REVIEW: ‘The Conjuring : The Devil Made Me Do It’ Drops in UK Cinemas

The latest of ‘The Conjuring’ films is now available to watch in cinemas across the UK, produced by James Wan and Peter Safran.

The popular paranormal investigators Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) take on a never before seen case. After a young Julian Hilliard (David Glatzel) is possessed by an evil spirit, his future brother in law, Arne Cheyenne (Ruairi O’Connor) willingly invites the demon into his own body to get away from the child.

The repercussions of these actions becomes fatal, when Arne is accused of murder. Ed and Lorraine with a tight timeframe are fighting against the clock trying to prove that he had no choice for his actions, but will this be enough evidence to provide in front of a court?

With a wealth of experience behind them, the two will do whatever it takes to prove innocence for Arne. Lorraine is able to envision the demon responsible with her special talent, however this can open a portal to allow them into the real world, and it seems impossible to prove in order to support the case.

‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It’ fits well with the running theme of the two investigators looking into popular and interesting cases based on true stories. The trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson in November 1981, was the first known court case in the United States that the defence tried to prove innocence based on the claim of demonic possession, and denied personal responsibility for the case.

Directed by Michael Chavez, the film is spooky throughout. This is certainly a film to watch if you’re into a good scare (and 15 or over). The film follows through a flow of emotions, sadness, grief, happiness and of course, frightened. The two leads Ed and Lorraine Warren have incredible on screen chemistry making ‘The Conjuring’ series’ a brilliant and believable watch.
