Lorraine claims to be a psychic who can communicate with spirits. Many people swear they are "the real deal" - in particular devout Christians; according to Ed Warren, one has to believe in God in order to understand the couple's research.
But other writers and skeptics have discovered outright fabrications in their claims. Let's find out the real stories behind The Conjuring , The Amityville Horror , Annabelle , and more.
Note: The intention of this list is not to question the existence of supernatural entities, nor to assert that the families investigated by the Warrens are also frauds or in any way co-conspirators of hoaxes.
Moreover - because who doesn't love a good ghost story - it is the Warrens's intertwining of Catholicism into their own folklore that make them highly questionable figures, because they aren't only preying upon people's fears, they're also preying upon their faith.

According to a interview with the Connecticut Post , Steve Novella and Perry DeAngelis investigated the Warrens for the New England Skeptical Society NESS.
They found the couple to be pleasant people, but their claims of demons and ghosts to be "at best, as tellers of meaningless ghost stories, and at worst, dangerous frauds.
They watched the videos and looked at the best evidence the Warrens had. They're not doing good scientific investigation; they have a predetermined conclusion which they adhere to, literally and religiously," according to Novella.
Lorraine Warren said that the problem with Perry and Steve "is they don't base anything on a God". Novella responded, "It takes work to do solid, critical thinking, to actually employ your intellectual faculties and come to a conclusion that actually reflects reality That's what scientists do every day, and that's what skeptics advocate".
In an article for The Sydney Morning Herald that examined whether supernatural films are really based on true events, that investigation was used as evidence to the contrary.
As Novella is quoted, "They [the Warrens] claim to have scientific evidence which does indeed prove the existence of ghosts, which sounds like a testable claim into which we can sink our investigative teeth.
What we found was a very nice couple, some genuinely sincere people, but absolutely no compelling evidence On December 13, , a woman by the name of Judith Penney claimed that she had an underaged, amorous love affair with Ed starting when she was 15 and he was in his mids with Lorraine's knowledge.
Penney claimed that Ed called her "the love of his life" multiple times and that she was pregnant with Ed's child only to get an abortion in In addition to investigations, Lorraine ran The Warrens' Occult Museum now closed  in the back of her house in Monroe, Connecticut with the help of her son-in-law, Tony Spera.
