BURRILLVILLE, R.I. (AP) — The Rhode Island couple that lives in the house made famous in the movie “The Conjuring” say they’re being troubled by people curious about the 1730s-era home.

The Woonsocket Call reports that Norma Sutcliffe and her husband haven’t slept well in days because of people showing up in their yard in the middle of the night.

The couple has lived in the Burrillville home for 25 years. The hit horror film wasn’t filmed there, but it is based on a supposed haunting that occurred when another family lived there in the 1970s.

Sutcliffe says strangers call to ask about the house and she’s seen online comments from individuals who suggest it would be fun to break in.

She says she doesn’t believe in haunted houses or ghosts.
