House from Haunting in Connecticut

208 Meriden Ave, Southington, Connecticut 06489 USA

“Site of a terrifying true haunting..”

PRIVATE PROPERTY PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL This seemingly normal home is the real life location behind the terrifying film "A Haunting in Connecticut", where investigators say that events "much, much scarier than any movie" had occurred.  The film claimed that it is based on the "true story" of paranormal activities experienced by the family of Carmen Reed Snedeker in 1986. The Snedekers moved into a house in Southington, Connecticut in order to live closer to the UConn Health Center, where Carmen's son was being treated for cancer. The family would later claim that it was plagued by some manner of demonic presence. Mortuary equipment was discovered in the basement, and it was later found that the house had been a funeral home. Carmen described the demons: "One of the demons was very thin, with high cheekbones, long black hair and pitch black eyes. Another had white hair and eyes, wore a pinstriped tuxedo, and his feet were constantly in motion." The house was examined by Ed and Lorraine Warren. According to a write-up on the case in 2009 by NBC, the morticians that worked in the mortuary were allegedly involved in necromancy and/or necrophilia with the corpses, and the room where the two youngest children stayed was previously the show room for caskets; down the hall was where bodies were prepared for viewing. Lorraine Warren would later state that, "In the master bedroom, there was a trap door where the coffins were brought up, and during the night, you would hear that chain hoist, as if a coffin were being brought up. But when Ed went to check he found two women down there dancing around in circles and singing; when he walked towards them, they disappeared." In response to the film, Lorraine would later say the actual case was "much, much scarier than any movie could ever be," and that the film was "very, very loosely based" on their investigation of the house. Lorraine Warren has told the Associated Press that the house was cleared of any presence after an exorcism conducted in 1988. Carmen Snedeker's accounts were covered in episodes of the television series A Haunting and Paranormal Witness.

Sometimes you get lucky! My house was built in the 60's and the lady supposedly died of old age. No activity here. Just your normal creeks of an old home

I grew up in a demonically possessed house. It destroyed my whole life and my family. It's been exorcised completely now but we're still going to sell it and buy a new house. I'm never buying a house with unknown history ever again.

The house should be fine after an exorcism. Once the demons are gone, it's just a charming old house again. Make new memories in it. That's what I do in my house.

Hmmm, that makes the case for buying a new house rather than buying and renovating an old one as I've said I wanted to do. LOL

I'd open it up to tourists & do house tours - charge $30/person. Have sleepovers & charge $200/night. Sell merchandise & make a fortune.

Please note that this home is just that, someones home and private property. And Southington is a nice town...you can bet trespassing is not tolerated.
