The Conjuring, James Wan’s (Saw) newest horror film, purports to be the true story of a haunting and the original ghost hunters who investigated it. In 1970, the Perron family (Roger & Carolyn Perron and their five daughters) moved onto a farm in Rhode Island. Little did they know the site was also home to a number of the deceased. Per eldest daughter Andrea Perron: “For almost a decade our family lived among the dead. There we came to understand we are not alone and there is something beyond mortal existence.” (as documented in her book House of Darkness, House of Light). Of course – Hollywood can’t resist a good based-on-a-true-story horror film. And now the Perron’s ten-year ordeal (or was it?) is a full-fledged motion picture starring Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga and Lili Taylor, among others.

At WonderCon, the real life Perron daughters discussed their surprisingly positive feelings towards being haunted and how they coped as adults having lived through such an ‘ordeal’. In addition, executive producer Walter Hamada discussed how hands on he was with James Wan directing (i.e. not very) and what can we expect from the newest trailer for the film set to debut alongside Evil Dead’s release. For the full video interview, hit the jump.
