Would you invest all your savings in a haunted house? The answer is probably “no”, but Jacqueline Nuñez (horror lover) decided to spend every last one of her cents to buy the house that inspired the movie The spell.
In accordance with The Boston GlobeNuñez paid more than 1.5 million dollars for the house located at 1677 Round Top Road in Burrillville, Rhode Island, United States.
Although none of the films in the horror trilogy were filmed in this house, it is said that the place became part of the paranormal investigations carried out by Ed and Lorraine Warren. In fact, the research carried out there was the inspiration for the film The spell of 2013.
Before passing into the hands of Nuñez, the house belonged to Jennifer and Cory Heinzen, who since 2019 took advantage of the place and its connection with the Warrens. However, the Heinzens sold the property because of the complexity of running such a business.
The property was purchased for the modest amount of 1.5 million dollars, dates from around 1736 and has 947.62 square meters of extension. On the other hand, Nuñez has stated that this is his best buy and plans to continue paranormal investigations.
This purchase is personal to me. It is not a real estate development. It’s about my own beliefs. I am a deeply spiritual person. It is a very important part of me. (…) This house is an opportunity to connect with people who have moved and died, that is the interactivity here and the commitment to people who have died.
Although many are afraid to enter the house, which is supposedly dominated by the Bathsheba Sherman entity (a 19th century Satanist), Nuñez said she did not feel an iota of fear.
I don’t think the energy here is malevolent. Things will happen here that will startle me, but they won’t hurt me. I hope to experience things.
