Lorraine and (the late) Ed Warren are infamous in the field of paranormal research, and thanks to their high-profile cases in the media, many of their investigations have provided source material for popular horror films throughout the years.
James Wan’s supernatural chiller The Conjuring (2013) was the latest to delve into the tales discovered in their terrifying findings, though other famous horror films to incorporate them include: The Amityville Horror (1979), A Haunting in Connecticut (2009), Annabelle (2014), and of course, the upcoming sequel to The Conjuring, based on The Enfield Poltergeist case which made headlines in the UK in the late 1970s
At the end of the investigation of the historic home, a scream was heard.Walking through the Octagon House — one of the historic buildings at Heritage Square Museum in Los Angeles — Irvine resident Ashley Hansen fumbled through pitch-black rooms until she found the source of the noise: a woman she’d spoken to earlier in the night who was a skeptic when it came to all things paranormal.Like something out of a horror film, the woman stood ramrod straight, plastered to the wall, not blinking, according to Hansen as she relayed the story. She asked the woman if she was OK.”She’s like, ‘I like this house. I just want everyone to leave my house,’ ” recalled Hansen, who suggested that the woman seemed to be channeling a spirit.No stranger to the paranormal — Hansen and her dad have been amateur ghost hunters for 10 years — even she was a little creeped out, she said.

I recall it was a Sunday (Jan 26) when the story of Latoya Ammons and her three children appeared on the Indianapolis Star news website. I had a feeling it was going to be a popular story and wrote it up right away on Doubtful News. It was clear to me from the detailed piece by journalist Marisa Kwiatkowski that the case contained some serious flaws.
It sounded just like a Hollywood movie. Dramatic behavior was described by the police, a priest and health professionals who were disturbed by the case. Yet, as with almost all of these astounding cases, we see described the typical behaviors related to “possession” (none of which have ever been verified other than by religious believers to be actual demon possession). We are offered many eyewitness reports and opinions but no solid evidence of bizarre events – no photos or videos. The witnesses who describe the events, especially Ammons herself, hold a belief in the reality of the supernatural. Even the police interpreted events in a paranormal light, seemingly swallowing the stories they were told at face value. A sense of religiosity in the victims’ daily lives is apparent. A credulous priest encouraged the belief in demons and performed an exorcism. The story snowballed.
Kwiatkowski revisited the circumstances around publishing the story which became the “most-read piece in The Indianapolis Star’s history.”Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
