But The Conjuring was based on another case.

These 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.

"The things that went on there were just so incredibly frightening," Lorraine Warren has said"It still affects me to talk about it today."

Reports of the haunting were big news even back then.

The 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."

And as the years have passed...

He told the Sun Journal that they witnessed "doors opening, footsteps, and knocks." He also added that he had "a hard time staying there by himself." "I don’t have the feeling of anything evil, (but) it’s very busy. You can tell there’s a lot of things going on."
