Fans of the horror movie genre will no doubt agree that The Conjuring is one of the scariest movies ever to be made. The movie, which has spawned numerous sequels and spin-offs are based on the 18th-century Rhode Island farmhouse that Roger and Carolyn Perron lived in with their five daughters. According to reports, the family was haunted and terrified by paranormal activity that took place in the house and has claimed that some family members were even possessed, USA Today reports.
The house featured in the movie was recently sold to paranormal investigator Cory Heinzen and his wife, Jennifer, who together have a teen son, Kyler, says he has always been intrigued by the paranormal. "I feel I've always had a fascination with the paranormal," Cory told the Insider. "Whether it was ghosts, UFOs, lake monsters or Bigfoot, I've always loved that side of the unexplained."
Heinzen, who says he jumped at the chance when he realized the house from The Conjuring was up for sale, told NBC 10 that he's been living in the home alone for the last three weeks while his wife and son pack up their home in Maine and that he has definitely experienced some paranormal activity. "It's been very busy: doors opening and closing on their own, footsteps, knocking, the disembodied voices," he said.

"Eight-and-a-half acres, a river in the back and a pond, it’s so serene down there, never mind the story behind the house, it’s a beautiful home. (Jennifer) honestly was more excited than I was, I think." He went on to explain more of the
