Cory and Jennifer Heinzen are the either the luckiest or the unluckiest couple after buying a farmhouse in Harrisville, Rhode Island, the same house which inspired the 2013 hit horror film The Conjuring.
The film is based on the true story of the Perron family who moved into the house in the ’70s. Since being built in 1736, the house had a history of something ‘playful, sinister, and dark’ residing there, which caught the interest of the famous paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.
“I’ve always been fascinated with the Warrens,” said Cory in an interview, “It’s just like a piece of paranormal history, this house.” He even said that since moving in, he’s heard doors opening on their own, footsteps, and knocking.
Still, the Heinzens wish to fix up the house for preservation and open it up to visitors. “This whole journey has been both scary — for many reasons other than paranormal — and exciting all at once,” Jennifer said, “I love that we have the opportunity to share the home with others.”
While restorations go on, Cory plans to stay at the house for the summer, with some limitations: “It makes me a little nervous for my own safety and it also makes me concerned for his as well. We’re kind of opening ourselves up to the unknown.”
