If you are a fan of horror, scary, and supernatural movies then you might have already watched this movie and you may have also heard about the rumor about the movie being based on a real event or true story but is it though? I will be answering this and we will also talk about the plot of the movie.
The plot of The Movie
At the very beginning of the film, two people Ed and Lorraine Warren are shown sharing their abnormal experiences with other people. The next scene shows that a family of seven, Roger and Carolyn Perron along with their five daughters Andrea, Nancy, Christine, Cindy, and April move into a farmhouse in Harrisville, Rhode Island. They also have a dog named Sadie but she declines to go inside the house.
At night Sadie starts to get anxious and barks randomly and the next day when Carolyn wakes up she finds bruises on her leg and she notices that all the clocks in their house have stopped moving from 3:07 AM and when April goes outside she finds their dog dead.
The scene then changes and shows Ed Warren with a press reporter and they go inside the ghost museum and they talk about Annabelle and other stuff there for some time, scene changes again and now bad things are starting to happen in Roger’s house.
The scene then shifts to Christine who is sleeping in her bed and suddenly something pulls her by her leg and she also starts to smell something bad.
If you have not watched the movie then go watch the movie and you will get the story and the plot of the movie after watching and if you are someone who has a weak heart then I suggest you not to watch the movie as it is considered one of the scariest horror movie of all time but personally I did not find it that scary.
Was Conjuring Based on a True Story?
Yes, The Conjuring is based on the true story of Ed and Lorraine Warren who was American paranormal activities experts and investigators. They also founded the New England Society for Psychic Research in 1952 and Lorraine claimed that she was psychic and could communicate with ghosts or spirits or devils.
She told USA Today, “There were just so many terrifying things going on there and I still feel affected when I talk about it today.” Ed and Lorraine build a museum called The Warrens Occult Museum where they kept many items that were possessed or were linked with paranormal activities including the possessed doll Annabelle.
As for Ed and Lorraine, they both have died, Ed died on August 23, 2006, in Monroe, Connecticut, he was 79 years old when he died and Lorraine died on April 18, 2019, in Monroe, Connecticut, and she was 92 years old when she died.
