The biggest modern horror franchise returns with the new trailer for The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. The third instalment of the main franchise that has spawned The Nun, three Annabelle films, and The Curse of La Llorona, is taking the story in a different direction. Unlike the first two films (directed by James Wan), which were predominately haunted house stories, the third Conjuring takes on more of an investigative framework, and then all the spooky nightmarish things happen.
Delayed from its original release last September due to COVID, US fans will be able to watch the movie on HBO Max as well as cinemas on the same day. Starring Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ruairi O’Connor, and John Noble, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It arrives in cinemas on June 4, check out the trailer below. Meanwhile, Patrick Wilson is due to make his directorial debut with the upcoming Insidious 5, Wilson will also reprise his role from the first two movies alongside Ty Simpkins who played his son. Insidious 5 is due for release sometime next year.
“The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” reveals a chilling story of terror, murder and unknown evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. One of the most sensational cases from their files, it starts with a fight for the soul of a young boy, then takes them beyond anything they’d ever seen before, to mark the first time in U.S. history that a murder suspect would claim demonic possession as a defense.
Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson return to star as Lorraine and Ed Warren, under the direction of Michael Chaves (“The Curse of La Llorona”). The film also stars Ruairi O’Connor (Starz’ “The Spanish Princess”), Sarah Catherine Hook (Hulu’s “Monsterland”) and Julian Hilliard (the series “Penny Dreadful: city of Angels” and “The Haunting of Hill House”).
