Fans of James Wan’s recent hit “The Conjuring” are making life an absolute pain for a Rhode Island couple.
Norma Sutcliffe and her husband have owned a 1730s-era home in the suburb of Harrisville for twenty five years.
It’s the home made famous in the movie by the supposed haunting that occurred when another family, the Perrons, lived there in the 1970s.
Sutcliffe says she and her husband haven’t slept in days as people with flashlights turn up in their yard in the dead of night. They also frequently receive calls asking “is this ‘The Conjuring’ house” along with other harassing phone messages.
Sutcliffe adds: “There are already threats on the Internet that ‘wouldn’t it be fun to break into that house?’. Our barn is very vulnerable and there is a big story connected to the barn about supposed hangings. Can you see kids breaking in and doing a seance with candles and having it burn down?”
While the so-called “real life incidents” of the film took place there, the production itself was shot far away in North Carolina.
Sutcliffe has seen the film and says “I just laughed at the whole thing. I thought it was so ironically ridiculous. I thought it was an insult to the Perrons.”
