The house that inspired the hit horror film The Conjuring will be livestreamed for an entire week.
The livestream is produced by a group of filmmakers and paranormal researchers called the Dark Zone. The week-long event will see current owners and paranormal investigators Cory and Jennifer Henizen as they practice quarantine protocols inside the notorious Rhode Island home. They will be holding seances, Ouija board sessions and video chat interviews with a number of guests throughout the week including one with Andrea Perron, the woman whose family supposedly experienced the terrorizing paranormal events that inspired The Conjuring.
“Watch as the Heinzen Family shows you how they live amongst the spirits while toughing out this worldwide pandemic. You will get an immersive and interactive look inside the real conjuring house. When paranormal activity happens, you’ll see it LIVE,” the Dark Zone website promises.
The Conjuring was released in 2013 and took inspiration from the Perron family’s experience in the house during the 1970s. Located in Harrisville, Rhode Island, the real home is quite different from the house in the film’s poster as it is actually a 200-acre, 14-bedroom farmhouse. Shortly after moving in, the family of seven reportedly began to notice strange things in house and while they started off small, it quickly turned into the smell of rotting flesh and beds rising off the floor. The Perron family believed that Bathsheba Sherman, the woman who lived in the property the 1800s, was haunting them, and called for the services of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.
The livestream kicks off May 8 with a free perview, but viewers who would like to subscribe can purchase a one-day access for $4.99 USD or a week-long pass for $19.99 USD. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to COVID-19 charities World Cental Kitchen, Gary Sinise Foundation and GlobalGiving.
Elsewhere in entertainment, Taika Waititi will be directing the next Star Wars film.
