Dispelling Demons: Detective Work at The Conjuring House
#1
I analyzed the Perrons’ claims of demonic activity and showed that they were consistent with the effects of strong winds, misperceptions, schoolgirl pranks, vivid dreams, simple suggestion, role-playing, and other factors—including one child’s having had an imaginary playmate—and the effects of memory after some thirty to forty years. Then there was the influence of Ed and Lorraine Warren—“demonologist” and “clairvoyant,” respectively—who made a dubious career of convincing such troubled people that they were plagued by demons while seeking book deals and encouraging their coauthors, some admit, to fabricate elements to make the books “scary” (Nickell 2014, 23).

I agree with you. (This is not based on the movie, but Perron's book) Any serious research done into this case shows that the "facts" that are presented are completely skewed or just plain made up. Real documents exist that directly contradict some of the claims of the family. To me, she doesn't help her case any now that she is going around saying she can "conjure" UFOs upon command.

Unfortunately, this is one thing that I can't argue. I've done a lot of research on the warrens and I personally think that they are frauds. There is too much evidence that suggests that most, if not all, of their cases were fabricated to generate a profit.

It's a shame, really. It gives the paranormal community a bad name. Some people legitimately use there heads and aren't duped into believing things that aren't true. Some of them really do there research and try to find out what's really going on. And then you have people like the warrens who tarnish everyone else's work so they can make a quick buck.

You have to admit though, The conjuring movies are great entertainment!
