Back in 2013, director James Wan introduced us to paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren with the start of a new horror franchise called The Conjuring. The real Ed Warren died in 2006 and Lorraine has long since retired, but it seems that the pair's talents are needed once again following a bizarre turn of events in India.
During a screening of the hit horror sequel in the town of Tiruvannamalai, a 65-year-old man suffered a heart attack during one of the film's scariest scenes. The Times of India reports that after the man fainted, he was rushed to hospital but was unfortunately proclaimed dead on arrival.
While it's clearly a tragic story, the man's death doesn't quite warrant an investigation from the Warren's. However, what happened after is far stranger.
Following his death at the hospital, staff asked a friend to transport his body to the Tiruvannamalai Government Medical College Hospital for post-mortem examination. Reports testify that the man was seen taking the body using an auto rickshaw, but the spooky thing is that he never arrived at his destination and has now been reported as officially missing.
Police are now investigating the disappearances of both the man and the dead body, interviewing local drivers in their search.
While there's surely a logical explanation for this, the unusual nature of the case has led some to wonder whether the demonic forces depicted in The Conjuring 2 are responsible for the bizarre disappearances and perhaps even the man's death in the first place.
No nun sightings have been reported as of yet, but we'd love the 89-year-old Lorraine Warren to dust off her paranormal investigating gloves and take the next flight to India anyway. We could very well be looking at the basis of The Conjuring 3.
The Conjuring 2 topped the box office in its first week of release, but it's hard to tell whether this bizarre case will encourage more people to seek the film out or avoid it entirely.
