When the music stops, you’ll see him in the mirror standing behind you.

If the last name Enfield feels familiar to a horror fan, it’s likely because the 2013 critical success story The Conjuring (and its upcoming sequel) detailed the paranormal and poltergeist activity a family was tortured by in their farmhouse in the north London suburb in the late ’70s. Fans loved the first so much that Hollywood quickly spun their wheels to set a sequel in motion, and now we’ll see more about the real-life terror in a new mini-series.

The three-part series, airing on A&E, already aired in England this past May. We have a synopsis and trailer here:

Inspired by the world’s most documented poltergeist incident, The Enfield Haunting — adapted from Guy Lyon Playfair’s book “This House is Haunted,” is a chilling, three-part drama series based on the terrifying and bizarre real events that took place at an ordinary house in 1977. At the heart of the story is Janet Hodgson, an 11 year-old girl terrorized by the paranormal activity permeating every room… or so she’d like everyone to believe; especially Maurice Grosse, the doting researcher who goes to great lengths to protect her from the strange, dark forces in hopes of making peace with his own daughter’s untimely death.

The mini-series stars Timothy Spall, Eleanor Worthington-Cox, Juliet Stevenson, Fern Deacon, Rosie Cavaliero, Elliot Kerley, Joey Price, and Matthew Macfayden.

Check out the first part of the mini-series on A&E on October 9th at 10pm EST.
