You know that creepy as heck house in The Conjuring? Well, there are actually people who live there right now. However, unfortunately, there appear to be people who aren’t respecting that and are trespassing on the property. Now, the owners of the house have had enough and are suing Warner Bros. on the matter.
The Rhode Island couple claims that after being featured in the huge success that was The Conjuring their house has become a popular spot for people to come and trespass, which they’ve not taken well. As a result, Norma Sutcliffe and her husband are suing Warner Bros., claiming that the 2013 film The Conjuring has caused them nothing but trouble.
The couple claims that they are kept awake at night by the trespassers peering into their home. Sutcliffe also claims that neither her nor her husband were approached by the movie studio about using the likeness of their house within the film. Fans were able to find the home because the filmmakers actually used the real names of the previous house’s owners.
Despite the problems, the couple is only asking Warner Bros. to cover the cost of a security system for the property along with some undisclosed monetary damages. However, a studio spokesperson has told the Associated Press that the company have not yet seen the lawsuit.
We feel that maybe the couple is overreacting a little bit and should just take it on the chin. They chose to live in the creepy house and unless people are actually walking into their property, they shouldn’t really be too bothered about the situation.
The Conjuring was a huge success at the box office and received positive responses from critics too. There is also a sequel in the works, but let’s just hope they don’t use the house again or someone else’s house without asking their permission this time.
What are your thoughts on this situation? Do you think they’re just overreacting or do you think they have every right to try and sue Warner Bros.? Let us know in the comments below.
The Sutcliffe family had been living in that house for 28 years before the movie the Conjuring came out. There’s also the fact they have disputed the history and facts in the movie as made up.
