It is very convincing to skeptical people.

I vaguely recall the story was about a young boy who supposedly was being repeatedly possessed by some satanic spirit.
Deborra Ann Low
It is truly terrifying to know that things like this could happen.

This book is one of three that I would rate as a "must read" if you want to learn about the demonic, house infestations, and human possession (the other two are "The Demonologist" {also by Brittle} and "Hostage to the Devil" by Malachi Martin). These books forced me to ask a most difficult question- what does God allow the demonic to do, and why does He allow it? The answer for me is that He allows more than I would ever have previously believed. This book is a gripping read, and includes a fascinating description of Ed Warren's attempt to use a binding ritual on the main demon while an exorcism ritual is being performed at another location. The demon is too powerful, and later we find out more details. If you read it, you might never listen to house and neighborhood noises around 3 AM again without some trepidation. Be prepared to view your faith differently, with a greater sense of gratitude. It's a disturbing book with a truly powerful message. One more opinion- this book is far too intense for children and even teenagers (nightmares are extremely likely)- keep it away from them.

After hearing so much about this notorious book, I finally tracked down a rather ragged old copy on e-bay. I was dying of curiosity to see what all the fuss was about regarding this book. Well, did I ever learn! First, I have to say, I was a little apprehensive about even having a copy of the book around since I see by some of these other reviews that people indicate just having it in your house can make weird things happen. But, I was brave and I got it and made it through reading the whole thing. Is it scary? Yes, it is indeed and it is probably the scariest book I've ever read but I was able to make it through it. I kept it at work and read it during break and lunch times - felt a little bit better than reading it at home late at night before bed! The truth is, there's really nothing in it that a very frightening horror movie wouldn't show you and some of it actually borders on the ridiculous - green claws coming up out of the floor, one-eyed ghouls standing eight feet tall, demons riding around on the roof of the family car or sitting out in the backyard in a lawn chair - it was almost silly in places but then, when you remember that this IS a true story - THAT is what really makes it scary! I don't doubt for one moment the authenticity of the case and I believe it did actually happen just the way they describe it. The Warrens are reputable people and I cannot believe they would make this up. The family itself seems so blandly normal that again, when you think this could happen to them - hey, it could happen to anyone. And that to me is what I find especially terrifying. You can't help but wonder all through the story too, what would you do if you found yourself in this type of an ordeal? Who can you get to help you that will believe you? What would other people think?Read more ›

I read this book when I was very young and I was afraid to go to sleep at night for many months.
Unfortunately, I lent the book to one of my childhood friends and it was never returned. I have been looking to buy this book for along time now, so I can reread it and share it with my husband who is interested in reading the book that has kept me captivated for so many years.
Anyone who is a non believer in Satan and his many minions should read this book...you will change your mind and believe!

I wouldn't describe this book as "scary". I found this book to be terrifying. Had nightmares of devils trying to possess my soul, yeah I was a bit freaked out. An *excellent* book that I couldn't put down, but if i did, I was too shaken to goto bed. If you want to scare yourself crazy, just read this book at night. The other reviews I have read confirms my belief that this is the only book that ever spooked me like nothing else before.

This is not a book for the faint of heart.I read it several years ago and promptly gave it away!I personally am not a Spiritual person of any denomination,but I can tell you that this book will frighten you worse then anything imaginable,mainly because it is based on a true story that involved the Bridgeport Catholic Archdioces and the person that was charged in the murders tried to use Demonic Posession as a Court room Defence in a Litchfield County Court House!I believe it was one of the first times this sort of Defence was offered,but was refused by the presiding Judge due to the fact there was no precedant before it.If you do choose to read it,then be prepared to be frightened just because it shows that there is truly an evil!and a good!in this world,whether you choose to believe it or not!

"The Devil In Connecticut" is every bit as frightening as "The Exorcist" and even scarier since it is allegedly true!
I read it when I was doing laundry at the laundromat, and even in that mundane setting, I felt completely freaked out.
I think the Warrens were also involved with Amityville horror, but I might be wrong.
The description of the possession is absolutely terrifying, and when you find out the reason that this family was singled out for this it is even more scary.
