One of the nation’s most famous haunted houses launched on the Burrillville, Rhode Island real estate market on Thursday. The home as the horror movie “The Conjuring” was based on is now up for grabs for $ 1.2 million.
“Every once in a while an opportunity presents itself to own an extraordinary piece of cultural history,” the listing on Realtor states. “The real story of ‘The Conjuring’ began in this same house…. The critically acclaimed original film was based on the tales of the inhabitants of this fourteen-room farmhouse.
Like the 2013 movie with Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson and Lili Taylor recounting it, the property was the spooky home of the Perron family, who lived on the farm from 1970 to 1980 and were terrorized by the presence of Bathsheba Sherman, a woman who lived in the house in the 1800s.
The Perron family (both in real life and in the movie) encountered ghostly events so often that they had to enlist the help of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. The film had exaggerated much of the “true” plot of the film, which included saying Bathsheba was a witch who ended up murdering her baby, the Wall Street Journal said.
Current owners Jenn and Cory Heinzen, who bought the house in 2019, said they thought the house was haunted and since moving in they have tried to uncover the real story behind the ghost of the woman around which the movie was filming from.
“Bathsheba is a mystery,” Jenn Heinzen told the WSJ. “When we bought the house, we thought we would dive in and find out the real story. ”
Although she and her husband had their fair share of dating, neither were malicious, according to the WSJ. The house is still a hotspot for paranormal investigators, and the Heinzens hope the new owners keep that up.
“Many skilled paranormal researchers were invited into the house – the most famous Ed and Lorraine Warren, who founded New England’s oldest ghost hunting team, and in the 1970s were hired to clear the house. of his evil, “the list says. “The Warrens have confirmed that the events depicted in The Conjuring movies (the third recently released) actually happened. The current caretakers have reported countless events in the house and have turned guest bookings and group events on the property into a successful and stable business.
