Well, it kind of did.
The popular movie The Conjuring is based on the real actions of Ed and Lorraine Warren when they helped the Perrons in 1971.
The Perron family, mum, dad and five daughters, moved into the Rhode Island farmhouse in 1970 and continued to live there for ten years, give or take.
The witch, Bathsheba Sherman was born in 1812 and had at least one son with her husband, but possibly four children altogether. She lived until 1885 and was 73 years old when she passed away. There’s no real evidence that she was a witch, only stories, mostly due to the death of an infant in Bathsheba’s care. The child died when a sewing needle was inserted into its skull. Bathsheba was never convicted of the child’s murder but that did not stop stores from sprouting.
There are a lot of stories about Bathsheba’s death, including turning to stone. But I was not able to find the actual cause of her death beyond illness.
It was the Warrens who made the connection between the haunting of the farmhouse with Bathsheba, mostly due to an injury suffered in the house resembling that of a stab wound by sewing needle.
