A paranormal investigation team are planning to visit the real-life house that inspired the original Conjuring movie. Rather them than me.

The Old Arnold Estate in Harrisville, Rhode Island, was home to the Perron family from 1971 to 1980, who claimed they were persecuted by spirits.

The family say they experienced demonic possession, ghosts popping up all over the place and all manner of other creepy goings on.

After carrying out some research, the family found that many of the house's previous inhabitants had died, often in gruesome circumstances.

The family were so freaked out they called in renowned ghost busters Ed and Lorraine Warren, who are played in The Conjuring by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, to help them tackle the entities.

The story was so spooky it caught the eye of James Wan, and The Conjuring Universe was born.

Now, US TV show Ghost Adventures is going to check out the farmhouse and record a two-hour-long Halloween special, which is sure to go down a treat with horror fans.

A press release about the show reads: "A two-hour Halloween special, Ghost Adventures: Halloween 2019, takes the team to Rhode Island for an unforgettable lock-down inside the real-life home that inspired the iconic horror film, The Conjuring. The home's hauntings were also made famous by renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.

"The Rhode Island home is one of the most terrifying places in the world. Ghost Adventures crew is ready to confront the potentially dangerous consequences of investigating the infamous house."

Ghost Adventures' Zak Bagans said: "I've investigated a lot of places, but these locations are absolutely terrifying on a whole other level.

"The real-life house that inspired the Conjuring movies - I'm speechless! That has a been a dream of mine to investigate for years and I can't believe it's finally happening. It's beyond legendary. I can't wait for viewers to experience this terrifying adventure with us."

Incidentally, the old Perrons' house was recently bought by a brave young couple who have since claimed that the house is still very much haunted.

Cory Heinzen and wife Jennifer say they 'fell in love' with the house, but later found it still had paranormal occupants, according to the Sun Journal.

Cory said: "We had doors opening, footsteps and knocks.

"I've had a hard time staying there by myself. I don't have the feeling of anything evil, [but] it's very busy. You can tell there's a lot of things going on in the house."

Ghost Adventures Halloween 2019 airs on Thursday 31 October on ET.
