Mexican couple sell house that inspired movie “The Conjuring” for $ 1.2 million
BURRILLVILLE, RI – Aren’t you afraid of ghosts and things that bump into the night?
The supposedly haunted farm in Rhode Island where the spooky events that inspired the 2013 horror film “The Conjuring” hit the market on Thursday for the chilling price of $ 1.2 million.
Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty on his listing called the 14-room, 3,100-square-foot 8.5-acre house in Burrillville “one of America’s best-known haunted houses.”
“Legend has it that the house is haunted by the presence of Bathsheba Sherman, who lived in the house in the 1800s,” the agency said. “To date, countless events have been reported. “
The film was not shot at home, but was based on the experiences of the Perron family who lived there in the 1970s.
The house was last sold in 2019 for $ 439,000 to Cory and Jennifer Heinzen of Mexico, who described themselves as paranormal investigators. They have organized events at the site and rented rooms for the night for fear-hungry people.
“We had doors opening, footsteps and knocks,” Cory Heinzen said in July 2019. “I had a hard time staying there alone. I have nothing wrong, (but) it’s very busy. You can tell there’s a lot going on in the house.
Prior to that, the previous owners weren’t complaining about ghosts, but about fans of the movie showing up around the clock and entering the property.
