VICE And The Conjuring Present “The Devil’s Hour”

-What are you guys? PATRICK WILSON: Well, we’ve
been called ghost hunters, paranormal researchers. VERA FARMIGA: But we prefer to
be known simply as Ed and Lorraine Warren. LORRAINE WARREN: My
name is Lorraine Warren, and I’m a psychic. And my husband was sensitive. He wasn’t as psychic as I was. But he was sensitive. And we investigated thousands of
cases throughout the world. We’ve had some bad
experiences. I mean, really bad
experiences. [SLOW CLOCK TICKING] [HOWLING SOUND] PAUL ENO: The devil’s
hour, 3:07, 3:15, things commonly happen. And the question is why? LORRAINE WARREN: Unfortunately,
that is usually always right on when there’s
a serious haunting. TONY SPERA: People waking
up startled at 3:00 for no reason. PAUL ENO: Poltergeist playing
Frisbee with your grandma’s fine china, throwing you
across the room. TONY SPERA: Three incidences,
three whispers, somebody calling your name three times,
or three knocking sounds. RON LIVINGSTON: All night
long, just like that. PATRICK WILSON: Does
it come in three’s? RON LIVINGSTON: Yeah. PATRICK WILSON: Stops at dawn? PAUL ENO: Anything that comes
in threes would be a mockery to Christianity. PATRICK WILSON: Sometimes it’s
meant as an insult to the trinity– the father, the son,
and the holy spirit. LORRAINE WARREN: It’s the
psychic power of the night. EMILY STROIA: It’s usually
around 3:00 AM where people are most sensitive to spirit
activity or any type of paranormal activity. The veil between the spirit
world and our world is lifted, in a way. PAUL ENO: The problem arises
when you deal with the entities who are not so nice. Because everything
is out there, and they’re not all our friends. VERA FARMIGA: You have a
lot of spirits in here. But there is the one that I’m
the most worried about, because it is so hateful. EMILY STROIA: And they
are stronger. BEN ENO: Some of these things,
you can’t get rid of them. -(WHISPERING) Look what
she made me do. BEN ENO: You just have to learn
how to deal with it. [WOMAN SCREAMS] LORRAINE WARREN: Tragedy creates
the ghost syndrome. The spirits remain earthbound. They don’t know how to
accept their death. They’re looking for help, but
sometimes they don’t accept the help. -You’re all gonna die. -(WHISPERING) It’s standing
right behind you. [WOMAN SCREAMS] EMILY STROIA: It’s such
a negative energy. And it takes a lot of energy
to work with the darker spirits because they’re so
resistant to any type of smooth transition
to another side. PAUL ENO: When a murder has
occurred, or when a suicide or something terrible has
occurred, there are repercussions that echo across
the multiverse and can come out when the world boundaries
are thinner. And people attributed most
of this to the devil, particularly around 3:00 in the
morning, the devil’s hour. BEN ENO: Faith is a
powerful thing. The belief in such a time,
the devil’s hour, could be fueling its power. If you go in thinking something
spooky’s going to happen, something spooky
will probably happen. TONY SPERA: The devil wants to
remind us he’s there, that he’s around. When you wake up at 3:00, you
never know what you’re going to see at the edge
of your bed. LORRAINE WARREN: Is it because
it’s the darkest just before the dawn? I just know what I can
do to protect myself, and I have my faith. And if there’s some way, to my
knowledge, that I can help people, (WHISPERING) I love it.
