HARRISVILLE, RI (Sun Journal) — A Mexico couple bought the famously haunted Rhode Island farmhouse that inspired “The Conjuring” movie — and Cory Heinzen says doors started opening by themselves on day one.
“We had doors opening, footsteps and knocks,” Heinzen, 40, said Friday. “I’ve had a hard time staying there by myself. 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 in the house.”
In the 1970s, the Perron family with five daughters lived in the Harrisville house, which was built in 1736.
Whatever lived there with them, they claimed, “was playful at first, but then it started to become more sinister, more dark,” Heinzen said. “Physical attacks, mystery illnesses.”
