The Conjuring 2 – Original Enfield Investigator Calls B.S. on The Warrens’ Part


Well, here’s something extremely interesting… The new film The Conjuring 2 is based upon The Enfield Poltergeist case that took place at a council house from August 1977 to 1979. The lead investigator on that particular piece of paranormal history, Guy Lyon Playfair, was recently interviewed on Dave Schrader’s Darkness Radio, and he had some interesting words regarding the involvement of investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.

They did turn up once at Enfield, and all I could remember was Ed Warren telling me that he could make a lot of money for me out of it,” says Playfair. “So I thought, ‘Well, that’s all I need to know from you,’ and I got myself out of his way as soon as I could.” The inflammatory remarks don’t end there though.

Playfair continues, “I don’t think he went there more than once. I did read somewhere a transcript of a lengthy interview which he’s alleged to have had with one of the girls, which they couldn’t remember giving him. It was describing all sorts of marvelous wonders which I don’t think ever happened. I think he was a complete… well… fill in whatever word you want.”

Listen to the three-minute snippet from the interview below.

This isn’t the first time the Warrens have been the subject of controversy, and it will no doubt not be the last.

The Conjuring 2 opens June 10th and is based upon what the Warrens had in their case files, not the entire investigation of the occurrence, and of course some dramatic liberties had to be taken to make said happenings into a feature film. What you believe… as always… is up to you.
