The sequel will continue to follow the supernatural adventures of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga.
The Enfield Poltergeist is based on another real life investigation the Warrens worked on in their long career.
“In August 1977, a series of disturbances that were soon characterized as a case of poltergeist phenomena or even demonic possession began in Enfield, a northern suburb of London. The subject of a forthcoming movie, the occurrences, including the actions of an eleven-year-old girl who repeatedly ‘levitated’ above her bed, “held the nation spellbound” for over a year, according to Britain’s Daily Mail; ‘no explanation other than the paranormal has ever been convincingly put forward’.”
The tale begins with a divorced single mother named Margaret Hodgson who lived with her four children. They ranged in age from 7 to 13. The strange phenomenon started when the children began to complain that their beds were shaking during the night. There was a chest of drawers that would move in the dark and strange knocking sounds in the house. At one point there were even LEGOs and marbles that began to “zoom out of thin air and bounce off walls.” Of course, at first, Margaret thought that her kids were just making it all up or throwing LEGOs around themselves. But as things escalated, she couldn’t ignore the craziness that was taking place anymore.
Apparently it wasn’t the house that was haunted, it was the kids. The two Hodgson daughters claimed to have been stalked by this poltergeist, and that it would haunt them at school and while visiting with friends. Margaret believed that it was her eleven-year-old daughter Janet who was the main focus of this poltergeist’s attention. Some people were skeptical and thought that the young girl was pulling off some kind of elaborate prank.
There were a number of skeptics and investigators that came to the home to study what was going on there and try to figure things out, including Ed and Lorraine Warren.
