutz family occupied it. They investigated it later, after the Lutzes left. The famous photograph of the boy in the doorway of one of the rooms of the house is from that investigation. Follow? Try to keep the info straight, please. And, oh, I research the DeFeo era of the house, as well.

      162. Feeney December 12, 2013 at 10:11 pm

        um why r people still arguing on whether or not this specific story is true? One comment had someone who shared a link showing an article with the current owner pissed about the bs this movie shows and she has also posted up here twice stating that it’s all bs. There was no haunting at that farm house, there was no killings or witch. I believe in all the paranormal stuff but this specific story is caked full of bs.

      163. Victor K. December 16, 2013 at 4:24 pm

        My wife and I just saw this on DVD last night, and we’re wondering why so many people are so hung up on whether it is a true story or not. The fact is that this film, on face value, is a really good, fun, well-acted, well-directed and well-written horror movie. It delivered lots of good jolts and scares, the acting was such that you actually cared about the family and about the Warrens, and overall, it was just very refreshing to finally see a a good ghost story in what is, in my opinion, the most difficult genre in which to make a good movie-horror. Seriously, horror is the only genre in which viewers go into a film looking for reasons not to feel the emotions that the film is supposed to evoke. Seriously, how many people go into a feel-good rom-com looking for reasons not to feel good?

        Anyway, hats off to James Wan who, in my opinion, is the best in the business right now in the horror genre.

        My 17yr old son WAS a non believer until he saw my deceased mother. We were @ my dad’s house, which my mom died in, just sitting in the livingroom talking about school and video games. Me and my other kids went to bed later that night. He was still in the livingroom playing the video game. He said he heard something in the kitchen but he didn’t pay it any attention bc he thought it was one of his little brothers. He said he kept hearing a sound that sounded like feet dragging the floor so he went to look and he turned the corner with the anticipation of seeing a sibling or his gpa and he saw my mom standing in front of the stove with her back to him. He said she turned around and smiled @ him. I was asleep n I heard him yelling my name. I jumped up thinking something has happened. He told me what went on and I was like that’s your gma, why would you be afraid of her?? He said bc she passed! All I could say was it’s ok she’s just checking on us. Didn’t go over very well with him lol but the feeling in the home was a loving and comfortable feel. The same way the home felt when she was alive

I have had Experience with this supernatural .. Then you have your good..the light of the Angels( Bible) I Completely understand why people don’t believe in this stuff .. Because they are scared..Or they never really experience anything at all..But u have your weak people and the demons feed off of them..All I have too say is there are Good and evil out there( all around us)

        The Warrens are well known for exaggeration and basically “bejewling the elephant” The next Conjuring film looks to be based on their investigation of the Enfield poltergeist, a case they were never involved in: I’ve seen Lorraine speak about ‘what she witnessed’ in Enfield, which is a total lie. I know people who were involved at Enfield and they don’t even know who the Warrens are. Ridiculous!!

      170. April Skutt February 18, 2014 at 7:12 am

        I grew up in a haunted house. My mom had a Ouija board and I remember having demonic spirits in that house. I saw things there like pictures dropping off of the walls, the doors opening up and closing by themselves, odd noises, apparitions, and strange smells. My dad got sick with cancer when I was 9 years old. The last year of his life was when the paranormal activity stuff started to increase. After he died, the activity got worse. I began to get marks on my back that couldn’t be explained. My younger sister didn’t have any problems with the paranormal like I did. However years later my mom remarried and my little brother began to experience some supernatural things. I left home when I had the chance. Though no one else believed me, I know what happened was real. I am thinking of writing a book about growing up in a haunted house. My experiences were real, although no one else ever believed me. If anyone else has ever experienced anything supernatural and nobody else believed you. I would. It’s awful when you are going through something and no one else believes you at all.

        Some people say that ghosts/spirits will only stay on the earth if they have unfinished business they need to take care of. But a demon stays in the earth tio possess a human so they can walk the earth again and escape hell.

        I was always fiercely skeptical about the paranormal but I saw some guys evidence on YouTube that has really broken my reality. If you search for Contact Mortis on YouTube and watch his video called “The dead shall rise” you will know what im talking about. With evidence of life after death like that im prepared to accept the possibility of ghosts now.

        .where there is darkness there is light. Demons do exist, if you believe in God you should believe there are demons among us. Weak minded people esp while under the influence of some substance your mind becomes weak and you can invite them in…its happened to me during my younger immature days. Ive had to sleep in my parents floor bc ive experienced it but im a Christian now I haven’t had a problem since with demons.

          For example I had come in late one night amd I was laying asleep in bed and im a light sleeper. I felt the cover slide off to the end of the bed I would cover my head and it was nothing but tugging. I heard what sounded like hell black figures were in my room when I went to jump up I was frozen I couldnt move It was like I was frozen or paralyzed It freaked me out once I could move I jumped up flew open my parents door at the age of 18 and slept with them all night.

