Lorraine Warren, the real-life paranormal investigator whose work impressed the ‘Conjuring‘ horror franchise, has died.
Lorraine died quietly and peacefully earlier this week, based on her grandson, Chris McKinnell. He stated, “Last night my grandmother, Lorraine Warren, quietly and peacefully left us to join her beloved Ed. She was happy and laughing until the very end.”
Lorraine and her husband, Ed, who died in 2006, have been world-renowned paranormal investigators whose casework sparked James Wan‘s horror film franchise. Lorraine’s character was performed by Vera Farmiga.
Lorraine — born on January 31, 1927 — and Ed investigated scores of paranormal instances, however none extra well-known than what went down in Amityville, NY. That creepy case impressed the 1977 guide, “The Amityville Horror” … in addition to the 1979 horror flick and the 2005 remake.
In “The Conjuring,” Lorraine’s character investigates a haunted Rhode Island farmhouse, however not earlier than the movie introduces the viewers to the notorious Annabelle doll within the opening scene — exhibiting 2 roommates getting tortured by the doll with creepy messages on the partitions.
Years later, Lorraine and Ed would go on to create a museum that includes the haunted objects that they had stored from their investigations … together with the actual Annabelle doll.
Lorraine was 92. RIP
