Burrillville, R.I.

‘Conjuring’ brings unwanted attention to R.I. couple

The Rhode Island couple who live in the house made famous in the movie ‘‘The Conjuring’’ say they are troubled by people curious about the 1730s-era home. The Woonsocket Call reported that Norma Sutcliffe and her husband have not 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 was not filmed there, but it is based on a supposed haunting that occurred when another family lived there in the 1970s. Sutcliffe said strangers call to ask about the house and she has seen online comments from individuals who suggest it would be fun to break in. (AP)
