About this title


The world s most famous demonologists, Ed & Lorraine Warren, were called in to help an average American family who were assaulted by forces too awesome, too powerful, too dark, to be stopped. It s a true story, supported by dozens of eyewitnesses neighbors, priests, police, journalists, and researchers. The grim slaughterhouse of odors. The deafening pounding. The hoofed half-man charging down the hall. The physical attacks, a vicious strangling, failed exorcisms, the succubus... and the final terror which continued to torment the Smurls. In this shocking, terrifying, deeply absorbing book rivaled only by The Amityville Horror a case also investigated by the Warrens journalist Robert Curran digs deep into the haunting of the Smurl home in West Pittston, Pennsylvania, and the unshakeable family bonds that helped them survive. Don t miss the Warrens' blockbuster films The Conjuring and Annabelle (in theaters October, 2014.) Books by Ed & Lorraine Warren also include Graveyard, Ghost Hunters, In a Dark Place, Werewolf, and Satan's Harvest.

From Publishers Weekly:

Journalist Curran here reports on a case of demonic possession in a 92-year-old duplex in West Pittston, Penn., home of Jack and Janet Smurl, their four daughters and Jack's parents. After demonic attacks on the family became more frequent, paranormal researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren investigated in 1985. At their request, Catholic Bishop Robert McKenna performed three exorcisms, unsuccessfully. The Smurls have allegedly endured myriad tormentsa strangling attempt, spectral appearances, sexual molestation by a demon, a levitationthat persist. It is hard to doubt the witnesses to these phenomena. The narrative is based on the testimony of 28 people who purportedly experienced supernatural events linked to the haunting. Oddly, the Smurl family continues to live in the house. First serial to Redbook; Troll Book Club and Preferred Choice Book Club selections; film rights sold to Lorimar; author tour.
