The real-life home depicted in the original The Conjuring film just sold in Rhode Island for $ 1,525 million. This is not the house used for the movie; instead, it is the actual house the Perron family lived in during their experiences with a paranormal entity. The home was purchased in 2019 by the Heinzen family, who opened the land up for tours, inviting anyone brave enough to take a look at the Rhode Island house. The Perrons moved to the home in January 1971 and immediately began noticing strange things within the house. Based on reports from All That’s Interesting, the Perron’s would start to see small things which had no explanation. For example, a broom would go missing or be out of place, a strange sound would scrape against the kettle in the kitchen when no one was there, and small piles of dirt accumulated on a newly cleaned floor. Once the Heinzen family bought the house, they reiterated these experiences with the Sun Journal.
“We had doors opening, footsteps and knocks. I’ve had a hard time staying there by myself. I do not have a feeling of anything evil, (but) it’s very busy. You can tell there’s a lot of things going on in the house. “
Now the Heinzen family has sold the house for far more than they paid, making a substantial profit. The home sold for $ 1,525 million, just three years after their initial purchase of $ 439,000. Boston contractor Jacqueline Nuñez is the buyer, and the Nuñez family took to Facebook to announce their acquisition. As part of the deal, the family agreed to continue the business and tours that the Heinzen family started. In addition, they will not be living in the house year-round, and the Heinzen family will still be involved with the operations of the home.
Horror Turned to Hollywood Blockbuster
After the traumatic events the Perrons experienced in the Rhode Island home, paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren began investigating. What followed was one of the most famous hauntings to date, which would be referenced and focused on in various forms of media for decades. However, it was not until 2013’s The Conjuring that the Perron family was catapulted back into the spotlight. The film was a massive success, raking in $ 320 million at the box office on a $ 20 million budget. Ed and Lorraine Warren were portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmigawith horror guru James Wan directing.
The film’s success spawned The Conjuring universe, consisting of several movies such as The Conjuring 2, The Nun, and Annabelle. The expanded universe is far from over, with projects like The Crooked Man and The Nun 2 still in development. However, director James Wan is currently tied to another franchise, with the imminent release of Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom arriving on Dec. 16th this year.
