In 1971, Carolyn and Roger Perron move their family into a dilapidated Rhode Island farm house and soon strange things start happening around it with escalating nightmarish terror. In desperation, Carolyn contacts the noted paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren, to examine the house. What the Warrens discover is a whole area steeped in a satanic haunting that is now targeting the Perron family wherever they go. To stop this evil, the Warrens will have to call upon all their skills and spiritual strength to defeat this spectral menace at its source that threatens to destroy everyone involved.Written by

In the scene when the Warrens first meet the five daughters, the girls are watching an episode of The Brady Bunch. The scene features Maureen McCormick, Eve Plumb and Susan Olsen. Actress Shanley Caswell who plays eldest daughter Andrea starred alongside McCormick as stepdaughter/stepmother in a film previous to this one. See more »
On the landing to the basement stairs, you catch a glimpse of a vacuum cleaner that is a Kirby model 1CB Omega. That model of Kirby did not appear until 1972, a year after the movie was said to take place. See more »

Holy F*** is all people with me said while watching it throughout.
This film was easily one of the scariest films of the decade, complete with a horror package that will make even those new to horror love it, if they are a fan of fear that is. This movie had every guy in the group at the edge of their seats with their girlfriends....it was an intense experience that cannot be missed in theatres. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmega hold their own as the Perron's and EVERY SINGLE child actor owned the screen. All acting was top notch and gave the viewer a throwback to original days of good horror, not the stuff we've seen nowadays. Time can only tell when a movie like this will come out again but we know now that James Wan is one of the best horror directors of our time.
