In a time filled with self-quarantine and social-distance, virtual tours have become the new thing. Zoos, museums, and even places like Disney are providing fans with immersive content they can experience from the comfort of their own couch. And while all of these are lighthearted fare suitable for the whole family, this one is a little different.
This one could have you seeing ghosts.
The actual house that inspired the 2013 horror hit The Conjuring is set to live stream for an entire week to give fans an unprecedented look into one of America’s most haunted houses.
The event kicks off on May 9 and is a joint effort between the home’s current residents, the Heinzen family, and an online paranormal community called The Dark Zone Network.
Multiple cameras will be set up throughout the house with the Heinzen family participating in everything from paranormal investigations, seances, and Ouija board sessions. Guest appearances from several well-known figures inside the paranormal community are also expected. And if the event is anything like this trailer, fans could be in for a very creepy week.
A free preview is available starting May 8. After that, you can stream 24 hours worth of coverage for $4.99 or the entire week for $19.99. And according to The Dark Zone Network, portions of the proceeds will be donated to coronavirus-related charities.
The Heinzens, who are paranormal investigators themselves, purchased the home in 2019. And it didn’t take long for the Rhode Island home to live up to its haunted reputation.
“Footsteps, knocks, we’ve had lights flashing in rooms, and when I say lights flashing in rooms, it’s rooms that don’t have light in there to begin with,” Cory Heinzen told local TV station KETK.
The Conjuring is loosely based on the true story of the Perron family who lived in the home in the 1970s and solicited the help of Ed and Lorraine Warren after encountering several unnerving disturbances inside the house. The hauntings became so bad, the Perrons finally moved to escape them.
The film raked in over $300 million worldwide and would go on to create a successful horror franchise filled with sequels and spinoffs.
Could this live stream be the start of something new for horror fans? Who knows – but it’s certainly an innovative idea.
