From Ed and Lorraine Warren, the demonologists featured in The Conjuring horror films, comes the story of the most terrifying case of demonic possession in the United States. It became the basis for the hit film The Haunting in Connecticut starring Virginia Madsen. Shortly after moving into their new home, the Snedeker family is assaulted by a sinister presence that preys one-by-one on their family. Exhausting all other resources, they call up the world-renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, who have never encountered a case as frightening as this.
No one had warned the Snedekers their new house used to be an old funeral home. Their battle with an inexplicable and savage phenomena had only just begun. What started as a simple poltergeist escalated into a full-scale war, an average American family battling the deepest, darkest forces of evil a war this family could not afford to lose.

This story moves incredibly slowly, and is difficult to really get absorbed in. The author spends a lot of time in unnecessary details, and the "scary" scenes are underwhelming at best.
Additionally, Todd Haberkorn uses a variety of voices throughout the production. This usually adds a layer of depth to the narration, however several of the voices he uses are grating to the point of distraction.
I will admit that I am a skeptic. I also do not trust anything the Warrens have been involved with. That being said, the story did hold my interest. I am an avid reader of the True Crime/Paranormal genre. There definitely are other stories out there that are far more believable and less sensational. Ghost rape/molestation is shocking and scary. However, this book was so ridiculous it reads less scary and more perverse/disgusting. At one point, two teen girls (relatives) come to stay to avoid their parents messy divorce. I find it utterly ridiculous to believe a parent would find a rapist ghost and cousin preferable to divorce exposure. If I had to guess, this is fabricated. I would assume the family opted to come up with some excuse for a very troubled and sick (physically/mentally) child.
This was such a great good vs evil story. exorcisms and possessions can only be overcome by an ordain priest from the one true Church. the catholic church. anyone or anything else doing battle will be fiction or loose. i am so blessed to be catholic. and the warrens are a living testemet to its truth. as of this writing ed warren has passed away. i pray that another couple or person will have the courage to take his place. lorain thank u for the gift of yourself and your beloved husband. your love as a catholic sarcremtally married couple gave u more power in doing battle. but i so respect that u always knew your limits and called in the church. your Catholic faith has made my faith stronger. i know it brought others to believe in the power Jesus handed over to his church is objective truth. meaning the church of Catholicism has the truth and just because one may questions it doesn't make it any less true. .blessings. ...
