The Conjuring Facts Things You Didn't Know

"The Conjuring" has spawned films and sequels based on real-life supernatural investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren's experiences. But what actually "happened," and where did real-life tales and Hollywood scripting collide in "The Conjuring," the "Annabelle" films, and "The Nun"? Here is a list of ten fun facts about conjuring that will surprise you.

1 - The current owners of the house filed a lawsuit against the producers.

The house where the paranormal events occurred had been calm and incident-free until The Conjuring was released in theaters. However, once the film was released, they endured a rash of robberies and property damage. Their house was turned into a circus, and they eventually sued both the producers and the director.

2 - Before the film was shown, priests in the Philippines blessed it.


It could have been a gimmick to increase ticket sales, or it could have been a suggestion of paranoia about the gloomy feelings that came with the film, but this was really real. In fact, Catholic priests were called in to bless the audiences. The Philippine Islands It has to have succeeded because no actual possession was ever reported.

3 - Lorraine Warren contributed to and advised on The Conjuring.

In addition to studying demons, Lorraine Warren was a clairvoyant trance medium. She also had a cameo in the movie after acting as a consultant on the first Conjuring. When the Warrens discuss the "Stages of Possession" in the film, she emerges among the sitting audience in a blink-and-miss moment. She had previously acted in the 1991 film The Haunted, a horror movie based on the Warrens' book.

4 - There was an occult museum there.

Monroe is also home to the famed Warren's Occult Museum, in addition to NESPR's headquarters. Throughout their extensive career as paranormal investigators, the Warrens amassed a collection of haunting antiques, such as the Annabelle doll and a coffin that reportedly belonged to a vampire. Tony Spera, as previously stated, was also the museum's chief curator.
However, due to zoning concerns, the museum closed its doors to all visitors in 2019. Because it was located in a residential area, the museum generated a lot of traffic, which irritated the neighbors.

5 - They were confronted with Annabelle in real life.


The titular doll in the Annabelle flicks is depicted to be composed of porcelain and to have a haunting expression on her face. The genuine Annabelle, on the other hand, was a plain-looking rag doll. These "Raggedy Ann Dolls" were popular in the 1910s due to their physical characteristics, such as red hair and a triangle nose. The infamous doll met by the Warrens was given to a nursing student, whose roommates were persuaded that the doll was demonic and possessed by a girl named Annabelle. The haunted doll was eventually taken by the Warrens and placed in a glass box in their Occult Museum.

6 - A real story served as the inspiration for "The Conjuring 2."

The Enfield Haunted is one of the most well-known and well-documented alleged hauntings in history, and much of what is seen in "The Conjuring 2" is part of the evidence of what is said to have happened. For one thing, there is audio of Janet Hodgson apparently talking in the voice of Bill Wilkins, as well as photographs purportedly showing the children levitating. Responding to family calls, the police said they saw furniture move on its own, much like in the movie.

7 - "The Amityville Horror" is inspired by the Warren case as well.

A haunting the Warrens worked on in Amityville, New York, is mentioned in "The Conjuring 2." In one case, the Lutz family was haunted after moving into the home where Ronnie DeFeo Jr. had murdered and shot six members of his family the previous year. Parts of the haunting's story are told in "The Conjuring 2," and the case inspired all of the films in the numerous "Amityville Horror" franchises. (The Lutzes' story has since been debunked.)

8 - Amityville was a fraud as well.

The story of the Amityville haunting has been largely discredited. William Weber, Ronnie DeFeo's lawyer, said the tale was made up by him and George Lutz. Weber had wanted to use the haunting to secure his client a new trial, while the Lutzes reaped the benefits of the story's international renown and notoriety.

9 - "The Conjuring" is based on a true-life haunting.

If you believe in such things, the first film in the "Conjuring" series is based on a true, documented experience. The Perron family actually exists, as evidenced by images shown during the film's closing credits, and they reported being attacked by some form of monster. The Warrens did, in fact, conduct an investigation. Lorraine Warren and the Perron family both gave their approval to the film.

10 - In 2019, the Warrens' Occult Museum was closed to the public.

Because Ed died in 2006 at the age of 79 and Lorraine died in 2019 at the age of 92. The museum, which was closed due to zoning problems, housed the real-life Annabelle doll as well as other relics.
