The trailer for The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is here. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga made their onscreen debuts as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren in the 2013 James Wan directed film that went on to become a sleeper hit. Wan directed The Conjuring 2 in 2016 to similar acclaim, launching a multi-pronged franchise in the process. From The Nun and Annabelle to 2019’s The Curse of La Llorona, The Conjuring franchise has become a staple of the horror genre in the 21st century. Now, the Warren’s are set to return for the first time in five years for their darkest chapter yet.
The Devil Made Me Do It will follow the case of Arne Johnson, a man who killed his landlord and claimed demonic possession as a defense. First, though, the Warren’s will have to contend with the young boy who is originally possessed by the demon before passing it onto Johnson and it could take its toll on Lorraine like never before. Farmiga’s character has been shown to be increasingly affected by each case and The Devil Made Me Do It will likely continue that pattern and change The Conjuring franchise for good.
Now, the first look at the film has been released. In the clip, the Warren’s head to Connecticut to work on the case of Johnson, but things aren’t what they seem when they get there. The family has been cursed and Ed Warren implores to those that don’t believe Johnson’s defense that people may need to start believing in the devil.

When the Warren’s arrive to help Johnson, it certainly seems as if they will have their hands full. Not only must they convince people that demonic possession could have played a part in his case, but the demon in question is still haunting the family. The Warren’s have dealt with numerous cases throughout their career, but there’s something different about this one, evidenced by the fact that Lorraine Warren seems to be, once again, a little too connected to the spiritual world for her own good.
How they will fare against this latest threat remains to be seen, but director Michael Chaves says The Conjuring 3 is the biggest and darkest entry yet. While the films that follow that Warren’s typically adapt real-life cases, they clearly take some liberties when telling the stories, adding some truly horrifying moments to up the ante. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It‘s trailer has no shortage of those moments and that could be just the tip of the iceberg. If this latest film is anything like the previous installments, things will only get more terrifying from here.
