When it comes to the marketing campaign for any horror film, there's nothing that studios like more than real life stories of spooky events happening on the set.

However, James Wan's beloved horror The Conjuring was a very different beast because the film is based on the on real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren and their experience with the Perrons, a family who moved into a Rhode Island farmhouse and experienced ghostly and terrifying occurrences in 1971.

The house is regarded as one of the world's most haunted places in the world and although Ed Warren died in 2006, his wife was a consultant on The Conjuring and claims that she didn’t let the film's creative team take any more dramatic license than was necessary.

In terms of the haunted events that the Perron family claimed to have experienced in the house, their ordeal is extraordinary.

To begin with, they experienced items going missing, strange noises, small piles of dirt in the centre of a newly-cleaned kitchen floor, and ghosts appearing in the house.

After conducting some research, one of the family members, Carolyn Perron, discovered that eight generations of another family had lived in the house prior to the Perrons and that many of them had died under mysterious or horrible circumstances.

Several of the children had drowned in a nearby creek, one was murdered, and others hanged themselves in the attic.

What unfolded included reports of satanism, seances, demonic possession, levitating chairs, smells of rotting flesh wafting through the house, and family members speaking in tongues.

FYI, we're not talking about the movie here. These are things that the Perron family have all claimed to have happened.

As for the two-hour TV special, the Ghost Adventures team will travel to the Rhode Island property on Halloween night to investigate any paranormal activity.

The show's host, Zak Bagans, has said that the Perron property has been on his list of investigations for a long time.

"The residual energy alone is palpable. And the real-life house that inspired the Conjuring movies – I'm speechless. That has a been a dream of mine to investigate for years and I can't believe it's finally happening. It's beyond legendary. I can't wait for viewers to experience this terrifying adventure with us."

Ghost Adventures airs on Really (that's the name of the channel - Sky (Ireland): Channel 155, Virgin Media Ireland: Channel 165) and while no premiere date has been announced just yet, we expect this particular episode to be shown on the station.
