They were a very close knit family. They were good children. They had no knowledge of the history behind the house before experiencing the happenings. Go behind the true story of the Enfield house in a spooky new featurette from The Conjuring 2. Janet (Hodgson) Winter tells viewers what really happened to a family leaving North of London, who experienced one of the most terrifying real-life hauntings in history. Which will be recounted in director James Wan's chilling sequel to the 2013 blockbuster smash hit The Conjuring. Also on hand is real-life demonologist Lorraine Warren, who personally investigated this case. She recounts the events that will scare horror fans this summer.
This sneak peek from Youtube reveals the real recordings from The Warren Files taken in Enfield. They were captured in August of 1977, and feature a ghostly demonic voice warning Lorraine's husband Ed not to go any further. The voices are coming out of Janet, who was 11 years old at the time. Margaret, Janet's sister, explains that it did get out into their neighborhood that something strange was going on in their house. And this became known as the strange happenings in Enfield. Janet claims she was used and abused by her demonic possessor. She goes onto confirm that there was levitation, demonic voices, and she even claims it was all quite life-threatening for her. Director James Wan says this.
"With the Warrens, and the repertoire of cases they've investigated of their lifetime, the Hodgson family is one of their most interesting ones."
There is plenty of new footage from The Conjuring 2 revealed in this sneak peek. It also features interviews with Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, who reprise their roles as Lorraine and Ed Warren. There are also a series of actual photographs taken in Enfield during the time. They arrive with the dire warning, 'What happened wasn't good.' There is also an on-camera reunion between the real Lorraine, Janet and Margaret nearly forty years after the incident took place.
The Conjuring 2 is based on one of Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren's (Vera Farmiga) most famous cases, the 1977 haunting experienced by Peggy Hodgson (Frances O'Connor) and her family (Madison Wolfe, Lauren Esposito, Patrick McAuley and Benjamin Haigh). The paranormal activity took place between the years 1977 and 1979, at the Hodgson house in Brimsdown, Enfield, England. Some have claimed the haunting was real, while others believe it's fake. James Wan says that the haunting that afflicted the Hodgson family is easily one of the most documented paranormal cases in the world.
