This week, we dig into the story that inspired the major motion picture The Conjuring. In 1971, Roger and Caroline Perron moved into the Arnold Estate with their five young daughters. Paranormal phenomenon began immediately. From full body apparitions and poltergeist activity to oppressive atmosphere and possible demonic obsession tormented this family over the next decade. The involvement of Ed and Lorraine Warren kicked things up a notch when Caroline was possibly possessed during a seance. Regardless of your opinion, this trauma impacted this family for the rest of their lives and much of the movie’s characterizations were farther off-base than you would ever imagine.
IT WASN’T BATHSHEBA!
