What can I say, I’m cynical. A realist. I don’t believe in fun. All of those things.
You may remember the Harrisville Farmhouse from the first Conjuring film, which saw the “real life” case of the Perron family, who believed they were being haunted by ghosts, demons and more.
It all started when the family first started noticing things going missing or moving about in the house. They later found out that eight generations of the same family had lived in the house before them and a fairly extensive number of them mysteriously died in suspicious way.
Drownings, murders, suicides and more were befalling this particular family, and then it turned out that demonic possession, occultism and satanism “took place there”.
Again, this is all on the word of the kind of person who believes in all of this. On first glance, I suspect that this eight-generation family had their fair share of enemies.
Even though the Conjuring film that delved into that particular case was set in the 70s, apparently weird sh*t is still going on in that house, as Ghost Adventures have turned their attentions to it for a new documentary.
Zak Bagans, one of the makers of the documentary, told TV Guide:
“I was beyond excited. I mean this is an iconic investigation, but I was also a little bit nervous because when we got there sh*t got real serious, real quick.“
He then spoke about the family who live in the house now, saying that the case is ongoing.
“When I spoke to the son, what he saw in that house – and they’ve only been in there for a month – but he even used the word ‘traumatised’. It traumatised them.
“It caused him to leave the house for three weeks. And then I started matching that what they were seeing is the same exact materialisation that the Perrons were also seeing back in ’73.“
The crew saw some “very disturbing things” apparently, as Bagans spoke about the difficulty of getting over their project once it had wrapped.
“It took me a few weeks to get over this, and that usually doesn’t happen,
“That’s very rare for me; at most it usually takes two or three days. One of my investigators, Aaron, wanted to end the investigation [prematurely] because he knew that we were very vulnerable to attachments and he was correct.
“So it was one investigation that that I will never ever forget. We witnessed some remarkable things, and we witnessed some very disturbing things.”
Eh, it was probably the local abandoned fairground owner in a mask.
