Joey King Got A Mysteriously Haunting Blood Condition On Set Of ‘The Conjuring’ by Molly Harmon

Joey King told a chilling story on The Howard Stern Show about a medical issue she developed while filming The Conjuring.

The horror movie The Conjuring is still one of the freakiest paranormal real-life stories to date. Before going into detail she said, “That movie messed me up for my whole life.”

King explained, “This is truly the root of why I am so scared of that movie. In the movie when the mom gets possessed she gets all these bruises on her. During the filming of those particular scenes, I started having a lot of bruises show up on my body.”

She played the daughter Christine and was only twelve years old when these unexplainable bruises appeared.

“The makeup ladies thought I was stealing their fake bruises, and I was like, ‘why would I do that, that’s crazy.’ They didn’t believe me. They tried to take my real bruises off with rubbing alcohol and oil.”

The plot gets darker as King continued, and the experience still visibly disturbs her seven years later. Could she have been affected by paranormal forces while this all happened?

“I got a couple (of) blood tests because they told me it looked like it could potentially be early signs of leukemia. All of a sudden, I am told that I have this blood-thinning condition called ITP. Basically most of my red platelets drained from my body mysteriously.”

King further said why this diagnosis was so odd, “I had never had a blood problem in the past, I’ve never had a blood problem since then. No one in my family has that. I was at risk of needing a blood transfusion, and they were scared to even let me work.”

The actress then had to get her blood tested twice a day during filming in an effort to monitor her platelets and help her rebuild them with iron supplements.

“Then when I came home my platelets were completely fine. I was back up to the normal numbers and I’ve never since had a trace of that disorder.”

King revealed that she Googled the spirit that was responsible to the haunting experience that inspired The Conjuring and was terrified to even write her name into the computer. She felt that she was being watched.

Thankfully King is in perfect health today, but she believes the unexplainable blood issue was due to a ghostly predicament.
