OK, folks, heres what realy happened. How do I know? I lived next door to that old house which was one of the very first funeral parlors in Southington Ct. Before the Warrens got ivolved many of the previous tennents left the house because of terrible smells and loud noises with no explanations. The problems had been there for nearly 30 years before the Snedekers moved into the lower half of the house. At that time there was two other two room apartments in the upper floor but no one lived in them for nearly a year. The incident did happen but the sensationalisation of the actual events are blown up in typical hollywood fasion. The family was definatly traumatized and there where actual injuries. The cops where there at least a half dozen times because neighbors had heard blood curdling screams comming from the house late at night. On at least two of these occasions I witnessed that no one was home or anywhere near the house at the time. Before Mr. Warrens death I got to talk to him and he remembered me. We reminised for nearly an hour about the events and he was very candid about it. The Catholic Church washed their hands of the problem and the Warrens ended up having to walk away because of the problems the family was dealing with. They thought it best to not keep putting presure or futher investigation for the good of the family. That's my story and I'm sticken' with it. From the trailer I've seen some of the events I've heard about look to be fairly well done!
If you can find the original Warren account of this, its worth the read. Its a real timeaccount of what happened. It might be out of print but since the movie it might be available again!

This movie is based upon Ray Gorton's book "In a Dark Place". Read here what he really thinks of the family and of the Warrens:
And a little bit more of his side of the story here (about half way down the page):
Basically the family couldn't keep their stories straight and he believes the Warrens are frauds.
