Maine Couple buy Farmhouse That Inspired ‘The Conjuring’ Horror Movie

Many horror fans will be familiar with the movie The Conjuring, and fans will be pleased to know that the nearly 300 year old house behind it’s inspiration now has new owners.

Cory and Jennifer Heinzen who are originally from Mexico, Maine, are themselves believers in the paranormal, and bought the house last month. Cory is a paranormal investigator, which he got into after experiencing screams and cannon fire on a civil war battlefield.

The farmhouse in Burrillville, Rhode Island, is still a hive for paranormal activity, ever since the Perron family experienced an abundance of activity in the 1970’s, which inspired the events in the film. Cory described, “doors opening and closing on their own, footsteps, knocking (and) disembodied voices.”

The previous owners of the house decided to sell, and claimed it had become a constant attraction for fans of the movie and the paranormal.

This plays nicely into the hands of Cory and Jennifer Heinzen however, as they have purchased the house in the hopes of opening it up to investigators and tourists.
