The 300 year old haunted house in Harrisville, Rhode Island, that inspired the movie The Conjuring, was the subject of a Travel Channel special investigation by Ghost Adventures, in the episode ‘Curse of the Harrisville Farmhouse’, that aired on Halloween night. And according to one of the stars, Zak Bagans, the house made him sick…for three weeks.
The Ghost Adventures team investigated the haunted farmhouse, which, in 1971, was visited by paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who were hired by the homeowners. They were hired because the Perron family, owners of the home, had experienced poltergeist activity, been physically attacked and allegedly experienced possession. The Warrens said the spirit in the house was the “most malicious they had ever encountered.”
According to Bagans, the spirit “took everything out of me. My body wasn’t functioning right. My balance. This place is haunted by something I believe is very ancient.” Bagans revealed that he did not get over this for three weeks.
In June of this year, a couple, Corey and Jennifer Henzein, he a paranormal investigator, purchased the home. They want to open the house up for tours. After investigating the place, Bagans has warned them to be careful, saying that “they need to be very aware of what they could potentially be dealing with.”
The Ghost Adventures special aired on the Travel Channel. The Conjuring was released in 2013, followed by The Conjuring 2 in 2016. The Conjuring 3 is slated to be released in 2020.
Would you go into the house, if the current owners move forward with their plan to offer tours?
