Man Doing Real-Life Conjuring House Documentary Says Investigation Made Him Fall Ill

The Ghost Adventures team are used to being in some of the creepiest situations you can imagine. But the founder of the Travel Channel series Zak Bagans has said their most recent investigation really stuck with him - even revealing that it made him physically ill.

Bagans and some of the team - including Aaron Goodwin, Billy Tolley and Jay Wasley - spent time at a 300-year-old Rhode Island home. The Harrisville Farmhouse previously belonged to the Perron family, whose experiences inspired horror film The Conjuring.

Speaking to People, 42-year-old Bagans said: "This house made me sick, and I did not recover from this investigation for about three weeks. It took everything out of me. My body wasn't functioning right. My balance. This place is haunted by something I believe is very ancient."

Bagans' cameras were the first allowed into the home in 15 years. He continued: "As an investigator, this is the ultimate place to go because of the history.

"Being able to get inside of the house and back inside of this case, reopen these files, learn some things that people don't know about this investigation, was just an absolute thrill."

Over their multiple-day investigation, Bagans said he and his team experienced 'some really incredible things'. He added: "When we were using infrared binoculars, we captured this black mass blocking the light and the window of the house.

"I know it's a thrill to buy the house and live there, but they need to be very aware of what they could potentially be dealing with."

The reason the house from The Conjuring has gripped people's attention is because the movie is based on real events the Perron family say actually happened. It started off with them seeing things move around the home, items going walkabouts or missing altogether, and spotting ghostly apparitions around the house.

It then turned out that eight generations of another family had lived in the house. That is, until a remarkable number of them died in mysterious or suspicious circumstances.

Strange drownings, murders and suicides all around. Horror movie gold, basically.

That's before we get to the instances of alleged demonic possession, occultism and satanism that allegedly took place there.

Speaking to TV Guide about the filming of the forthcoming documentary, which is out on - of course - October 31, Zak said: "I was beyond excited. I mean this is an iconic investigation, but I was also a little bit nervous because when we got there s*** got real serious, real quick."

Bagans also spoke to a family that recently moved into the house, and they seem pretty spooked too.

Ghost Adventures: Curse of the Harrisville Farmhouse airs on Thursday (31 October) on the History Channel in the US. A UK air date has not been confirmed.
