Alongside her late husband, demonologist Ed Warren, clairvoyant Lorraine inquired some of the most renowned and notorious paranormal hauntings about.
At “The Conjuring” press junket in San Francisco, Yahoo Movies lately had the opportunity to discuss with Warren, now 86-years-young.
Warren automatically laughed, as if there isn’t any comparison in the slightest.
“Amityville was terrible, honey. It was certainly terrible,” said Warren. “It followed us right directly across the country. I am going to never go in the Amityville house. You do not understand how long my career is; that is the only one.”
So when Warren says the Amityville house is the one haunted house she will not return to, it is clear something terrifying went down there.
That something terrible did happen at your house isn’t in dispute. On November 13, 1974, 23-year old Ronald DeFeo Jr. killed his parents, two brothers, and two sisters. But that is not what inspired following sequels, and the movie.
Unsurprisingly, the Lutzes got a good deal on the home, which was paradoxically called High Hopes.
High Hopes were eventually evacuated by the Lutz after just 28 days.
The Warrens were some of the researchers that are only to consider the case. And while many claim the entire narrative is a hoax, it is clear in speaking that she stays a strong believer.
Naturally, films predicated on real events do not always remain true to those occasions, particularly in the horror genre, but if the Lutz’s case is more frightening than the haunting depicted in “The Conjuring,” then it is no wonder Lorraine stays changed.
Sadly for everyone involved, that evidence is found by them.
“You want evidence. That is what you’ve got to have. You can not tell ghost stories,” Warren told us.
While “The Conjuring” may be more ghost story than evidence, it is still enough to allow you to crouch in your seat, yell at the display, and hide behind your partner. But unlike your house in Amityville, the filmmakers and Warren expect you will make return trips to view the movie.
