Owners of 'The Conjuring' House Sue Warner Bros. Over Fans: 'We Have No Sense of Peace'
The movie The Conjuring sent shivers up the spine of movie-goers when it was released in 2013.
The film. which is about two paranormal detectives at a haunted house, was inspired by real-life events at a home in Harrisville, Rhode Island.
But it's not ghosts that are plaguing the current owners but rather the owners say an invasion of uninvited movie fans, desperate to see the house that inspired the film. The residents are so fed up that they have filed a lawsuit against the movie studio Warner Brothers for being "harassed and threatened" by trespassers 24-hours-a-day.
Homeowner Norma Sutcliffe says it gives her the creeps when curiosity seekers knock down her fences and ignore the “No Trespassing” signs posted along the grounds of the 240-year-old farmhouse.
She told INSIDE EDITION: “They think they have a right and that's what makes me so angry. If you could understand how devastated we are. We have no longer have any sense of peace. No privacy totally gone or any type of security is gone.”
Soon after the film became a blockbuster hit that summer, Norma says, intrusive movie fans started making life Hell.
“I want people to realize, it is harassment, stalking and that is how it comes across to us,” she said.
The lawsuit says she lives in fear of "Conjuring-inspired intruders" who "take photographs and videos" and try to get into the house.
Warner Bros. has not commented on the lawsuit.
