Check out the new featurette that will provide the fans with an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at the making of James Wan’s The Conjuring Universe. The video comes with interviews from Wan and many members of the cast and filmmakers within the Conjuring universe.
The video gives us the very first look at director Michael Chaves’ upcoming movie The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. Starring Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga who are coming back as Ed and Lorraine Warren in the movie and it has been revealed that this will be a “completely different movie than the first two.”
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It will come with a new “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.”
The rest of the cast includes Ruairi O’Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, and Julian Hilliard in the movie.
If you’re new to the franchise and do not know the real story that this movie is based on, the story based around Arne Cheyenne Johnson. On November 24th, 1981, in Brookfield, Connecticut, Arne Cheyenne Johnson was convicted of first-degree murder for killing his landlord, Alan Bono. This is the first court case in the United States in which the defense tried to prove innocence based upon the defendant’s plea of demonic possession and rejection of personal liability for the crime.
According to testimony by the Glatzel family, 11-year-old David Glatzel had allegedly played host to the demon that forced Johnson to kill Bono. After witnessing a number of increasingly ominous occurrences involving David, the family, exhausted and terrified, decided to enlist the aid of self-described demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren (noted for their investigation into the famed Amityville Haunting) in a last-ditch effort to “cure” David. The Glatzel family, along with the Warrens, then proceeded to have David exorcised by a number of Catholic priests. The process continued for several days, concluding when, according to those present, a demon fled the child’s body and took up residence within Johnson. Several months later, Johnson killed his landlord during a heated conversation. His defense lawyer argued in court that he was possessed, but the judge ruled that such a defense could never be proven and was therefore infeasible in a court of law. Johnson was subsequently convicted, though he only served five years of a 10- to 20-year sentence.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It will hit theaters on June 4th, 2021. This is going to be awesome, can’t wait to watch it.
