Ed & Lorraine Warren

Ed & Lorraine WarrenTogether Ed and Lorraine Warren worked many cases related to demonic possessions and negative or violent spectral entities. Ed frequently described himself as a demonologist while Lorraine claimed that her talents lay in the fields of clairvoyance and trance mediumship. Together they made several appearances on ‘A Haunting’ a show produced by the Discovery Channel, where they worked under the title of paranormal investigators. Together they also established the New England Society for Psychic Research which opened its doors on 1952, closely followed by the Occult Museum. They have co-authored a number of books about their investigations as well as about other supernatural phenomena. They claimed that over the course of their career they have performed more than ten thousand investigations into alleged haunting, including the famous Amityville case.


This was probably the most famous case of their whole career. Katy and George Lutz claimed that they were being tormented in their home by a vengeful spirit, possibly even a demonic presence such was the fear that the entity aroused in the family. The events that tormented the family became so violent that they were forced to leave their property. The case served as the foundation for a number of feature films and books, and despite all of the publicity that the case created it has never really been either authenticated as a true paranormal incident or proven to be a fraud.

The pair also claim to have performed several exorcisms, one of which was claimed to be that of a ‘werewolf demon’ that had taken over the body of an innocent man named Bill Ramsey, causing him to bite several people in his local community. However the debate is still open on whether this was a case of mental illness rather than demonic possession. Yet another case that the Warrens were consulted on, the haunting relating to the Smurl family was also turned into a feature film titled ‘The Haunted’.

Open to Criticism

There are those that believe that the events and incidents that occurred in all of the cases linked to the Warrens have been exaggerated for financial gain on their part, and that of the home owners. Yet there are those that know that such claims of haunting and possessions rarely start without some trigger. There must be some real element of paranormal activity in order for the subject to reach the ears of a paranormal investigator in the first place, something that sets the ball rolling.

Very rarely does a haunting or other such incident come with its own set of measurable and quantifiable data, the events are open to the interpretation of those with the ability to communicate with the spirit realm, which is hardly verifiable. A paranormal investigator is required to be a neutral observer of the events that are taking place and there are some that believe that when it came to the Warren’s they placed their own religious beliefs before the cold hard facts as they were presented, which has damaged their credibility over the years.
