Casting has begun for The Conjuring a paranormal film to set to be released in 2013. It is to be directed by James Wan whose career includes; Saw, Dead Silence and a personal favorite of mine Insidious. The film has ties to Connecticut because it is going to revolve around the cases of our state’s famous paranormal investigating duo, Lorraine and the late Ed Warren. The plot of The Conjuring will be inspired by the story of the Perron family who were witnesses to many accounts of paranormal activity in their home. The home is located right over the Connecticut border in Harrisville Rhode Island. Andrea Perron spent a decade dealing with the spirits in her family home and wrote a book called “House of Darkness, House of Light” about it. The Warrens called the Perron home “one of the most compelling cases” in all their years of investigating the paranormal. The Warrens claim to have investigated over ten thousand hauntings in their life times and Lorraine is still doing cases and lectures to this very day. They founded the New England Society for Psychic Research and The Occult Museum, which are both located here in Connecticut. Shooting for The Conjuring will begin in six weeks with a budget of thirteen million dollars.
