Horror junkies can now entertain themselves - or spook themselves funny - with a virtual tour of the infamous 'Conjuring' household, once owned by the Perron family.
While everyone is on lockdown and staying safe by staying at home, there's not much you can do. Of course, you could rewatch all your favorite horror movies, but after the fourth or fifth time, you know exactly what to expect and when to expect it. Therefore, if you're itching for a good scare, look no further than this thrillingly terrifying livestream. Beginning May 9 all the way through to May 16, you can take a virtual tour of the creepy house from the hit horror film The Conjuring, PEOPLE Magazine reports. The online event, hosted by The Dark Zone, is bound to knock your socks off (in the best way possible).
The Dark Zone, an online community of filmmakers and “paranormal experts," announced the spooky event with an equally spooky trailer uploaded to YouTube. According to the community, the house will be "rigged with multiple cameras so the audience will have a completely immersive experience." Over the seven days of the virtual tour, the infamous Heinzen family - the new owners of the Conjuring house - will "conduct paranormal investigations, seances, Ouija board sessions and invite some of the most well-known and respected luminaries in the paranormal community to pop in remotely and share their most bone-chilling experiences from the house."
Though we all wish this could be a free event, there's a small fee attached to attending one of these virtual tours. You can either choose to pay $4.99 for 24 hours or $19.99 for the whole week. However, there will be a quick preview for free right before the main event starts. Instead of keeping the funds to themselves, all funds raised will be donated towards Coronavirus-related charities. This is, without a doubt, a great way to help provide relief to the most vulnerable during these challenging times.
When the Heinzen family first purchased the Conjuring house, they said the immediately fell in love with it. Nonetheless, they did - as one would - notice some paranormal activity. Cory Heinzen shared in an interview with KETK, "Footsteps, knocks, we’ve had lights flashing in rooms, and when I say lights flashing in rooms, it’s rooms that don’t have light in there to begin with." But he doesn't seem to be too worried about all this activity. Apparently, there's nothing necessarily "evil" about any of it. "I don’t have the feeling of anything evil, [but] it’s very busy," he said in a later interview with Sun Journal. "You can tell there’s a lot of things going on in the house."
For those unaccustomed, the 2013 hit horror film The Conjuring tells the true story of the Heinzen’s predecessors, the Perron family. The Perrons lived in the house during the 1970s and noticed some sketchy activities in their home. With the help of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, they established that the activities were actually hauntings. The Perron family were eventually forced to move out. Though the movie is fictionalized, there are still many aspects of the film that remain true to the Perrons' experiences. In the 2013 movie, Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson played the characters of Lorraine and Ed, who inspected the home. The film featured actors Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor, Joey King, and Mackenzie Foy as the members of the Perron family.
