BURRILLVILLE – The house that garnered international attention following the release of a 2013 horror film inspired by reports from famous paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren is at the center of a new film to be released this week.
Sleepless Unrest premiered at the Wildey Theater in Edwardsville, Ill. On Friday, July 2, a movie directed by Kendall & Vera Whelpton about their two-week stay on Round Top Road in Harrisville.
The Whelptons are said to have stayed in the house, made famous by the hit horror film The Conjuring, with actors Brian Murray and Richel Stratton from “Ghost Hunters” on A&E.
“A small team of filmmakers and paranormal investigators move into the house that inspired the Conjuring films to document paranormal activity for two weeks,” note the film’s specials. “Is Conjuring’s real house still haunted?” “
Kendall Whelpton is known for her work on “The House in Between”, “Ghost Hunters”, “Wicked Tuna” and “Battlefish”.
The group reportedly ran 14 cameras around the clock during the two-week stay, producing an hour-20-minute film that was featured earlier this month on FOX Morning News.
The film will officially premiere in theaters and on video on demand on Friday July 16 from Gravitas Ventures.
Cory and Jennifer Heinzen, who bought the house in 2019, attended the film’s premiere. The Heinzens, paranormal investigators from Maine, called the house, built in 1766, “The Farm on Round Top Round,” opening the 8.5-acre property to nightly visits and investigations. For the past two years, it has been the subject of a Ghost Adventures special and has been featured everywhere from the NY Post to People magazine.
Their website, theconjuringhouse.com/, has a 7-day-per-week schedule with most dates booked at a cost of $ 125 per night, per person, until the end of the year.
Sleepless Unrest can currently be pre-ordered through iTunes for $ 6.99. To learn more and watch a trailer for the film, visit thesleeplessunrest.com.
