To mark the release of ‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It’ we thought we’d show you around the real-life house and introduce you to its owners.
The Conjuring House that inspired the infamous saga is located in the Rhode Island Village of Harrisville.
Built in 1836, the 10-room property is currently owned and occupied by Cory & Jennifer Heinzen and their family, who’ve said that the house is still very much a hot spot for paranormal activity.
If you’re not familiar with the story already, The Conjuring is based on a true story and centres around Ed & Lorraine Warren’s experiences when they were called to investigate some spooky goings-on at the house.
Madison Heinzen, whose family owns the haunted house, regularly treats horror lovers to sneak peeks of the property and its ghostly residents via TikTok.
“This is the real-life Conjuring house, based on a true story, this home inspired the movie The Conjuring. To this day, the home is still haunted by several spirit entities,” she explained in one video.
“We’ve opened the doors for the public to visit, for those who dare to enter.”
Despite admitting that they don’t like to be in the 200-year-old farmhouse alone, the family have no plans to flee and instead have opened the haunted house to the public as an Airbnb. They’ve also set up 24/7 cameras to document and investigate any supernatural events.
“It’s very nerve-wracking,” says Cory, 40, a retired Marine who served in Afghanistan twice. He sees random bursts of light in a room that has no light fixtures. “We’re hearing voices, doors are opening and closing, we’re seeing shadow figures.”
I don’t know about you, but the best part of watching a horror film is getting to the end knowing it’s not real. I really couldn’t imagine wanting to spend one night in the real Conjuring house, let alone live there.
