If you’ve watched any of the Conjuring movies, or you’re just a fan of the paranormal, then you’d most certainly know this classic duo, Ed and Lorraine Warren.
It is the best thing that happened to horror TV since Ghostbusters. Yes, we said it. This couple’s investigation into hauntings and possessions spans a whopping 50 years and scours the globe!
They’re the demonologists behind some of the most famous supernatural cases in horror history. You remember Annabelle. Yes, that’s them.
You probably think you know all there is to know about these two. The movies did delve into their investigations pretty well. But they didn’t tell you this.
10 Lorraine Didn't Believe In Ghosts
Weird right? Your whole life is spent hunting ghosts, but you don’t believe they’re real?
Well, in Lorraine Warren’s case, the answer would be yes. Or that’s what it would have been if you met her in the ’50s.
Unlike her husband, who was interested in the paranormal all his life, Lorraine was a skeptic. When they were about to start their ghostbusting career, Lorraine didn’t believe that people saw ghosts.
She chalked it up to their imaginations. But, as they came across several people with similar stories and hauntings, Lorraine started believing in evil spirits who wreaked havoc.
It’s still a bit weird, considering that they didn’t start this ghost business today… yesterday?
9 Their Paranormal Lives Started Early
Lorraine started seeing visions and auras at the age of nine. She thought everyone saw it, so she didn’t make much of it.
Even when she took the issue to the Mother Superior in her Catholic elementary school, she was told not to talk about things like that again. Ed’s story starts way earlier.
At the tender age of five, Edward Warren Miney had shown an interest in the world beyond ours.
Born in 1926, in a haunted house, Ed got used to seeing his dead landlady’s ghost lurking around the house. And when he started visiting dead relatives too, he knew he had to tell someone.
So, Ed told his dad. He replied that everything has a logical explanation. A mantra Ed used in his future investigations.
