The Rhode Island farmhouse that inspired the 2013 horror movie "The Conjuring" has been sold to a Boston developer who plans to keep it open to the public.
The 18th century home was sold for $1.525 million, far higher than the $1.2 million asking price.
"This purchase is personal for me," said buyer Jacqueline Nunez, owner of WonderGroup LLC. "It’s not a real estate development. It’s around my own beliefs."
Nunez plans to continue the paranormal business. Guests will be able to continue the nightly paranormal investigations, day tours will resume and there will be livestreamed events.
The movie wasn’t filmed at the home but was based on the experiences of a family that lived there in the 1970s.（AP）
