The Conjuring And Its True Story

Mrs. Horror Boom (HorrorBoom.com):

“Perron’s description of Bathsheba is where things really start getting creepy because she describes the spirit’s face as having almost no real features. Instead, it looked like a lifeless beehive with vermin crawling all over it. “Its head was leaning off to one side. It was round and gray, resembling a desiccated hornet’s nest. I couldn’t see anything underneath it… no eyes or mouth…it looked like the cobwebs hanging in the corners of the cellar.” This, as described by her mother.”

The quote block is also from the books… that’s when I decided I wasn’t brave enough to read it! LOVED the movie.

So, What Do You Fellow Horror Fans Think?
