this case was based on a murder in Brookfield, CT
9 May 2004 | by dgallag114See all my reviews

I lived in the apartment this murder took place in. It was not located in Rhode Island, it was located in Brookfield, Connecticut. I used to study the Black Arts and left my black book of 72 demons in the attic without the pentagram of soloman on it for protection.

The movie set was fashioned after that apartment and there was a pet motel right next to it. It is still there. You can recognize the building by looking at it from the back.

If the murder took place in Brookfield and there was demonic involvement. The Book of Soloman may have had something to do with it. I remember when it happened, it was publicised as the first murder ever in Brookfield.
