Between 1977 and 1979, single mother Peggy Hodgson and her daughters Janet, 11, and Margaret, 13, allegedly experienced one of the most terrifying hauntings of all time. Known as the Enfield Poltergeist, the case made headlines across the United Kingdom and attracted the attention of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, among others. Witnesses to the inexplicable events claimed they saw the Hodgson sisters levitate, heavy furniture move on its own and heard guttural disembodied voices in the Hodgsons’ home. Controversial to this day, the incident sparked endless examination and speculation, inspiring the BBC’s infamous 1992 Ghostwatch broadcast and the highly fictionalized retelling of the Warrens’ involvement, The Conjuring 2.