          I have done drugs and it only opens parts of yourself that you shield from yourself. The brain has the capability to block certain parts and experiences, with drugs you can weaken that defense of your brain and parts of yourself are revealed to you, in a religious context you might see this as ‘demons’, but it is just you. I used drugs to reveal these parts of me so I knew what they were and keep in mind that I am also this. This way you are prepared when these darker sides of yourself creep up. You may externalice these feelings or you can just except that you are human with good and bad sides. )O+->

        Actually im confused.But to be logical you guys must think about why they found NSPR (new england society for psychic research).they are not mad to waste their whole life for paranormal investtigations.they must contain some kind of experiences.so Ed and Lorraine Warren are not hoax.they had said that they never get surprised when others dont believe them.there are things that we cant give scientific explanations.God is the question of science.

        I watched the film the other day and being a fan of James Randi did some research into Ed & Lorraine and quickly came to the conclusion they can’t be trusted. However that night our bedroom T.V came on all by itself (presumed the cat had stood on the remote although never done it before or since). This in itself wouldn’t have aroused suspicion but the time was 3:07. I am really curious as I’m not a believer or skeptic in somewhere in the middle (want to believe but need proof) and as such would never belittle or mock anyone’s view.

          you are one in a million. I would have to see that to believe it. Everyone said how scary that movie is. I watched it myself one day. It is only scary if you believe it’s nonsense.

          Problem is if you understood the truth behind the nonsense you would realize it is just that. When they said “Witches (Wicca) sacrafice their children to impress Satan.” I knew it was not real at all.

          1.Wicca worship nature gods not evil ones. They do not believe in Satan any more than I do as a Buddhist.
          2. Why would a dead witch’s spirit want to insult a god they do not believe in?
          3. Wicca if anything consider childbirth a GIFT.

        Honestly.. Everyone I’ve EVER met or spoken to who has EVER claimed “paranormal activity” was a really sad and lonely attention seeker. Usually prone to playing Dungeons and Dragons (as the story telling dungeon master) and somehow ONLY they ever saw or heard these things their whole lives.

        Let’s not forget Mrs. Perron had far more interest and absolutely must aggressively pursue her story because a trilogy and a movie need to buy Mama a new pair of shoes! Attention seeking and greed lead people who have “horror stories” to write books and sell their life story.

        People who actually live experiences such as these don’t want to tell their story, relive it, or make a book/movie out of it.

        • Dennis Eijs June 16, 2014 at 5:57 am

          A lot of assumptions about other people and how they will/(should?) behave.

      177. Dayna Gilbert June 20, 2014 at 4:15 am

        I think it is amazing the people think this is real. The movie says witches worshiped satan. The only witches I know are wicca. Wicca do NOT worship Satan. They do not believe in any Christian gods. That is one part where this story goes bunk for me.

        So then the concept that a witch spirit haunted this house and had more power or whatever because of that is ridiculous. Also wicca witches do not sacrafice children, let alone to a god they do not believe in. The whole concept of the movie is around that, so the fact that the family and “demonologists” are not saying anything about that makes me call bunk.

        In my eyes this is a group of people trying to cash in on their haunting and over exaggerating it. I do believe in ghosts, but I do not believe in demons as Christians see them. I also see this as a Christian propaganda, as it demonizes Wicca and Witches, while makes them seem pure.

        In ending this I am not Wicca, I am Buddhist, but I do not like attempts to be decieved.

        • Dennis June 20, 2014 at 6:21 am

          Well, whatever people worship is up to them. They make that decision, so when you have witches who say they worship satan, you have witches that worship satan, how ridiculous it may seem to anyone, maybe. So these were not Wicca but people who believed they could worship Satan. And since they worshipped Satan, they could sacrifice children. So this could just be wackjobs who thought they worshipped something and who knows how powerfull such an entity could be? So the thing is, it doesn’t have to make sense. Most religions don’t make sense, and yet power is derived from it. So it could be thet the ‘witch’ was an insane person that became an insane entity. Or it could be a complete hoax ofcourse.

        Read the books House of Darkness House of Light by Andrea Perron. The truth is far scarier than the fictional film. Conjuring was OK but what happened to Carolyn Perron and her 5 girls was FAR scarier. Read the books before making inane and ill educated comments.

        • Mackdown July 17, 2014 at 6:46 am

          I don’t want to hear stories put together in a book for profit, I want to see some real evidence. The Warrens were known liars and the current owner of the house doesn’t attribute any of the strange things to ghosts. The Conjuring was 100 percent fiction and so is the Perrons story

      179. robyn October 26, 2014 at 4:47 am

        The truly scary thing here is the poor grammar, improper sentence structure and the countless misspellings I’ve had to endure! Please, you guys, use autocorrect and/or some type of grammar check program. Sheesh!

        Not every poster might be a native speaker of English. Like me, and sometimes errors creep in.
        Besides that, read the Nettiquette about this subject. You are considered a rude person, unless the English is so bad that you really can’t make out what somebody is trying to tell you.
