The family tries to ignore this event until the oldest daughter gets attacked in her room by a spirit. Carolyn finds Ed and Lorraine Warren and asks them for help. The moment Lorraine steps into the house she senses an evil presence. After the initial investigation, they decide that they should get involved.
