The Haunting in Connecticut Home
: 208 Meriden Avenue, Southington, Connecticut
This five-bedroom, white wood-frame house is, apparently, a former funeral parlor and a haunted one at that. It was rented by Allen and Carmen Snedeker in 1986, who moved in with their daughter and three sons when, to their surprise, they discovered its past. The family then began experiencing terrifying visions. "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,"
said Carmen Snedeker
. The family recruited "demonologists" Ed and Lorraine Warren, famed for their involvement in the Amityville Horror case, who ruled it was indeed haunted. The house was reportedly "cleared" of ghosts after a séance in 1988,
according to the New York Daily News
, and this "true story" was adapted into a 2009 movie,
