The Conjuring is based on a true story
The first movie introduces us to Ed and Lorraine Warren. The next movies follow the couple and sometimes involve their family. However, the focus is on Lorraine’s psychic connection to the spirits that come into the real world.
The movies are based on the stories the real Ed and Lorraine have told over the years. They believe in the supernatural, and they have shared some of the events they’ve faced over the years.
Ed Warren was a World War II veteran who become a self-professed demonologist. His wife Lorraine claimed to be a medium and clairvoyant who could communicate with demons. The two joined forces to help people facing things from the other world.
The first movie follows the Perron family, and this whole tale is based on true experiences. The family moved into a 14-room farmhouse in Rhode Island in January 1971. Things immediately started happening, and Carolyn Perron started researching the house and found there were multiple spirits connected to it. The worst of all was Bathsheba, which was the one depicted in the movie.
The movies follow some of the biggest cases Ed and Lorraine faced over the years. Lorraine consulted on the movies to make sure the directors didn’t take any more dramatic license than was necessary.
