Owners of ‘The Conjuring’ farmhouse sue Warner Bros.
HARRISVILLE, R.I. — The owners of a Rhode Island farmhouse depicted in the 2013 horror film “The Conjuring” are suing Warner Bros., saying it has created a real-life nightmare for them.
Norma Sutcliffe and her husband sued the filmmaker and others they say have made a “mockery” of their Harrisville home since the movie hit the big screen.
They say online videos show trespassers coming up to their house. They say they’ll never see peace and privacy because of the movie, about paranormal investigators helping a family that just moved into a secluded farmhouse.
Warner Bros. spokesman Paul Maguire said Monday that the company hadn’t seen the lawsuit.
Sutcliffe says they’ve posted signs to keep trespassers at bay, but people keep coming onto the property.
The couple is seeking unspecified monetary damages.
