Perron Family Haunting: The Ghost Story that Inspired Horror Movies

By: Ebony Joy Wilkins

The Perron family received this advice from the previous homeowner of their Rhode Island farmhouse: "For the sake of your family, leave the lights on at night!" A ghostly witch named Bathsheba led the haunting of the Perron family, physically and psychologically tormenting them. This legendary ghost story eventually became the subject of the movie The Conjuring, and continued to haunt the Perron family for years to come.

Series Review
Titles highlight ghostly encounters; two describe hauntings that befell actual families. Clear, punchy, occasionally gory prose engages, yet the overall tone is non-sensational. Eye-catching covers and weird visuals enhance the spooky appeal. “Skeptic’s Note” sidebars offer possible explanations or alternate viewpoints. Other sidebars, some labeled “Fact,” some elaborately framed, include definitions, probing questions, or additional information. Readers learn some ghost stories may be related to or are versions of historical legends and correspond to stories known internationally, emphasizing the tales’ universality. Caution: Bloody Mary and La Llorona may be too dark/intense for the very young or very sensitive; they’re recommended for older students. Engrossing for ghost story and “history mysteries” fans in public and school libraries. In journalism or creative writing units, students can write news stories about or interviews with haunted individuals.
