Real life Conjuring haunted house up for sale – and has seriously dark history

A creepy farmhouse that inspired The Conjuring horror film is now up for sale for a staggering $1.2 million.

Estate agents are calling it “one of the most well-known haunted houses in the United States” – and it could be yours if you’re not afraid of the paranormal.

It is based in Burrillville, Rhode Island, on 8.5 acres of land and the home comes with 14 spooky rooms.

The ghostly happenings in the house inspired The Conjuring in 2013 and the property is said to be haunted by Bathsheba Sherman who owned the property in the 1800s.

Current owners Jenn and Cory Heinzen say they have encountered spirits there.

Cory told the Wall Street Journal his family initially spent four months in one downstairs room in respect to the pre-existing spirits rather than “barging in” straight away.

The Conjuring wasn’t actually filmed there but it was based on the Perron family who did live at the home.

They owned it in the 1970s – and Carolyn, Roger, and their five daughters immediately felt there was something chilling about the property.

The mum decided to research into the history of the farmhouse when her girls reported seeing “spirits”.

According to folklore, she discovered there had been mysterious deaths and tragedies at the location in the past.

They believed they were being tormented by a previous tenant called Bathsheba Sherman, who they feared was a Satanist.

The parents worried the ghoul of Bathsheba would harm them.

So according to the tale that’s been made famous by the Conjuring movie, the family tried to banish the negative energy by performing a seance.

Reportedly, Carolyn became possessed and rose off the floor in her chair.

Truly the stuff of nightmares!
