Horror is one of the most popular genres...And whether people like to admit it or not, we all love a good horror movie every now and then.
And one of the most popular horror franchises is The Conjuring.

For many, they're the pinnacle of '10s horror.

And that's not all...For those who favor a religious horror, the franchise also offers 2018's The Nun, 2019's The Curse of La Llorona, and two upcoming Nun sequels.
But, for horror aficionados, The Conjuring still reigns supreme.

But there's something that makes these movies even more frightening...

Here they are back in the day...
But The Conjuring was based on another case.
via: YouTubeThese movies focus on the real-life events of the Perron family, who lived in a farmhouse in Rhode Island in the 1970s which they believed to be haunted.
There are many claims about the spooky occurrences.

Reports of the haunting were big news even back then.
via: Daily MirrorThe eldest of the Perron children, Andrea, has recounted horrific memories: "I thought I was going to pass out. My mother began to speak a language not of this world in a voice not her own. Her chair levitated and she was thrown across the room."
