Wednesday July 10, 2019 12:11 AM A Maine couple has bought a Rhode Island farmhouse that inspired the horror movie "The Conjuring." Written by The Associated Press HARRISVILLE, R.I. (AP) — A Maine couple has bought a Rhode Island farmhouse that inspired the horror movie "The Conjuring." Cory Heinzen tells the Sun Journal in Maine that he's heard doors opening, footsteps and knocks. He said the house in Harrisville, Rhode Island, is "very busy." The movie is based on the story of a family that lived in the farmhouse in the 1970s. The previous owners said the 1736 farmhouse was indeed haunted — by trespassers hoping to get a glimpse thanks to the 2013 movie. Heinzen, of Mexico, Maine, said he became interested in the paranormal while bivouacking at a Civil War battlefield and hearing screams and cannons. He and his wife bought the Rhode Island home last month and hope to open it to visitors and investigators later this year.

Oct 25, 2018 Features reflection on vampires, spirits, and halloween I was easily scared growing up. There was one episode of Scooby-Doo in particular that my sister and I would rent repeatedly from the local library: Its main villain was a disturbingly well-drawn vampire with the most startling hyena laugh. Yet, the most unsettling part came near the end of the episode. Instead of the standard unmasking of the culprit with a detailed explanation of his elaborate ploy, he turned out to be an actual vampire—an undead, distant relative of one of the characters. There was something so jarring and fascinating to me about how the monster was real that I couldn’t sleep alone the nights after we watched that episode. Still, I returned to the library to rent it out again a few weeks later. It was fun to re-experience that bit of fear, to emerge from the episode feeling a little less safe than before. With Halloween arriving soon, horror-lovers and thrillseekers on the Brown campus … [Read more...] about Post-little state of hauntings

The film will tell the story of “the origins of the demonic entity that will be haunting the Warrens in Conjuring 2,” Hardy explains in a featurette released by Warner Bros. in August. “One of the things that occurred to us early on is, they have a superhero universe. Why can’t we do that in the horror world?” said James Wan, director of The Conjuring. “When we were making the first Conjuring, it became apparent to us that we could make a bigger universe with so many other great stories.” Where does The Nun fit into the timeline? Below is a comprehensive guide to the timeline of The Conjuring movies, which began as horror stories loosely based on the lives and career of real-life paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren.
