The Conjuring And Its True Story

“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.”

Jesus! I’d just sleep in my fucking car until we could find another house to live in… parked a couple counties away. Anyway, read this article for more disturbing details about the real-life case –also known as the Harrisville Haunting, or The Perrone House Haunting, that inspired upcoming nightmare put to celluloid, The Conjuring (opening on July 19th… NOT SOON ENOUGH FOR US!
