Owners of ‘The Conjuring’ farmhouse say Warner Bros. created real-life nightmare
HARRISVILLE, R.I. (October 26, 2015) — The owners of a Rhode Island farmhouse depicted in the 2013 horror film “The Conjuring” are suing Warner Bros., saying it has created a real-life nightmare for them.
Norma Sutcliffe and her husband sued the filmmaker and others they say have made a “mockery” of their Harrisville home since the movie hit the big screen.
They say online videos show trespassers coming up to their house. They say they’ll never see peace and privacy because of the movie, about paranormal investigators helping a family that just moved into a secluded farmhouse.
Sutcliffe says they’ve posted signs to keep trespassers at bay but those haven’t kept people from coming on the property.
Sutcliffe and her husband are seeking unspecified monetary damages, a security system and a security plan.
Warner Bros. hasn’t responded to messages seeking comment on the lawsuit.
