In 1986 it´s the year in which the darkness begins that a New York family was about to face, Philip the eldest son of the Snedeker family is diagnosed with cancer so the family decides to move to Connecticut where the right hospital for him is located. The new house was the worst part of this story.

When renting the house it came with a condition, not throwing any object that is in the basement and that were memories, which were made up of all the stuff that a coroner needs to embalm. The basement was a funeral home from 1936 to 1980.

The basement where Philip and his brother’s room would be, was next to the old funeral home, only sliding doors separated them. Philip from the beginning began to say that there was an evil presence in the house, constantly listening to a voice of a man in the basement that said: “Philip come here”. His mother Carmen thought they were hallucinations, but he wasn´t the only one who saw things, the younger sister saw spirits in the mirror.

In an early morning Philip and his brother saw three sinister men in the darkness, who stared at them and whispered something awful, then the entities began to laugh and one of them threw one of his toys against the wall, breaking it into a thousand pieces. On another occasion, Philip came to see a boy dressed as Superman, then they learned that this boy was embalmed in the house and in his funeral he was using the superhero costume.

One of the most horrible episodes was, when under the influence of a dark entity, Philip tried to make evil things to a cousin who lived with them, so Philip was admitted to a psychiatric hospital for 45 days.

Time passed and unfortunately for its economic situation, the family couldn´t leave the house, even if the paranormal manifestations became stronger and stronger; things moved by themselves, there were inexplicable noises and the beds vibrated; It was then that they had to resort to help the Warren’s couple.

While the paranormal investigators arrived at the house, Lorraine visited the basement alone, and had a vision of a large man who was manipulating and moving the bodies. Lorraine realized that not only did they face a tormented spirit, but a demon, so she and her husband Edward called Priest Timothy Conlan, who performed an exorcism to end that diabolical entity.

After all that torment, the Snedeker family found calm, Philip found himself defeating cancer and they moved out of the house.
